Ick! Yeah I would go with the cups then if you thought it felt good and looked good. The dress will be tight and it will stay up if she does her alterations right.
There IS a right and a wrong way to put on a dress, and one thing I do wish is that when I went to the bathroom a few times, we just unzipped and re zipped to put it back in place, it would have prevented the constant yanking 🙂

I haven’t gone to try any longlines yet. But I’m pretty sure that is the direction I’ll be going. I’m a 34DD and after talking to my seamstress we agreed that the cups just won’t have enough support. But my dress is strapless, so having those straps on yours might help. I just really don’t want a crease to show up in my gown because the weight of my boobs on the dress. I’m probably going to have a longline sewn into the gown so everything will stay put. Have you looked into Va Bien bras? http://vabienusa.com/ they have some that seem like they might be more comfortable. I’m gonna try them first.

I thought longlines added bulk. I had cups sewn in and then wore Spanx to deal w/ smoothing out.

I am having cups sewn into my dress. I did the same for the last bridesmaid dress I wore, and it was fantastic! The alterations were great (and my wedding dress is coming from the same store) so everything fit very, very well. It was awesome to not have to worry about a bra showing, or not having enough support. However, it sounds like you have more going on up top, so maybe that won’t be a good option for you. Tough call!
