My search is finally over! I found the one, had the "moment", bought the dress and now need to find a way to support the "girls"! My dress is the Allure 8800 which has a deep v neck front and an open back. I was thinking built in support is The only way to go. If anyone else is going through, or went through this dilemma please let me know what you did And how it turned out!
My dress was the Allure 8800, and I wore a pair of stick on breast petals on my wedding day. Therefore, no bra or sewn in cups were necessary. I highly recommend them ($15 and you can wear them multiple times).
Beautiful dress! I wore a v-back dress but not as low as yours, so I'm not sure if this will work for you, but I wore a low-back strapless bustier. My seamstress said that was my only option for my dress; she said I couldn't do sewn-in cups, maybe because my dress didn't have a lot of internal structure. And I'm too busty to be comfortable with stick-ons.
I mean something that looks like this - don't know if that would be low enough for your dress.
Do you actually "need" a bra? I am 48 years old and my boobies are still perky enough to not wear a bra with my wedding dress. (I am not bragging, just that maybe you may not really need one)
@Obx1008: Thank you! I never thought about petals, if I had enough to fill in the dress that might work, I think I need a little magic like a push up :)
@Eglantine: Gorgeous dress!!! love your hair! very romantic! The back of the bustier would have to be very low. If you take a look at the pic there is a lot of sheer going on. here did you get yours?
@happyface: I wish was was as fortunate, mine are small but perky still, I need a little cleavage creation ill post a pic of the front so you can see what I'm talking about.
Yeah, I guess with that neckline you will need a little "help" hee hee! A little cleavage will enhance the look, I agree!
@happyface: agreed! I have a backless chicken cutlet bra I've worn many times, I wonder:) It's funny, I tried on this dress and my mom asked the lady to bring me boob inserts! I guess it was obvious I need a little something extra:)
does it has a built in bra, if not you can try those nude cup thing that you just stick on your skin (dont know what they called)
@quelee: Thanks! The dress doesn't have a built in bra but I'm hoping my seamstress can put a push up in! Im gonna need it:)
My dress silhouette was similar to yours, and I think you might be able to go bra-less, I did. I used double-sided tape, just in case, and there were cups already sewn in, so no "nipple issues".
You could just get cups sewn in. It should be between $20-$50 to do so and then you won't have to worry!
@rebwana: I want to go bra-less I think it's my only option. Ladies, thanks for the advice When my dress arrives I'm bringing it to the seamstress and hopefully she'll be able to give me a "lift". I hope it's that cheap!
Try one of the stick-on bras- you should be able to get one pretty cheap. I bought one, completely not thinking it would work, but wanting some kind of cover to go with sewn in cups. I'm about a B, and need some lift-help, but because you stick them on and clasp them together, the cleavage is actually really good! That's what I'm going to be doing, for me it's much better than the sewn-in cups, I'm going to be taking them out.
I really think it's worth a try, I was very impressed.
Try a Nubra. It clips in the front and adds a cup size. Warning it feels very odd at first like no bra but odd. I use this with a variety of dresses.
@CanberraGal: where can I get one? And does it stay up? I wouldn't want an accident! embarrassing!! Lol
@dewingedpixie: Nordstrom has the Nubra for $50 iI may wear this multiple times! Thanks!
@Birdi: It'll stay up - it's sticky all over so I really can't see it coming off, and it didn't hurt to take off. I bought mine from Target for $20 (in Australia, but I'm sure it's the same elsewhere), but I've seen them for $10 too, similar to a Nubra without the brand.
This works pretty well!! I wore this at a wedding last weekend and I was jumping around and dancing and sweating and it stayed PUT! You clean it and wear it again! Its awesome! I plan on using it for my wedding day as well!
Im also a size 34D so my boobs are not small. I was so impressed. I really thought it wouldnt work but it was my last resort! The wedding was the day after I bought this bra!
Also, because of the closure in the front It can create cleavage for you! Its genius! Just position the bra a bit more towards your arm pits and then close it up in the front!
@Lepidoptera: Yes!!!!! Just what I'm looking for!!! Thanks for the advice! Is your dress strapless ?
@CanberraGal: Thank you sooo much !! I'm gonna try it! Wedding is not till June so I have time to test it out! excited!!!!
@Birdi: Yes it is! :O) Its low in the back at well, its not showing well in this picture because of how she clipped the dress.
I just want to say thanks to all of you for your help!!! So sweet of each of you to take the time to post!!! I really appreciate it! Xoxo bees!
@Lepidoptera:Love the dress!! beautiful!! OMG! I just noticed your profile pic, We are ring twins!!!
@Birdi: Lol are we?!?!?! I see a big rock on your finger in your profile picture!!! Post a bigger picture on this thread!!
@Lepidoptera: sorry for the big pic:)
@Birdi: GORGEOUS!!!!! Your finger size is much smaller than mine! Im 6.5 but I have two sizing balls in the inside so when I get pregnant I can remove them and still be able to wear it! How big is your center stone?
@Birdi: Im only saying your finger size is smaller because my finger is wider and I see a lot more detail of the side of the ring when I look at it straight on like that!
@Lepidoptera: Sizing balls are a great idea! Your ring is gorgeous!! I think ours are a little different. Yours Have to be Tacori! My fiancé Custom made my set.to resemble the infinity symbol. My e ring has a 2ct and some change :) center stone with a .85ct diamond eternity band set in platinum. My wedding band matches with a little over 1ct. I really love it! I'll scrounge around my iPad and see if I have a more detailed pic Of the sides. show me more of your ring bling pics!!
@Lepidoptera: found Two!
@Birdi: You had that custom made?!?!?! It looks just like the tacori band's!!!!
I've taken several on my phone! I have to email them to myself and then attach to here!! I will in a few, promise!!!!!
Mine is Tacori all set in platinum, yep!
@Birdi: ok, I think there is something up with the website! I literally just sent myself a million pictures and now this happens! Awesome! The last picture is my main picture, I already had that one in the gallery!
@Birdi: 2 Carat is like the ultimate size I feel like! You're one lucky chicky! My fiance had spent about 19,000 on both rings and his max was 15,000 in the beginning. 2 carat diamond alone is like 25,000! lol! He must do very well for himself! Good for you!!!!
@Birdi: I keep getting this message!
You can wear this and it only costs $11.99
@Lepidoptera: Wow! Thanks for sending the pic , your ring is so sparkly! your fiancé did good!! I have no idea what mine cost he won't say! LOL My only requirement was that it should be sparkly And it definitively does sparkle and shine so he did good too. yes, I'm very lucky to have found such a wonderful guy to marry! We have been dating for over 8 yrs engaged for almost three mos and getting married in florida this June! Second and LAST marriage for us both. what about you?
@nicolminol: I just ordered on of these in nude! :) It better push me up!
