Need help with a bra - STAT

I need help with a bra for my wedding dress. I have a gift card from Amazon, so I want to order from there. It is "free" that way.

I need a strapless, backless bra. The dress fits pretty tight in the bodice, so even though I am a D cup, I am not sagging much. I just need a little push, but all the bras I am seeing don't have the best reviews if you are well endowed.

Do any of you have personal experience with these types of bras?

Here is the dress: - shorten that long URL into a tiny URL

Here are a couple of bras I am looking at, but I am open to any suggestions. - shorten that long URL into a tiny URL (underwire) - shorten that long URL into a tiny URL

I would wear a longline strapless bra with that dress. Those silicone bralette thingies don't work with larger cup sizes.

Thanks! I'll give one a try. The bodice is a tight enough fit that you can see my long-line Spanx that end under my breasts, so I am afraid that the long-line bra will also be visible. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for the input!

I wore a longline bra with my wedding dress but my dress was more structured at the top.

Have you considered having cups sewn into the top of the dress?
When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

The seamstress didn't think sewn in cups would do the trick.

I ordered a long line bra and a stick on bra from Fredericks of Hollywood. Hopefully one of them will work. =)

I think you'll ultimately save time if you first try on bras IRL. There are so many differences in the ways bras fit, and you never know what will be uncomfortable. A lot of bras don't fit true to size. Then you can buy the one you want from Amazon.

Her Room has a detailed series of questions to help you figure out what bra features will best suit you and your boobs. It's really helpful. Also, double check if you're wearing the right size.

I do agree that trying on bras in person, and WITH the dress on, is necessary. Especially with that dress, which is going to require a deep plunge as well as a low-back.
