A few questions for the Bees who had cups sewn into their gowns:
- What kind of cups did you have sewn in?
- How much support did they provide?
- Were they flattering? Did they give you much of a cleavage?
- Would you happen to know if it’s possible to have gel cups sewin in?
Feel free to post photos of your dress

Dress had the support, I wanted them for some lift
A bit of lift, not a whole ton as I didn’t want to “spill over” Yes I think flattering
I’m not sure about the Gel, you can ask your seamstress 🙂

I’m getting cups sewn in, so I haven’t seen them “in action” but damn did it make a difference just by placing them in there. I tried on my dress without them and then the seamstress told me to place them in so I could get an idea. I could definitely tell a difference. However, if you want some serious cleavage, I would suggest getting them doubled or wearing those sticky boobs (chicken cutlets) as well as having cups sewn in.
And yes, gel cups can be sewn in. They are a specific kind though (Dritz, sold at fabric stores like Joann Fabrics). They are specifically made to be sewn into clothes. This is exactly what my seamstress told me to buy. (they’re cheaper to buy on your own and then have them sew them in)

I got cups sewn in and Im a DD-DDD. They definitely make my dress more Va-Va-Voomy! They are also super comfortable. I didn’t want the hassle of pulling up a strapless bra all night. I’m not sure what “kind” they were… but they were specific for my cup size from the seamstress.
I couldn’t recommend them more!

@kate_goat: and @Elky: Thank you!!
@IzzyBear: Lol well I definitely want serious cleavage, because I’m terrible like that, so that’ll be something that I’ll have to talk to my dressmaker about. And thank you for telling me abotu Dritz!
@Lori2026: Thank you! I’m a D cup so I was a bit concerned about whether sewn-in cups would provide me with lift and support but you’ve just alleviated my worries!

@Miss Circe: My dress is very supportive that the seamstress and I decided it really didn’t need cups. I think it depends on your dress and chest size. I’m a small C and the dress really holds the girls in place by itself.

I’m only an A cup, so the sewn-in cups were there to fill out the top of my dress.

I’m pretty small so I didn’t need much support but mine were standard padded cups. Does your dress have straps? Cos that is what will probably make the most difference. Straps kind of hoist the girls into place, lol.
I haven’t ever heard of gel cups being used before but definitely check with your seamstress if that is what you want

@Cyri: Hehe I’m having sleeves so there will definitely be something there to give extra support lol. I hadn’t heard of gel cups being used either until I read about it on another thread here so I wanted to see what people thought of them and if they made a big difference.

How “structured” does your dress need to be to use sewn in cups? Mine has very little. Is that a problem?

I also wanted to add that my dress had boning, so it was quite structured, but I’m not sure if that makes much of a difference if you’re just adding one set of foam cups. They are fairly light.
