What did you all wear under your dress?
When my dress came in they told me that even though they sew in cups if I was larger than a B cup they would recommend a strapless bra because the cups wouldn’t provide enough support. Last I checked I was a 34C. I’m told I need my undergarments before my first fitting next month. They recommended in the color nude. Did you wear a strapless bra or a bustier/longline? I’ve only worn a longline once ages ago. When I wear strapless I find myself pulling it up constantly.
Also, where did everyone get their shoes?

I got a strapless bra at victoria’s secret – i’m a 34C also and i just want to have it in case I need it at my fitting – dress STILL not in – wedding in 20 days!!! I tried on 4 of them and it was the only one that fit right – I seem to just bust out of all of them or they give me that awful armpit fat thing – NO THANKS!! (it’s nude as well). As for skivvies, I purchased some spanx – this one to be exact: http://www.spanx.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4058277&cp=2992553.4058787&view=all&parentPage=family’ defer=’defer
I’ve worn it before and I find it comfortable – it doesnt roll down on me…… they told me i didn’t need to wear it, but honestly, it just makes me feel better to know everything is locked and loaded in there!
As for shoes – i did NOT want to spend a fortune since I spent more on my dress than I wanted to (and honestly, who will see them), but I wanted purple shoes! I ordered them online – they were Nina – I got them from Dillards (I got them from Nordstrom first but they didnt fit and when I went to exchanged them, they were totally sold out!) I also didn’t want a high heel because I’m tall as it is, fiance is only a few inches taller, and I wanted to be comfortable – so they’re 2.5 inches. Nina Culver i think – they weren’t my favorites, but they’ll do! (found some I loved but they were ridiculously uncomfortable and I had to return them).

I got a long line corset thingy at Fredricks of Hollywood of all places. It was the only place I could find one that was long enough since I am super tall and can’t stand regular strapless bras, I always pull on them. It worked out great because it had boning in it and made me super smooth and shaply. It wasn’t very exspensive either!

I wore a BodyMagic in nude and an ivory bra. I had sleeves and a high neckline though so i was able to wear a regular bra.

I’m the same bra size as you and I had sew in cups and they did the job. I wore traditional bridal shoes from Rainbow.

@Cem0930: I’m almost the same size and have a bustier. I really like it because it doesn’t slip like strapless bras seem to do (on me anyways) and it sucks in my waist a bit … always a plus.
