Hi! My dress is strapless with a slight v in the back. A regular strapless bra was not an option. I tried on low back bustiers, and they HURT. Because of that, I am getting cups sewn in. With my dress, I think that’s going to end up being more flattering anyway. I won’t be wearing spanks because my dress is a natural waisted ball gown, you can’t see tummy pooch anyway. I’m just going to be wearing a thong with Mrs. my new last name embroidered on the hip πŸ™‚

Do you need cups at all?  Years ago when I was that size I just free-boobed it everywhere (well, with a built in shelf).  Heck, I did that right up into the B-cups for awhile there.  My dress wasn’t shaped in such a way that my pooch mattered, so no idea what’s best there!

I’m a 32B and I had cups sewn in. I have a keyhole back, so regular bras weren’t an option and the low back options I found were never low-back enough. It seems like a good solution and is comfortable. Just make sure you buy the right cup size, otherwise you’ll end up with an awkward gap.

I also bought some spanx shorts to wear, but I’m hoping with the ridiculous amounts of yoga I’ve been doing it will be more to avoid pantylines and less to hold stuff in πŸ™‚

I loved my sewn in cups!  and am a 34a!  I also just wore granny panties.  Spanx were not an option because they would messed with my dress.

jolie2:  Girl. I am also not exactly well-endowed in the chest. But let me tell you: You’ve got to try the Nubra. It’s a little pricey, but it’s basically a super high quality stick-on bra. The best part is you attach each cup separately and then pull it together and clasp in the centre — so you can control the impact on the cleavage. They have a push up version, too but I went with the regular one.

I tried my dress on with my undergraments (also got some tummy top underwear because i’m self conscious about my lower belly – no panty lines but my dress is thicker) for the first time and even my mom said “is that a little cleavage I see?” shocker. Definitely my advice and it can be reused as long as you take care of it πŸ™‚

they were! Sometimes I had to adjust to get more cleavage but I had a corset so they were very close to me!

jolie2:  I can seccond the stick on bra! I went with the Braza as my dress had a halter with triangular cups. I fixed the stick on bra to my dress with some fashoin tape and it all stayed in place all day. and it was so comfortable I forgot I was wearing it.

For the bottom I wore hold in pantyhose and they worked wonders. My dress had a low back so any hold in underwear would either show or be to tight around the waist and give me an extra tumy roll. Under that I just wore some nice comfortable no seam panties. Blue of course

jolie2:  I think I’ll have to take my whole dress off to pee … definitely not getting it up over my hips. I don’t remember what underwear I got – I tossed the tag πŸ™

But the nubra definitely does not move. It’s super sticky. Not like the one-time use stick-ons you get at the drug store.
