i swear by victoria’s secret seamless corset! (can’t post a link because i’m at work, sorry) I am definitely not as well-endowed as your are, but it provides amazing support and lift without ever falling down. it comes in nude which is the best color under a white dress!

i’ll be using david’s bridal long line bra. it’s very similar to (if not the same as) felina’s long-line bra. it’s a 36D so if you’re interested, i’ll be selling it after my wedding this saturday. it provides great support and has a slight slimming effect. 🙂

I just bought the Le Mystere Strapless Bridal Bustier 2355 from a local store in the DC area.  I couldn’t be happier with it.  I know you can google it to find it in your area.  As a 36 E or F (depending on the bra), I was in search of a strapless bra that would offer a huge amount of support.  Its pricey but definitely worth it.  In my vast search (I must have tried about 40 different strapless bras) I found that I needed a full bra that was more of a boustier style because it doesn’t move and is as comfortable as this kind of thing can be.  If you can go to a nice bra store in your area to get fitted – I would highly reccomend it – a good bra can totally change your life (not joking at all).  The nice stores know what they are doing and will work with you to find something that really fits, doesn’t create spill-over or back cleavage or whatever.  In my experience, Victoria’s Secret really does not have a lot of options above a C cup.

The key to a strapless bra is buying one size smaller and one cup size larger.  So I’m a 36C, but my strapless bras are 34D.  This keeps it snug and your ladies in place.  I’m a fan of Lilyette personally.

I second Le Mystere – strapless and regular. Best bras I’ve ever worn.

As a 32G/H I swear by either Felina or Le Mystere. They know how to make bras for bigger chested women (And no,once you get past C, it’s not just about making the cup bigger). I would go for a corset type thing though – because of a bigger band, they tend to hold you in better.

And, I totally second MissKangaroo on the VS comment. If you’re anything above a C – don’t bother with it. In fact, I hate VS. I walked into that store asking for my size – the woman there gave me a look over, said that I was wrong, I couldn’t possibly be that size, whipped out her tapemeasure and measured me with – get this – MY WINTER SKI JACKET STILL ON ME! Then she handed me a $50 bra (a 36D if I remember correctly which as far as cup sized go, is the biggest they carry) and told me to go try it on. Needless to say, the band was HUGE! Anyway, sorry for the rant but I needed to get that out of my system.

heh RinaRoo, I had the same thing (sort of) happen! I was looking for bras and they asked my size and I told them, then they said "that’s not your size!" I’m pretty sure they measured me and lo and behold, that’s the size I was! They just kind of muttered something after that. I mean, yeah I could have maybe been off a little (like maybe I was 34 instead of 36 or something), but she her guess was way off!
