Stick-on, push-up bras are everywhere these days (thanks, Amber Rose!), promising fuller cleavage with adhesives and a drawstring. But oneÂ woman on social mediaÂ is complaining that the bra ripped off herÂ skin, leaving her breastsÂ bloodied and blistered.
Jami Jessop from Maryland recently shared her experience withÂ Tidetell Invisible Womenâ€™s Strapless Self-Adhesive Demi Bra with Drawstrings, writing on Facebook, â€œI have never in my life in been in this much pain. The bra you see is what did this. I never want anyone to experience what I have, never ever will I buy this kind again. It says â€˜donâ€™t recommend for heat because it will make the bra slip.â€™ Well I wore it and it DID NOT slip. It was glued to my breast.â€
Jessopâ€™s post received more than 67,000 shares, 20,000 reactions, and 36,000 comments from people outraged by the womanâ€™s experience and floods of sympathetic comments for her pain.
Yahoo Beauty could not reach Jessop for comment or a representative from Tidetell, but the companyâ€™s address is in the Jiangsu Province of China, and therefore itâ€™s not registered with the Better Business Bureau. Over on Amazon, where the bra got 3.5 stars out of 5, the product description warns customers to avoid wearing the item in heat â€œbecause sweat may make it slip down.â€ And some reviewersÂ called the item â€œawfulâ€ and â€œdisappointing,â€ with one remarking that the bra fell off after only 30 minutes ofÂ use.
Over on Twitter, plentyÂ complained about the overall effectiveness of stick-on bras from a variety of companies.

Those stick on braâ€™s are either a near nipless experience or they just slide off, there is no in-between

I WAS WRONG! The stick on bra didnâ€™t survive an HOUR. As soon as I walked the dogs in this â˜€ï¸ it pretty much came off in the park.
