The only disadvantage is that they’ll stick out in your dress detail shots your photographer takes.

I had my bra cups sewn into my dress and I love the way it feels and looks with the dress on!

I agree with @KLP2010: If your dress has a beautiful train, and you hang your dress up to have photos taken of it, a lot of times photographers will take the pix of it from the back, and you’ll see the cups. But I think the dress detail pictures look just as nice from the front side, and that way the cups don’t ruin the photo ๐Ÿ™‚

Get the cups SEWN IN!  You do not want to have to worry about an uncomfortable bra!!!

I just wore a bridesmaids’ dress last weekend with cups sewn in.  I had to readjust a few times during the night, but it was much better than dealing with a bra that keeps sliding down!

Cups.  No bra.  Do it.

These are great tips – I am leaning towards getting the cups sewn in too. That way when you are dancing/moving around a lot, you don’t have to worry about any part of the bra exposing in the back or whatever. The only downside is that you cannot reuse the bra if it is sewn in.

*Question – do I buy an actual strapless bra and then the seamstress will sew that in? – or – Is it actual seperate cups that I have to buy?

Do the cups – my seamstress just had cups that she put in – I didnt have to buy anything!

Depends on what size you are.  Cups sewn in if you don’t feel like you need a lot of support, a good strapless bra (get fitted for one and a real shop, don’t just pick one off the rack at a department store) if you need substantial support.

What about if you are planning to sell your dress after the wedding? I want to do that, and I’m worried that getting cups sewn in will deter people from buying it. My guess is that people could always take the cups out or put different ones in if they weren’t the right size, but if they’re buying a dress in your size they will probably have the same bra size…right?

If you are larger than a B, just having cups sewn in won’t look right. I would try your dress on and see what you would look like with just cups or a strapless bra. If you find that you look better with the strapless bra the seamstress can always sew that into your dress as well so it doesn’t move. My bra has been sewn into my dress and it is very comfortable and I never have to adjust it.

I had cups sewn into my gown and I’m a very busty chick. I loved the freedom, especially in since it was a pretty hot day. The only down side was that since my bridesmaid fastened the inner coset a bit to snug some of my earlier shots had the muffin top look in the front…lol. but like Ms. Chif said Photoshop it. ๐Ÿ™‚
