I’ve got a strapless wedding gown that’s cut straight across. I’m wondering how women make their boobs look so nicely rounded, like they poke just out above the top of their dresess? Is this a bra issue, or an alteration issue, or maybe just a body issue??

All about the bra! And alterations help too 🙂

@jules28: Yes, nice undergarments or have cups sewn in.
However, unless I have a corset on to squish me out the top, my A cups won’t be popping out of the dress. So I’ll settle for having just a nice shape to my top.

I have to wear a longline or corset bra to make mine pop like that lol. The boning under the bust area really helps keep everything where it belongs.

You could get the Nu Bra. They come in fabric or gel cups which adhere to each ta ta. The cups have a clasp in the middle which you can snap together for more “oomph”. The further out you place the cup, the more cleavage you get.
(I have nothing so it’s like multiplying by 0, but it didn’t make me look completely flat in my dress!)

@thejill: I second this. I love sticky bras and you can get really good ones at target for like $20. Great way to give you some “oomph” as thejill said 🙂 Some people have an issue with the stickiness but I don’t mind it at all.

I don’t recommend sticky bras for anything bigger than a B cup. Though I suppose if the dress is corseted, it could work.

Put on the dress, lace it some, then bend over and pull your boobs up to where you want them. Then have whoever is lacing you pull it tight! Instant cleavage.
Now, I’m, um, well-endowed in that area so creating cleavage wasn’t my problem, but I certainly could have had more boob showing. Once you pull it tight they stay there.

Hahahahaha thank you so much for this post! Thank you times a million! I’m so happy I read this. I used to be well… Proportioned you could say. Very thin and rather large chest. Had my daughter and poof, they are gone. I literally hadn’t been this small since elementary school. But it’s ok because when I had my daughter I begged for them to just dissappear, got my wish lol. But can’t say I don’t feel a bit like a 2 by 4 sometimes up front lol. It’s great to know there are secrets to not looking so tiny up top on the big day 😀

@jules28: I have the other end of the spectrum from some of the previous posters – I have a lot more than “barely there boobs” – but that’s not always the best look either…
Make sure your undergarments are the RIGHT SIZE!! 😉
We’ve all heard that women wear the wrong size bras, but it’s actually pretty true, and your size can change depending on the brand or the style, so make sure you try on the bra/long-line bra/corset. Most of your support (even when you wear straps) should be coming from the band that goes around your back. You should fill the cups – no wrinkles, no gaps, and no “spillage.”
If you have any doubts about the right fit shop at a place where there are fitters. Victoria’s Secret can be hit or miss on that, some department stores are actually quite good though. (Dillards for one.)
Also – make sure that you have your dress altered so it fits correctly and you aren’t trying to hold it up with your boobs… even a GREAT bra isn’t designed to support a wedding gown!

I have a a strapless dress with a straight top. After extensive research..I ordered these bra cups to have sewn into my dress. While I wasn’t trying to make the girls pop I’m sure they could be adjusted for that look. For me they really give the girls some lift.. for reference I am a 36c. Hope this helps.
