Not a May Bride (married last sept) but thought I’d poke in!  Are you going to want to wear a crinoline with this dress? If so, some crinolines come with bands at the top (like the davids bridal fit and flare), and wearing a onesie might get a little complicated.  Otherwise, I think go with the onesie type thing!

Your dress is lovely!  I have a drop waist gown so I don’t have to worry about an underwear line as much, but I’m just going with a nude thong.  For uptop they are sewing in cups for me. While I’m a C cup I don’t have a lot of great natural cleavage, so I may even use some cutlets 🙂 to boost the vavoom a bit.  I’ve heard of some girls even getting 2 cups sewn in (on each side) to boost the cleavage factor.  Good luck!

I would get cups sewn in. They don’t offer much support but they will push you up. Since you don’t need the support that’s the way I would go.

I also have a sweetheart top and am a small boobs; I am going with sewn in push-up cups. I didn’t want to worry about my bra strap showing in the back ( my pet peeve in general) or readjusting a bra all night ( I have a key hole back on my dress). I have heard if girls getting more than 1 pair sewn in to give them a lil extra vavavoom as well. So far, mine have worked great and will know even more once I go for my 2nd fitting next week.

I hate the onesies – i find that they slump down and bring my boobs with them!  lol.  I opted for some spanx underneath and i bought a strapless bra that i really liked at Victoria’s Secret.  I go for my first fitting tomorrow and she said we can try with and without the bra.  I’d rather just wear the bra than have cups sewn in – i think i’d be more comfortable because i really like the bra and i just dont want to pay for any more alterations (i’m already paying extra to have my dress turned from a straight across strapless to a sweetheart).  FYI, the strapless i got at VS has a deep plunge, yet keeps the girls locked and loaded.  I’m not flat chested, so I can’t do those tiny little strapless pushup bras.  they had another strapless there that was almost exactly the same as the one i got, but it had padding to push you up – which looked ridiculous on me!  best of luck – just choose whatever you will be most comfortable in and dont worry about anything else!
