    I didn’t vote for any of the options, because I think the best option would be to have a tailor sew supportive cups directly into the dress.  Is that a possibility?

    @CV888:  Hmmmm.  Maybe it’s because of the loose structure and fabric of the dress that she can’t build a bra in.  (You could get another seamstress to look at it also . . . just a thought). 

    Gorgeous dress, btw!!

    I’ll vote for the long line bra with the low back.  With DD’s you’re going to need more support than an adhesive bra can give and the other options seem like they’ll show through.  Even clear straps showing through you don’t want.  🙂

    I vote longline bra, even if you search for a few others before you make up your mind. I have a keyhole back sheath dress, and am a 32DD- so in the same boat with you. I’m thinking of treating myself to a really nice longline bra, because strapless bras are a pain for me to find in my size and my seamstress said sewn in cups wouldn’t be very supportive. Plus, afterwards I’ll be able to wear strapless/backless dresses whenver I want!

    Longline bra.  With a Dirty Delete, there’s no way that those adhesive cups are going to support you, and the clear plastic would look bad underneath the illusion back (just because its clear doesn’t mean you can’t see it).  I’m a Dirty Delete and longline bras are very supportive, you’ll just have to search until you find one that is low enough.

    I voted for the clear back strapless bra.  With the back on that dress, I think you will need the clear back in order to avoid the bra showing through.

    I voted for longline bra too, I’m a 32D and I don’t think I’d rely on sewn-in cups or adhesives with a dress like that. It’s beautiful btw!

    I voted for the long line bra.. With a sheer back I think clear straps would be distracting

     

    i have recently been OBSESSED with this dress. If I was getting married this year (still waiting on that darn ring…) I would definitely be wearing this. great choice!!

    The bra you linked to would probably would not be very noticeable.  Definitely try it out first though.  And keep in mind that the back is the featured part of the dress, so people will definitely be looking there!!!
