I’m not wearing one for all the reasons you mentioned.  My seamstress put the sew in cups in my dress and it is perfect. Just enough support but none of the tugging on a strapless bra all night.  I’m a full C cup and my dress is a sweetheart but it still worked out (I’m on my iPad otherwise I’d post a picture). Talk to your alterations person and see what she recommends.

No need for a bra with the dress, they should be able to make it fit so it’s not necessary. I’m an E cup and not planning to wear a bra with my dress.

I wore a bustier, it made me feel more comfortable! I really liked it, my husband liked it too 😉

No it’s not ncessary.  However, after trying on dresses with a long line bra, the bra does tend to keep the dress up better, as even with a good fit, a decent dress can weigh down.

I think I’ll probably end up getting bra padding sewn into my gown as the fit is perfect in all other places, but my A cup doesn’t fill out the top well enough.  The rest of the torso is perfect though and the dress is light, so I don’t think I’ll be pulling it up a lot.

I wore one but I’m a 36F and feel I ALWAYS look better with a bra so I wore a long-line.  But it definitely isn’t necessary for everyone.
