Hi bees… So I am pretty full chested… 10E … Slim torso with big boobs…. Having bra trouble.
I have brought the watters jacinda dress… Which has a sheer illusion neckline … And sheer back so I need a bra which is low at the back.. Strapless and has really good support… Any ideas ? What are you Fuller chested girls doing in the bra department ?
Do you think I could wear clear bra straps… The sheer illusion would cover them somewhat… What I worry they could still look a little shiny under my dress.
any tips would be great… I want to ensure my boobs are not sagging ha ha… And so there is a clear definition between boob and waist… As the strapless bras I have tried on so far were it very supportive… Hence thinking clear bra straps for support.

I’m 30H, and the only strapless I have ever tried that has held me up decently is this one: http://www.herroom.com/freya-aa1462-deco-shape-underwire-contour-longline-bra.shtml, but it doesn’t go particularly low in the back. How low is the dress? Can you post a picture?
I would stay away from clear straps. I’m sure they’ll be shiny in the pictures!

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.

I’m a 36J and had my dress custom made to avoid this problem, but I recently bought this bra:http://www.laurensilva.com/Elomi_Seamless_Longline_Bra_p/elom-1231.htm?gclid=CJudssL2rMECFQGqaQodbz4AcA to wear under a bridesmaids dress with clear straps. For me, the weight of the girls is the biggest issue, I’ve never been comfortable in a strapless bra.

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.
