Ok, ladies, I need your help on how to best display the girls. My ceremony dress is a corseted halter dress and my reception dress is pretty much backless. When I tried on dresses at the stores, they had me put one a corseted bra which helped, but I don’t know if it is necessary when my dress is already corseted.
My mom suggested I find one of those strapless bras that stick to the side so I can use it for both dresses but I am unsure how well they give support. Who wants to see jiggly boobs? Eek! Any bees have a good experience with the best type of bras?

If your dress is corseted I’d consider no bra! Seriously. I have large boobs and my dress was a corseted Maggie Sottero – I went bra-less underneath.

Pardon my asking, but how big are your boobs? Could you just have cups sewn into the dress? I’m a 34B, had a halter dress, and did just that so I didn’t have to find a bra.

@Mrsluckywife: I’ve thought about going braless, but it seemed a little flat to me. Plus, I still need one for my reception dress.
@misspeanut: I think it’s wedding stress or something but these last few months I’m fluctuating between a 34B and 36B depending on which brand I try on. Do they have different cup sizes that they sew in? Do you mind posting a picture of you in your dress?

When I went for my 1st fitting, the seamstress suggested sewing cups into my dress because i could see the top of my bra when I put the dress on. It was the perfect solution….didnt have to wear a bra but I still had some support.

Sew in cups for sure. You already have support from the corset back, so you just need a little rounding from the cups to avoid the squished boob look.
Also wearing a strapless bra under a laced-up corset seems like it would be very uncomfortable.

Yeah, I’ll probably do the sew in cup thing. I was just confused bc she asked me if I bought a bra yet and I went ummmmm….
What kind of bra would you recommend for a completely backless dress? Cups again?
