My bra size is about 30-32A and there’s about a 90% chance I’m wearing David’s Bridal’s VW351000 (http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_One-Shoulder-Gown-with-Asymmetrically-Draped-Skirt-VW351000_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Designer-White-by-Vera-Wang).
Anyway, so my initial instinct is that I don’t PARTICULARLY need a bra and that it will probably be more trouble than it’s worth, so I’m just not going to wear one. Am I inviting disaster upon myself, haha? I haven’t really thought the whole thing through in explicit detail so I might be missing some potential problems with bralessness. Has anyone else done this? Planning to do it?

As long as the dress is snug and is tailored to your body everything should be fine. If it doesn’t and you’ve got a strapless dress, that’s when things can get a little messy…
Personally, I am not wearing a bra and will be getting cups sewn into my dress (strapless sweetheart neckline and also a 32 A cup). God gifted me with small boobs and i’m going to take advantage of the fact that gravity does not weigh me down!!! Yahoo!!!!!

Agree with PP- cups are definitely the answer to us less than well-endowed ladies. Rounds out what you’ve got, gives it a bit extra oomph, and you don’t have to worry about finding a strapless bra that doesn’t show and you don’t have to worry about falling down. Gorgeous dress, by the way.

I actually regretted wearing a bra a little because I have pictures where you can see it poking out above the dress. But it was helpful only because I don’t feel totally comfortable changing in front of my friends and family, and I needed help getting into my dress. So it was nice to have something to wear at that point so I wasn’t flashing everyone in the process.

I have two dresses, one fitted and one slinky. I am a size 34B and will not be wear a bra for either. The ceremony dress has a built in corset thing that keeps me in place. The reception dress cups are currently too big, but whent they are altered, I will have dups in it so I don’t have to wear a bra. I think I will also wear those sticky tape things tat keep your breasts lifted for extra support.

Thanks for the advice! So it sounds like cups sewn in are a pretty good idea. Anyone have an idea of what the budget there is?

In addition to sewn in cups, I also used double-sided tape to keep my dress in place- no worries when I bent over!

I’m going braless too but going to have cups sewn in because I hate strapless bras and I think boobage looks better with a strapless dress lol

not exactly small over here.. but I’m a 34C and not going to be wearing a bra with mine. the dress already kind of has cup thingies in it (not full on sewn in cups) or maybe it’s just how they sewed it.. not sure but yea at my last fitting I put my dress on with out a bra and it was perfectly fine! I will say I do have a corset back dress so that may help.

@emmaliiiiine: Cost should be minimal; with my first wedding, the seamstress just used shoulder pads and tacked them in with two stitched. Maybe $25 all in?

I put some surgical tape on my nips and called it a day. I wore a backless silk sheath dress and am small up top. I thought it looked fine!

I’m 34B and just had cups sewn into my dress so I didn’t have to wear one, it was perfect!

I have B-cups and I didn’t wear a bra. I made sure my dress was tailored to a T around the bust and I had no problems and felt totally comfortable!
