squirrelly1982 :  I haven’t gotten married yet, but I did wear a nubra kind of thing (that I bought at Victoria’s Secret) for my prom and it worked great. It did slide around a little when I started to get sweaty on the dance floor, but nothing horrifying happened 🙂

A seamstress will also be able to sew bra cups into the front of your dress if you’d like. I know my cousin did that with her strapless dress and had no problems with it at all.

I wore a stick on bra and it made my cleavage GLORIOUS. way better than any strapless ever. Stayed on all night no problem. Just make sure theres no lotion or any other product on your bewbs when you stick it.

squirrelly1982 :  Have you considered a bra extender? It adds a couple of extra hooks so that your bra isn’t so snug. Really helps with the back crease issue 🙂

I have 3 x 3 hook and 3 x 2 hook ones in Black, white and nude and they’re fab 🙂

I got a Nubra at Macy’s and it worked fantastically.  Highly recommend.  I was super sweaty and it didnt move.  It also saved me from having a wardrobe malfunction when one of my boobs started to pop out of my dress during a low dip in my first dance.  I watched the video and was very glad the world saw Nubra instead of nipple…

I wore chicken cutlets!!! I felt like they gave me a better shape then just being free in the cups lol. I wore them to a fitting and left them on all day to make sure they would be comfortable and stay on before the actual wedding. I also thought it was really comfortable (im a B cup). I had no issues the day of, but I definitely recommend putting them on and wearing them beforehand.

squirrelly1982 :  there is no way sewing in cups takes more than a couple days. it’s a million times easier to do than taking a dress in or even making a bustle. you may have to pay extra to make it a rush order and move it to the front of the line, but that’s all.

as for stick on bra.. I wore one before, a knock off from amazon. I’m considering either it or sewn in cups for the wedding. which is in 1 week, fwiw. (I’ll decide by Monday and take it in if need be)

I wore a nu bra for my prom years ago and idk if it was just me but I remember when I took it off by boobs reaked of sweat and plastic. 

I think you can still get cups sewn in or try a low back bra

chicken cutlets sometimes fall off/ get unsticky if you dance or sweat.  


check these out instead –  they are 4x stickier   –  i wear them clubbing and they dont fall off. I can literally stick it to a full waterbottle and pick up the water bottle with the glue-  they are that sticky!
