The Nu Bra will add thickness.  the cups are contoured slightly to give a “lifted” appearance.


Do you feel uncomfortable going without a bra?  The dress seems alterted very well to fit and if it isn’t falling down, I don’t think you would need one

Likewise- do you “need” a bra?  It looks like it fits great to me!  Gorgeous dress!

It does not look like you need one…but if you are not comfortable, you might have to shop around.

It doesn’t look like you need it, but if you wanted maybe the seamstress could just add some thin liner cups into it?

@lovelyduckie:  I honestly wouldn’t bother with a bra, the dress seems very supportive as-is. I know that I will probably be going bra-less on my wedding day for similar reasons.

Second the suggestion to see if your tailor will add in cups if you would feel more secure with them. My dress has built-in straps and lightly lined cups and while I’m normally the person who doesn’t want her boobies to move an INCH no matter what I’m going, I feel great in the cups and small band that are sewn in.

Ok, I second the suggestion with the cups…and then there are also the silicone ones you could use as well.

At the risk of sounding old-fashioned, work on your posture.  A long line bra forces your body to stand a bit straighter, and that could make a big difference for you.  I have terrible posture, but when I am conscious of it, and stand straighter, everything looks better!
