    I know this is a common question...but what are you wearing under your DW dress?  Mine (below) plunges in BOTH the front and back.  I want to be supported (D cup) and comfortable...and for nothing embarrassing to show.  I thought that a strapless bra would work, but it shows quite a bit, unfortunately.  I don't think that sewn in bra cups will work for support reasons.  Thank you.

      I would wear nude boyshort-type undies.  As for a bra, I'm not sure.

        I purchased a similar dress but strapless and you could see every single line, dimple, etc through this fabric.  I am not wearing it as it would be too much to try to conseal.  I was also worried about not wearing undies and sweating in the Jamaica heat.  Not a comfy situation to have your dress sticking to you.  I know they make bridal spanx in different designs so check with a good bridal shop on this.

          I would suggest a nude colored v-string for the bottom and talking with a good seamless about sewing in cups.

          That's always such a tricky detail. I would suggest looking for seamless underwear, not sure where you live, but in Canada La Senza sells them. That should avoid the underwear lines. As for the bra top, I have seen something that almost looks like a corset (but it's a bra). Strapless, but is cut super low on the back, and designed for dresses like these. If you need support, I would look for one of these. Unfortunately I don't know what they are called.

          Also maybe:



          Good luck.

            A big-boobed friend had a really low backed wedding dress so she used those sticky things.  They stick below the nipple then you pull and stick the top part above.  It works but looks weird if you're naked...she ended up taking them off for the reception.
