i logged in from work just to post this!

my pant size is between a size 4 and a size 6. my bra size is 30HH (not a typo, there is a 11″ difference between my underbust and bust, and I should really be wearing a 28 underbust, but that’s a whole othet story. ) my mom is a 38G; so I definitely know all about this topic! 🙂 you average strapless bra does nothing for me; i find that long line bras and corsets work magic though! i’ve had very good luck with companies like Felina, Freya, panache, etc. i buy all of my bras online at http://www.figleaves.com

For my wedding, i am going strapless (sort of… i’m having decorative off the shoulder straps put in) and braless. my dress (maggie sottero, jenna) has a crazy corset built in that holds the ladies in just fine! I would strongly recommend this approach (or again, a long line bra works the same way).

@mrsem2bee:  Thank you! I really love it, and it’s going to long so nice when the support gets built in. The dress itself fit almost perfectly!

@yellowducky1982:  I would love to be able to wear ANYTHING without a bra, lol! But seriously, building a bra into the dress I think is the best option for most busty brides. Plus, you can buy a bra that fits you exactly, in a brand that you already know you love, and get the exact support you need/want.

@yellowducky1982:  34DDD. When my seamstress pinned the dress, it did not even budge! I got a very good strapless bra from Dillards which helped a ton.

I found that NOT wearing a bra worked wonders for my dress! the bra just added way too much support and the girls just sat underneath my chin. I’m a 36E btw

EDIT: the cups need to be made a tiny bit smaller. 🙂

i am no longer big chested (had a reduction) but I remember the pain of clothes shopping.  i still think about big chested girl issues when i try on clothes.  first, you can have a bra sewn into your dress.  if you like a strapless dress style, you can alway add straps for extra support.  wedding dresses, unlike street clothes, will be altered to fit you perfectly, so there should be plenty of support in any dress you choose.

ah, read your update. glad you found a strapless bra!!! where’d you get it?

personally I still think having cups sewn in makes one feel “free-er” lol. But it depends on body shape too I guess. 🙂
