Im starting the search for my wedding underwear early as i know it can take a few tries to get the right thing, only problem is i cant find what im looking for!
My dress is a very heavily beaded strapless sweatheart neckline low back dress. Ideally i would like to only minimally alter it, so that i can sell it on for a bit more afterwards.
My boobs are a good 2 sizes smaller than my hips, so i decided to get a padded/filled bra with some oomph to give me a little bit of cleavage or alteast look like theres something there! So ideally im looking for a basque of something with a super low back… except i cant find one.
Im not keen on doing invisible bra straps etc as i think they can be quite visible.
Heres a photo of the back for reference (sorry its so big!)

@Rachael1287: I am having the same issue. I don’t want to just sew cups in because my dress doesn’t really *push up* it just secures them in. I checked out MAcy’s in NYC and every department store in Union Square in San Francisco and came up with NOTHING! So I’ve ordered 4 from bare necessities online. I’ll let you know if any of them work out once they arrive.

Will also be interested to see the suggestions. Sorry I couldn’t help you out!

@clairebbbear: That does look low enough! Thanks! Looking at the pictures it looks like the models boobs arent very flattered by it though? Not sure if thats just because shes not huge chested though so itd look like that on me too? lol.
@AllieBee12: Yes i found that website earlier! The one you posted looks most promising i think, and theres this one also:

I have to say I am so glad my dress is boned/built in such a way I don’t need to wear a separate bra with it! Good luck 🙂

@Rachael1287: Yeah I liked that one, unfortunately they don’t have it in a 32Dirty Delete (that’s my other problem!!). I ordered the:
VaBien6363 conbertable plunge backless underwire bustier
VaBien513 Longline convertable bustier
Felina7643 Essentials seamless hidden wire bustier, and
Dominique8541 Longling smooth strapless Bra
Then I’ll try them all on and send back 3! Ugh, stupid boobs.

My dress is also very low in the back. I ordered a Dominique longline backless bra (straps in back look pretty low in pics) in a 32 C because I’m a 32D, but reviews said to order in a cup smaller. It should arrive within the next week. I will let you know what I think.

I have a low back dress too! I got a nu-bra for cleavage and the cups sewn in for volume, worked pretty well 😀 I don’t have any pictures of it though 🙁

Ill be trying on my dominique long line bra with my dress for the first time on fiday! The bra fits awesome but definitely go down a cup size.

The Dominqiue 6377 I ordered was ill-fitting. It had a horrible gap in the bust area. I guess its back to bra hunting for me, I plan on taking some of the other bee’s suggestions.

@Rachael1287: Thought I’d give an update now that I have the bras…
I’m normally a 32Dirty Delete so I ordered that size in all except the VaBien6363 convertable plunge backless underwire bustier which I ordered in a 34D. This one fits the best and has the lowest back with spots to put some push-up pads in the cups.
VaBien513 Longline convertable bustier – this one I ordered in a 32Dirty Delete and although I can get it on, it is TIGHT! It also doesn’t have spot for any push-up, but has better coverage.
Felina7643 Essentials seamless hidden wire bustier – This one has light “foam” padding all down the front which adds a bit of thickness. It also rolled down right under the bust. No good. It does however have padding and you wouldn’t see any boning.
Dominique8541 Longling smooth strapless Bra – this was was good but was way too tight. It is a bit shorter, which is fine for me because I have a ball gown, but if you have a fitted dress it might give you a muffin top.
Hope it helps ladies!!
