@SophieB3:  I think I bought this same sticky bra you posted (I got it at Joann’s) to wear under a tube top. It fit really nice, and even though the weather was humid (wore it in Hawaii) it stayed put (even though I thought it felt like it was coming off, it really wasn’t)

It was super comfortable. I did pay $30 for mine, (well I actually had a 40% off coupon so not really) so I can’t say if the quality of this one is the same as the one I got. I would definitely recommend it though and you can try it on, kind of, without taking the adhesive backing off and that way if you realize it won’t work you can return it!

Feather lite or push up! Either way you mush your breasts together to get them to be pushed up. I helped her get into her dress, and I had never seen anything like it! I asked a bunch of questions, because my not so busty sister was complaining about her push up bras.  Anyway, when my friend wore it on her wedding day she looked boobylicious way into the night!  She said it was comfortable and not very sweaty.

You can also have push ups sewn into the cups inside the dress.

My nudbra knock off is in the mail. $8 from light in the box.com. I am also a member of the committee

I also recommend NuBra. It is a more expensive brand (beware of the knockoffs everywhere), but it definitely stays on well and keeps its stickiness over time.

I bought a NuBra from Nordstrom to wear under a dress but not for my wedding. It was worth the $60 I paid. It stuck really well but still came off easily at the end of the night. It was as comfortable as something like that is expected to be. I like that I could wear it again and even though I wore it for 6 hours it still feels like it could be worn a few more times.

I would ask the seamstress to put bigger cups in and have the dress fitted properly. I didn’t wear a bra with my dress and I’m really glad. I didn’t want to worry about it showing or having to yank it up or anything. I’m a 32A and looked like I at least had some boobs (ok you may disagree, pictures below)! I lost a few pounds before the wedding too, but they’re all back 🙂

@SophieB3:  IF you go the tape route, use double sided carpet tape. You get it in the home improvement section. My sister and I were dancers growing up. She got the long legs and I got the big boobs. Carpet tape is by far the best option out there if you are trying to tape your dress up. The garmet tape won’t hack it.
