I purchased a really supportive strapless bra,  at a lingerie shop.  (Not Victorias secret.   That’s not supportive. )  for reference,  im 34DDD.  It worked great.

I would get measured for a bustier (I know that’s not what you wanted to hear!) Department stores like dillards, Macy’s, or even jc penny have great shape wear options for large busted women (I’m a 36DD). If you aren’t well supported under the gown it will definitely show in all the pictures. Plus, a well fitting undergarment can make all the difference in any outfit! Consider it a wedding expense, I promise you’ll wear it again!!

I’m 30E-30F (UK) and couldn’t get any to work well under my dress. Instead I’ve got a stick on backless strapless bra as its the only solution.

Can you have a corset back put into your dress? Mine was and it supported my 34DDDs just fine. No bra needed.

I wear a 38k and have no idea what I’m going going to do either.  I was told to buy a bustier, but will most likely need to get one custom made. I may just go bra less if I find no other options, and add add corset back to my dress for more support….good luck to you!

My dress has a low back and I’m going to get a strapless bra altered to fit me since they don’t make speciality bras in my size (32H). I really have no other option as I wouldn’t feel comfortable without a bra. My boobies need LOTS of support in order to look their best and I don’t want them flopping around on my wedding day! lol!

I’m a 38DD and I actually went braless. However my dress had a bra sort of built into it. I would look into getting shaper wear and see what options are out there.

Yeah, you’re gonna need a longline bra, unless the bodice of your dress is already super structured.  I was a 32F and that’s what I had to do.

You say you won’t wear it again, but that logic is a bit flawed.  Are you going to wear your wedding dress again?  This is an undergarment that will basically be an extension of your dress.

This is the bra I bought, and was pleased with (you can find more sizes elsewhere):  http://www.amazon.com/Dominique-Longline-Lace-Torsolette-Ivory/dp/B0000CBXI5/ref=sr_1_28?ie=UTF8&qid=1433800953&sr=8-28&keywords=bustier+bra

I wear 34D or DD and needed something strapless for low-back dress. This was a real challenge… strapless bras tend to just slide off me, so I shopped around and found a corset that has a low back. It also conveniently sucks in my extra tummy. That being said I haven’t decided if it is the best solution. It supports me plenty but the front of my dress is v-neck and I don’t like my boobs popping out there. Plus you can see the edges of the corset if you look close at my chest (I’d like to think people won’t, but you never know). Now as an alternative I’m actually considering body taping my boobs into place, as weird as that sounds. I ordered the tape and will try it this week. If it works i’ll let you know!

I wear a 36DD so I bought a full corset and had it sewn into the bodice of my dress, LOVED that it stayed in place all night no problem!

MrsPhishBee:  I’m a 34DDD/36DD and had cups sewn in.  My dress didn’t have a corset but it had boning for structure, and I was supported just fine. I didn’t feel any digging in from the boning either.

If your dress doesn’t have structure, I agree with PP that a strapless longline bra is your other alternative.  I personally never had any luck with tape or adhesive bras.
