@MrsPeterson86:  I had the same issue with the long line bra while trying on dresses.

My friend is a 38H and she had cups sew in and a corset back added to the her dress, she went braless and no one was the wiser.  I’m a 36H and I’m planning on doing the same thing.

Bra

No bra

 

I looked more natural, and felt more comfortable without a bra. Didn’t have cups sewn in but the dress is a corset back. I’m a 36GG.

I’m going to get cups sewn into mine.

This is mine with a bra.

This is without (a size smaller.)

agree with sewing in cups, just one less thing to worry about moving around

I didn’t do the sewn-in cups because I was afraid that they wouldn’t support me enough (40 FF with a zip-back, not corset-back dress) but I can say that the 2nd happiest moment of my wedding day was being able to take that bra OFF!  My bra created a ridge at the top of the skirt of my dress, so I had to pull the Spanx up over it to cover/hide the ridge (and thus lost some of the sucking-in power of my Spanx!) and it was SO difficult to sit in. When I got in the car to leave the reception, it was hilarious– between the angle and fit of the seat/seatbelt I had to sit sideways so I could talk to my husband once we drove away. The girls were secure but, once that bra and dress came on, I was very much looking forward to taking them off and putting on some “regular” clothes again!

What about getting a normal strapless bra, and not long line? I never even considered a long line so idk what benefits it has boob-wise over a regular strapless, which might be more comfortable.

Following this. I really don’t want to buy a bra for one day. And with my weight loss, it’s going to be a gamble to buy a long line bra for my fitting in may and then have july come and it no longer fit. I am trying to decide if I’d be comortable with cups sewn in. I got a dress with a corset back.

Did anyone who got cups sewn in regret it?

I’m going to add my two cents even though I don’t have a dress yet. I’ve worn longline bras in the past, and I find that the plastic boning bends and gives me an awfully pronounced muffin top after having worn it for a while. It will dig in to your hips or midsection. Like pichansen said, no one will be the wiser.

@MrsPeterson86:  thank you for this thread, I’m now thinking about making my a corset back to help with the noob situation.
