    Im going without a bra. If you can find a dress with good support, you could probably get away with that too. Some people have cups built in For extra support. You’ll probably enjoy dress shopping. I was surprised how much support was already built into the dresses, so if you’re worried about comfort, I’d definitely look for dresses with a lot of structure. Also, wedding dress sizes are evil. Most people are a size or two bigger than their regular dress size. Then you usually order to fit your largest area even if it doesn’t fit the rest of you, then the alter it to fit you. So for you, it might be fitted to your top half. For me, it was always my hips! I’m almost two sizes different from top to bottom! 

    Have a great time shopping!! Good luck!!

    If your dress is properly fitted and built with boning, you probably won’t need a bra. But to try on, I would wear one, because the samples won’t fit you.

    I went out and bought the comfiest strapless bra I could find 🙂 but I’m fine with strapless bras.

    Even if you don’t like strapless bras, when you go to try on dresses, I would definitely want to wear something because you’re going to need help getting into the dresses, getting laced up or clipped in. Depending on the store, this won’t always take place in private! Some places will offer you undergarments to use when you try on their samples too and you can decide which works best for you and the dress you pick out in the end eg. if you pick a laced up corset-back dress, you will not need as much support as an unboned bodice.

    Have fun! 🙂

    i’m going braless… strapless bra and definitely corsets push my boobs up too much and they look like they are coming out of my chin (I’m a 34F).  The dress store will order according to your largest measurement, and then take any place thats too big in.

    ETA: I brought strapless bras dress shopping, but tried everything on bra-less

    I’ve been told that I won’t need a bra. I have B boobs and the alterations people will put cups in for me.

    I wear a 36Dirty Delete and I had a bra on, but I took it off when I tried dresses on. Because all of the gowns I tried were corsets, that made it easier. And it also helped me realize that when I found my dress and purchased the sample that I don’t HAVE to wear a bra! WOOP! 

    So you can wear one, but if you don’t want to wear one on your wedding day then take it off. As my consultant told me “The second that you walked into this bridal salon, all modesty goes out the window”. I did wear boyshorts though for undies just so I wasn’t mooning her every time we changed gowns, haha.
