    Depending on your dress you might be good without anything. I’m a Dear Daughter and I wore all my homecoming/prom dresses without a bra, they had enough support- and my wedding dress has much more already so I don’t think I’ll need one. Some people just aren’t comfortable without them, but I’m not comfortable with them under those heavy dresses 🙂

    I need the cups sewn in so the dress doesn’t gape away from my small chest 🙂

    I have a moderately large chest, and I did not want to wear a bra. My dress came down just slightly in the back enough to where a bra strap could have possibly peeked out at the wrong time.

    I had cups sewn in just so I didn’t feel so commando.

    I’m not generally comfortable without a bra under whatever I wear, so I don’t see why I wouldn’t wear a bra with my wedding dress. Then again, if I can help it, due to my um, modesty issues, I’m not really interested in any of the spaghetti-strapped, strapless, halter or (fill in the blank here) gowns that seem really common these days and in which wearing a regular-style bra would pose a problem. (If another gal wants to go for that on her wedding day, that’s her business, but it’s just not for me.) Rather, I’m hoping to find a long-sleeved (or maybe 3/4 sleeved) gown or gown pattern if I have the dress made (my mom had asked me to consider having her make the dress for me as an option, at least for economical reasons; I haven’t decided yet if I will be taking her up on that) that is neither low cut in the front nor the back. Unfortunately, I haven’t found anything in my hometown that fits what I have in mind. (And I don’t have a credit card nor am I in a position to get one as I do not have an income to help keep up with it, so online shopping is out.)  But I digress.

    But yeah, I do plan on wearing a bra with my wedding dress.

    I was going to but after trying out a few different option, (with bra, with cups, without anything), my mom and I agreed that it looked best without a bra and without cups.  My dress did have an internal corset that was very supportive though.

    I am wearing a bra – a longline bra. It’s mostly for the corset (aka sucking it in!) and for the shape it helps give. Also…I’m a Dear Daughter and don’t personally feel comfortable, even though my dress would be plenty supportive. Just my personal fear and all. Longline bras aren’t “sexy,” but I’ll either change undergarments after or he’ll have to deal with it. Lol

    I’m an F, and I was originally gonna skip the bra. I agree with other girls that I’m not really comfortable without one, but my dress is really supportive and has a little cleavage, and I kinda wanted to stuff them to the sides to minimize it. I ended up getting a bra to wear, thinking it will maybe spread them out on its own.

    I thought for sure I would have to wear a bra, as I have Dear Daughter boobs and haven’t gone braless under anything since I was like 14. When I was trying on dresses I had a bra on but the consultant suggested I take it off to see if the dresses would sit better without. Lo and behold, the one I ended up choosing has awesome internal support and I don’t think I will have to wear a bra for once in my life. I attached a pic, just keep in mind the sample didn’t fit quite right so the dress will sit a teeny bit higher up on my chest when mine comes in.

    No bra for me!!  I’m only a B cup, and my dress has tons of support and a corset back so it just sucks me right in anyways – no worries for me!

    Mine has a built in corset, but I will more than likely add in some cups to assist the ladies!

    My dress had a built in corset with a zipper over it, so I didnt wear anything under it. I have D cups, and my girls didn’t go ANYWHERE!

    @pinkandsparkly: You look gorgeous!

    I am wearing a miraclesuit body shapewear under the dress and it comes with a bra, but honestly the bodice of my dress is tight and I think will take care of the “girls” on its own.
