    I’m a 32 G and  I loved dresses like that one. I figured I would use one of those bras that is low in the back and a halter at top and has a band that goes around your waist. But I ended up in Watters Escalante, which has  a fun, see-through back but I could get away with wearing a regular nude bra:

    @JenGirl:  Your dress is gorgeous!

    Honestly, I feel like keyhole backs are so popular but work on so few body types. They need to fit perfectly and I don’t think they’re suitable for a lot of brides. I would go for something that still has back detail, but more coverage. 

    I haven’t had much luck with super low-back bras, I always find they tend to ride up or be really uncomfortable. 

    There’s also something like this:

    @MeghanFly:  Me too…I’m wondering if those straps stay in place though.

    @peonyinparis:  I’ve heard that you can’t really lift your arms in that bra, because your boobs will fall out :/ I just bought this, but I haven’t received it yet…

    @peonyinparis:  Yeah… it seems a little flawed in design.

    @FutureMrsJohnson_:  That looks…. uncomfortable. Like you’d get both types of wedgies with that. Let us know how it works and if it is comfortable. 🙂

    @MeghanFly:  Haha I know 🙁 But I have 32 Ds and those little silicone cup things never work for me. My secret reception dress is super tight and backless, so I’m trying to figure something out. They also have a “briefs” version

    @FutureMrsJohnson_:  The silicon things never work for me either. I have 28DDs, and the “D” cups are ginormous and the C,B,A just don’t fit correctly. I mean, who thought of the whole “hey guys, lets put out silicone sticky bras and ONLY go by a letter size. You know, because a 30D is the same size as a 40D and all. A D is a D after all!” Ugh! Morons.

    Not to mention it is HARD to find 28DD bras, usually I shop for 30Ds (a LITTLE easier to find) but trying to fit in to a 32C just doesn’t work. Even with the band on the tightest (or tighter) notch.

    @MsquareM:  I don’t have any experience with keyhole but I wouldn’t rule out going bra-less, even with your boob size.

    There are pnety of brides on here with your bust size who have gone with bra-less. Admittedly they didn’t generally go with low- or open-back dresses, but I think the dress you’ve chosen might still be doable.

    It looks like it’s lined under most of the lace at the back, which means that there could well be boning there, which is what you want. Also if the lace straps are actually strong enough to provide support instead of just being decorative, you’re going get to support from them as well.
