Strapless bras are also an option. For ladies with a bigger bust, you should definitely purchase a comfortable strapless bra for the support you need.

MERMAID/TRUMPET STYLE DRESSES

Since it’s tight fitting at the top, you want to ensure that there are no panty lines showing. If you’re worried about your extra belly weight bulging out, you can purchase a bodysuit or Spanx to appear slimmer. Just make sure that your bodysuit ends where your dress starts to flair out or else you’ll be showing panty lines.

Comfort is key!
Remember, you’ll be posing, greeting guests, dancing, and walking around with your quinceanera dress. You don’t want to be worrying about your straps appearing in every shot, your strapless bra sliding down, or visible panty lines. The best thing you can do is test out all undergarments for a full day prior to your quinceanera (jump around, walk around, and take a few pics). You know you’ve chosen the right undergarment if everything is in place and you’re comfortable by the end of the day.
