There’s a VS bra mentioned in this thread that seems to be popular.

I’m curious about this also. My dress has a low back too, and I plan on having cups sewn in. But if I go in for my fitting, and for some reason they can’t sew in cups, or I still don’t like how it would look, I’m really at a loss as to what to wear underneath.

Also, on a somewhat related note, does anyone wear anything besides regular panties under their dress?

@jamithebride: Oops, sorry, I didn’t realize you responded. Honestly I’ve never tried the bra myself so I’m not sure. Do you have a bridal consultant you could ask, possibly where you purchased the dress?

How low is your dress? There are many brands of straps you can buy that connect to whatever regular bra you want and convert them into low backs.

They’re also like 5 to 10 bucks so it might be worth a try for the price anyway 🙂

@MissButterTart:  I tried this option first and they SUCK!! Total waist of money, they gave me no support (I’m a 10B) and they tend to slowly move upwards, I wouldn’t recommend them at all, plus they don’t work for strapless bras!!

I believe the bra you are looking for is called a Long Line Bra.  Victorias Secret has some great ones.  I am not using one, but my mom used to work there so I have one.  It is far better than just a low back strapless.  I would take a look into those!

Aw really? I was so excited to see those converters, I think I’ll give it a try anyway, I’d rather not spend hundreds of dollars on a bustier I’ll wear once.

 

You could always go with a classic hollywood move too:

Tape.

 

Duct or otherwise. There are really strong tapes which are skin-safe. Just tape those girls together and voila! Ridiculous cleavage.

@MissButterTart:  Hahaha! I am totally considering tape now…I wonder if it would stick once you get sweaty from dancing though LOL.

That backless corsolette bridetobe posted looks sooo perfect. But $180 is definitely not in the budget for undergarments, sadface 🙁

My seamstress told me not to get the VS one because they are foam in the front and have less boning than a lot of other ones.  By relying on foam, the bra adds about an inch or so to your waist and bust.  I certainly don’t want that.  She sent me to a local lingerie shop that fitted me for a wonderful bustier.

EDIT: I’m speaking only of bustiers/long bras, so not the multi-way strapless mentioned elsewhere and linked on another post.
