I am getting my wedding dress altered now and the seamstress told me to go buy “bust forms” which I believe are just bra cups that she can sew into the dress. She said go to a bridal shop and they will have them…but that sounds like the most expensive way to do it to me.
Has anyone bought bra cups online or in another store for a good price? Any brands or shops to recommend? I am an A-cup now, but getting a good cup with padding to make me a B at least wouldn’t hurt my feelings 🙂

Bra cups were only $15 at the bridal boutique I got mine from – so I imagine at David’s Bridal or another big-name bridal store will have them for about the same or less. I don’t consider that expensive. 🙂

You can find them in any shop selling fabrics, sewing materials and accessories.

leprechaura: yep- they should have them at places like Jo-anns. I would pickup a range of sizes though- one you think is perfect, one bigger then you think you need & one smaller. I bought mine form the seamstress at the bridal shop, but my standard size didn’t work quirte right and we had to do some experimenting to see which fit my bust & the dress the best..
I think jo-ann’s has a pretty good return policy also so you don’t have to keep them if they don’t work…

A friend told me that she brought a favorite bra to her seamstress and had the cups sewn into her dress. It worked perfectly because she knew the cups would fit her perfectly.
Obviously, not all seamstresses offer that as an option, and not everyone can afford to have a perfectly good bra destroyed for their dress, but I thought it was a cool idea.

leprechaura: Definately go in there with more than one option and different sizes too. The selection they had at my bridal salon was sad and pathetic. I have my second fitting on Thursday and I’m going back fully loaded with these babies. One of these better work or I’m really screwed. Lol.
