I need recommendations for silicone breast form adhesive. I have no experience with it, and my pocket bra has annoying lines that show through light fabrics and no padding so the nipple shows through ANY fabric.

I use Hollister but as others have mentioned, it’s a spray so application can be a little messy. The hold is great but I can understand how the larger breast forms can pull on the skin. Clean up is a little bit of a chore also using the remover. It has a very chemical smell and takes a little work to get it off the forms.

I just purchased, and received, two new sets of Feminique, breast form, and they recommend Torbets Skin Tak, or Jobst It Stays.
Both are rather expensive, and are water soluble
My wife has used Hollister medical adhesive for years, for a medical attachment, and it does stick well(up to a week, when applied properly), but is a b!!!H to get off, even with the remover. I am afraid it would damage my forms.

If you’re going to use adhesives there’s a few things you should be aware of.
Most important – make sure the adhesive is safe for use on human skin. The same goes for adhesive remover. Generally, medical adhesive and remover will be safe to use. But you should still test a small area to see if you have a reaction.
It seems obvious, but please don’t use the adhesives sold in hardware stores!
Your forms should be designed for use with medical adhesives. Usually the manufacturer will explicitely state this somewhere in the product description. If it’s not apparent, there’s a good chance you’ll ruin your forms.
Shave your chest a few hours before attaching your forms. This gives your skin some time to recover. The night before is better.
I’ve used Hollister medical adhesive many times in the past. It’s fairly cheap and easy to find. It creates a decent bond. Most manufacturers of attachable forms recommend it. However, there’s one big drawback – it’s a spray. It makes a mess and it’s hard to get a thin even coat of adhesive. You waste a lot. I no longer use Hollister.
The last few years I’ve been using Telesis 8 adhesive by PPI. It’s made for special effects makeup artists to attach all sorts of prosthetics to actors bodies. It’s bond is superior to Hollister. It comes in a bottle. I use a small makeup brush to apply it to my forms. I also use Telesis Top Guard on my chest. It’s a skin prep and primer that’s water and perspiration resistant. It increases adhesion and reduces skin irritation when removing forms. Top Guard is similar to but better than Skin Tack wipes.
With Telesis, I can wear my 42D forms (737 grams each) continuously for several days. Sleeping with them and showering are no problem. I haven’t tried swimming but suspect that’s no problem either.
Telesis products are sold at film and theatrical supply stores. They’re fairly expensive, but a little goes a long way.
Hope this helps. Send me a PM if you want more info.

I’m with the other “skin Tac wipe” girls. Works especially well with the Gold seal forms that utilise the double sided tape method of attachment . Use alcohol wipes first for a nice clean chest and they will stay in place for 24hrs plus..
For me and I suggest lots of others, it allows us to go bra less, especially at night like a “real GG”.

I’m fascinated by how often this type subject comes up. you gals want boobies that feel ‘real’. I get that. But in reality, that can never happen. Natural breast tissue is attached under the skin, a part of the body. Any size form stuck on with glues will pull unnaturally on the skin.
That said, the braless look should only be tried with small forms. Just like real women should do. Unsupported larger forms can be damaged, tear your skin, and look like two kids fighting under your blouse.
My Terri experimented with adhesives way back. Using Super 77 spray found at any hardware store and Goo Gone for removal. She found the weight of her large forms pulled at her skin uncomfortably. Almost ruined a form during removal.
Her forms have a fabric cover to help wick away sweat, or use a section of panty hose to do the same. She has found that a full supporting regular bra keeps the girls in place, while still allowing natural looking movement when she walks about.
You want some movement of your breasts to look natural, even small breasts move about. Adhesives seem so restricting and bothersome.
Almost forgot to mention that pocket bras do have extra seams that might show through where regular bras do not. Nothing more sexy than a bit of lace hiding under a shear blouse!
Some women have larger nipples, especially when breast feeding. There are covers available to reduce the high beams.

I have 38b silicone forms that are very soft and pliable. I use “Skin-Tac” brand adhesive. I use the wipes. Wipe your breast area first where the forms will fit. Then wipe the forms. Let them tack up for only a minute then press them in place. I go bra less with them that way. Either a cute cami or t shirt. Works great.

good question. I am curious as to how many of us use adhesive to hold their forms in ? I have been thinking it woudl be a nice upgrade to have them attached for a more realistic feel rather then just having them in the bra. thoughts?

So you are wanting to use a regular bra Philma ?
I’ve used Hollister Medical Adhesive… it holds well… ‘too’ well actually. When removing my forms, the adhesive would slightly tear my skin. Needless to say, I stopped using it.

Yes, wanting to wear a normal bra, and worried about excess sweat, the forms sliding around, or falling out, or whatever. I’ll look for that brand.
I am a bit curious about how they would feel being attached though. I read about it here sometimes and want to give it a try! I wonder if it holds well enough to go swimming?
