This will keep the bra from falling off and give a lot of firm support to your strapless bra. Simply attach the single strap from one side and wrap it around the bottom of the bra to keep the bra at its place.
You can use a cheap old bra, cut the straps and get it sewn in your backless dress. It will eliminate the need of wearing a strapless bra at all.
5. Store them the Proper Way
Storing your bras properly can increase the life of bra!! You can hang them all on one hanger or wooden hooks and save the space.

Hand washes the bras to maximize their lives. Also hang them using a hanger to dry them off.
When you are done working out, hand wash your sports bra and use a salad spinner to dry your bras. It is much faster than air drying and will also keep the delicate safe.
If you still want to use the machine, use the micro mesh bra wash bag and keep the pieces safe.
7. Tune The Cleavage
There are times when you want to show off your cleavage a little!! The evening gowns and the deep plunge tops often demand a little show. Use a push-up bra with smaller gores(the gap between the cups), it will do the trick.
Other times when you want more coverage, a full coverage bra with larger gores will do the job.
8. Finish that Cleavage Show
How many times did you change your tops just because they showed a lot of cleavage and you didn’t want to wear those bulky camisoles? The designers have got a solution to this problem with the wonderful camisole cover ups that work fine in such a die-hard situation. These come in a variety of colors.
Use a camp and clips with your bra to cover up the deep plunge tops and deep necklines.
9. Undercover Bra Stash for Security
When you are having an overnight travel or out in a theft prone area, use a bra stash to keep your money and important documents.
You can clasp the stash here or there as per your liking and be safe!!
10. Try before you Buy
Do you know that more than half of the population of women wears the wrong bra size throughout their lives and doesn’t even know it?
Here we give you simple hacks to check if the bra you’re trying on is perfect for you.
Also use your hands to test the size of the bra before you buy it. If you manage to have your whole fist through the bra, it is too big. Two fingers are just fine.
Always buy a bra that fits right in the first hook. That way you can later keep decreasing the band size in the other hooks if the bra loosens up.
11. Use the Oldies as the newbies!!
Perhaps those old bras that you have been stashing have still a lot of talent left in there. Use these simple hacks to make them useful if you are too much in love with them to throw them away.
Use a bra extender if your old bra has the perfect cup size but has tightened from the hooks. It just gives you your priced piece back as new!!
If you think your bra is too big for you or has loosened from the back and you have to find a private spot to get back those strap at place again and again, cut the end of the bra with a seam ripper and attach it using a fabric glue at the right place and get it back as you wanted.
12. Repairing the broken Wires
If in case the underwire of your bra pops out, no need to throw the piece away. We get you some simple last moment hacks to save you from the disaster.
Use the moleskin strips which are very soft and sticky from the back. Add some glue to the bigger holes and shove the wire carefully back into the encasing. Then simply glue the moleskin strips.
You can also use a maxi pad and cut it into small strips. It will last longer and give the right cushioning.
13. Pick the Right Color
White Outfits: Wearing a white bra underneath a white outfit looks messy and often shows. Always wear a nude shade or the shade of your skin for proper coverage.
Black Outfits: Underneath black dresses and tops, never wear white bra as it shows(especially under flash!!). Choose a dark color bra or a black bra underneath black outfits.

If you want to wear a dress with a low back, then a bra strap converter is a great investment. You can attach this item to the bra that you already have and this will pull down the back strap of your bra and fasten it securely in the front. This way the back of your bra will not be visible in a dress with a low back.
Classic bras are hard to wear under racerback tanks.
Slide a bobby pin over both the straps, connecting them together. Add a second bobby pin to create an X formation and hold your straps in place all day. You can also do this hack with a safety pin, paper clip, or plastic bra clip.
So you can either use wide band elastic like i've used here this is three quarter inch band elastic
Take a regular bra strap (like an extra one from a bra with removable straps), and hook it onto the back of your bra on one side, bring it around your back and hook it onto the back of your bra on the other side. It's super easy and creates a great strapless bra.
Here are three ideas: Stick bra straps temporarily to your skin using fashion tape. Keep bra straps in place using silicone bra strap cushioned holders. Use clear straps on your bras and they will be less noticeable.
HOW TO HIDE BRA STRAPS WITH A PAPERCLIP FAST - YouTube
Wear a camisole, high-neck bra, or bandeau bra made from a nice material, like lace or silk, underneath your dress. If you choose a color and fabric that complements your dress, it should blend in seamlessly. Alternatively, buy a removable dress panel that will clip or snap onto your bra straps and cover your cleavage.
Take a great-fitting bra from your closet and cut off the sidebands so you have 2 cups that have fabric connecting them. Then, lay the bra facing up and squeeze fabric glue along the edges. Press the bra onto the inside of your backless dress where your chest is. Let the glue dry completely before you put the dress on.
Bra is the Incorrect Size or Fit
First and foremost, size matters. Even a t-shirt style bra which typically touts a “no-line” appearance due to smooth, often molded cups can cause show through if it's not sized properly.
