    Hello everyone!

    Just a quick question,
    What color strapless bra should I wear under my white wedding dress? I thought white, but someone mentioned to me that you should wear a color that best matches your skin tone. I plan on tanning before my DW, just to bronze up a bit, does this mean i should go with a "buff" or "beige" color? Or would silicone "shapers" be a better idea?
    I'm so clueless when it comes to this kind of stuff!
    Help please?

        I also say match your skin tone but I am not wearing a bra. The back of my dress is somewhat low and I hate when my bra shows in the back so I am wearing these instead Victoria's Secret - Adhesive push-ups

        Not sure if they will work but I don't have too much anyway!

          So I will get a "nude" color bra.
          Thank you!

            Yup - the "nude" beige colors work perfectly. If you wear white it may be noticeable under your dress since it's so much lighter than your skin. This goes for not just wedding dresses but all white shirts!

              Agreed, wear a color closer to your skin tone

              I go for a taupe color - the "nude" is still a little visible for me, and I'm prett pale.

                Definitely in agreement with the others -- match your skin tone with a 'nude' or 'beige' color.

                  I bought adhesives at walmart called "shantini lite'. They were $16. I am surprised how good they are. They don't lift, but they do pull them together. I think they work best for small Cs or smaller.

                    I would love to get the "shapers" but after breast feeding my son(many moons ago) I have lost alot of shape and firmness( sorry if thats too much info). I am a 34b and im worried that the shapers wont be able to lift me up and still maintain a natural form. Does this make sense? Should I just stick with a padded<blush> strapless bra?
