O.O I have not heard of this- has she given you an example of what this means?

PS: I’m also not well endowed at ALL- I will absolutely get cups and structure sewn into my dress like woah.

Mine are sewn under the lining, so I can’t even see them. And I got double cups because I am not well endowed either! They make a huge difference, and I highly recommend them!

I too am not well endowed at all and since my dress has a v shaped in the top part, I definitely had to to something about the girls. So, the seamstress suggested double cups and wow it does make a difference, not too much of a difference where by Fi won’t recognize me but certainly a difference where by it does look like a woman and not a young girl.

@ktmcgwvu08:  Are these full cups or just shaper “cutlets”

most alterations at our shop nearly every one gets at least cutlets, so regardless of your cup size they will hold up better and if needed add size also, depending on where they’re placed.

@ktmcgwvu08:  I’m a 34 A – and a big fan of the bombshell multi-way from VS…. combined with those little silicon inserts for that extra lift. It’s a C everytime!

A friend of mine didnt have her cups sewn into her dress, and throughout the night her cups were sticking to her breasts but then the dress was moving/slipping down (because it was strapless) so there are more than a few pictures where you can see the cups sticking out of her dress…kind of embarrassing

I’ve never heard of free floating cups. Sorry that’s how I imagine them without them being sewn in. Haha! I am small up top too. I bought a super padded bra from VS that had loads of push up. It filled the top of my dress and made me look like I had some chest which was good. Otherwise it would have been empty boning at the top.
