OK, so I’m a cup size B and I need some suggestions on a bra that can make me look like I have something to work with! haha My dress can’t get any tighter than it already is at the top, but the chest part still has extra room…. I had a strapless bra on too, which didn’t do anything for me. I’ve looked at a bunch of long line and bustier type things online, but just wondered if any of you in the same boat have tried something that works for you!

My friends all used those jelly bra cup things–they add a size

I know some girls who wear these things that they call “chicken cutlettes.” Kind of like what EJS was describing. They’re these little jelly things that you fit into your bra. Just do a Google search and you should be able to find something.

I would talk to whoever is doing your alterations, she can probably sew padded cups right in the dress, so you wont have to worry about a bra at all.

I’m doing a long-line bra with takeouts because I’m even smaller than you!
They’re really cool.. When you first put them in your bra it feels a little silly, but in about 5 minutes they’ve adjusted to your body temperature and it just feel like a natural extension of you, except better!

@lemilie – i love that website!! LOL low beams hehe…. I use the “cutlets” sometimes in my bra with certain dresses, but I just can’t imagine them working that well with a strapless bra…. and having the pads sewn into the dress, I already know that won’t even put a dent into this problem haha. There is just so much extra space in there! Maybe if I have cups sewn in, use the jellies/cutlets with a pushup strapless. And if all that doesn’t help me, I guess I have no hope! haha

I think you’d be surprised – try wearing them with the strapless and see how it feels. I’ve actually only worn them with a strapless bra.. but it’s all a matter of what’s comfortable for you!
