    My seamstress is amazing at sewing in padded cups. I still don’t know how she does it, but she’s also able to give you cleavage.

    Get the cups sewn in! I had so much cleavage when mine were sewn in and there’s no risk about seeing the bra pop up in the back (most dresses are low cut in the back).

    5’9, size 6, 34A here. I got a longline bra that’s basically just for coverage and corset action — the cups on it are actually far too big (since sometimes strapless bras put the cups on an A-cup too close together so the underwire always pinches … so I got a 34B instead and it fits much more comfortably.  But then cups sewn into the dress for actual support. The seamstress basically DEMANDED I get the cups, because she said the dress, which has its own structure to it, was buckling at the bust line. Of course I didn’t notice it til she pointed it out, and then OF COURSE I couldn’t NOT notice it after that!

    I did have to get the top of the dress let out ever so slightly, though I’m not sure if that was because of the cups or because I started working on pull-ups at the gym so my back muscles built up … but I’m blaming the cups! They aren’t noticeable at all though unless you’re my mom, in which case my sudden bustiness is the most hilarious thing in the world!

    I usually wear a 34A or 36A.  I tried my dress on with both a long line bra and with the cups. I chose the cups! It’s so much more comfortable and definitely not as hot

    @OrangeBlossom2012:  I’m similiar to your size, and have the same cup size.. I’ve decided I want to have cups w/ padding sewn in.. that way I’m not worrying about a bra hanging out anywhere, but I’ll still have a little extra with the padding. Luckily my dress makes me look like I have more than I do.. some dresses are very unforgiving to us smaller chested girls

    I’m wearing a longline bra and getting padding in the cups. My dress is a mermaid fit and I need the extra tucking in around the tummy to keep it all a nice smooth line. I’m slender, but I have a belly when I slouch! The longline makes me stand up straighter.

    I have not gotten my dress altered yet, but I am also a 32A and I will be getting cups and a strapless push up bra sewn into the dress that way it wont peek above the dress and stays in place. I want to find a Victoria Secret “Bombshell” strapless bra that is all white and have it sewn in. I just bought 2 of them and I LOVE them! They really do push you up and out without looking “fake”.

    I used the chicken cutlets and a long line bra, and I had a tasteful amount of cleavage (but it was more than I would naturally have had for sure)! I had to wear the longline bra though because it helped keep my strapless dress up, since I lost a couple lbs just before the wedding on accident….

    I’m leaning towards bra cups.  I think if your dress fits right, you should not lose any curves!  I’m afraid if I wear a bra it will be cumbersome and bulky!

    I’m a 34A and I wore a strapless bra.  I felt more comfortable in more “normal garb” type wear, but that was just me!

    Bra cups, they actually add a lot of “umphf” for us A cuppers

    I’m wearing a victoria secret low back corset bra (called the ‘low back baby’ or ‘back off baby’ something like that) and adding chicken cutlet inserts into it, I felt a little better wearing a bra

    I am worried about my strapless dress though and my flat chest – I’ll stuff whatever I need to in there to help hold it up!
