(Closed) Help! Wedding dress cups showing through front of dress after alterations :(

  • poll: Bra cups: where were they sewn into your dress?

    On top of the inside lining- touching your skin directly

    Inside the dress lining with fabric covering it- not visible when you look from behind the dress

    Well I had a whole bra sewn into my dress and it was literally sewn onto the inside lining directly, the dress was then stitched to hold the shape around my boobs so that the dress moulded along the bra cups – but definitely no boning or cups could be seen through the fabric (mine was heavily embellished lace though). 

    Can’t exactly comment how yours needs to be done without seeing the dress and how it fits on you right now, but you shouldn’t have to accept what you just described.

    I always sew them inside the lining (touching the skin).  It makes for better support anyway, in my opinion.  Nothing wrong with asking her to change it.

    You could always try a stick on bra like nubra? this worked better for me than the sewn in cups
