Is there anyway to get a good strapless bra to help hold you in. That’s what I did on my wedding day. It was some extra comfort that they werent hanging out and that they werent going anywhere.

Your wedding is almost a month away I would think you could find a local seamstress that could easily do that quickly for you.

I also agree with the PP maybe a different strapless bra or some double sided tape to try to hold the dress up.

I agree that you have time to get alterations done.

I’m no seamtress, but it looks me to like the dress needs its own support system. If it had a little boning or something, it would hold things in place a bit better.

Since I’m not a seamstress and could be entirely wrong, I also think getting a good long line strapless bra could help keep everything where it belongs and let your dress come up higher. Then the double-sided tape that was mentioned would keep the dress from migrating.

@ejoyb: I don’t think the problem is the dress because your breastline seems a little low. I’d suggest going to a specialty lingerie store or to a department store with a reputation for lingerie service and GET FITTED for a strapless bra AND/OR corset (corsets are great because they help support the bustline from below). And by “get fitted,” the girls walking around with tape-measurers at VS do not count.)Better yet–take your dress with you and show the person the problem. Someone who’s an expert in that field will help you. It appears from the picture that the strapless bra doesn’t fit you properly–I think that you could be supported more.

One tip I got from getting a fitting myself is that when you are wearing a strapless bra and you are larger on top, it may help to go down in the band-size and up in the cup size–the sizing is similar, but the extra cinching around the band will (again) give you more support from beneath.

I agree with JennyW1. It might be sort of expensive, but I do think it’s worth going to a specialty bra shop. A pro should have just the thing to help!

I agree, perhaps you could find a good strapless bra or corset for some more support?  I don’t think it’s too much cleavage (but, then again, I have big knockers, so cleavage is a relative term…)

p.s. I don’t know how low your dress is in the back, so this might not work, but I have heard of women wrapping their breasts with an ace bandage or something similar as a way to minimize cleavage. It might be worth a try…there are even youtube videos showing how to do it, which could be entertaining, at least! 🙂

My suggestion is to go to a seamstress right this momest and see if they can add straps while you wait. Tell them it’s a rush. The service is so cheap as it is that I can’t imagine them upcharging you too much. Some good strong spaghetti straps would do the trip.

I don’t think it’s so much that cleavage itself is the issue, it’s more that the dress doesn’t come up far enough.  Boning on each side could help.  I think you have time if you do it now.   Good luck!

How about adding a modesty panel from tulle, lace or some other fabric? My dress was really low cut like yours. My mom just added some tulle that was lying around the house to the neckline, took her about an hour. I don’t have a better pic at work that shows it but something like this.

 idea.

I’m with the other pposters… if you’re wering a good long line strapless in that picture then it doesn’t fit right. Those girls just need a little lifting, in that case. Hopefully you can get a fitting and a good bra before the wedding.

Let us know how it turns out?
