I don’t have a bra recommendation, but you definitely need to get your foundation garment before you can really try on gowns with any confidence. I just got a stapless/spanx-ish situation from Kohls that covered my torse (in a-line gown). I did try on a corset dress w/ no bra and it fit well, if the dress you choose has good boning & corset you can def go braless. Good luck, & don’t get discouraged! My first shopping trip was horrible lol, second was much better : )

def helps with the right bra! it makes everything fit much better.  the first store i went to i wore my own strapless, and it didnt make things fit right, but when i went to davids i was able to find one that fit great and it made all the difference. Maybe try a specially bra shop? Not suer were you live but id would goole it.

o and i keep saying i wouldnt dress shop til i lost weight, but at the end of the day my fiance fell in love with me( fat and all) and its not going to change his opinon of me if i loose 20 pounds or not.

Granted i would love to loose some weight, but im not going to wait( dont have time) and im not going to order a smaller size in the hopes to loose weight( bad idea!)

So just rememeber your finace lovese you for you!

Don’t wear a bra at all, and find a dress with a corset back.

Here are my 36GGs in my corset back dress, sans bra

Here’s what they looked like with a strapless bra

I felt more comfortable and looked more natural without a bra. A good corset will hold you in perfectly.
