I am a 38Dirty Delete and I have not begun my search yet. Just wondering what styles other large busted brides wear. I am a street size of 12 but becuase of my bust my dress would prob be a 16-18 (thats what I have worn in bridesmaid dresses). Please post pics and tell your bra size/street size. Thanks!

I am a 34Dirty Delete.. or so Victoria’s Secret has told me. I had to wear a dress with a high neckline and sleeves so I didn’t have neckline options. However, the dress was looking TERRIBLE on my bust until I got an amazing bra from Intimacy! I honestly want to say that my dress was a 14 waist but my hips bumped it up to an 18? (In clothes, I will wear a 12 if it’s sitting on my hips, but an 8 on my waist – I’m very hourglass-y with some curves! Lol) However, as far as dress sizing, mine was custom ordered because I made so many changes to it so they really just fit it to my measurements so I didn’t have to pay attention to the size. I’ll post a few pictues although my neckline is probably not what you’re looking for. I don’t know if Intimacy carries bridal bra options to accomodate strapless or other types necklines, etc. but I would recommend them fully!!!!
ETA: When I say the dress was looking TERRIBLE before I got my Intimacy bra, I mean, oh gosh..let me whisper it: (sag)

I’m a 34GG I had to order a size up and if it doesn’t cover the chest, we are going to add a little tulle to the top. Very few dresses covered my chest. There was a great chiffon one, but it was wrong for our autumn candlelit church wedding.
this is my dress
here is the chiffon style I loved
Both are Maggie Sottero. Of all the dresses, I found hers to be the most chest friendly with good support and decent coverage.

@StaceyLeighS: I went into the store. I’m usually an online shopping purist but for a bra I don’t ever go that route. They have an unusual way of doing things there, they don’t believe in tape measures. The bra I got has lace on it, which in hindsight isn’t the best for every day wear, but at the time I was thinking *wedding, wedding, wedding*
I’ve never had a better bra in my entire life. And don’t be put off by sizing if you go there. Their bra sizes don’t conform to the standard so you won’t be getting your regular Dirty Delete, most likely.

UK 34GG, Little worried about spilling out, but I am not dress shopping for another couple of months, so haven’t thought about designers, but I have not liked a strapless bra since I was a D, so that’ll be fun! (not)

I don’t have my dress yet but I’m going to look for one with tank straps so I won’t have issues wearing a bra. I’m a 34H. I’m also probably having mine made for me and will have loops added to feed the straps through so they won’t slip (I may even do this myself after getting the dress).
I buy my bras at Change.

I”m 32Dirty Delete and I got a dress with a sweetheart neckline. I was a bit worried it might be too much, but as long as I’m not bending over I should be good! It’s a little “booby” but I’m not getting married in a church, so, again, not so worried. Also, because the corset is done up really well, I don’t need to worry about a bra underneath, but bought a strapless one anyways JUST in case. I’m hoping the corset will keep up the boobs and bra.

34Dirty Delete here. My dress is strapless, but has boning all the way up the bodice & through the cups for support. LOVE.

Me! I’m a 32 DD/F and a street size 10. I’d post a pic of me in my dress but I’m superstitious and I don’t want to show any pics until after the wedding. When I was dress shopping, I found that anything with a sweetheart, v neck or scoop was most flattering on me and I stayed away from strapless dresses because I always find myself readjusting when I wear strapless. Although, many salons stated that the fit wouldn’t be a problem because the dress can be altered so that that is not an issue. But it’s whatever feels best to you!
The bride in this blog post wore my dress (if you’re curious):

thanks everyone for the input! I am a little worried about strapless…I worry about having to keep picking it up ..or having spillage!! It sucks because it seems as if all the ones I like are strapless!!!

@helenberrycrunch: Your dress is really pretty!

I was a 38F (which, as you may know, is equivalent to a triple D) at the time of my wedding:
ETA: I should note that I could not wear a long-line corset style foundation under my dress, because the effect of that push me up to high, and give me too much cleavage, which I definitely did not want. I had to wear a regular strapless style instead. In hindsight, I sometimes think I should have purchased a different dress, but, once I ordered this one, and it arrived many months later, there was no time for me to order another one.

@Brielle – beautiful dress! Did you find yourself picking it up at all or did it stay on pretty good when you were dancing etc
