Ladies, let’s get real. A strapless bra can both be a blessing and a curse! There is nothing more satisfying than finding the perfect one, that goes with those beautiful strapless dresses and off-shoulder tops. However, hunting for the perfectly fitted strapless bra, that does not fall off or is not insanely tight, is a nightmare. So here are a few important tips to bear in mind when you’re out bra shopping!
If you don’t want to keep pulling at your bra awkwardly, this is important. You need to know your size, especially if you’re planning to buy a strapless bra. Most of us don’t wear the correct bra size. Get yourself some professional help and figure out the right number. Trust us, the proper size will make the fit look so much better and feel amazing!

Sometimes, even the wide band does not really hold up. So it is wise to opt for a strapless bra that has a longline. This style helps in supporting your bust and holds the strapless bra in its place. Added bonus? It also gives maximum lift and push up!

Although, I would not recommend this on a daily basis, silicone cups inside the seam of your strapless bra can help hold it together, maintaining the shape of the bust and making it stick to your body. For strapless bras, it is essential to stick to the body as much as possible for a good shape and extra push up support. However, be careful, you could be allergic to silicone products that might cause scarring and rashes.
POPxo Recommends: Get your hands on this N-Gal Beige Silicone Push-Up Stick-On Bra (Rs. 659) from Myntra - a perfect pick to wear underneath your off-shoulder dresses and tops.
It goes without saying - it is extremely important to try it before you buy it! You must try it on correctly though. The ‘scooping’ method helps. After putting on your bra, lean forward and pull your boobs forward into the cups, tightly. This will help you determine if you’ve scored the correct size and fit.
POPxo Recommends: Try this cool Push Up Strapless Bra (1,192) from Jabong - a good option for everyday use.
Ladies, this is one of the most common mistakes that we make while wearing a strapless number. Never use a body lotion, oils, baby powder or body spray if you want your bra to remain secure in its place and not slip.
