For most people, if you get bust cups sewn into your dress, it’s all you need!  They come in various cup sizes and can be sewn right into the lining.  That way you don’t have to worry about finding a strapless bra that works.  If the dress fits you the way it should, you shouldn’t need to worry about anything else.

my dress was fit EXACTLY to my body, and it has boning so it fits me well. I am not concerned with wearing a strapless at all, and won’t be. Ask your seamstress to sew you in some cups or some type of support. That way you also won’t have to worry about the bra showing at all!

I agree about the cups. I had that done for a bridesmaid’s dress (it had a low back) and it worked perfectly. The structure of the dress sounds like it would hold you all in, and the cups would provide the support and lift and stay-in-place-ness-while-dancing that you’re looking for!

I was going to suggest having your seamstress sew cups into your dress, too.  That’s what mine suggested, so that I wouldn’t have to worry about a strapless bra showing or moving around.

Let me know if you do this and if it works.  Have any, um, well-endowed brides tried this? I’m a D-cup, so I’m a little worried about this being enough support for me.

Jessie516… I am a solid C and I have never found a good strapless bra, but I have ALWAYS had success with cups being sewn into a dress. The trick is to find a TALENTED seamstress. The wrong one will make it uncomfortable~

I have a v-neck dress with some structure under the bustline.  my seamstress advised me that having cups sewn into the dress will make you look fuller (and I am a fuller girl) so i am going no undergarments..  i’ve tried on the dress several times and its quite comfortable.

If the dress has a solid structure, you may not even need cups sewn in – I went braless and it fit wonderfully (I’m a DD) because of the really solid boning in the gown.  Good lcuk!
