I'm on bridesmaid duty again, and my bff is eyeing up this dress.

I haven't owned a low-back bra since I was sixteen, but they must exist for us. I'm a 30G in Freya and a 30FF in Fantasie. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Thanks!

That dress is pretty!!

I'm not sure about low-backed bras, but have you ever tried a bra extender? Something like this:


I'm a 32 FF/G and they have worked for me. Obviously though, you'd have to check and see whether they'd pull the bra low enough.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'm in a sticky situation though, in that the dress is to be ordered online and so I won't get anywhere near it until it's been bought.

I didn't have to get a low back bra, but I was able to find a strapless, so it's got to be possible (i am a 30GG, so anything is possible). Took some trial and error, but finally found one.

we had to change my bridesmaid dress so it was different than everyone else's (same colour and same brand, just different style) so that my large boobs would fit properly. (it was mostly due to the low cut fronts of the other dress styles)

Good luck!

Thanks. I have a decent strapless, but low back seems to be a lot harder!

I don't have any personal recommendations, but I did find this Fantasie bustier/bra. It doesn't look like Freya has any backless or low back items, unfortunately. Fantasie also made a multiway bra that could go backless or low back, but it appears to be no longer made.

This site may be useful, particularly if you can figure out how to sort by cup size.

Typical A, B and C cups on that site. Ugh. I can't seem to find the Fantasie bustier currently available, but I will keep an eye out for it. Thanks for your help!

Not a clue on low-backed bras. My solution for one low-back dress recently was to take it to a tailor and have it cinched so firm around the ribcage that it basically functions as its own band. The dress was a halter style so I tied the halter very tight to get decent cuppage action. I've considered getting one of those backless bra dealies and seeing if it worked to add more stability, but haven't gotten around to it. So far that's worked OK for me and I'm a 30F in Freya/Fantasie.

I haven't tried this option myself but my sister likes the Ultimo line...


Looks like a bit of a contraption but hey maybe it would actually give some support that way!
