Ok girls, we’re getting up close and personal here. I have no idea what to wear under my dress (other than underwear, of course). As a 34D/DD, I’m VEHEMENTLY opposed to strapless bras of any sort. I’ve tried them all, and not a single one has worked. Is there a rule that says that you have to wear an undergarment of some sort? My dress is a one-shouldered Maggie Sottero with a corset, so that should give me enough support, right? If I show up to my first dress fitting in a few months with my shoes, underwear, and a smile, will the seamstress look at me like I’m nuts?

@tntrav44: I’m having cups built in to mine (so no bra). My consultant actually said that strapless bras are usually why strapless dresses slip down. But if you just have cups put into your dress it’ll stay up much better.
I’m a 36C and it’ll be just Spanx for me.

Mine didn’t! I’m not wearing a bra under my dress, however I’m getting cups sewn in but only because my seamstress suggested it. She said that under bright, bright light (like the flash from a camera) your dress could potentially become see through and your nipples could show… lol.

@tntrav44: Please wear a trench coat to your fitting. 😉
I wore a nubra under my dress, but it wasn’t strapless/tight enough, and I’ve got the opposite size breasts as you, so I’m not a reliable sample.
I would tell your seamstress ahead of time that you’re planning to go braless, not because she’ll freak out when you drop the trench coat, but because she may want to take additional measurements or have cups on hand to put into the dress while you’re there.

@Almy_al: OMG! Thanks for the heads up! lol
@KatNYC2011: Cups sound like the way to go. I KNEW I wasn’t the only that didn’t buy into strapless bras.
