The 10 Best Strapless Bras That Stay Hidden

Any girl who loves to dress up knows the full value of comfortable and reliable strapless bras. These versatile bra designs are perfect for supporting your chest under formalwear or any other dresses or shirts with a halter, off-shoulder, or sleeveless design.

But as all chests are different, so too are all the strapless bra designs available for bra-wearers today. So naturally, when you’re looking for the best strapless bras in Australia, it pays to familiarise yourself with bra sizes and size conversions across different designers. As strapless bras either don’t come with shoulder straps or are designed to be worn comfortably without them, ensuring that you’re securing the right cup and band size is vital to securing the best strapless bra for your needs.

Best Strapless Bra For Older Women

Much like the Fine Lines Refined 6-Way Low-Cut Strapless Bra, Triumph’s Beautiful Silhouette Strapless Bra provides exceptional shape and support without the need for shoulder straps. What sets this particular strapless bra apart (and makes it one of the best strapless bras for older women) is its smooth, moulded cups with superb underband support. The Triumph Beautiful Silhouette bra truly lives up to its name, and is an ideal choice for those looking for bras to support sagging breasts.

The Triumph Beautiful Silhouette Bra can also be worn with shoulder straps and in two different ways: a standard look or a criss-cross look that allows this bra to be worn comfortably under halter neck dresses.

3. Nudi Boobies – Invisible Bra

Best Backless Strapless Bra

From the team at Secrets Weapons, comes our next recommendation for the best strapless bras available today: The Nudi Boobies Invisible Bra. This innovative strapless bra is the ultimate solution for those looking for exceptional support without any visible back straps or bands.

This silicone bra is designed to be placed right on your breasts and secured in place with the support of a front clasp. Upon securing the clasp, the Nudi Boobies won’t just hold your breasts securely in place, but can even provide an extra lift or push up effect by bringing your breasts together. And best of all, the Nudi Boobies can be worn and worn again, making it a comparatively more valuable investment than your pharmacy-brand boob tape.

Colours: Nude

Sizes: A, B, C, D, E


4. Fine Lines Memory Strapless Bra

Best Black Strapless Bra

Looking for the best strapless bra to wear under your little black dress? Then you’ll find lots to love about the Fine Lines Memory Strapless Bra. Constructed with non-crease memory foam cupping that’s light to touch but still exceptionally supportive, the Fine Lines Memory Strapless Bra can be worn in four different ways: halter, strapless, criss-cross, and in the standard style.

With underwire and side boning to offer additional structure and support, this particular strapless bra is renowned for holding its shape well after washing and packing, making it an ideal bra to take along with you for a destination wedding or even for a romantic holiday getaway. No matter where you’re heading to or what occasion you’re looking to dress for, however, the Fine Lines Memory Strapless Bra will help ensure that you have all the support you need.

5. Wacoal Red Carpet Strapless Bra

Most Comfortable Strapless Bra

There’s a certain amount of engineering knowhow required when developing the best strapless bras to suit a wide range of different body types. And whoever should be credited with the development of Wacoal’s Red Carpet Strapless Bra definitely deserves a Nobel prize for their contributions to the field of engineering.

In all seriousness though, the support that this particular strapless bra is capable of providing truly is second to none. Alongside boasting an extensive range of inclusive bra sizes, the Red Carpet Strapless Bra is also fitted with intelligent design features, including a flattering, rounded cup shape that naturally prevents spillage, sturdy underwires that offer additional support from the bra’s flexible and comfortable elasticated underband, and (best of all) silicone strips across the bust band that hold this bra perfectly in place when worn without straps.

Suffice to say, all bodies will feel red carpet-ready when they don this fittingly named strapless bra.

Colours: Nude

Band sizes: 8 - 22

Cup sizes: C - F

6. Boob Tape - Invisible

Best Strapless Bra-Free Support

Anybody who owns a strapless bra knows that you really do need more than one to accommodate a wide range of different looks. After all, we have different bras in our intimates drawer to ensure we have access to different effects. Push-up bras are there for when we need a little extra shape and lift, and sports bras are there when we need to feel supported. And with 5 metres of Boob Tape in every package, you can use this versatile bra-free support product for dozens upon dozens of formal or other ‘braless’ looks.

But what if you can’t find a strapless bra that provides the shape or even just the effect that you need? That’s where Boob Tape comes into the equation. Alongside being hypoallergenic and safe to apply directly on the skin, Boob Tape is also of a medical grade and designed to be invisible. This means that you can apply your Boob Tape in a range of different configurations. You can lift, flatten, reduce chest movement, or even create cleavage by simply applying your Boob Tape in different ways. 

And on that topic, Boob Tape is also super easy to apply, with minimal skin prep required. Boob Tape can also be layered over itself without appearing as too bulky, because the tape itself is super thin and lightweight despite being extra strong and durable as well.

7. Elomi Smooth Strapless Bra

Best Strapless Bra For Larger Busts

Strapless bras aren’t just for small breasts. In fact, some of the best bras for larger busts that we’ve outlined in this blog in the past have even made appearances on this list. But what do our expert bra fitters say is the best strapless bra for larger breasts? 

The answer to this question (and without any contest) has to be the Elomi Smooth Strapless Bra. With its flattering sweetheart neckline and rounded, foam-moulded cups, the Elomi Smooth Strapless Bra is designed to provide exceptional coverage and support with zero strapping. This heavy-duty strapless bra is able to stay firmly in place because of its expertly designed shape as well as the addition of Stay4Sure silicone coating on the elastic at the top of the back and on the underband of this bra.

The Elomi Smooth Strapless Bra delivers when it comes to versatility of fit as well, thanks to its four rows of wider spaced hook and eye closures, and multiple strap connecting locations.

Colours: Sahara, Black

Band sizes: 10 - 20

Cup sizes: DD - H

8. Triumph Body Make-Up Essentials

Best Strapless Bra For A Cups & Smaller Busts

So now that we’ve had a look at the best strapless bra for larger busts, let’s look at its A cup-friendly counterpart. In determining the best strapless bra for smaller busts, two key considerations need to be made. 

First, you’ll need to look at whether the strapless bra is able to provide enough natural shape to your smaller bust. That way, the strapless bra will be able to accentuate your natural curves under a strapless dress or an off-shoulder look. Secondly, you’ll want a strapless bra that comes with additional straps and multiple strap configurations – just so you can wear this bra for a range of different looks. 

Thankfully, the Triumph Body Make-Up Essentials strapless bra ticks both of these boxes. Not only does its smooth, moulded cups provide exceptional shape, but its additional straps can be worn in either halter or standard styles, meaning you can wear this flexible strapless bra in three different ways.

Colours: Nude, Black

Band sizes: 10 - 16

Cup sizes: A - D
