Are they single cups or double?

My alterations seamstress did double cups and told me to push them up and together to create one. My dress has a corset back and it helped keep them in place.

@ladyjustice: ditto what she said.  but then again, we had the same dress, lol.

but seriously, i also had double cups and i thought i had ok cleavage until the seamstress told me to literally put my hands in there and push them up…..and they stayed! it was like miracle cleavage!  they would fall back down after a while, so i think my photog and my Darling Husband got used to me just randomly sticking my hands down my dress to fix them as needed!

I’ve used the adhesive silicone cups before, and I never had any trouble keeping them on. I even wore them through dancing at prom! It would really make a difference, too, because I have TWICE as much cleavage in my wedding dress using the adhesive bra with the foam push-up cups already sewn in. :]

Jenna Marbles has some helpful tips re: bigger looking tatas. 

Like PurpleUnicorn mentioned, you can lift (ok, yank) those puppies up into place. You could also see about having a pushup bra cut up and have those cups sewn into your dress instead. If you REALLY want to shove the girls sky high, a Playmate secret is to take a rolled sock (like, a rolled tube sock, the big ‘uns) and place them under your boobs as you do the lift trick. Wiggle and jiggle around until you reach your preferred cleavage.

OMG!! These comments are friggen hilarious!! I’m literally laughing over here! But aside from all the laughing, you girls have some really good advice. I’m in the same boat as amberdawn1064!! It’s a shame really. lol!! Sewing in a bra is a really good idea. I guess I should start looking into “BIGGER BOOBIES” myself! ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my best friends is a model and she swears by good ole duct tape. The boobtape can really lose its adhesiveness when she is sweating under those camera lights. She is larger chested like myself and needs the support but she fixed my cousin’s too small booby problem with duct tape and gel inserts.

@secondchances: Good idea! And, duct tape likely wouldn’t suck to take off as much as one would think, because the sweat will eventually loosen it up. 

*pro-tip* If you’re ever abducted and duct taped, lick/spit all over it as much as you can, it breaks down the grip of it. I saw it on a true-crime show once, so it’s gotta be true, right?

I ummm did pageants (blush) and honestly duct tape is a girls best friend.  It can keep big girls from moving and push up and hold more petite

Absolutely, hands down the VS Miraculous Bra. It has a ton of padding, lift, and gives me the BEST support of any strapless bra I’ve ever worn.

Just make sure you’re getting the right size… if it’s too loose around your torso, it’ll keep slipping down (that was always my mistake… thought I was a 32 but I’m like a 29…). Make sure to get measured.

Miraculous Bra changed my life. I’ll never go back to any other bra. However- it’s probably best for those who are in the A-B or small C range, because it’s serious pushup power!

My Fiance calls it the SPB- the super power bra. Laughing

I’m an A/very small B cup and am having the same issue.  My dress is a strapless, low back, sweetheart neckline (but corset style which helps) so I can’t use my trusty push-up bra.

My seamstress wanted to sew in the padded cups but they aren’t really doing anything for lift or creating any extra cleavage. 

So I went to a speciality lingerie store and purchased a low-back bustier.  I also have pads I can sew into the cups of the bustier.  However, I think I may need more oomph and push up…so I am also considering adding the chicken cutlets/silicone gel inserts into the cups of my bustier (but under my boobs)…I’m just wondering if they will stay put.

Has anyone had a good/bad experience with the cutlets (non sticky kind) inside a bustier?

I am the same size I had my seamstress sew in cups too, which helped.  The real miracle though is physically reaching in and lifting them up.  My seamstress actually just did it for me and totally caught me off guard saying “first, you have to lift the boobs” in her Portuguese accent (it was so cute and funny).  When you are putting your dress on, before any tying or zipping happens, lift them up and hold the dress tight against them until you are completely secured into the dress.  It really is the best way, and honestly, it works even better if someone else does the lifting for you so you can just hold the dress ๐Ÿ™‚
