undergarment question

Did any of you ladies not wear a bra under your dress for whatever reason? Was it weird/uncomfortable not to have one on? Did any of you wear pasties or something of the sort because you could not wear a bra? I have kind of built in cups to my dress, but am unable to wear a bra and I am kind of scared that a wardrobe malfunction will happen....

    I'm a B-cup and the sewn in cups on the dress was all I wore. It worked well.

    I am going no bra, no cups in my dress.  It's a corset and the twins don't even move.  I would wear whatever you feel most comfortable with.  I originally thought I wanted cups but once I put it on and talked with the seamstress, I realized I didn't need them.

    What kind of dress is it?  If it fits properly, there should be no malfunctions. I won't be wearing a bra with mine and I'm still held in nice and snug.  And the fabric is thick enough that Pasties aren't needed (if I'm thinking of the right thing, that is).

    I won't be wearing a bra.  My dress has a great corset that keeps everything in its place.

    TiDa- my dress is really thick too, so I am not feeling the pasties. I am just a little worried because even though the dress fits snug I am worried one of the girls will some how find a way to pop out... lol. Am I just being paranoid?

    If you are worried that one of the girls might pop out, try dancing in it at your next fitting.  I busted out all of my craziest dance moves to make sure I wasn't flashing anyone.

    I'm doing the kind of strapless, long-line bra with lots of boning, so I don't need cups in my dress. I'm a D cup and it works amazingly well.

    As long as it's altered correctly, you should be fine. But no, you are not being paranoid.

    I'm wearing a longline bra under my gown. I'm a B-cup ... a rather small B-cup at that (I pretty much stopped growing when I was 12, haha). I tried my dress on without it and it looked good, but then I tried it on WITH it, and "Holy crap! My boobs look great!". Its not showing cleavage or anything, it just gave the girls some "oomph!".

    I didn't wear a bra. My dress had cups built in and I was fine. No malfunctions!
  • Options
    I'm wearing a bra/corset type of thing.  I'm a 36D, so wearing a bra is a must.
  • Options
    I'm a 36D and no bra is needed.  I really think it depends on the structure of your dress.

    I'm a 38DD and I can get away without wearing a bra.  My dress has a corset back and has straps, though, so I'm snot worried one bit. Ask your seamstress.  He/she will be able to tell you whether or not you should wear one and what kind to wear if you do need it.

    *I'm not worried...Please ignore the snot!

    I'm a B cup and had cups sewn into the dress.  They worked great!

    Actually TiDa makes a really good point. If you're having other alterations done, you really should ask the person doing them what they would reccommend. I know that VS used to put out a bra that was designed for backless dresses ... I never wore it, so I don't know if it helped at all, or even how it worked, but you might be able to find something like that.

Or would that look weird? Or would that just be not worth it to you? (I'm sure you'll be fine without - I'm putting straps on my strapless dress just because I like the look of them better on my body type.)

    I did wear a bra and probably didn't need to. My dress maker recommended it. I would have been more comfortable without it since the dress was snug and there was a corset in the dress. As long as your dress is fitted properly, you shouldn't have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction:)
  • Options
    It should be fine after alterations, but for added security use 'Hollywood Tape' to prevent the fabric from gaping or slipping. If you have a sewn in bra, I don't think you need pasties or petals, but ask the seamstress.

    Even though I had a corset dress, I still wore a bra.  I have a C/D cup kind of in the middle, and I felt like it supported me better.
