Sister getting married this summer
Wearing brocade dress with swing skirt
She is quite busty however and needs a Nice, not padded, white balcony bra for wedding that's not a fortune
She's 34e
Can anyone help!

She said dress is lowish cut, with straps. straps set closer to the arms than usual so wide neckline if that makes sense!
Bra needs to be balcony cut.
Thank you!

Dress a bit like the one on the right but without sleeves

I searched and searched as I'm a similar size (34dd) and couldn't find anything as particular as what I wanted. So in the end as I realised my dress was so heavily boned and structured I didn't need to bother with a bra. (This pleased my new husband (fiance still at the time) when I got to the end of the aisle and hugged him and whispered in his ear 'I've got no bra on in church!!' We had the giggles throughout the service grin)
I appreciate not everyone would feel comfortable going braless but I honestly never felt at risk of popping out as my dress had the structure to hold me up and give me a nice subtle cleavage.

Oh that's great thank you. Website looks amazing!
Problem is she's defo not one to go braless and anyway there's no hidden support in the dress to help sad
She's also low on funds ideally wants to spend under £50, could stretch to £75 max
Any more ideas? Eep!

for this neckline, has she considered half cup bras? I'm thinking that balconettes might be a little high cut.
this gives a lovely uplifted shape www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fantasie-Fauve-0271-Maya-U-W-Balcony-Half-Cup-Bra-Butterscotch-Black-White-/201552671793?var=500751506183&hash=item2eed79b431:m:m9suexSEVr1Ho0Sk0aOreuA

Try the Wonderbra Ultimate Strapless! I know strapless are a pain but I can't think of any with wide-set straps like that. I hate strapless bras and I'm a 40G so didn't expect this to work for my wedding day at all but it did. Most department stores stock it so it would easy to go and try it on
