i have to wear a bra as i'm a 32f. there are lots of different ways for the dress, many have an open back or a crossover which i'm worried about, please help!

I have one of these and I'm the same size as you!! It's a pain finding bras isn't it?! It is pretty good but I found the cup size too big on the f. Def worth trying it.

Yup, that's exactly what you need. Unless you want to go for an old school long-line job, but they preclude the wearing of full on up-to-the-norks control pants.

Just insist on wearing the dress in one of the styles that'll cover the bra.

Christabel - i hate being big boobed! does it hold you up well?
are there any other good bras which crossover at the back. the bride is good & she knows i will need to wear a bra smile

The ultimate strapless is very very good. It can actually sit quite low at the back too.

I would say to try on a few sizes with it - don't assume your normal bra size is correct. I normally wear a 30H/HH and have the ultimate in a 32G, and it actually fits really well. It doesn't feel as tight as a normal bra, but because of the design it doesn't matter. The lack of underwires takes a while to get used to but it definitely keeps me where I belong.

Yep, I'm a 32f and I have worn mine on many occasions (including jumping and dancing all night once) and I love it. It stayed put and needed no readjustment at all, and it made my boobs look quite nice, not at all droopy (which I've had happen with other strapless bras).

Do go and try it on though as I've found that it can been seen with certain lower cut dresses.

It might just work with styles 1,5 & 7, but not with the other styles. The problem with those dresses is almost all the ways of wearing them are very revealing at the sides which makes wearing any kind of bra impossible. If it's the shorter dress the bride has chosen one possible solution is to buy one full length dress, have it shortened to match the others and use the leftover fabric to make a matching boobtube for extra coverage.
