We’ve all gone to some crazy extremes when it comes to perfecting a great get-up, but the superstar took it to a whole new level when she duct taped her chest to fit into her backless jumpsuit! There’s no need to try Ke$ha’s wacky trick — instead, read on and SHOP for backless bras that will strategically let you bare your back without having to sacrifice support.

Known for sporting some of the most interesting ensembles on the red carpet, Ke$ha, 26, pleasantly surprised us when she stepped out in a sexy yet chic backless lace jumpsuit by Lebanese designer Gemy Maalouf in Italy on April 16. She looked perfectly polished when she came down the red carpet, but she took to twitter to reveal how she managed to defy gravity in her backless ensemble — and we were shocked to see she turned to duct tape!

Ke$ha Duct Tapes Boobs?

Crazy cutouts, backless tops, and skin bearing ensembles are all the rage and certainly don’t show signs of going out of style any time soon — but you don’t have to resort to painful tape to make the ensemble work for you! This tricky trend leaves us with the constant struggle of concealing our straps while still covering up and clearly Ke$ha has been faced with the same crossroads. Her solution? Duct tape. The songstress posted a picture on her Instagram account showing off her bare chest with duct tape, saying, “Yes. That’s duct tape. So glamorous.” Hopefully, that’s sarcastic.

Backless Bras:

Ke$ha’s makeshift bra totally gets points for creativity, but with all of the practical options out there there’s no reason to resort to this painful method! Backless bras with adhesive sides can definitely do the trick if you want to bare your back but need a little extra support. We’re big fans of the Victoria’s Secret U-Plunge Backless Push-Up Bra because it’s low enough in front to accomodate sexy, plunging styles and a bare back — it’s a wardrobe lifesaver! The strategic design can allow you to show some skin without having to resort to tape like the songstress did.

If you need more coverage than look no further! Maidenform’s Push Up Combo Wing Bra is a more traditional option that offers more support in the front. If you aren’t worrying about a plunging neckline than this is definitely your best bet. This bra also features adhesive sides to keep you in place while still allowing you to show some skin without having to worry about sloppy straps showing. This adhesive version comes with two sets of liners so you can wear it over and over again — and it also offers a little push-up!

Both looks are offered in nude and black to compliment any style, and you can avoid Ke$ha’s makeshift support option with our picks! What do you think? Have you ever tried taping your chest like the star?
