I am the same size, and my seamstress put in padded cups, so I wore nothing under it.  It was very comfortable and looked great.

@MrsTVLover:  same here.  Just some padded cups sewn into the dress and nothing underneath.  As long as it’s well fitted and snug around the middle, there shouldnt be any issues with it falling.  I didn’t have to adjust at all the entire day.

I have a very small chest (32a) and the seamstress added padded cups. I looked like I had something from the front. But if you looked down my dress, you could kind of see the cups. I didn’t have enough to make cleavage. If I could go back, I would probably have just worn nothing under my dress. The silhouette of the dress would not have made me look flat.

I wish I had a small chest because I don’t want any spillage – I’m pretty modest. I think small chested women can really pull of the strapless dresses.

so I’m having an illustion neckline added to my dress to hide the boobage because I couldn’t find a dress I really loved with sleeves

One of my good friends is a 32A or 32B, and she also did sewn-in cups!

@CarterLove:  I’m a 36DD and I’d never wear strapless, I think they work much better for small chests. As long as it’s altered to fit you perfectly I think it should be fine. The sewn-in padded cups is a good idea too.

I had double cups sewn in. It made a huge difference, because my boobs need lots of help.

I’m about the same size and the seamstress added cups. I wanted to look like I at least had a little cleavage, so I opted to wear one of those bras that sticks to your skin, since my dress had a low back.

@CarterLove:  I had no issues with the sticky bra. I bought 2 different ones and tested them out ahead of time to make sure it’d be comfortable. I did have some issues before the ceremony, with having to pull my dress up a lot during our first look pictures, but I had my mom pull my corset tighter once we got back to the venue and it was all good after that.

@CarterLove:  I had cups sewn in. I also had a corset back so I had NO issues of having to pull it up through the night. The cups I sewed in had some substance, lol and definitely helped me look more “proportionate” up top….

i’m a 34a and had a strapless dress.  my seamstress also sewed in padded cups, which helped a lot & i didn’t need to wear a bra under, which was nice
