I should have!! Pre-pregnancy I was a 36DD, and I ended up buying a 38E strapless bra for my wedding dress. I think it gave me a little too much help and I wish I’d gone braless!! Never thought I would say that, but my dress would have been fine on its own and kept everything where it belonged.

If your dress has enough structure to hold you up, go for it!!

Oh no! My Mom is making my dress and I wanted 3/4 sleeves. I just bought an Ella Moss longline bra (32dd) Have you checked http://www.figleaves.com/us/search/40ddd/ ? They have a great selection.

Bra-less and CAN’T WAIT. The structure is actually one of my most favorite things about my dress.

I hate bras lol I’m blessed to be a perky 38DD so a lot of dresses I can’t get away with it. I’m gonna try to avoid it if I can. If not I have my go to strapless to wear. It’s a Wacoal red carpet it’ll work with it.

I pick up my dress next week but still need to have it altered etc for my wedding in March. I have a bra that I think I am going to wear with it because I dont want my boobs looking like crap for my wedding. My boobs are fairly large for my frame. I hate it when you see a girl in a pretty dress but their boobs look bad because the dress has a gap where the boobs are… just doesnt look good.. looks like it doesnt fit. We will see what the dress shop says about wearing a bra or not. I know when I went in and tried dresses on she asked me why I was wearing a bra and I told her cause I didnt want my boobs hanging to my knees lol and she said dont worry they wont.. but we will see..

Me! I’m letting the ladies fly! I’ve never found a strapless bra that is comfortable, and since I’ll be rocking my dress for at least 10 hours, no bra the better.

I’m going braless. So happy about it, I hate wearing a bra. I had my seamstress sew in cups to give my boobs a little “umph”, but the front of my dress has some boning in it so everything should stay where it needs to.

I cound’t believe it but the first time I tried my dress on I just had to lift the girls in place and they were locked and loaded after that! I was so happy not to have to wear a bar with my dress.I was also super concerned the boning would eventually start poking me but it never did, the perk of buying a really well made dress!

I went braless at the advisement of my seamstress and at the beginning of the day it was great…about 2.5 hours in, not so much. I’m a 40DD for reference.
