32 GG/H here. No bra…

Keep in mind wedding dresses are built differently. They’re made with higher quality materials and in many cases, undergarments spoil the silhouette. I tried dozens of dresses, with corsets, strapped bras, and even a Basque; nothing looked better than the strapless gown with the built in bra. 

I was CONVINCED I’d never do strapless. I was wrong. 

The dress itself it built entirely to shape and support you. It distributes the weight over a greater area of fabric. It’ll be the best “bra” you ever wear. 

Just keep an open mind and try one on. You might be surprised; I totally was.

28H no bra in either!



I think the no bra helps minimise actually as I’m wearing a bra in this one…

Ya’ll are giving me hope seeing as this is my biggest fear and I’m going dress shopping in three (!!!) weeks! Oh the struggles of a disproportionate body.

I am a 40 J in the US.  I wore a strapless corest underneath my dress (the back of my gown was sheer with beading, so I could have straps).  I felt really supported.

I am 34 D D  in US. My chest was difficult to imagine in a dress, especially since I loved the illusion back. I asked the alterationist to put in cups, but they ended up useless. Boobs were not supported and just looked saggy.

Then, I was referred to a seamstress who was dubbed the “Boob Fairy”. Sign me up! She sewed in even better cups that worked perfectly! Even though I had done extensive research on bras, I didn’t have to worry about it. Here’s a picture:

Beth7210 : not sure which dress you selected (if even one of these), but I think the second dress looks amazing on you!

I have not selected a dress yet, but had the same fear OP. I have a larger chest and never feel comfortable with strapless tops or dresses and could never find a great strapless bra (always feel saggy and like I need to pull up), so I assumed I would tend toward a dress with straps so I could wear a more traditional bra. I have only tried on a few dresses yet, but I found that strapless, corset back (which I was not a fan of until I tried it on) seemed very supportive without any top undergarments.

ash101 :  I have large Double D’s bordering on an E. My boobs are super saggy… I swear I can fold them into a bra! 😕

Since sprouted boobs, I’ve pretty much had to wear a bra everyday whilst going out in public. Dress shopping had me worried because so many dresses seem strapless and backless and I was certain I needed a bra for support. Wedding dresses are not made the same as regular fancy everyday dresses. So many of them have amazing in built boning and corsetry.  I tried on heaps of strapless dresses with no bra and felt very secure. My dress had cap sleeves but was so structure underneath that I went braless with no negative effect.

A bridal salon consultant gave me a great dress shopping tip when I told her about my needing to wear a bra for support. She told me to look for dresses that stand up alone without a coat hanger. She said if they do that, you won’t need to worry about a bra etc because it means they’ve usually got inbuilt corsetry if they stand up by themselves.

My TaTas are a little smaller than most of the bees commenting but I am a 38 DD! In this picture I was wearing a strapless longline bra but I’m having cups sewn in to replace it. While it doesn’t look like it, the bust of my dress is actually super structured so that helps.
