C is pretty big in my opinion!!!  You don’t want your boobs hanging out…it’s a wedding, not a Halloween party.  How does it look now, without the “stuffing”?

I feel you. I’m in the upper B range but it is NOT a perky B, thank you biggest downside to losing weight. I might do that if my dress was a corset back and had some plastic boning or something in it – something to keep it absolutely in place – but if not, I’d be really worried about it slipping out of the position I had chosen for it. I’d much prefer to wear some push-up shapewear underneath or a bra that was sufficiently invisible.

I’m a small 34C/full 32D, and I almost always wear a push-up…or no bra at all. I’ve been trying to figure out a way to get maximum oopmh, too, since strapless bras can be so uncomfortable.  

 

I’ve heard and read great things about having your cups sewn into your dress, espcially since you don’t have to worry about readjusting all night. However, I came across a couple of threads on other sites where some of the smaller ladies thought it didn’t provide enough pushup (but they fixed it by wearing a bra, longline, or getting another pair of bra cups sewn in).

 

And here’s another informative thread on Weddingbee. It suffices to say, I’m still on the hunt for the best combination!

If it’s a good seamstress I would probably trust their judgement. Or maybe get some other opinions from other shops. If the general consesnous among the professionals is that it could work to sew it in, go for it! You might also want to see if they can get it completed in enough time that they could be taken out if you decide it isn’t what you want. Along those same lines, I would make sure they can be taken out without ruining the dress just in case you decide it isn’t working for you.

Huh?? a C is big to me. I’m only a B. But, I wore a sexy Bustier and it pushed my girls up and made them look incredibly good (bigger) in my wedding dress. 🙂 Here’s a pic.

@s2bmrscook:  Yep. No problems at all. I got a really comfortable one.

@Sweetescape1976:  @peachacid:  I think it all depends on your proportions. I have really “spread-out” boobs, so they actually look small until I “gather” them up into a bra (sorry, this is the best way I can put it). And this is why I have zero problems going braless. Plus I am extra blessed in my *ahem* bum area, so I look for ways to balance out what my mama gave me. 😀

@s2bmrscook:  That might work, but I wouldn’t go out and buy anything until you’ve tried your dress on. You might like the way your girls look with the cups by themsleves, and you don’t want to add extra undergarments unless you have to (or at least that’s how I feel). If you aren’t satisfied with one pair, you might ask your seamstress to sew in another pair, as well.

@s2bmrscook:  I’m the same exact way. If I’m even wearing one, the bra is the first thing that comes off, especially if it’s a stupid strapless. I honestly think the more you can attach to your dress and the less you have to wear on your body…the better (although I find longlines/bustiers/corsets not as uncomfortable since the support comes from the bodice itself).  

 

What does your dress look like? Your chest might actually sit where you want it if it’s a sweetheart.
