I am the same cup as you and the last time I tried on my dress I was fine without a bra. It was tight around chest area so I think my girls will be okay while dancing but if it isnt tight for you and you dont feel secure I would wear it. Maybe you can wear the bras that suction to your breasts that dont have any straps? I cant wear a strapless bra, i feel like it doesnt support my girls enough but maybe it will work for you.

I was the same size as you when I got married and I had cups sewn in for a little support from the bottom and they definitely helped. Was not spilling over in my dress, but mine was strapless, so different style from yours

I am a 36DD and went braless on my wedding day. I had a strapless gown and just had some cups sewn in for a little lift.

try a longline strapless; the backs come down lower than a regular strapless and I feel being larger chested they hold me up more.

I’m also a DD, but due to age and weight loss (READ:sagging!), I couldn’t fathom not wearing a bra in my dress. I found a great one that had clear straps so it did not show with my illusion top/sleeves.

I am a 36D, which is sister size to 34DD and I have a few bras in that size. I would never dream of going without a bra, but the lace, lowback dress I wore made it very difficult  to find one so I had to go with a built in. Oh my gosh it worked great! Can’t believe I was so nervous about it looking back. I had all the support I needed, so I doubt you will have a problem.

I’m a 30F and I didn’t wear a bra. I never go braless in everyday life, but the cups in the dress were fine for me.

I’m a 34DD and am having cups sewn into my dress! My dress is strapless (and I NEVER wear strapeless) and has a corset back and they seem to be held up just fine! I think if the dress is tight enough right there for support you could definitely get away with having cups sewn in!

laura222:  I would request cups sewn into the dress. I am a 38E and I cannot go braless, but if the dress is well structured with cups sewn in, I see no issue. I sew, so or my sister’s wedding, I wore a strapless bra for pictures and ceremony, then for the reception knowing that the bra wouldn’t hold up and I like to dance.. I put my removeable straps back on the bra and hand sewed the straps the the straps of the dress since it was off shoulder and it worked just fine.

I feel you!  I am a 32DD and terrified of going braless.  I am going braless in my wedding dress though and feel totally supported in it!  It has a highly structured bodice and built in cups.  I tried an adhesive bra but it felt totally strange.  Here it is – one of a kind Justin Alexandermyweddingdress

I’m a 34DDD and went braless… My dress was all mesh and had zero structure, but I felt fine!

I am a 36D and went braless for my wedding.  I had thought about having cups sewn in, but because of the bocdice of the dress it wasn’t even necessary.

What a nice pic!  Close up you can really see that the beading (pearls? ) is delicious.
