Any of the wedding dress I have tried on, I’ve gone without a bra. The dresses I’ve really like fit tight enough (corset style) that I don’t have to worry about the dress slipping down and needing to pull it up constantly. When I graduated high school in 2005, my grad dress wasn’t altered right to fit my body so I kept having to yank up on it so it would stay up. I wore a strapless bra that day but those things never seem to work for my heavy boobs. I was actually really surprised at how comfortable I was in the wedding dresses I’ve tried on, without a bra!

I am not very well endowed… so I don’t really need to wear a strapless bra with something that’s tight. I will have cups sewn in so I don’t look flat, but no bra!

@ChantelleyLace: One of my requirements when dress shopping was that I had to be able to go braless! However, I have really small boobies (30A), so it wasn’t too hard to find a dress with that requirement. I’m having the seamstress sew some padding and cups into the dress.

I had a backless strapless bra sewn into my dress.

The dress shop I went to has bras sewn into all their gowns, which is kind of odd to me. I haven’t gotten it back yet, so hopefully it works for me! I’m thinking about putting on some sort of something so I know that I won’t be flashing my friends and family, lol.

Ok! Good! I definitely wanted to avoid the strapless bra thing because (a) I hate them and (b) I was hoping the dress would be tight/comfortable enough to forgo the bra all together. Yay! Good to know I’m not the only one saying screw bras on my wedding day!

I also had cups sewn into my dress, however, that was more for the push-up effect and to give me more shape than for support. I’m a 32C so they’re not too big. It is very comfortable though, and looks great.
Also, a friend had the same cups sewn in and she’s a 34D and said that they worked great all night for her. The dress was tight enough to make her feel “secure” and did make her feel supported.

My dress had a bra sewn in and I actually had the alterations lady take it out even though she violently rejected the idea. I also did not wear a bra. I’m a full C on a tiny frame so I actually always do this to any dress that comes with any kind of bra or padding in it so I don’t look like Pamela Anderson. And I never wear a bra wiht any dress because it actually makes my boobs look a lot bigger.

I’m like OttawaBride2011 so I don’t really need a bra, but my dress already came with a little extra padding there. Plus my dress has a low back so a bra is not possible with it anyway.
If you really think you need one and don’t want to get one sewn in, you could always go with a Nu Bra. Have you ever tried one? I used to have one in college and it actually works rather well, plus you can wear it with any type of shirt/dress.

My dress came with slightly padded cups sewn into it, so I’m also going braless. I’m not really big on top (32B), but just big enough to need a tad of support. That and the whole nipple thing.
My dress is also backless, so if it hadn’t already had padding in it, I would have gotten cups put in.

I went braless too, my dress has a corsett back, so I feel safe and supported the whole time.
