Strapless and D Cups???

Any other D cups out there considering a strapless dress? I usually avoid these styles because I need the lift and don't want to be fussing with the dress all day. Nothing looks worse that constantly hitching up a dress!

    I'm a D cup and I wear a street size 6, so most of the sample dresses fit me quite well.  I tried on a few strapless dresses and I found that most of the bodices were very stiff with hidden boning (not necessarily visible from the outside).  I didn't end up choosing a strapless dress, but I felt that the girls were pretty secure in there and the dress wasn't going anywhere.

    I'm a D and in normal dresses I'm not a fan of strapless, but wedding dresses were a lot more stiff and had boning so I didn't see any problems.

    I'm a D and I'm doing strapless. I really didn't think it was possible but once I started trying them on I knew that I was perfectly supported. Give it a try!

    I'm a DD cup and I bought a strapless dress. The dress is supportive and the addition of a good longline bra makes it totally fine.

    I'm a D-cup and my strapless dress keeps the girls in place with or without a bra! Still trying to decide whether I want to find a bra to wear under it or just have cups sewn in. I think most well-made wedding gowns have all sorts of helpful infrastructure. Combine that with whatever bra option you're most comfortable with and good alterations so the dress fits well and isn't slipping down, and you're good to go.

    My daughter is a DD and was worried about this as well.  Sewing the cups directly into the dress made a big difference.  A corset, laced bodice also helped as she could tighten the back to make her feel a bit more "tucked in".

    <div>Me too, and I didn't even need a longline bra, just a regular strapless bra and I found the bra at Wal-Mart for less than $15.</div>

    I'm a DD and I got a strapless. It's very supportive, but it helps that I have the longline strapless bra with the extra boning.

    I'm a DD, and ended up choosing a strapless dress. I was suprised at how structured & supportive it was, no hitching at all, even before the fitting is tweaked. I'll be getting cups sewn in as well, the seamstress I spoke with said that's good for staying...uplifted.

    I'm a DD and my dress has a corset back with sweetheart neckline. No straps needed. I'm going to have the cups sewn in so I don't have to add any bulk with bra. This will likely be the only dress in my whole life I get to wear without a bra.

    I originally didn't consider strapless for the opposite reason (I'm an A cup) but that's what ended up fitting me well and I think it can work for anyone if it's fitted properly and you wear the right undergarments or have the cups sewn in.  If you haven't tried on many dresses, it's worth trying on different necklines to see what looks good on you because you might be surprised what you end up loving once you're wearing it.

    Whoever said it was supposed to be happily ever after is a big fat liar.

    I'm a D-cup and wore a strapless dress with a longline bra. I didn't have any issues during the 10 hours I had my dress on, everything stayed in place just fine.

    Hello, I'm a 34 G cup size and I was wondering if you knew were I could find a longline bra to wear with my gown. Since I'm such a weird size, I have difficulty finding regular bras. :)

    <div>Try this one: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.amazon.com/Goddess-Womens-Lace-Bustier-White/dp/B00127WRCY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326738335&sr=8-1">http://www.amazon.com/Goddess-Womens-Lace-Bustier-White/dp/B00127WRCY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326738335&sr=8-1</a></div><div>
    </div><div>And before ruling it out since G cups aren't listed in the sizing chart, read the reviews of how it fits. I am usually a 38DD, and I ordered a 42C and it fit perfectly, so even if G cups aren't an option, maybe a "smaller" cup size will work for you. </div>

    I'm a D and mine is a corset back srapless gown.  I just had them sew some cups in the dress so I didnt have to worry about a bra. I didnt want to be adjusting it all night! They also took the top in just a bit to secure my ladies a bit more. All in all it was fine.  Cost about $100 in alterations.
