I'm looking for a strapless bra to wear under a bridesmaid dress but want one that will stay put. I'm a 34D and do need some padding for shape and quite a bit of lift since pregnancy.

Anyone got a good one they would recommend?

The wonderbra strapless bra cannot be beaten imo. Has weird little 'fingers' in the cups that hold you in place. It really does work.

I find la senza's strapless bra
the full support one to be the best!

I bought a Marks and Spencer multiway bra on Friday. It took me almost an hour of trying different ones on to make up my mind. I am a 34DD and really don't need extra padding but in the end the 34DD just didn't contain me and squashed me into a really odd shape. I bought a 34E shaped padded on which although it looks and makes me feel like I have got armour plating on is the one that holds me up best (I am at the age when gravity is taking hold but don't see why I should be excluded from wearing summery strappy numbers) and has the best shape under vest t-shirt tops. Have to say it is a physical struggle getting into it and I even did myself an injury getting my skin pinched in the hole of the strap hook.
I would say try lots of different ones on and take the dress with you when you try them on. Good luck

I bought the M&S multiway too. I found that I needed a DD rather than my usual D cup, but it has a plunge front which might be useful under a low cut dress.
