After Miss Sundae’s bra-tastic post, I started thinking about undergarments for The Big Day.
I’m thinking strapless probably won’t work for me, because I don’t have much to hold one up. But what about those stick-on silicone bras that I’ve heard so much about…?
How well do they stay on? If I start to get hot and dewy is it going to slip down the front of my dress and give me stomach boobies? Or maybe shift to the side in an unfortunate case of underarm cleavage?
And how about the stick-on bra/spanx combo? I’m going to for the dream team of nice boobage shape (not so much adding cleavage, because you can’t create cleavage where there isn’t anything to work with) and a smooth line along the stomach area (prefably not one of those bike shorts dealys, but something that is tight around the stomach but leads into a skirt).
Please tell me something like this exists!

I can’t say enough good things about the nubra that I’m using… it’s stuper sticky and doesn’t move once you put it on. And like I said on Cherry Pie’s post, if you clip it too tight you can get TOO much uplift! I can’t speak for any lucky larger busted girl, but it does a B just fine 🙂

I’m a B cup, so not too large and I decided to have cups sewn into my dress. The ones they are putting in even have a little "lifter" on the bottom for a little extra oomph. 🙂
I decided that route since I’m using a waist slimmer and thought a bra would get too uncomfortable with another piece of armor right underneath it. I think it was about $15 / cup, so not too bad.

I love my nubra but I do have to say that using it can depend on how long you’ll be wearing it. Because it’s plastic and silicone it does not breathe well. I tend to build up a bit of sweat underneath it. I’ll be wearing my dress for some 8 hours and that will probably be the limit for the bra. I’m still debating whether the ubra or something made of fabric. Before the evening dancing, i’ll be wearing a more breatheable bra for sure.
I know several people also wear regular bras and buy silicone inserts. The ones I saw at Nordstrom seemed very nice for around $36?. That’ll give you added cleavage but still can wear a regular bra. My friend wore a nubra lite under a padded strapless bra.

alli – Good call on having the cups sewn directly into the dress. I’ll probably do that because it seems the most comfortable and practical. I’m not trying to look stacked or anything, so that would be perfect! Thanks!
