    @Mee:  My dress is strapless and has an inner corset. I’m not wearing a bra (or a longline or anything under my dress) because I don’t feel like tugging at it all day to keep it up. My seamstress is sewing fake boobs into the lining of the dress to give me some extra “oomph” because my breasts are small enough that I don’t “need” a bra.

    Personally, I like bustiers.  I think they’re flattering to all women, regardless of size – they give you that little extra curve in at the waist, and they’re provide support for your bust.  For larger chested women, the support is fantastic, for smaller chested women, it’ll give you a bit of lift and you can add a little oomph to what you’ve got if you so choose.  Plus the bridal ones look really pretty.  If you’re doing pictures of getting ready and a little bit is showing (like when you’re getting laced in), it won’t look bad.

    If I had to do it over again I would sew it in.  What every you do, do not get those stick-on rubber boobs thing.  I though I had a brilliant idea with that because the back of my dress is low so I didn’t want to worry about a strapless bra showing in the back.  Well after getting all sweaty from dancing, rubber boops came popping out of the dress on the dance floor.  Not cool.

    I wore a bustier.  I love it!  It was the only thing I could find that gave me the support I needed.  Gotta hold the girls up!!

    I had pads sewn in.  Worked great!  Definitely recommend it!

    I’ll be wearing a bustier with my dress. I love the support it gives, and I don’t have to worry about anything showing if there’s a wardrobe malfunction *knocks on wood*

    My dress was a corset style. It did not do enough. I had an old bra sewn in (just the cups and underwire). The foam cups they had did nothing. My girls were in their proper place all day.

    I had a longline bra that was sewn into my dress. It was the best because it made it so I never had to pull my dress up like most brides do all night.

    I had my bra sewn in and it fit perfectly. I would definitely recommend this option.

    I wore a strapless long line bra and it worked perfectly. No issues at all.
