going undergarment-less

I picked up my dress from the seamstress today (yay!) and as I have posted before, I was very worried about 'overflow' from the dress. Earlier in the process, the seamstress suggested that I not use the crinoline, so we took that out and it allowed us to actually take the dress in at the waist. Well today, when I tried on the dress again, and still had issues with the (ugh) back fat (although it was considerable better with the back exercises I have been doing), we decided to try the dress without the bra...and wala! Very little overflow. So now I guess I will be going undergarment-less. I think the dress fits well enough to not have to worry about any "waredrobe malfunctions" (fingers crossed), but it still feels weird to think I'll be out in public without a bra on....

would you take the risk?

Re: going undergarment-less

  • I had the seamstress sew cups into my dress.  So much more comfortable than all of the formal dresses I have ever worn with a strapless bra.  As long as you are comfortable, and there is no chance of you "falling out" in front then do it!

  • You could always try double sided tape if you are afraid of a wardrobe malfunction.

  • I'm going bra-les but I'm also a size A when it comes to cup-size so nothing can really fall out. I also had cups put in my dress! I plan on using double sided tape as well as my dress is kind of big in the top and not worth taking in. I think if you are comfortable with it and feel secure you should be fine!

  • I'll be wearing a really simple strapless. I was going to wear one of those long bras that are supposed to pull you in and create that seamless look, but it just made me feel bigger. I'd go without a bra if I weren't completely flat! =)  I don't think it's weird at all...
  • I'm not small up top by any means and I'm going bra-less.  Well the seamstress put in cups and I got Spanx that go up to my high-waist to slim everything down but no traditional strapless bra or anything.  I guess I'm weird since I always have to wear a bra that I'm kind of happy to finally not have to wear one (per say).  
  • I am blessed on top, and will be going bra-less.  The bra that I bought for the dress gave me terrible back pain, so it was much better to go without.  It's a little weird, but since I've had a couple fittings, I've actually gotten used to it, so I think it will be good!

  • I'm like EDK in that I'm an A cup so nobody would ever notice if I did or didn't have on a bra. That being said, if it means cutting down on the back butt (also stolen from EDK LOL) then I will probably go without the bra and maybe wear it later for FH :)

    This is me too.  I have the shorts spankes that go up to just under my bra line.  I wasn't comfortable with a corset on underneath so we tired it w/o a bra and it was perfect!  The back of my dress is corset style so once I'm tied in the girls aren't going anywhere lol
