tobeornottobe7 :  I’m an F and I was so hesitant to go bra-less as the girls need some support(ok, a lot of support).

My dress closure was a corset. For most women, they don’t need a bra with a corset, but I needed a bit more lift so I had an internal corset bra sewn into the dress as well. So basically I had two corsets and the girls were in place for about 12 hours.

ETA: I totally didn’t realize that the intention was for low/no back… whoops. In that case, you need an amazingly structured dress and an amazing seamstress to find a way to give you lift and support. Will your dress have straps? That could help!

I’m a similar cup size and found a fairly low-backed merrywidow that the seamstress actually tacked into the dress so it couldn’t move. On its own, it creeped up over the top of the dress. However, because it was sewn into place, we didn’t have that issue (thank goodness).  I was advised by the bridal store and the seamstress that going bra-less or having cups sewn in isn’t a great idea over a certain cup size — and I was definitely over that cup size. I needed the support, so I felt like we found a nice compromise.

F/G cup here…my dress had a very low back and I ordered several different low-back bustiers to try, but none were low enough to not show through.  My seamstress kept telling my I didn’t need a bra but I was very skeptical (I always need a well-structured bra or my girls would practically be down to my bellybutton).  In the end I went braless and it was just fine (albeit, when I look at the pictures from the day I chose the dress and was wearing a bustier, the dress did look a bit better on me than the actual wedding day when I was braless, but it still looked very good without).

I was concerned that because of the low back, I didn’t have the advantage of the full corset support like some dresses.  But the front of the dress had a good amount of structure and boning, and the seamstress made the straps short enough and the top tight enough to hold everything where it belonged.  I danced the night away and had no issues!  Oh, I did bring athletic tape to the reception as a backup incase the girls fell, but I didn’t end up needing it.  Good thing because I never got around to practicing how to use it like I had planned!

tobeornottobe7 : 32H cup here. I wore a mostly backless dress with sewn in push up cups. The push up cups vs regular cups made a world of difference. 

I was VERY skeptical about not wearing a bra, but it worked out fine. I had to use a little bit of adhesive tape on the sides (side boob area to be non technical).

It actually minimized the look of the size of my chest, which is exactly what I wanted.
