My dress was the Allure 8800, and I wore a pair of stick on breast petals on my wedding day.  Therefore, no bra or sewn in cups were necessary.  I highly recommend them ($15 and you can wear them multiple times).

Beautiful dress! I wore a v-back dress but not as low as yours, so I’m not sure if this will work for you, but I wore a low-back strapless bustier. My seamstress said that was my only option for my dress; she said I couldn’t do sewn-in cups, maybe because my dress didn’t have a lot of internal structure. And I’m too busty to be comfortable with stick-ons.

I mean something that looks like this – don’t know if that would be low enough for your dress.

Do you actually “need” a bra?  I am 48 years old and my boobies are still perky enough to not wear a bra with my wedding dress. (I am not bragging, just that maybe you may not really need one)

Yeah, I guess with that neckline you will need a little “help” hee hee! A little cleavage will enhance the look, I agree!

My dress silhouette was similar to yours, and I think you might be able to go bra-less, I did. I used double-sided tape, just in case, and there were cups already sewn in, so no “nipple issues”.

You could just get cups sewn in.  It should be between $20-$50 to do so and then you won’t have to worry!

Try one of the stick-on bras- you should be able to get one pretty cheap. I bought one, completely not thinking it would work, but wanting some kind of cover to go with sewn in cups. I’m about a B, and need some lift-help, but because you stick them on and clasp them together, the cleavage is actually really good! That’s what I’m going to be doing, for me it’s much better than the sewn-in cups, I’m going to be taking them out.

I really think it’s worth a try, I was very impressed.
