I bought mine at Sears for less than $20.  I did have to get a bra extender, but it fit okay and my ladies didn’t budge all day.

My cups are sewn in, but I would think any nice department store would have a good selection and better prices than David’s Bridal.

DB definitely overcharges. I’ve seen them for MUCH less at simple department stores like Macy’s.

 

But… make sure that you actually NEED one before you spend the money.  When I attempted shopping at DB, they told me that no matter WHAT I would need a longline bra or other similar undergarments. They will try to upsell you everything – bra, slip, shoes, veil, clutch, even photography?!!? The name of the game at DB is upsell.

Then when I went to an actual boutique, the woman laughed at the idea of needing a longline bra. And sure enough, when I tried on her dresses (both Maggie Sottero and Allure), I didn’t need a bra at ALL.. and I’m a 36DDD, so that’s pretty impressive! Haha.

@Lily_of_the_valley:  I just bought one today at sears for $20 and I’m a 38c. They had some on clearance for $13 but didn’t have my size. But I shopped ALL over the mall and that was the only place I found one at all.

@Lily_of_the_valley:  A longline bra will be even hotter than a dress with built-in support… trying on dresses with a longline bra and slip in DB I was sweating (air-conditioned store in early spring)… but for my outdoor wedding in late August (it was 86 degrees), I was perfectly comfortable all day and night! 🙂

It entirely depends on your bra size and how your breasts look in the dress without a bra. I’m a 40G and my breasts are heavy. A regular strapless bra that fit right without slowly working it’s way down my body or digging in uncomfortably didn’t exist for me. My longline bra, on the other hand, is actually comfortable, adds a bit of shape to my waist, and keeps my breasts in place without falling down or digging in. I paid $45 for mine but that was on clearance. The regular price is $75 and it’s worth every penny.

I am getting the longline bra from Alfred Angelo the price is about the same as the one from Davids I have a 44 DDD chest and felt I needed something more than the boning in my dress to keep me in place. Another plus to the bra is it will hold in some of my back flab to prevent the fat roll over the top of the gown.

I bought a longline goddess bra and also a elomi longline bra. Both are very comfortable and fairly cheap. (approx $95 for both Aust dollar) I bought mine from amazon after doing a little research on other sites.
