Supportive and well fitting

I have been looking for a wearable strapless bra my whole life and I finally found one. I love the wider band on this bra. Everything looks smooth under dresses and it creates a great shape. The padding in the cups is perfect, not too much, not too little. It’s a great strapless if you are a D cup, which until now I thought was impossible to find.

The best

I have tried so many strapless bras, but this one is my absolute favorite! This was my first purchase from lively so I was hesitant, now I wish I bought sooner. I feel that this bra is true to size and looks so flattering on. I will say I can see why they say in the description to get your sister size if you’re in between band sizes. The band fit me great, but if I was in between sizes it would have been too tight. I can’t wait to try more bras from lively!

Good, but not the best they offer.

I purchased this bra along with the lace strapless, and while it's a perfectly good bra, I definitely prefer the lace version. I really appreciate the 4 hook-closure in the back, the added boning, and extra straps that come with the bra. My only real critique with the bra is the thickness of the cup and lack of no-slip grip at the top of the cups like on the strapless version. I would definitely nip through this bra on a cold day. All things considered though it is a good quality bra and it fits true to size.

Large cup size approved!

I ordered this is several sizes to get the right fit. As someone who is usually a DD, strapless bras suck. This one does pretty well staying secure though. I’m usually a 36 DD in lively and ended up keeping the 38 D as that had the best coverage/support for me

A strapless that actually stays up!

I love this strapless, super comfortable and the bra actually stays up! No slipping or pulling up throughout the day.

Bra Sizing Guide

Not sure about your bra size? Don’t sweat it! Measuring yourself at home is simple, but if you need a little extra help, you can meet with one of our fit experts face to face by scheduling a Virtual Styling Session or Fit Appointment at one of our stores!

Before we start you will need a few things:

  • A soft measuring tape
  • A mirror
  • Your best fitting, least padded bra

STEP 1

Stand in front of a mirror wearing your best fitting, least padded bra and use a soft measuring tape to measure your band size:

  • Wrap the measuring tape around your back just below your shoulder blades and just under your bust.
  • Make sure that the measuring tape is parallel to the floor. Pull the tape measure tight against your ribcage and take note of that measurement.
  • If your measurement is an odd number, add 1, if it's an even number, add 2
    • Ex: 35 inches rounds up to 36
    • Ex: 32 inches rounds up to 34

STEP 2

Next, measure your bust:

  • Slide your measuring tape up your back, across your shoulder blades and across the fullest part of your bust.
  • Make sure that the measuring tape is still parallel to the floor and hold the tape as loosely as possible and take note of that measurement. 

STEP 3

Now we do some math!

  • Your band measurement is what you measured + 1 (odd measurements) or 2 (even measurements) 
  • For every inch difference between your band size and your bust size you will increase your cup size.
    • Ex: 34 inch band and a 39 inch bust (5 inch difference)  will be a 34DD 
    • Ex: 31 inch band measurement will round up to a 32 and a 35 inch bust (3 inch difference) will get you to size 32C.
