Did she say why she didn’t recommend it? Is it because if the style of your dress?
Im a 34DD, and I had cups sewn into my dress (corset back) and I just had my final fitting on Wednesday and the dress felt wonderful. I didn’t feel like I was going to fall out, everything fit great.
@FortiesFlare: She said that the gel cups are great – comfortable and you can reuse them again. But I’m wondering about whether they’ll shift around (i.e. at worst, peek above the neckline) or become unglued if I get sweaty, etc.
I’m pretty small so the risk that I’ll fall out is minimal. I want a little support but don’t want to feel fidgety.
Thanks for the input – sounds like your dress is coming together wonderfully!!!
I don’t have any input, but I am very curious to find out what people think of the stick-on cups. I’m not a fan of normal bras but sometimes a little something would be nice.
I am a 34D and I had my cups sewn in, it was very comfortable and gave me a great lift. I’d do it again in a heart beat! I do think that the bodice of your dress needs to be structured for it to work (so not a grecian/chiffon and something with boning works best)
hoping for a few more responses…
I’m also a 32B and I had sewn-in cups for my strapless dress… LOVED it. So easy and comfortable. I’ve tried those stick-on bras and I HATE them. The one time I tried them I was so uncomfortable after 5 minutes that I just opted to go braless.
Unless there’s a reason a sewn-in cup wouldn’t work with the dress (slinky material or something?) I would just have them sewn in. I was so happy not to have to deal with any type of bra under my dress.
I’ve used the stick-on bra cups before and didn’t have any issues with adhesion/slippage (I’m a 34C)…I do recommend trying them out beforehand to get the placement right, though.
I wear a 36DD and I got cups sewn into my dress. It was only about $10 to do at the alterations place and it gave me a bit more shape and was more comfortable.
I’m not a big fan of the molded bras just because I don’t find them comfortable in the slightest and I have huge issues with them slipping. Was there a reason that your seamstress was against putting cups in? Is it the shape of the bodice or something else?
Stick ons make my skin itch so I prefer sewn in
@chateau2013: I had a strapless gown but the back wasn’t super low. My left breast is a C cup and the right breast is a B cup. The gown was lined and I just had one cup sewn in to the right side. I didn’t have to wear a bra and had plenty of support. The dress also zipped up in the back. The corset tie up gowns tended to flatten me out in the front.
I’ve never had much luck with those types of stick-on gel bras, in my experience they offer no support and I always feel like they’re about to unstick and fall down my top. I’m a 32D fyi so it may just be better for smaller girls. I have sewn-in cups in my dress.
I’m a 32D. I had cups sewn into my dress and it was great. I’ve also used the stick on NuBra from Nordstrom. It worked for the low back, slightly sheer dress I wore it under. I had no issues with it coming off. In fact, it was a little painful to peel off even after a night spent dancing.
