    swonderful:  I just read an article that said women should wear black foundation garments because they are the least likely to be see-through with flash photography. The bridal consultants should be able to help you find a dress where a black bra wouldn’t be a problem

    Wear it when you go shopping! That will be the best way to tell.

    Really your problem is around the edges of the dress. Here’s that classic “zipping up the dress” shot where my bra is peeking out of the edge of my dress. No big deal. You probably cant tell. But it’s an ivory bra with a white dress, so if you stare really closely you might be able to see where the white beading ends and sliver of ivory peeks out.

    Later on I got the dress in a better position and I don’t think my bra “shows” in any other photos.

    But if I were wearing a black bra?? Goodness. I’d have to be so vigilent every moment and in every pose to make sure the dress and bra were sitting just right.

    You’ll probably see it through some of the dresses, but if you’re just trying on it shouldn’t be a big deal. I just had cups sewn into my dress for the day of.

    swonderful:  Lots of people don’t wear bras. Or they have cups sewn into the dress to give more support.

    I never ever ever ever go out without a bra. So this is not something I was comfortable with even though the seamstress said it would be the easiest thing to do with my low-ish back dress. So I’m not a good source of info on that topic. But hundreds of other bees have done it. Hopefully they’ll chime in and help you out!

    swonderful:  I just had cups sewn into the bust of mine – no bra to mess with or worry about!

    swonderful:  I didnt wear a bra with mine, it was so structured, it actaully looked really dumb with a bra. Bring the black one with you to try on dresses. if you buy a dress that it peeks out of, or you can see it through, then go buy a whote/ivory one before your alterations appointment! Chances are, you’ll end up not needing a new one 🙂

    I didn’t wear a bra with my dress either. I second the idea of getting cups sewn in to whichever dress you select. No risk of a black bra slipping in to pictures.

    I just had cups sewn in.  Many dresses have a bra like closure, underneath the zipper/buttons/corset and that was enough support for me.

    For trying them on, I wore a nude bra.  I would have gone with a similar colour if I needed to wear a bra.

    swonderful:  I always wear nude underthings under white. I’m not wearing a bra with my wedding dress and have nude spanx for underneath.

    swonderful:  I originally wasn’t planning on wearing a bra with my dress. My dress was an A-Line and had enough support but I had the seamstress remove the boning as it was making me pointy (which apparently I was the only one who saw it). The dress loss structure so I ended up wearing a bra. It was ivory just like my dress but I don’t think the colour woulda mattered as no matter how I moved, you couldn’t see the bra. They put a bra keeper in the back of my dress so that it wouldn’t be an issue with the corset back.  Not all dresses require bras so its really going to depend on the dress you choose and what kinda structure the dress has. I would wear a black bra when you go shopping and go from there. I tried on all dresses without a bra so I could see what they looked like without or if I would even need one. Good luck finding what works best for you!
