I meet for alterations in a couple of weeks and am debating on whether or not i just even bother with sewing in cups– i’m a 32 b (on a good day)
I’m an end of july wedding in michigan so wearing a bra is out of the question– i’d be a sticky hot mess!
anyone have input? i’d love to be able to accentuate what little bit that i have but idk if sewn in cups are going to really make a difference.

I think I’ll probably have sewn in cups. I’ve heard that it’s easier to hoik yourself up and make them look a bit bigger with cups, even if they aren’t very padded. Not sure if that helps at all!

totally! I always got them for prom and will def. have them in my wedding dress! Usually they just lightly stich them in, and they usually go 1-2 sizes bigger. Like wearing a bombshell bra from VS. Not to much, but fill in your shape!

I’m like you, not blessed up-top
I plan to have cups AND padding sewn into my dress. I wear nice, padded Vic Secret bras every day, it gives me a little more up-top.. so if I showed up at my wedding more flat chested than usual, it might be weird.. and I’d probably feel self-conscience. I think adding cups is a great idea!

i’m roughly a 36B, but i have a ton of room in my dress. so they’re going to take it in a little bit then add the cups

I’m right about your size, and my dress had cups already included. They seem a little bigger than I want (I never wear super-padded bras, just enough padding for a “smooth line”), but Mom said it looked natural, so I’m okay with that.
Since I’ll be bra-less, I’m getting double-sided tape, just so there are no surprises/cleavage stays under control.

GET THEM!!! I am small up top, as well, and I knew I’d need help one way or another. I was going to wear one of those sticky bras but was told it’s better to do the cups, so that’s what I did. I got the biggest ones she had and I thought they’d be too big but they looked great. I mean, most dresses aren’t made to show off cleavage, it’s just to balance it all out. I didn’t have any problems with them, and I totally recommend using them!!

I definitely plan on getting cups sewn in. I’m even smaller than you on top 🙁

I am getting the lightest, thinnest cups sewn in for support–a bra is just not going to work in my strapless, open backed dress. I’m a 36 B and need a little bit of support to make it through the day so I have to have some cups. However, I am totally not going to try to look bigger. I love my itty titties–if I showed up for my wedding with big ol tatas–everyone would know that they were not real. I always cringe at the photos of women who are thin and don’t have large breasts who have a strapless dress that fakes it. I know that there is nothing in those bra cups and it looks silly. We all look so much better if we’re comfortable and look like we normally look.
Small breasts are not unattractive. Doing things to make your small breasts bigger is silly–everyone knows what you’re doing and you don’t look better anyway. Leave your mammaries alone and rock it.

I had cups sewn in. It was great. I didn’t have to worry about a strapless or being able to hold the dress up. My seamstress fit the dress to me and it was great!

I had cups sewn in.. so much easier in my opinion. You just don’t have to worry about it.

thank you ladies! i am only having one fitting (EEK!) due to an out of state move and having the wedding back at home. Since we’re maxing all of our time off for the honeymoon i dont have any leave to head back home (8 hours away) for a fitting.
Lets hope the cups go in properly! I’ll double check with the seamstress to make sure that she’s comfortable sewing them with no time to fix them!
