I had cups sewn in and it was great – all I wore were panties underneath my gown! I had the alternations done at the bridal shop where I purchased the dress, and they had several cup sizes I could try on during the fitting and also supplied the actual cups.

Your seamstrist should have the cups

I didnt have cups sewn to my dress but rather sewn into the bra I wanted to wear. In any case the seamstress provided the cups after trying a few to find the right size. She didn’t seem to bat an eye and just pulled them out of nowhere during my first fitting. Magic!

I’m small chested (A-cups) so I need some padding.  I was about the buy the cup that you would find at a craft store but I needed something more than those little things.  So I used one of my old wonder bras and cut off the straps and asked my seamstress to sew it in.  It worked great!  My dress was a corset in the back so that’s why i cut off the straps so it wouldn’t show.

I was told if you need extra support, then the best idea is to use one of your old bras because you know you fit into them.

Oh, my dress was also a Maggie Sottero dress. 🙂

I had bought bust supplementing cups a few years back at Walmart (to go from A to B cup). I never did end up using them for anything but they worked perfectly to be sewn into my dress.
