What about the sticky bra’s that don’t have straps? I wore this with my dress and it stayed really well.

@BeckyS0:  I wont be much help with which bra because I’m a Dirty Delete, but I’ve heard that if you swipe a cotton ball soaked in face toner over your chest before sticking sticky bras on it really helps! If I had the luxury of going braless, I totally would! get your seamstress to add some chicken cutlets and just go bare!

I think you’re only options are the stick on bra, the chicken cutlets which are also stick on or having cups sewn in.  I’d go with sewn in cups if I were you.  The sticky bras aren’t the best in my experience.

PS is that a stripper pole in the middle of the room?! 😛

My seamstress just added cups into the dress so I wouldn’t need a bra.  I would just do that.  It’s so much more comfortable than any bra

I wear a Dirty Delete so I’m on the total opposite end of the spectrum for you, however I got cups sewn in and it made a world of difference! Not only does it look better, but it’s great for support. It’s pretty inexpensive to do as well, so it may even be cheaper than buying a bra specifically for low back clothing.

I have a question along this line! I’m also trying to figure out what to wear under my dress. I’ve heard a lot of people recommend getting cups sewn into the dress, and this might be a stupid question, but do you buy a bra and have the seamstress sew it in, or do they make one? Thanks!

@BeckyS0:  I didn’t have any problems with it actually. It probably helped that it was freezing cold on my wedding day and we had an outside ceremony but I really didn’t even notice it.

@BeckyS0: haha love it! I was like what is sticking out of her head and then I looked closer…!  Hope it’s in there securely – my ex rented his house out and the tenant put one up in the house and had a bit of an episode where it came crashing down and went through the window!

@BeckyS0: oh and btw about the long line bra if that works..you can have cups sewn into those too to fill out more (this is what I had done!)

I’m about your size and have tried the nubra, and if you use extra double-sided tape on super-dry skin it should be OK. BUT! try it first! you don’t want a surprise wardrobe malfunction on the day of!

Also, they make bras with very low criss-cross straps in back – I think they’re more comfortable myself.
