What about adding a low back converter to a strapless bra?

Here’s an actual bra that comes with one:

Can a seamstress add anything into the dress so that you don’t need a bra? Some of the ones I tried on had a band inside the dress that you’d fasten first; whether one of these could be added low I don’t know.

I’d be tempted to ring the likes of Bravissimo, Figleaves and Leia Lingerie and ask what they’ve got. You could potentially order a load the week before the fitting and return them afterwards.

I second trying a low back converter, or seeing if your seamstress can sew some loops into the back of your dress to keep a bra band down and out of sight.

I’m a Bee who opted to go braless AND comando for my wedding!

Is there anyway you could have some cups sewn into your dress? It doesn’t look like an overly clevagey cut. Would you be comfortable with that?

rachaell :  http://www.enderlegard.com This is where I got mine (it was reccomensed by my bridal shop because I needed a backless body/bra but am too big for those stick on things). They are based in London and I got it within 2 days of ordering and they were very accommodation of all my email stress questions.  

 

They really aren’t cheap – so it depends on how you feel about spending that much; I spoke to Rigby and Peller about custom ordering something and they said prices started at more than £700…. so I bought mine here instead!

 

I don’t think they have your exact size (maybe 1 cup smaller) so it might be something your seemstress has to tweak.  I’m a 30G and got something that is perfect 🙂

My seamstress stitched the Ultimo Low Back Bra into my dress and it was perfect! You can get it anywhere including Asos, I think I bought mine from Debenhams as I needed to go and try on for size.
