My dress has a very low back and is kind of a halter/sweetheart top, but definitley not a haltar bra appropraite the straps would show and i dont want my skin to be all ulled and un pretty I imagine haha
This dress also doesn’t make it look like I have much or any boob going on! I’m a B/C 34 so I think I should be able to make something of them. ha
I’m thinking maybe I can buy bra sew in cups and do it myself or have mom do it or hould I get it done prefessionally b/c we’re not pros or anything.. just crafty.
I’m also thinking about wearing the pasties that add a cup size, they look like chicken cutlets..
what did you do for a bra with a backless dress??

Would love to see the actual dress. I think I would see what a seamstress can do and have the cups sewn in.

@Lips: Just a warning for those sticky cutlet things… they will fall off at the first sign of sweat. So they may work for the ceremony but definitely not for the reception.

I would do the bra cups, don’t know if you and your mom could do it or not but I don’t think they’d be too expensive. If I end up needing my seamstress to put them in it will only be and additional $15…

I am getting cups sewn in mine and the semstress said she also puts additional boning in with them. Not sure how its done but she said it will “give your boobies a push”.

Sew in the cups! They’re amazing, ten times better than any strapless bra I’ve ever owned. First thing one of my bridesmaids said to me when the girls zipped me up on my wedding day was, “Your boobs look amazing!”

I did a nubra, which is one of the sticky bras, but it didn’t add any oomph – just cleavage (if you put it on further out and then pull your breasts together to clip it, instant cleavage!).
I found it has plenty of support and have never had trouble with it coming off – even when I sweat like crazy (like at the wedding).

@Gingersnap: I second the chicken things – as soon as you sweat, they’re off!

Thanks for all the advice! 🙂
I ordered the sew in ones I’m thinking I’ll take them and the dress to a seamstress to see how much!
@daydreamwanderer – what brand do you suggest?

@Lips:I bought the nubra. You can get it online, but I bought mine at macy’s, I think.

This backless strapless adhesive bra is awesome. I’m using it in Allure 8764, so you can get the idea of what I needed (completely backless). I was able to add a halter strap, but I could probably not use it and look perfectly fine. Highly recommended.
