    I have my dress (yay!) and it is [email protected] Y0rK 5922 (picture on my profile) which is quite low backed.

    I hadn't planned to have a low back dress, because I have quite big boobs and getting nice underwear just generally can be a pain. But of course I put it on and it was the one and so it just had to happen.

    So, I'm hoping that some other larger busted ladies (E cup and up) have some recommendations? i have found 1 low back and strapless bra (though it doesn't necessarily need to be strapless, I just think it would be better if it was) in white, and in my size (32F) which I think it low enough and will work but it's pretty ugly/functional.

    I've searched on amazon, and can't really find much. Is it impossible to find something a little bit pretty and white/nude in this sort of shape? I'm not asking for amazing and intricate. I don't know if anyone has seen or had one of the strapless [email protected] but they have a sort of semi-lacey, nude one which I was hoping might translate into a backless design, but apparently nope.

    So, anyone know anywhere I could try, or even has bought some and can say they're good? Or should I just bin off the hopes of pretty underwear and stick to functional? Lol. xx

    Have the shop talked about having cupped sewn I to the dress rather than wearing a bra? I was bugged booed but now they have shrunk since kids so not sure if can be much help. Also try d3b3n3ms they do a lovely bridle section of underwear. But speak to the shop as they should be able to recommend what to wear/ do. I think I will be wearing granny knickers on my wedding day to hold everything in haha x

    Haha. I think I might have to, although i've got a mermaid gown with a hoop so I'm double covered from waist to toe! Lol. I tried Debenhams but nothing with a low back that was pretty :( Thinking I might take a trip over to Cambridge with my bridesfolk as there's not that much shopping in Norwich, see what we can find. Definitely need to check out Ted Baker for BM dresses as well. xx

    Have you actually tried the dress without a bra? It may be that you could get away without one if the structure is ok. I thought I would need one with mine but it was so boned I never.

    I haven't tried it without actually, but I don't know that it will look the same/as full without a bra. Might pop in there in a few weeks and just try it on without to see. xx

    I'm big busted (34 E) and very paranoid if not wearing a bra... However, I don't need one with my dress, it supports me enough and pulls me in and up where needed x

    If your dress has a corset it should, if it fits your bust well be able to do all the work, a bra will work against the corset and can't really grip you and hold you in as the bras in the way! I'm not wearing a bra and when I whipped my bra off to try it without the dress looked 100 times better and did up much more closely! I said about cups being sewn in but I've only got small peaches so don't need it the bridal shop said it was for ladies with a fuller bust!
