I just went through this lol. I like the first one ... you would be able to find a wrap to go over it! I bought 2 wraps at David's bridal last Friday-one for me and one for DD to wear over her wedding gown when she leaves the church to go to the reception. Good luck and have fun!

If you go to the lingerie dept of a department store, the salespeople there will be able to help you find a bra that will work under the dress. A strapless bra will work under the first dress, and a regular bra may be ok under the second, depending on what the back looks like.

Silly question, but uhmm. How do people wear bras with these kinds of dresses? D:
Strapless bra or convertible are amazing for these kind of dresses. Convertible bras allow you to adjust the straps all sorts of ways to accommodate your dress. If you are going to get a dress with straps I would get a convertible bra. I just prefer to have straps over feeling like my bra is slipping all night Just make sure you get one the really fits well. My SIL would go bra less but she is not well endowed at all.

I've never wore a strapless bra. o.o Are they comfortable?

On the third dress, I forgot. Someone told me I should wear a colour no where near white. Because...the bride is wearing white.

They can be, and they can't be. Go to a department store, and try some on, and if you have your dress, bring it with, try it on with the dress, and see what feels most comfortable to you!

I had to buy a super special bra for my prom dress, because it had spaghetti straps, and a low back with laces across the back.

So I had to get something that went around my waist below the dress back (I think I safety-pinned it to the back of the dress to be sure it wouldn't move) that came all the way up my torso. I just had a regular strapless bra for my junior prom dress, because it had a regular back with spaghetti straps.

My personal experience if you have an excess in the boobage area they really don't work well at all. Strapless bras work well up to a certian cup size, then after that, they really aren't that good.

Depends on how boobalicious you are. I would sugest going to a store that specializes in bras, not a department store if you are a size D or larger. I wore a strapless to my Junior Prom (a while ago ), I was smaller then. But I went to a store specifically for that, and I'm glad I did.

If you have a Nordstrom near you, they have professional bra fitters there. I love the last dress you posted, but I was going to mention the color thing- it's considered rude to wear white since it "detracts" from the bride. I love the 2nd dress on your first post, too!
