Hey y’all! So I do construction for a living and I love my sports bras. I need to get a real bra for my wedding dress and have absolutely no idea where to start. I am a size 12 so I’m looking for something along the lines of shape wear, corset or bustier etc. I could really use your suggestions for brands you love as well as brands to stay away from! Thanks in advance 💕
This is kind of what I’m leaning towards as far as style:
Anytime you go strapless, there's a real possibility it will minimize you. I'd go try some styles on and see what look you like. I have decided to have my bra built into my dress so I don't have to wear anything separate - I don't want my DD's minimized in any way.

That dress is gorgeous!! I would still go strapless because of the sheer lace. I definitely suggest trying some on. You at least don’t have to worry with a low back. This is the one I’m wearing, but it’s specifically for a low back dress. The one benefit to this one for any dress is that it’s only 3 hooks. It smooths things out, but is not shapewear in the means of squeezing stuff in.
One thing to watch for no matter what you choose are lines. I’m wearing a slip as well and make sure the slip & corset meet or I can see it. Now my mom says she never would’ve noticed if I hadn’t pointed it out, but once I see something I can’t unsee it.
I don't know if it will show in the back of your dress, but I buy all my bras from AdoreMe! They have lots of inclusive sizing, tons of styles and super sexy lingerie too. It is essentially a type of subscription service where you get 1 set a month, but you can skip the month any time you want with no charge. Their app is super easy to use too! As far as I've seen they don't carry shapeware but i could be wrong. Good luck!
