I am not “large” chested exactly (32C and a size 0-2) but I need support! Any advice on sewn in cups vs. a strapless bra? I really don’t like the longline bras because they are uncomfortable. I like the idea of sewn in cups in my dress but worry about the amount of support, and I would like just a touch of pushup.

harris2014: Before I went for my fitting, I was planning on picking up a strapless bra. I’m glad I didn’t because I had the cups sewn in and it was perfect. The place I went had two different cups, one for a little lift and one for in your face lift, which I didn’t care for. So I opted for the little lift ones and it was great.

I’m a 36D and will have my cups sewn in. David’s Bridal said they can sew in two sets of cups for extra pushup if needed, so maybe that could be an option for you!

If you just want a good supportive bra, Freya makes amazing ones.

I’m a 36 D and I just made do with the cups in the dress and the built in 6 hook bra thingy it came with. It was all the support I needed the dress did not move an inch

I’m the same size as you, 32C 0-2 and I went with a nubra with my dress, however I did not want too much cleavage in front of my family. If you want a pushup, get sewn in ones as they usually have a cutlet at the bottom of the cups that push your boobs up and together for a fuller look. Your seamstress should have them/sew them in for you.

did you guys have to keep pulling your dress up? yeah it will give boob lift but does that mean the dress will stay up? I was going to get my dress altered to a corset back to make sure it stays put(like the bridal salon suggested) but an alterations person i went to suggested adding cups instead. I wear a F cup.

I’m a 32g/h and unfortunately I could not find a bra that would fit me. Ultimately after much trying, my seamstress agreed that it would be better to go bra-less and I couldn’t be happier!

MrsBPhD: I’m the same size and i really struggle with this. Have you already had your wedding? Did the girls stay in place? What kind if support did your dress offer? Steel boning or regular boning? Cups? Anything special about them? Thanks!

bananchik: They actually offered them at the bridal shop. If you got your dress at a store and are having them do the alterations, I’m sure they would have them there.
On a side note, as someone else mentioned, my dress had a corset back so I made it as tight as I wanted.

I am a 34 DD and I just went bra less. No sewn in cups are anything I was fine and never had to tug on my dress.

I’m 34C, size 4.. I’m going to wear nubra to give extra support. There is already cup sew to the gown but I would like to have extra push up, so nubra is the way to go.

harris2014: Im a C as well and will def be having cups sewn in (if I even need it, my dress is sort of structured so I might not). In My sisters BM dress (strapless) I didn’t wear a bra at all and it was fine.
I always find that strapless bras add one more thing that can fall down – i do not want to be pulling at my bra all night!
