I’m not busty at all, so I don’t know if this option would work for you, but my seamstress sewed cups into the lining of my gown. I am supported, my boobs look awesome, and I don’t have to worry about a strapless bra falling down all day. Maybe that’s something you could consider?

I’m a DD but have the same problem.  Great idea sewing a bra structure into the dress.  Can’t wait to hear what others have to say!

@ncrossett87:  I am a 38F, which is almost the same thing as a 38DDD.  In my experience, the best resources for foundations and lingerie for our figures is found in the UK.

Try figleaves.com and bravissimo.com. They both have some gorgeous pieces that will accommodate larger busts.

the person doing my alterations ordered a strapless bra and is sewing it into the gown. I hear that its the sure fire way to make sure it does it job and remains hidden. I would definitely ask your alterations person about doing something similar or for bra recomendations.

I’m a 34 DD so I hear you to some extent.  My seamstress is sewing cups into my dress and with the boning already in place, I shouldn’t (for the 1st time since I turned 10!) need a bra.  Is this possible with your dress?

I am 32DD and am having the same issue.  My dress doesn’t accommodate having anything sewn in, so my options are a low back longline bra and a convertible bra.  Maybe one of those style would work for you.
