Try a longline bra instead — they stay put!

I just found an awesome strapless bra.  its a walcol, and it has a natural look to it… so no push up, which Ivwe always found to be ore hindering on large natural breasts.  I used this one when trying on strapless dresses and it was awesome!  Highly recommended.  It kind of hugs your chest, and allows them to mold into your dress.  

 

I am a 32 Dirty Delete,  and natural.  My boobs move around.  They have been known to “flop”  🙂

If strapless bras don’t stay put, it makes me wonder if you’re wearing the correct size (some statistic out there says that 80% of women wear the wrong size, most of them wearing too big of a band and too small cups. I used to wear 36C until I got properly sized and am actually a 32DD)

I would go to a fancy-pants lingerie boutique, or Nordstrom, Dillards, any place that stocks a huge variety of weird sizes (Victoria’s Secret not so much…) and have someone measure you. Then it’s only a matter of finding the brand that fits you right most of the time, and the style that fits your dress needs.

A tighter band should keep it in place, and of course with a tighter band you’d need to look at larger cups. Good luck 🙂

Yes, a longline bra.  You need support and plain strapless won’t cut it.  I have one from a brand called Carnival that is OK, but I tried on some at David’s Bridal that were a bit nicer.

 I am a 36Dirty Delete I tried on tons, JCPenny had a big selection online, but not in the store, Macy’s had nothing and Nordstrom had a few.  I ended up buying the one at David’s Bridal (I did not get my dress here though) it was a last resort because they do not accept returns in the store. I think if you buy it online you can return it online in 14 days.  They gave me a bra that was clearly one worn by many people, which i refused, then they tried to give me one with spray tan on it, and when i refused again they finally brought out a new one in an unopened bag. so, if you go, be picky! and bring someone with you to do up the hooks if you’re trying it on, the teenager they had working was not up to the task and couldn’t line up the hooks, boo to poor service, but yay to a bra that works with my dress!

Please find a real bra store and not VS! The support shoild come from the back of the bra’s band. I have this strapless bra and it supports me very well and I have full breasts.
