I am very top heavy/big busted and I went braless.

I’m a 32Dirty Delete and wearing a bra; I wouldn’t say I ‘need’ one, as my dress has a boned corset and offers support, but I feel safer wearing one. In your dress, I would definitely wear one, as though my boobs are nice and perky and a nice shape (if I may say so myself lol), a bra gives a better shape and line. I would also feel completely unsupported in a dress that style, even with sewn-in cups, and would feel self-conscious; I just know my boobs would jiggle a lot and I would HATE that walking down the aisle etc.

So, I’d be inclined to agree with your seamstress in all honesty, and keep looking. You can get converters which you attach to the back of a regular bra, and they give it an extra-low back. You can also get back-less bodies, or, give the stick-on bras a go; I have one and while it isn’t that supportive, I find it better than nothing, and it gives good shape.

As a couture seamstress, I can tell ya…


Cups have zero support. Over a B cup, they are nothing more than nipple covers lol. I know some seamstresses try to use them with their larger busted girls, but they dont “work” unless the dress has a corset back. Basically if the gown is not super structured, the boobage escapes from under the cup. Have you tried the bras that stick on with clear adhesive tabs?

Omg I have to tell you I think this dress looks gorgeous and serious just gave me a serious case of dress apprehension.

I think that dress can handle getting having a support system sewn in. I am in no way someone to swear but ask your seamstress’  honest oppinion. Is an independamt seamstress or is she with a salon?

First off I want to say that your dress is gorgeous!!

I too am somewhat “blessed” (if you will) on top and I am going the adhesive bra route. The cups just didn’t work out so well. Good luck!!

I’m a 36Dirty Delete and used cups.  I don’t think adhesives are worth a crap!  I think I looked ok!

Love the dress!  My dress luckily is very structured at the top so I am going without.  Longline bras can be sooo uncomforatable!
