@MichiganGirl24:  I just picked up my dress today with the cups sewn in.  They worked WONDERS for my boobs

I had them sewn in, and it changed the way my dress looked on me (hiked them up higher and made my already ample cleavage more).  So I took them out and just went without!  Just need to make sure the dress is tight enough!

I had cups sewn in, way more comfy. I do wish I had worn garment tape though. I was pulling that sucker up all night because I refused to let her do the alterations so tight that it caused the dreaded back fat lol

I had cups sewn in and was very happy with that decision. My seamstress had a regular lined and a more padded cup, and I went with the regular ones. The ones with the padding gave me the dreaded armpit fat, lol.

@MichiganGirl24:  the cups are only sewn in with a few stitches. When I had my dress dry cleaned they took them out (dunno why but they did) so no.

I had cups sewn in and I loved it. I actually had multiple cups sewn in because I needed a little help in that area! I’m small-chested but I never go bra-less because I worry about modesty, so I felt like it was a perfect fit.

I don’t think the bra cups will hurt the resale value at all. I think most brides (new dress or reused) know some sort of alterations will be necessary anyway, and lots of brides sew in cups so it might be a bonus!

Mine already had a little padding, which worked well- no bra needed. Even though my dress had straps, I used double sided tape, which always worked well- no concerns about showing too much skin when I bent to hug people.
