Hi girls My dress ties up at the back and I am looking for a good strapless bra. The dress is very secure when tied up so dont think the bra will go anywhere! :-8 But still want a good one so that they keep their shape. Im a 34D.... Any suggestions girls? Going to Dublin Sat so if any ideas would like to get it then! I have the new ultimate wonderbra strapless bra in nude colour, My dress is diamond white so if dress slipped I would be afraid you would see the nude colour. Should I just get a white one of these??

I think that wonderbra is amazing!!!!! Although I'm not sure if they actually do it in white - maybe give peaches and cream a shout and make an appt with them to look at bras, thye really know their stuff

Do you have to wear a bra? I'm quite busty on top and have probably never in my life not worn a bra but my dress is so secure with the boning etc in it it's completely unnecessary.... good luck anyway!

Any bra or corset I tried just gave me way too much cleavage so give yourself the option of going bra-less too. Bt's were great when I bought some - they allow you to return them if they know its for dress fitting.

I was thinking of going bra less, becuse i had ordinary bra on when first tried on dress with the straps shoved down the sides (so no support) and I thought it was fine. But then when picking up my dress she said I prob should as it will keep a good shape, so not sure what to do!!

No I wouldnt wear a bra and Im very large on top! Its like putting a bra over a bra IYKWIM! Its not like its a flimsy top if it has boning in it and Im sure it will be pulled tight I wouldnt bother but thats just me - some people get horiffied of the thoughts even though no one will know only you (unless you go around telling everyone!)

I like the support of a bra, even under my dress which is corset and boned, think it's partly psychological also for me :o0 I got a lightly wired bra from Ultimo which gives lovely shape and isn't evident under dress. I didn't like the wonderbra under it as it felt quite restrictive when both were on together and it gives oomph cleveage which I don't want on my wedding day. Another option is one of those strapless slips that act as a bra and a body slimmer at the same time.
