Simply Fab: Maidenform Breakthrough Backless Bra

I've seen a lot of bras in my lifetime, but none like this Maidenform Breakthrough Backless Bra ($25).

A lot of bras claim to be backless, but this first-ever design is a completely backless bra. So your first question is, "How does it stay put?" Well, there's silicone on the wire channeling to prevent slippage. The seamless foam cups provide a natural shape, so this is probably not a good option for those who seek major cleavage. This bra will put an end to the issues we face when wearing an open-back dress . . . finally!

On a side note, doesn't the model look like actress Teri Hatcher?

Not all A's and B's would rather go braless. I think I'm gonna try it. It is cheap.

Soooo... what's the use of this one? A's and B's would rather go braless, judging by the comments, and C's and up don't trust its support. So who again would wear it? :/

I still don't see how this would stay put..or provide support.

I'm just concerned that if this bra is worn too often it could cause curvature of the shoulders. If this is true then I wouldn't risk getting a slouch for this bra.

Is this the bra I saw on American Inventor? If it is, it was designed by a large breasted woman and is both comfortable and supportive in consumer testing. I think it's great because a lot of women have beautiful backs even if they are heavier. A nice way to be subtly sexy without showing off too much.

I agree with julieulie. I, unfortunately, paid for mine and got it in the mail a few days ago. Excitedly, I took it out and tried it on immediately. What a disappointment. Like what julieulie said, just move a little bit and move your arms from your side, and the bra slides up your chest, exposing your breasts from underneath, offering no coverage whatsoever. 'Am returning it. =(

doesnt look like it gives much support, plus everyones bra straps never always stay in place anyways right? wonder why they are not showing a front view. ;]

Was this product designed by a MAN? or maybe a Monkey? Because it obviously wasn't designed by women with actual breasts! It'll never stay against your skin, there's nothing to make it hold anything up!

This DOES NOT WORK!! If you are small enough to go braless, then you are probably fine (but if you can go braless, why would you need this?). But I was mailed one to test and give them my honest opinion, and my honest opinion was that the product sucked and even though I got the bra for free, it wasn't even worth my time to fill out the form. You have to walk like a board, and it barely supports your breasts. Lean forward or to the side, and they pop out the bottom and the underwire winds up on top of your breasts. You couldn't pay me enough money to actually ever WEAR this thing -- I was embarrassed enough trying to wear it in my own apartment in front of only my fiance. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

I wouldn't trust this bra. Bras are supposed to provide support in the band, not in the straps.

when i go backless it tends to be in a halter style, so this wouldn't really work for most of my backless dresses. that being said, it's still a fantastic idea. and yes, the model looks a lot like Teri Hatcher...there is a model in the victoria secret catalog that reminds me of Terri...maybe it's the same model.

I'd be interested to see how it feels on, and if it really does get past the slippage problem. Yeah, she does look like Teri Hatcher about 10 or so years ago.
