I am absolutely in love with my dress, the ever-popular Casablanca 1831 (see photos below). However, I am at a loss with what undergarments to select with those narrow straps and that low-cut back. It seems like it would be too low for a strapless bra or a corset, although I’m not sure because it’s a bit big on me at the moment. Am I wrong? I hope I’m wrong, because I’ve read mixed reviews of those NuBra sticky front-only bra things and I’m not excited about them.
Anyone who’s worn this dress have a tip or two?

The back looks a lot like the back of my dress–Mikaella Bridal 1367, I can’t find a pic of the back to post. I tried it on with a plain ole’ regular strapless and it fit just fine. I’m banking on that being true when mine comes in.

Oooh, that Mikaella dress is very pretty! I found a photo of the back online and you’re right, they are quite similar. The Mikaella back might even be a bit lower, so if a strapless bra worked for you it should definitely work for me. Thanks!

Beautiful dress! Jezebel (sold at Macy’s) has a wide variety of strapless bras that sit low in the back but provide support. I am very tiny around but have a large cupsize and this fit very well for me. It has underwire cups and just helps hold me in place. Some of them also have push-up if that’s what you’d like as well.
A bra-free alternative would be to have cups sewn in for you by a tailor.

@calielph, thanks for posting the link to the back! I was just looking for it again. My strapless had to be pulled down a litte bit in the back, but it was an easy adjustment, and I didn’t feel like it would be a problem all night.
@crystalp92, thanks for the tip on Macy’s! I need to start the hunt for a new one soon, and it sounds like we’re in the same boat.
