@mmm_jacklyn:  any sticky bras I’ve used have worked more than once! I don’t think bringing earrings would be weird at all! Bring your shoes to if you have them!

Bringing shoes is a good thing since they can measure from your hollow to the hem. At least, that’s what they did for me.

@mmm_jacklyn:  Many bridal stores also carry lingerie (not in the sexy sense, but in the practical to wear with your dress kind) and can help you find something that will work with your dress other than the stickies. Those don’t work for me, but I have a low back bustier that is perfect for my dress that they are going to build in snaps to connect my dress to the bra…

@mmm_jacklyn:  I’ve never worn a sticky bra before and due to my bust size never would find it to be particularly helpful!  I couldn’t find a good bra to wear with my low/open back dress so i had cups sewn in. Even being bustier, this worked great. Is having cups or a bra sewn directly into the dress an option for you? I ask this just because from what I hear abut the sticky bras, they can be a pain in the butt to get off at the end of the night, and that never struck me as something I wanted to deal with on my wedding night!  Just a thought. Or perhaps other ladies who have used the sticky bra have insight as to whether or not they are annoying at the end of the night 😉

Shoes for sure & a petticoat if you need one. It makes a huge difference to the hem line.

@mmm_jacklyn:  haha. I understand your concern. I am also 36D and having the cups sewn in worked GREAT. My top is a corset, so that helps. I would bring the sticky bra but also ask the seamstress what they suggest. My take on it was that one less thing to fuss with on my wedding day was a plus.

@mmm_jacklyn:  I have no idea what kind of dress you have, but my bustier is smooth satin and has a really low back (my dress has a sheer back so that was critical). The bridal store can usually advise what will work best. I have a larger chest too (C cup, though, so not as big) and the stickies give me no support whatsoever, so I really encourage you to explore what’s out there.
