I dont really want a big uncomfortable strapless bra hanging out or falling down all night, I have only had bad experiences with these if you couldnt tell, but Im not really sure what is appropriate to wear with my wedding dress?

I’m wearing a strapless bustier. It’ll hold up the ladies as well as pull in my tummy and it’s got garter straps for my stockings.

My seamstress sewed cups into my dress. It’ll probably depend on the style of your dress and your umm breast size what option will work best for you. Mine is a corset back and is very tight in the bust so I’m considering wearing a strapless as well for an extra boost. But breastfeeding killed my once perky nice boobs, lol.

My Maggie Sottero dress has a built-in corset that fits like a glove. I am having pads sewn into the bra area. I wear a 36C so I’m right in the middle size-wise. If the dress didn’t have a built-in corset, I would probably wear one underneath– I love the hourglass shape it gives me. What type of dress are you wearing?

I went braless. In hindsight, I wish I would have had something.

I’m voted strapless bra but I’m actually wearing one with clear straps because I have a bolero jacket that I won’t be taking off. I wanted the support but I didn’t want white straps showing through the jacket. No one will be able to tell there are clear straps!

It depends on the size of your girls and the type of dress that you have. I’m a fan of adhesive since I’m mostly trying to hide my nipples and boost what I’ve got, but my larger chested friends laughed at the idea. Strapless bras can create more lines and bulges, and I too have had ones that I’m constantly tugging on under my clothes. For a really hefty bosom, I’m told they work best. Although my friend that told me that (DD?) set her girls free at some point during her reception a few months back.
VS has two types of adhesives. The gel filled ones pull your boobies together and give cleavage to even A cups (yay!), but they are heavy and will fall off if you are not wearing a dress that is tight enough to hold them on. I wore them once under a charmeuse halter, and I was so terrified that I’d leave a boob laying on the floor that I ended up going without at the end of the night. I wore these under my tight/boned/strapless rehearsal dress, and by cleavage looked great all night, and I had no worries about them.
The ones that have softer cups but stick to your back stay on perfectly w/ my size (A) all night with some sweating. A fresh one (fresh sticky) is good. That’s what I wore under my blousey topped wedding dress, although petals or nothing would have been fine.
Built in cups can move independently of your body depending on the fit of your dress…like you lean to the left and the boobs go right…but for some dresses it works.

my dress is strapless, sweetheart neckline with a corset back. therse a little bit of padding (kind of like a cup but not really) already in the dress (but not much). and i am tiny but not on top lol my dress is a size 2 and i am a 32d so i just dont know what the best thing would be! Im thinking adhesives (maybe the kind with the clear back) because i dont want the bulkiness of a strapless bra but i dont know???

My dress has a really supportive/structured bustline–it kind of already has cups in it. I’m only a B cup, so I don’t anticipate having to add anything/wear anything underneath.

@napabridekelsey, I’m looking for something like that. Do you mind sharing the name or link to the one you got? Have you tried it on–is it comfortable?

Luckily my dress lets me wear a normal bra, which is one of the reasons I like it. I hate strapless bras.
Perhaps wear a bustier? I’ve never worn one but I would imagine they wouldn’t slip as easily.

I’m wearing a corset under my dress and ugly “suck me in” undies. They really get the job done and make everything look nice and smooth and curvaceous.
