What size are you? I didn’t wear a bra with mine because the dress was structured enough not to need it

Um, I’m a 34 DD and just had cups in mine.

I personally have this problem as well… my dress does have straps but the front is thick and the back is very thin straps – impossible for me to get a bra in a D cup that works. My friend actually recommended that I get some of the clear straps to use instead since the thin straps of the dress would draw all attention away from them.

I would be horrified if someone told me to just duct tape my breasts into place for my wedding… I can’t imagine having to take it back off again.

What’s your size? Most bridal salons I went to sold longlines there and could order to my size, but I ended up finding one pretty easily for like $35 at a local lingerie shop. I ordered a 38DD or a 40D or something like that.

Do you really want a strapless or is that just what you’re being shown?  

I’m a 34DD and knew I wouldn’t be comfortable in strapless.  Super happy with the strapped dress I found.

I wear a 32F/30G and none of the strapless dresses I’ve tried on needed a bra under them, they all had like a built in corset thingy

What size are you? I’m a 32F and I wanted to be able to wear a regular bra, so I piced a dress with straps! I had to go to a big bridal salon to find a decent selection of non-strapless dresses, but it was so worth it!

@nocleverbeepun:  do you have a nordstrom?  they have a few brands that go up to 34DD.  I am a 32 DDD and they helped me find something.  strapless bras aren’t comforable anyways.

@Pele:  What size are you? I am a 34G and I will be having cups sewn into my strapless, sweeetheart dress. I find a dress first and then worry about finding a bra. You might find a dress that doesn’t need a longline/specialty bra.

Hey Fellow Calgarian,

I tried on a bunch of dresses here in town that were strapless and NEVER even considered a bra.  Most people I know wore nothing under the dress just had the cups sewn in.  I also have never heard that you can’t sew in a cup bigger than a D.  That is crazy!

Where are you looking?  What type is your dream dress?  I was a plus bride with larger cup size and most if not all strapless dresses I tried had enough structure to handle most cups.  I opted for a custom made dress with straps and covered back (to cover scars) and still never wore a bra….just my cups.

I am very intrigued as to where you are shopping as I am in the Wedding industry here in town.  Feel free to message me if you have questions.

@Pele:  My dress is strapless and I had a hard time finding a strapless bra. I knew I definitely wanted a strapless because I wouldn’t feel comfortable enough without one. I ended one that came down lower in the back Because the back of my dress kind of dips down. I went to quite a few different stores And nothing that came low enough. I ended up buying a Wacoal bra. I really didn’t want to spend $60 on a bra, but it works perfectly. They come in many different sizes I believe 32-40, A or B to DDD is most styles and some go up to an H. They really are worth the money. I haven’t saw any longline bras at the stores I went to. Good Luck!

Most girls don’t even wear a bra, because the dress holds everything in. You can also get cups added. Worry about finding a dress first, and forget the bra for now.

i found a longline bra at davids bridal, im a 42D and the bra combined with the dress holds my girls in place nicely.
