My suggestion was going to be to add cups. All I can suggest is that if you are not comfortable with your seamstress, find a new one! Maybe if you get a second opinion on the cups, you will find someone who can do them and make them work.

My wedding is in 10 days and my dress has just started getting altered for a second time by a new seamstress because my first one didn’t know what they were doing! Definitely find someone who you are comfortable with.

You have lots of time still. Talk to some other seamstresses, and get some more opinions 🙂

Your dress is beautiful. There must be a way they can help you out!

Let us know how it turns out! I’m looking at backless dresses myself and I would love to hear about the rest of your experience :]

I bought the super boost backless strapless bra from lingerie solutions. It’s a fabric push up bra at the front and has sticky silicone straps on the side. I have a similar dress to yours, but I haven’t tried the bra with my dress yet. The bra is super padded tho, really adds volume to my 32C/34B boobs that tend to look flat without a proper bra. I also bought a backless strapless push up bra that is similar from maiden form. The maiden form bra doesn’t have as much padding as the lingerie solutions one tho.

The seamstress was right – the sewn in cups don’t do ANYTHING for cleavage – all they do is keep a tightly fitted dress from flattening out the boobies.  Victorias’s Secret has a “Ultra Push Up” silicone sticky thing that also adheres to your sides, so you can actually pull up the girls a bit instead of them just hanging on. The only drawback is that its 68 bucks. For me, it was worth it though 🙂

What about those wrap around bras? Low back.

That bra looks amazing! If the two I bought don’t work out I’m getting that one instead!

I bought that SAME dress for my wedding in September! I remember going through the same thing you did about the bra situation. I ended up buying a similar bra that you did but there are adhesive straps on the sides that are holding the girls up. My seamstress actually sewed the bra into the satin layer of the dress so I wouldn’t have to solely depend on the adhesive straps and hopefully that will work better. I haev my final fitting this friday so we shall see!

 

Good luck with everything!
