I’ve seen a lot of women have their alterations person sew cups into the dress itself.

I agree that you should just have some cookies sewn into the bodice of the dress.

From a smaller chested lady, I suggest you throw out that sticky thing!

Also, cups sewn into the dress are okay, but for us smaller girls (and our girls) you can feel a little exposed ( in my opinion)

My sister had a similar dilemma. The dress shop recommended that she buy a regular strapless bra that has like, 3-5 hooks closures in the back. Then, just hook only the one or two lowest hooks, and fold the upper part of the bra under. Does that make sense? It worked great! I pinned it very discreetly to the top/inside of the dress, and she was good to go. 

If your dress is a littel lower, you may try a low-back strapless, which you can get at specialty shop. It clasps at the lower rib cage and the sups stand up tall like a boustierre. Not the most comfortable. but it will work.

Good luck!

I’ve had cups sown into formal gowns before, and it works really well.  For us small-chested gals, we don’t exactly need the support that larger ladies need, so with cups sown in, you really don’t even need to wear anything under your dress.
