Good question. I can’t wait to hear some of the answers. When they alter my dress, I think they are able to put a bra in – so I don’t know that I have to worry about it.

Then, there is always VS who has every type of bra imaginable 🙂

well I don’t know if you just need a strapless bra or a corset/longline style that comes all the way down to your waist but you can get a regular strapless bra in any department store.

@marchbride26: What was the cup size?  Just move up a band size and you should be fine.  Cup size (A, B, C) stays the same – the number in front is what you should be looking at.  For example, if the 32 was too tight, get a 34 or 36.  Make sure to try them on with your dress though, if you can, because different brands fit differently.  If David’s has the exact same bra with a larger band, why not get that?

EDIT: In a pinch, if you don’t want to risk shopping around and buying a bra that won’t hide under the dress like the one they showed you, you can get the original bra you tried on with it and just buy a band extender at any department or lingerie store.  They’re just an extra piece with bra hooks, so that you can get a few more inches out of a too-small band.

Hi! Don’t freak out 🙂 I’m at 5 weeks from my wedding and I just figured my bra out. I posted about it here, but the short story is that herroom.com is awesome. A thousand different styles (and a variety of size), and they let you order a ton and return the ones you don’t like or that don’t fit.

Do you have to have a bra? My dress didnt need one with added cups because it was so structured. Have you considered adding cups?

I did buy one for it and decided not to use it.  I searched low back strapless bras and chose one I liked from a store online I never heard of. Its a great bra.  It looked a lot like this

i am planning on getting cups sewn into my dress. that way when the dress “wiggles/moves” the bra will go with it. and also the lower back will look great too, since there isnt a bra poking/sticking out.
