I feel a bit silly asking this question, but i could sure use some help. If I want a bra sewed into my dress, does anyone know if I need to buy a special kind of bra? Do I just buy the cups/pads, a strapless bra, or a bustier? What’s the best way to do this?

I’m having a bra sewn into my dress. It’s actually only the cups…at least for mine. My seamstress just whipped out the cups at my first fitting, so I’m sure yours will have them too.
I bought a strapless bra initially because I had no intention of having the cups sewn in, but it’s so much easier to do that. And then you don’t have to worry about the stupid strapless bra falling down all night!

I have a strapless corset bra to go under my dress and at the fitting, it was showing. So my seamstress put some heavy-duty velcro on the inside of my dress and the outside of my bra and it works like a charm! That way I can use the strapless later, which is good since I spent $70 on it.

Oh, one good thing my seamstress did tell me is that if I lose too much weight in my bust then I can have another cup added in, too. It sounded a little odd to me, but when she showed me, it worked really well.
Basically she can get my boobs to look like the size they initially were when I bought the gown!

I’m pretty sure it’s just the cups and the seamstress will probably provide them.

I had my first fitting today and asked my tailor about it. She said that she thought the best thing was to use the cups from a bra i already have – so yes, there will be some bra sacrificing going on, but she said she didn’t like the quality of sew-in cups and this way, I know the cups work for me. She said it was fine to put 2 cups in, as well, if I want the added "oomph."
