I don’t think I’ll be any help with the bra, I’ll try to look for something for you, but I just wanted to tell you that is a GORGEOUS dress!

I absolutely adore that dress.  Its amazing.  I don’t think you need a back necklace though.  It would look nice but its not at all necessary, the dress isn’t that low.  Have you looked into the Victoria’s Secret bra that can change the straps in a bunch of ways?  I’ve heard its amazing but I don’t want to buy it because it doesn’t have padding, which I need and you don’t!  Haha.  Check it out, its a bit expensive but worth it, and it’ll last forever.

I don’t think you need a back necklace either.  Honestly, I don’t think you are going to be able to find a bra whose back goes down that far.  Mine wasn’t that low and I still couldn’t find anything.  Victoria’s Secret does have extenders for some of their bras that you wrap around the front that might work.  I’ll look and see if I can find them.

This is the only one I could find, I don’t know if the back goes down low enough though:

I found these on FigLeaves.com that might work for you.  They seem to be out of stock of 32D in Beige, but it looks like they do make that size since it’s availabe in Black.  Maybe you can either try calling them to see when they’ll get more or try to find it online somewhere else if it works for you.




I did find the company who makes it that you can buy directly from, but they’re located overseas.  http://www.ultimo.co.uk/default.aspx

Good luck!  I’m having a hard time finding something too.  I need something completely backless but strapless as well, which makes it nearly if not completely impossible.

First off, LOVE your dress! As for the bra, I don’t remember what it was, but I once saw a strap that goes around your tummy and you hook it to the back of your bra and it pulls it down and out of sight while still letting you wear it.

For a bra: Victorias secret. That bra that you can wear like 100 ways, amazing! My sister has a sun dress that plunges in front and back, her boobs are like a 34Dirty Delete, and it works AMAZING for her. http://www2.victoriassecret.com/commerce/onlineProductDisplay.vs?namespace=productDisplay&origin=onlineProductDisplay.jsp&event=display&prnbr=EH-211598&page=1&cgname=OSBRPVERVIL&rfnbr=5708′ defer=’defer


Accessories: If anything, I would just wear a really gorgeous regular necklace. I love the look at the plain open back, i think it is so sexy and pretty on its own. Don’t interupt it with jewelery!!!!

Have you considered tying the bow in the back?  Maybe with a wider sash?

I agree with the Maidenform backless bra.  I have one.  It’s ok.  I bought mine at an outlet store for under $10.

Beautiful dress!  My back of my dress was plunging also – I went without any jewelry.  I think a backnecklace would take away from the gorgeous line of your dress.

In the bra dept…I just had cups sewn into my dress.  But I’m fairly small up top…

Try having your seamstress sew a modified bra into your dress – you’ll have the support & no worries of anything showing that shouldn’t be!

P.S. I love your dress & you absolutely don’t need any backwards jewelry!

Either get cups sewn in or there is a bra back extender that was described above. I’ve used them and they can get a bit uncomfortable though. 🙁

Also check out the Lauren Silva group.  I found a longline bra that I was going to use, until I decided that I was too claustrophobic in it!

They had great customer service and affordable prices.


Maybe one like this?


I agree that your dress is totally stunning!
