I think sewn in cups would work just fine for you. Ask your seamstress to be certain. Pretty dress!

Pretty dress! Your seamstress can tell you about your options. I think a bra would be alright but if not you can sew in cups.

I am 32B so I know what you are talking about. My dress has fitted bodice with sewn in bra but still doesn’t give me enough lift. I recommend sewn in bra PLUS adhesive bra. If you are worried about you bra showing during your big day, you probably shouldn’t wear your every-day bra. There are a few posts on this board. I got one from Target and I highly recommend it. Sewn-in push up bra gives a little bit of volume and you get the lift from adhesive bra. I stick the adhesive bra away from each other on my breast, and then you close the clasp in the middle to connect them. One down side. The sillicone sticky bras look like two pieces of chicken meat and kind of gross me out. Other than that, I have nothing to complain.

dances123:  I’m also a 32/34 A and I totally regret not sewing cups into my dress! I went through all the options too and ended up wearing a contraption combined with chicken cutlets held in place with stick ons – omg…if I could only do it all over again. It all started shifting around once the day started and I started sweating / moving. I didnt want to sew cups in for fear of ruining my dress – dumb. Just do it you’ll be so glad you did.

I am a 34A and was planning on getting bra cups in my dress but my dress actually had bra cups built in so I didn’t get them. I highly recommend getting them. You don’t have to worry about them falling out or showing your bra straps in picture. I purchased a backless and strapless bra but it is so sticky and wasn’t comfortable. Just get the sewn in bra cups. It is so worth it.

I got cups sewn into my dress and it worked out great for me! (I’m a 34B/C) I didn’t have to worry about a bra poking me or digging into me under my dress (or pulling it up… I’m not always great with strapless). 

I would definitely recommend it!

I bought several low back bustiers for 40-90 dollars and the the thing that worked best at my fitting ( I brought them all there)was an $11 adhesive bra from target ! the seamstress cut off the adhesive sides and is sewing the bra in and it gave me a little bit of cleavage too! My dress is also backless, it was hard to figure out!
