Dress is white lace, strapless with slight sweetheart neckline. I wear a 32E bra usually - can anyone recommend the best one for staying put all day and not slipping down? And do I want a nude or white bra?

Also any recs for spanx type pants appreciated! Dress is v tight around hips so want to be as smooth as possible smile

The Wonderbra strapless bra is amazing and what I wore. My dress wasn't strapless but was sheer on the shoulders.

I'm a 34G so usually strapless are terrible on me but this is awesome and so comfortable.

Wonderbra - go try it on though if possible, it's very tight and people often find they need to go up a back size.

If your dress is even a little see-through, you would want nude. They also have this nude-white-lace option that could work

Another vote for wonderbra with hand cups. Used one for my wedding dress (34ff) and it was brilliant.

Strapless bras only stay up properly if they are fitting you properly - so I would go to somewhere like Bravissimo for a formal proper fitting with a trained fitter.

The other thing is that they will need to be reasonably snug to the rib cage - so make sure if you are dieting you get fitted for and buy a bra reasonably close to the wedding as even a few pounds can make a fit difference.
