Hiya, fellow cuppers…
Can you give me some suggestions on what your favorite bra is for a strapless dress with a little push up oomph added? I don’t want to be popping out, but I don’t want my boobs to be smooshed either.
What’s your favorite bra??

I have a bustier that my seamstress is getting for me…it doesn’t add bulk, but does lift and support…it’s also got boning in it…I wish I knew the name of it but if you’re interested let me know (I’m also a 36 C wearing a strapless dress).

I got a corset thing from fredericks, their satin corset. I am a 36c or d and it works WONDERFULLY, not to mention, it sucks me in!!!

I have a trick…for strapless, if you’re a 36C, buy a 34D bra. Bras go by rib cage size and then add the "A, B, C, or D" for the number of inches you’re poking out. If you want a bra to stay, get one size smaller than you’re used to and wear it every other day for a month before the wedding to break it in (make sure to wear it on the last hook, bras stretch over time). Then when the big day comes, your bra will stay put, and your girls will have the support they need! (I buy Lillyette 34-D bras for strapless. They have optional straps that you can use while breaking them in!)

I would highly recommend going to someplace like Nordstrom’s and asking the saleswoman to help you out. I’ve got the problem of being too small, but she totally helped me find a great (padded) strapless that went with the dress (not for my wedding, but something else) and my budget:)
