I need to get a great bra before my first fitting next month. Any recommendations for a strapless bra, preferably long-line but that’s not a requirement I’m a 36DDD so I would prefer no padding – its not necessary. My dress is a drop waist ball gown that laces up the back (Pronovias Benicarlo).

Have you tried the one from David’s Bridal? My friend liked it the best. I am a 36 DD and got mine from Dillards. It is padded, but just enough to hold a shape in my strapless gown. It also has a shortened back so that the back fat is under the dress instead of over ^_^ Good luck in your search!

@bj415: This may not be what you want to hear and for the record my friends ALL recommended the new strapless wonderbra (without padding) that has the hands at the sides (can’t remember it’s name sorry)……..I was in a complete state about mine, ordered a corset, wanted a longline, couldn’t get one low enough in the front and back…..went to the seamstress and she told me not to wear one. HELLO??!!!Im a 36 G and have never not worn a bra since I was 11. Absolutely bricking it but no solution here yet. The dress does flow better without, and no ouchy wires! Best of luck, it’s not easy!

I went to a store called Intimacy yesterday, and after trying on a few of their bras and being measured by the lady there, I honestly don’t know why I’ve ever gone anywhere else. The bras are SO COMFORTABLE, and they fit and support me better than any other bra I have EVER tried on. They had several good strapless options. I’m busty, too… I used to wear DD cups, though the store yesterday informed me that I’m actually an F. Either way, the shop is fantastic. I will never buy bras from another store ever again.

Thanks for all the comments. I’ve been browising herroom.com and barenecessities.com. Think I’ll order a few and go with the ol’ trial and error. I’ll repost once they all come in with my recommendations.
I wore a padded Wacoal strapless to try on dresses. Its actually the best strapless bra I’ve come across but it has padding that I don’t think I’ll need and I would like the longline/bustier for added shape; hoping to get out of my spanx since its a ballgown and really don’t need them
