I’m also a C-D, and I had cups sewn in. That, and the fact that I had straps added to my dress, meant that I was perfectly secure.

hl17burc: They pinned the cups in before they added the straps, and I feel like it was definitely enough support! I didn’t have a corset back either, but because the dress was fitted so well (and tight, hahah) it basically held itself up. Remember, strapless dresses are made to stay up on their own; that’s what the seamstress explained to me about adding straps.

I’m a DDD and I just had cups sewn in. I had a lot of trouble finding a low back, strapless long line bra in my size so I just gave up on trying to find one. My dresses were tight enough in the bodices that I had enough support with the cups.

hl17burc:  I had a dress that was sheer on top and on the back, and with D tata’s, I needed more support than cups could give. Granted I’ve gone up and down in weight, and feel like the girls just need more support than other people may need. Anyway, I didn’t want to be uncomfortable with a lot of boning, so I ended up with a strapless low back corset that only had one line of boning on each side. The torso of the corset was mesh so very breathable and  comfortable. It was just enough support to hold me together without feeling like I was sucked in. If you’ve got perky enough girls the best thing would probably be sewn in cups, but if you’d like more support, I would try a lightweight corset.

hl17burc:  i am a C cup with a breast reduction. but i a 32F for my first 27 years, so i still think in terms of big busted girls. 

i didn’t want a strapless wedding dress but ended up falling in love with one.  i had cups sewn in and that was enough support.  the dress itself had so much boning and stucture to it that it was very supportive.  i think most wedding dresses have that boning in the torso.

but if you are a C/D and your dress is altered to fit you perfectly, then i think you will be fine with just getting cups sewn in.

I’m a D and I had cups sewn in –  I always have trouble with strapless bras – they never work! my  dress had some of its own boning and with the cups it was perfect – I don’t think I’ve had a sports bra with as much support as I had on my wedding day.
