Skin Prep for Applying Sticky Bras for Maximum Lift and Hold

Follow these preplacement tips from Bring It Up’s experts to get the best adhesion and long life for your Breast Shaper Sticky Bra. Proper skin prep is the first step to guarantee impressive lift and hold. We've all heard horror stories of women who have had their adhesive bra fall off on the dance floor. Check out these tips so you can be sure to avoid this type of embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at your special event.

Below are Bring It Up’s best practices for the highest adhesion for the Breast Shaper.


  1. Start with clean, dry skin that is void of any residue. Silicone will not perform to its highest standard of use if there is oil, lotion, powder, or dirt on the breast. These elements degrade all silicone adhesive bras and nipple covers because they gum up the adhesive. So, it is imperative that you have no oils, lotions, make-up, or powder on the skin before application of the Breast Shapers.  This might seem like common sense, but what some people don’t know is that MOST body washes and bar soaps and especially hair conditioners used in the shower list oil as one of their top ingredients. 
  2. Check your soap!! Some very common soaps and shower gels that have oil and/or lotion in them are Oil of Olay, Caress, Dove, CeraVe and Eucerin to name only a few. Soap is so drying to the skin, that is it very common to add a moisturizing ingredient, but some brands have a higher level than others. Unfortunately, these oils and lotions that make your skin feel so soft are the same ones that will make your sticky bra lose its stickiness.
  3. Wash your hands!! Always make sure your hands are clean before handling the breast shaper or any adhesive product. Body oil, hair gels and conditioners, powder, hand lotion and especially make-up are easily deposited on the adhesive by touching the shapers with any of these on your hands. 
  4. Apply rubbing alcohol. Celebrity stylists use this trick whenever using adhesives on the body.  Apply a small amount of common rubbing oil to a cotton ball and apply on the breast but not on the areola/nipple area.  This will decimate any oils that may lingering on the skin.

With proper skin preparation, high quality silicone adhesive bras adhere exceptionally well to skin and they make your breasts look great without a bra which frees you to wear all of the gorgeous backless, strapless, or side-less tops and dresses that you love. When you are shopping for a sticky bra remember that Bring It Up uses an exclusive and proprietary silicone to produce the Breast Shapers. They provide impressive lift, plus full nipple coverage, modesty, and great shape.
