Hello all!! This is my first post on here. My wedding is not until 2013, but we already started looking as we tried a couple on and I just couldn’t find “the one”. Well we went to a small boutique and I found 3 that I really like. Well let me rephrase that 1 that I really like and 2 that my mom likes. She also likes my pick. I am a 36D chest I normally wear push-up bras just becasue anything to hold these heavy assests up is a plus!! Girls with bigger breasts understand!!I am not that big either I am 5’3″ 135-140 pounds.
Anyways, anyone suggest a nice strapless bra? I currently have been trying on the dress with my biofit strapless bra by Victorias Secret.
My wedding is going to be on the beach, smaller wedding just 1 bridesmade my mother and the groom maybe a groomsman just depends. As a lot of our friends have turned out to be not so good friends and his family is just drama filled!
The dress i really like is the Maggie Soterro Karena Royale
the other two are : http://www.ellabridals.com/dress-5468

I wore this bra by Apostrophe at sears. It has a super low back and it was awesome. I tried the more expensive options at davids bridal but they keep bunching up around my belly for some weird reason.

I am about the same size as you and I also strongly considered Karena Royale! They recommended a corset type strapless with boning and good lift. I actually ended up purchasing this bra anyways for the dress i went with (Lazaro 3009) – unfortunately with a smooth fabric like my dress is the boning shows so I am wearing spanx under my dress and will put the corset under the spanx to smooth it out! 🙂
Regardless…you will need a corset of some kind (full or partial) to hold those bad boys up! The one I got at my bridal salon was only $35, so it was much cheaper than one from victoria secret or something!

Since Karena Royale has a corset back you could also just get cups sewn into the dress. A corset back will hold you in and up, ha ha.

i wore the VS biofit strapless on my wedding day and it was awesome as you probably already know. i still wear it all the time. I actually bought the C (i have been in denial of my size D boobs) but the C gave me the fit and lift i wanted in my wedding dress where as the D was much better fit for everday wear

I tried that one at sears too. You just have to get a much smaller size than you normally wear. To suck it all in.

But i ended up getting one at dillards that had more support in the actual cup.
