I’d go with nude, as white can reflect a bit.

I always go with nude because it’s just easier and always works.  (As a general rule, the bra won’t show if it matches your skin.)

You could go with white if your dress has lots of material/is thick enough to not show the white through the gown.

I went with a white longline bra under mine.  NORMALLY under white, you want to wear a nude bra, (because a white bra under white clothing actually shows through and looks tacky).  But if your dress is somewhat thick fabric, it shouldn’t show through, (mine didn’t).

If you are planning on wearing it again, and especially since you’re only finding black or nude, go with the nude.

I was told to wear nude (or whatever matches your skin tone) under white.  But if the fabric in your dress is really thick it probably wouldn’t matter much if you get white either.

You’ll be fine!  The only reason I went with a white longline under my dress is because I had purchased it on clearance and my only choices were white or white!  If I’d had the choice, I probably would have chosen the nude.

Go for nude. I had a couple pics where my dress slipped down just a titch (it was heavy!), and it blends in so much better:

Nude if you need it, a better option would be to get something built into your dress if you can though, then you dont need to worry about it showing.

I went with nude. Like julie12:  I also had some pictures where my bra showed & I feel nude hid it better.

I read somewhere that one should always wear a nude bra under white. It makes sense with a white tshirt or something, because the white bra is still visible under the shirt. However for a wedding dress it might not be that big of a deal if the material is thick or if there’s enough padding/boning/etc underneath. You’ll be safe with nude though
