    Hi,
    This is the top of my dress and my question is where will I be able to find a bra to wear under it that wont show at the sides? My regular bras aren't visable front or back just the sides. The dress is v-neck front and back and I am a 34 g bra and dont/cant go braless as the dress is a simple gecian style with no corset.

    Thank you for any help/advice
    Lauraxx

    i was going to suggest a backless-strapless bra I bought one for my sons christening as my dress was backless i got it from b0ux av3nu3 it was great but at the time they didn't do big sizes so i just got the biggest and hoped for the best i was having to put it in place quite a lot and I'm a 34E however the shop assistant did say they were planning on doing larger sizes at some point so it might be worth looking into then again it might be pointless but just a suggestion lol xx

    Try Brav1ss1mo, they cater for the bustier ladies! Excellent support but pretty too. Would heartily recommend them :) they really know exactly what they are talking about when it comes to bra-ing up ladies! xx

    have you thought about asking the bridal shop to have cups sewn into the dress, so they give you the support without having to wear a bra, when my mum worked in a bridal shop they would get the brides to bring the bra they were going to wear on the day and then the seamstress would tack the bra to the dress and then sew it in, so they didnt worry about wearing a bra on the day then.

    I can't think of the name of them, but my dress shop sells these bizarre little strapless, backless, "boob cups", which is literally just like a sticky thing with a strap that goes over the top of the boob and it apparently works!

    I'm debating on trying them and my dress maker sings their praise being a larger bust lady also, keeps the noggs up as she puts it :P I'll find out the name next time I'm down.

    I'm surprised a larger busted lady recommends those cups. I had to use them when I had a tattoo done on my back and I didn't feel they gave any support at all

    Has the lady in the shop not given you advice?

    My dress has a built in corset so I don't need to wear a bra, but I tried another one on and my mum was saying about how it didn't suit because my boobs were too small.... we then got onto the conversation of that how do you find a bra that goes with it and the lady in the shop described the type you needed (one of those really little one's that just come under your boobs)


    I'd take that picture with you bra shopping and show it to the ladies in the shops you go in

    I'm not sure on the cups either,my shop said they'd be good for me cos I'm a B/C cup in bra so they push them up and support without a bra needed,I can't see them working if you're a G honestly .... Strapless bra I thinks best,one with low side panels x

    Have to say I agree with the other ladies re the stick-on bras; I'm not massive at a 30 E/F, and they work fine for me but if I was much bigger it'd be pushing it.

    I second speaking with the seamstress in the shop, or trying a few different strapless bras; some are backless, and some just sit lower. It might also be worth experimenting with regular bras, as they come up differently.
