I definitely had bra cups sewn in, but I have nada up top, so I didn’t need support.

I’m not wearing anything. My dress has a fairly low neckline, straps and a lace up back. There’s enough support in the boning and lace up that I decided not to bother with a bra. Oh and I do have plenty to support 🙂

I think I may just have cups sewn in, it seems easier. But if your dress is a thinner material or satin the cups may show. My SIL wore the stick on bra from victoria secrets. She said when she sweat a little from dancing they were slipping off. Im not really sure what else you can do besides the stick on bras or cups sewn in. Have you gone to a lingere shop like VS and asked?

I went braless!  It was more comfortable, and I had a corset back anyway, so there was plenty of support.

I had a backup long line bustier, but it wasn’t that comfortable, so at the last minute, I did away with it!

As of right now I’m planning on going braless. But I may buy a long-line bra too just to see which I like better.

I guess it depends on the material of your dress. If it is satin, I would not recommend going braless. The SIL I was telling you about that used the stick on bra got frustrated it kept on slipping,and eventually took it out. She was angry that alterations forgot to add cups. In the pictures you can see some nipple action going on through the dress since it was a fitted satin.

Hmm, July… my dress was satin and it worked just fine.  It was rusched however.

Ya hers was not ruched just a fitted satin on the top. She said she feel uncomfortable with some of the photos. And it was not a cheap gown either it was a designer gown. I think it really depends on the dress just something to think about.

i was braless in mine! and i’m a Dirty Delete…i had suport b/c of the corsert back in my dress. A bra would have added bulk for me.

One thinmg about nu-bras, everyone who has worn them recently, well, they run amuck and end up showing. Invest in some hollywood tape or something. The last wedding i was at, the bride had a plunging v-neck and when she bent over to hug someone, i saw the ENTIRE side of her boob. Granted, she’s really small-chested, but still, I shouldn’t have seen that much of her boob even if it was clad in nu-bra. I was really shocked!

The nu bra is what my sil had! I just didnt know what it was called, but i just looked it up. She probably meant it doesnt stay put. It tends to slip around if you put on any lotion or sweat or have any type of moisture what so ever.
