Wedding Day Bra Basics, Tips and Tricks

You'll spend hours browsing images and trying on gowns looking for the perfect wedding dress. And once you find the dress of your dreams, you'll need a little support to look your best. I'm not talking about support from your bridesmaids, makeup artist or Pilates instructor. Instead, let's get intimate and talk wedding day bra basics! Adhesive Bra- a strapless, backless bra that adheres directly to the bust. Wear with: A backless wedding dress or strapless dress that dips down low (cowl, scoop, v-shape) in back. Best for: Brides with smaller chests as this bra provides minimal support. Tip: Secure the adhesive bra before applying lotion, body oil, etc. Otherwise it’ll be around your waist in no time! Try: Gather-The-Girls adhesive bra Convertible Bra- a strapless bra with detachable straps, transforms to work with a variety of wedding dress necklines. Wear with: Asymmetric (one-shoulder) or halter neckline bridal gowns; dresses that criss-cross in back or feature a t-shaped racer back. Best for: Most brides, but especially great if you’re changing into a second dress for your wedding reception! Tip: Find a convertible bra that comes with clear bra straps to maximize your purchase. Try: Felina Women's (voted Bra Of The Year) Convertible Strapless Deep Plunge Bra Conventional Bra- a traditional bra with straps. Wear with: Any wedding dress that has straps; scoop neck, v-neck, cap sleeves, and long sleeved wedding dresses. Best for: Well-endowed brides, as a conventional bra provides ample support. But brides of all shapes and sizes can wear this bra if they’re sporting a strapped wedding dress. Tip: This tip should be applied across the board. Try: Maidenform Women's Feeling Sexy Ultimate Gel Push Up Bra Longline Bra- a supportive bra (similar to a corset) that helps smooth and slim the tummy, strapless or with straps. Wear with: Wedding dresses that are less forgiving on the midsection; sleek column gowns, wedding dresses in light or clingy fabrics (silk, satin, jersey, etc). Best for: Brides who want extra support and shaping beneath their gowns. Keep in mind- longline bras can cut into the body, so heavier brides should avoid this type. Tip: If your wedding dress is white or ivory, choose a longline bra that closely matches your natural skin tone. Try: Maidenform Women's Custom Lift Strapless Longline With Convertible Straps Strapless Bra- a traditional bra without straps, available in a variety of necklines. Wear with: A strapless, sweetheart, bateau, or off-the-shoulder wedding dress; also great with spaghetti strap wedding dresses. Best for: Most brides, except for the super busty. Tip: If you’re larger than a size 40D, a strapless bra will not give you the support you need. Try: Calvin Klein Women's Perfectly Fit Strapless Push Up Bra If you dare to go totally bare under your wedding dress (which we only recommend for smaller-chested brides), the silicon gel petals in photo 3 are a must-have. And if you've selected a halter wedding dress, try Dr. Rey's new Shapewear Plunge Halter Bra. Did this post give you the support you were looking for?
