Big Busted Brides – Bra question under dress??

You are probably going to have to have cups put in or a custom low back corset made.  My dress has a low back and they took a corset and tailored it to be lower in the back while still supporting me in front. I would see a seamstress about this first prior to purchasing anything.  A good bridal shop should have something/be able to make a suggestion for you.

Missjan2015:  alter the dress and pay for a built in bra, it will be well worth it

My dress too had an illusion neckline. The back wasn’t as low as what you are describing. I went with a Soma Intimates bra, and i loved it. I didn’t have to worry about things moving about and poking through,not too much cleavage. Just a great bra.

I am a 36DD and i had cups sewn in.  The long line bra i bought was SO uncomfortable my seamstress talked me into the cups.  My back was corset though, and i had no issues with any sort of slippage all night lol.

I’m having the same issue (12F). Hoping that the alterations will be able to add in a bra, otherwise I may look at taping the girls up for the day.

Get cups sewn in. I’m a 32DD and I was really happy with the cups. They gave good support without adding bulk.
