Ouch! Women Are Claiming That *Those* Stick-On Bras Are Giving Them Nasty Injuries On Their Breasts
One woman shared a video on Instagram of her alleged bra wounds.
You know those ads all over Facebook and Instagram for stick-on, drawstring bras that supposedly give the wearer jaw-dropping cleavage? Well, some of the women who’ve tried this boob-boosting bra are claiming that it’s causing them extreme pain, and in some cases requires medical attention.
I just wanted to take my stick on bra off but it decided it wanted to take something with it…. my skin. So painful. ??

However, the worst of these complaints has come from an American woman named Emily, who claims the bra she purchased via Instagram left her breasts covered in blisters from trying to peel the adhesive off after use.
She began her message on social media by saying, “***LADIES PLEASE READ***”, before continuing, “I bought the “Instagram bra” at the @instacurve_ kiosk at Cherry Hill Mall in Jersey and when I tried to take it off it ripped my skin and caused a row of blisters on both my breasts.
“I called their support center and they had they audacity to say ‘I should probably be more careful the next time I take the bra off’. It took me 45 minutes to get this f*cking bra off and not only that, I’ve used sticky bras in the past (not from this company) and I’ve never had any issues. I asked for a refund and they said there was absolutely nothing they could do. Perfect.”
***LADIES PLEASE READ*** I bought the "instagram bra" at the @instacurve_ kiosk at Cherry Hill Mall in Jersey and when I tried to take it off it ripped my skin and caused a row of blisters on both my breasts. I called their support center and they had they audacity to say "I should probably be more careful the next time I take the bra off" it took me 45 minutes to get this fucking bra off and not only that I've used sticky bras in the past (not from this company) and I've never had any issues. I asked for a refund and they said there was absolutely nothing they could do. Perfect. So this post is a warning to anyone thinking about buying something from @instacurve_ because they have shitty customer service (as you can see from the handful of girls commenting on their page trying to get in touch) AND their products obviously aren't worth shit. If your so called company doesn't want to take responsibility for what happened and be so quick to say it was the customers fault- you don't deserve any customers at all because this is so not okay. Please spread the word about this company!!!! @instacurve_ @instacurve_ @instacurve_ ****edit: if anyone has had this happen to them from this company PLEASE get in touch with me- I have an attorney handling this already.
In the comments section, other women are sharing their experiences of the bra, with some saying they needed to seek medical attention after wearing it.
One woman wrote, “Omg !!! I had this but I noticed itching right away and saw my dermatologist and never even considered it was due to the bra bc I didn’t wear it for very long.”
Another person said, “This is so true. When I took mine off it took me 10 minutes of agonizing pain. It ripped my skin and there were skin bits left on the bra!”
Insta Curve isn’t the only brand to sell this stick-on bra, as many online retailers have been advertising them across social media. The bra works by using a sticky, glue-type substance to attach to the skin, while a drawstring mechanism pushes your cleavage upwards. The problem seems to lie with the adhesive itself, in that it’s too sticky to be taken away comfortably from the breasts after use.
Some comments on Emily’s Instagram post suggest that her reaction to the bra may have come about if she has sensitive skin, with one person saying, “Looks like your skin might be too sensitive… It kinda looks like when you get a hickey or when you scratch your self too hard (speaking from experience)”.
Have you tried a bra like this? If so, was your experience a positive one?
Have your say
