Strapless or not

I would like to wear a strapless dress but I’m scared but my boobs are to big and will flip out! When I do wear strapless clothes it falls and I’m on the verge of a nip slip Strapless or not 1

    Most strapless wedding gowns are going to have a ton of built in "structure" and will be very carefully altered to fit you, so it's going to fit much differently than the dress you're wearing in your photo (which is super cute, but doesn't look like it has any structure). Try on lots of different dresses and you'll find one that's perfect! Smiley heart

    I had the exact same fear too! I am an F/G cup (I believe DDD in America) and I went wedding dress shopping with a corset and 3 types of bras expecting to not be able to wear a dress easily let alone one that is strapless.

    Most dresses have inbuilt cups, and some will have additional boning for support. I ended up ordering a strapless gown (which I tried with no bra) but I'm going to have extra boning put into the bodice for more support as well as some little lace half off the shoulder straps (I prefer the look anyway) so you might be surprised at what you can get!

    I'm doing strapless and braless with DD boobs. I did have a lift almost 2 years ago, so kind of have my own built in bra 😉

    Honey I'm a 38 double d and I'm wearing strapless. What I would suggest that if you are worried about popping out is to wear a corset. Not only will it add nice shape to your torso but it will definitely keep the girls in. May not be the most comfortable but it'll definitely keep you secure.

    I had straps added bc probably nothing will happen but that’s the last thing I wanted to worry about on an already stressful day

    Get a built-in corset! I wish I had known about this before my wedding lol. I had a strapless dress with the opposite problem (boobs are too small lol) and it was falling down all day 😫 the night of our wedding when I was complaining about it my husband’s friend’s wife told me she had a built-in corset to her strapless dress and she was laced in there so tight it didn’t move AT ALL

    I had the same concern as you. I wasn’t planning on wearing strapless, but my bodice is very structured and sits on my waist and the boning holds it up and everything in.

    I have a large chest and tried on a couple of strapless dresses, they felt very secure!
