When I was smaller (C range) I wore an evening gown with cups sewn in, and it was the best thing ever. The dress will be zipped up and snug, and it won’t fall!

Having cups sewn in will save the next person some money so it shouldn’t affect the resale value. I’m a 36D and am having cups sewn in, I find that it is much easier not to have to deal with a bra when I’m wearing a dress. You’ll probably spend the evening pulling up your dress whether or not you have a bra on and at least this way there won’t be a bra sticking out of the top if your dress slides down.

believe it or not i ended up just wearing a VS biofit strapless – i am a 34D but i bought the C because i wanted the lift. i didnt have a problem with it falling down or having to pull it up too much mostly because my dress fit really well but  i didnt have a corset or have cups sewn in.

I am wearing a dress with no bra, and no cups either. The dress is very fitted and is being altered further to fit me perfectly. I have 34 C chest and they are more than secure in my dress like this. It is strapless, but it isn’t a very deep neckline, also my fabric is fairly stiff, and my dress has boning. All of this helps to made sure everything will stay in place. I’m not sure that I would opt to do this is the dress was a lighter weight material.

I have worn a good amount of evening gowns before and I try my best not to have to wear a bra in them. Strapless bras just don’t stay up and I spend more time fixing the bra then worrying about the dress, or anything else. I know for me this is the right choice. I will have body tape on hand too, just in case I begin to feel less than secure in. Then I can always put some on to ensure that there will be no malfunctions.

My thoughts are that if the dress fits perfectly it should be just fine. Oh, and I did the jumping test, the hands up in the air test and the leaning over test. All good.
