    Swebs14:  I just had my seamstress sew one of my old bras into my dress. Much more supportive than just sewing cups in!

    Since I was not blessed with any assets up on top 🙂 I actually had cups sewn in (A-cups) AND I am still wearing a partial pushup bra. Just with the dress it gave it more shape, otherwise I looked like I had Nothing!

    I thought I would have to wear a bra (I’m a DD), but during alterations my seamstress said it would be better without a bra or sewn in cups. I was skeptical, but she was so right! My dress has a  corset and a zipper so everything is held in really well! I think it really depends on the dress (:

    Swebs14:  I wore nothing because all of the bras that fit me did not fit with the dress, and all of the bras that fit with the dress did not fit me. 

    I regret not just wearing a smaller bra and having some support, because I looked a bit unsupported on my wedding day and it really bothers me to see photos.

    I plan on wearing a bustier or corset under my dress to keep my E cups in check.

    I am fairly well endowed so I am wearing a strapless bra. There are so many gorgeous dresses out there which are backless or have a fancy lacy back, but I just wouldn’t have been comfortable with sewn in cups! It really depends on a) your body and b) your dress.

    As others said, it depends on the dress! My dress has soft cups built in and I’m a 32B. I’m going to wear bandaids, lol. I’ve done it before for a costume, it held up well and gave a bit of shape. I think you can buy sticker bras that are the same idea, but two crisscrossed bandaids worked for me!

    I’m a 34DD and I just had cups sewn into the dress.

    I had one of my own bras sewn into the dress.  Quite differnt than having those useless little bra cups (maybe not useless for ladies with smaller chests, but totally useless for me).

    I’m a girl who needs some serious support.  I’ve got a DD rack and unfortunately it’s not at all perky on it’s own.  

    My dress had straps, but they were sheer, so I couldn’t jsut wear a normal bra.  Therefore, I had one of my normal bras sewn right into the dress, then had the bra straps cut off.  Since it was attached to the dress, the dresses straps then provided support to the bra.  The substantial shape and underwire provided the lift and seperation I needed.  I have never been able to find a strapless bra (longline or otherwise) that worked for me so this was a good solution.

    I’m going to either have cups sewn in, or have one of my existing bras cut and sewn in. I’m kind of lacking in the boob department (36 B), and the bust of my dress doesn’t have much shape without adding some sort of bra/cups. I’d wear a strapless bra, but I’m worried it would slip down or my dress would shift and make it look weird.

    I had bought a long line bra but it was so uncomfortable and tough to get on! At my first fitting, my seamstress threw some cups in to see if I liked it and it was AMAZING! I have a corset back so I’m held in perfectly and I actually feel like I can move! I am a 36DD.

    I was thinking of just having cups sewn in. I’m only a 36 B but they are really saggy. I think I’ll be good with just some supportive cups. My dress is a corset so I won’t have issues with it staying put.

    It totally depends on the model of your dress. I have a pretty big bust, especially in comparison to the rest of me, and bought a strapless bra for my first fitting. Turned out I couldn’t get it on under the dress and the dress was so well boned I didn’t need anything. It was my first day without a bra since about 1995 and I didn’t even notice.
