These are what I call my “sticky boobs.” Since I have real boobs I need a little help in the cleavage department. When I’m modeling I also need a bra that I can wear with ANY style top or dress. The first time I saw these was when I was on set visiting a friend that was on the TV show “Deal or No Deal.” Since the girls where always wearing some sort of cleavage showing dress, these bras where a must-have for most of the girls. I was a little confused, by these at first. They do what? Stick to my boobs? How? Really? And they look weird!?
They stick to your skin with a reusable adhesive layer and there are no straps and no back, which makes it possible to wear them with any style top. Even a sheer tops can be worn with these since they come in a skin toned silicone cup (for added size), or an un-padded nude cloth material (for girls that don’t need padding).
I need to be fast with changing outfits because I shoot for a lot of catalogs/online stores where lots of merchandise needs to be photographed in the most efficient amount of time possible. Changing my bra for each outfit is not practical nor efficient, and it’s a really huge pain for me to have to do. The sticky boobs make my job and changing so much easier. Plus they make my girls look so much better in photos!
I originally ordered them from Nu Bra brand, but have since found them for so much cheaper at Target in the lingerie section. I like both styles of sticky boobs and wear both for different occasions.
I wear these at almost every photo shoot that I do! And I wanted to share this modeling secret of mine with you!
They are totally reusable and the stickiness lasts quite a long time. Now, since I wear mine often, (every time I shoot) I go through them pretty quickly. I wash it with hand soap and water every so often, and the stickiness usually lasts me a few months. For normal wear I would guess it would last you twice as long. I go through about 3 a year because eventually the lose their adhesive qualities. I am always wearing bronzing lotions- which isn’t good for the adhesive, so I don’t recommend it.
To wash them:
The only issue I ever run into with these is when I’m on a location shoot and I get really hot, and start to sweat. If you are a sweaty person, or are going to wear them when it’s really hot out, don’t! They will fall right off! With any sweat or moisture between the adhesive and your skin, the stickiness will not work.
They also make them now in fancier styles, like lace, and in different colors if you want one a little sexier than just nude. They also make darker ones for different skin tones. You can buy them at nubra.com. I don’t like the layout of their website very much, it’s hard to navigate around and looks kind of amateur, but I have ordered some from there and I was very happy with my purchases.
Here are a few examples from a recent photo shoot where I am wearing them.
I’m wearing the sticky boobs with these dresses, and it gives me more cleavage and there are no visible straps.
I’m wearing them under this see-through top:
And I’m also wearing them under this dress with the strappy back:
With all of these top styles it would be difficult to wear them with a normal bra, or even a strapless bra. So next time you need a bra solution for a top or dress that you can’t wear a normal bra with, consider this option!
