The Best Strapless Bra That Stays Up!

Have an occasion or night out that requires a strapless bra?

Are you NOT wearing certain tops and dresses because you don’t want to wear one?

And when you do wear one, are you constantly adjusting yourself throughout the day? 

Today, I’ve got you covered: the Wacoal Red Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra.

It is the best strapless bra I have ever worn. But don’t take my word on it, not only has our community has loved it for years, but it is on every single “best strapless bra list”.

This thing deserves the hype.

There is a common misconception that a bra’s straps are what keeps it up and in place.

But the truth is that the band that wraps around you, when properly fitted, matter most.

The basis of any great outfit is appropriate undergarments.

We all need a little bit of extra help.

And after three babies, I need all the lift, support and shaping I can get.

This bra not only stays up all day and night without having to fuss and put yourself back together constantly, but it’s comfortable.

It has molded underwires and very light padding that contours to your body. The gripper strips on the inside help it stays up and in place.

It also comes with removable straps, that you can wear conventionally, has a halter or crisscrossed on your back.

Nordstrom currently has the best inclusive-size range and color selection, going up to a size 44G.

My best advice, especially if you haven’t been properly measured for a bra in a few years, is to head to the store and have someone help you.

Most women are wearing the wrong size bra, and when one fits correctly it makes all the difference in the world.

Or, you can follow the steps in this article and do it at home before you order. 

Quality undergarments significantly impact the way your clothes look on your body and how you feel in them.

So I always put them in the “spend” category, especially bras.

Three years ago I starting having a shoulder problem and was experiencing a lot of pain from my bras with straps. I went to Nordstrom and the woman helping me recommended this bra. I was so thankful and bought four! I wore them as my everyday bras for a year! After shoulder surgery and PT I am back in regular bras. Now I have to find an everyday bra as great as the Red Carpet!

I am a many year disciple of the Wacoal strapless bra.

I have to admit I don’t understand the hype around this bra… everyone highly recommends. So I tried it. Yes it stays up better than any others I’ve ever tried. It was also literally the most painful bra I’ve ever tried on so I ended up having to return. Painful as in I couldn’t get it off fast enough, and even forced myself to wear a few hours which was pure torture 🤣

I did recently have a bra fitting at Nordstroms, so I know I was trying the right size. Didn’t find a single strapless that worked for me, so I’m sticking with what I have (Spanx and VS), neither of which I love, but I have to have a strapless and can’t find anything that’s better 🤷🏻‍♀️

If a bra is even slightly uncomfortable, let alone painful, you're in the wrong size. Like in clothing, sizes run differently in every brand; frustrating, I know. So you're not one size in all bras. Just like I can be anywhere from a size 8 - 12, depending on the manufacturer. In the future, to avoid discomfort, try several different sizes to find your best fit.

I would love your recommendation for a smaller chest, I'm a 34A, in my earlier years I may have been able to get away with no bra, but now I am almost 50 and have nursed 3 babies, going without is not an option and findingsomethingthatdoesn'tend up at my waist within the hour has been challenging. The Wacoal's smallest cup is B. TIA
