I have a sweetheart strapless ballgown with corset. I’m in my 40s with Dcups I would be afraid that the girls would work their way to some sort of “freedom” possibly causing an embarrassing moment if I went with sewn-in cups. I am going with a low cut in back strapless bra. Use your judgement depending on the size of the girls on which way to go.

grace14:  I had a strapless one (the ones with the sticky sides but we didn’t use the sticky sides) sewn in. Worked great.

grace14:  Haven’t been married but I say if you can pull off the sewn in bra cups I would definitely go that route. Any time I wear a strapless bra I feel like I’m CONSTANTLY pulling it up. I also have really small boobs so maybe they work better for people who actually have boobs.

mrs.akjp:  They don’t.  If your boobs big enough to need a bra, then the weight of your boobs push the bra down, and you spend all night pulling them up anyway.  

Someone needs to invent better solutions lol.

It’s a good thing this thread has already started. I’m wondering if I should go with the sew in cups route too. I’m mighty busty (38H) and I just went in to look and try on the sample to my dress. Long story short, my boobs are like pushing against the top of my sweetheart neckline and if I bend over, they looked like they were about to spill out. The salon assistant tried her best to accomodate them by pushing them almost into the bodice (lower than the natural cups themselves) but I feel like it looks a little weird. Not only that but the alterations lady was in and she said that I might need straps for the support and that’s not what I had in mind. Do you ladies think that cups would help solve this issue or should I just go with being stuffed into the bodice?

grace14:  sewn in!  The separate bra might move and show in photos when you move- no bueno! And the extra thing around your torso plus the fact that strapless bras in general are just not comfortable is just not fun.  Not sure what your dress looks like – you could do a long line bra sewn into the dress as well.

grace14:  Ask the seamstress to provide them too, and then have them sewn in!  Some of the cheaper brands…well…they are cheap! And you want the ‘girls’ to look good!
