I had cups sewn right in and I wouldn’t have done it any other way.

mle812:  I’m using a strapless bra. Once my corset is tied it will keep it all in place and no room for slipping.  I’m also a September bride. We are almost there Yay!

I’m having cups sewn in. Thats what i always do with my formal dresses. There is more than enough support and it’s SO much more confortable!

I’m planning on a stick-on bra!  My corset dress won’t be budging, so really it’s just a formality to prevent chafing, because I don’t have much going on up top

Sewn in is the best! Nothing to worry about.

I wore a seamless nude thong.

I’m doing sewn in cups with my corset dress. I’m not super well endowed so I don’t need much in the way of support.

FWIW, the consultant at my bridal boutique said not to wear shape wear with my dress because of the corset so I’ll just be wearing regular underwear.

mle812:  I picked out my dress on Sunday and I bought a Victoria Secret backless bra to try to get an idea of what I would really look like on my day. I liked it a lot, it gave me a good lift. I had it on for 6 hours and it stayed in place. I think they range fro A-D so if you like, that’s a great option. Here’s a pic.

I had to go with a real bra strapless as my dress was of the peg four days before my wedding. I didn’t have any problems other than at the night having red bra lines. NzoT SExy

All the dresses at my boutique had cups seen in already. I definitely prefer this!

I’m wondering if any ladies with larger/heavier breasts have had experience with this? I just feel like there is NO way a sewn in cup can support DDs.

BeeinBoston:  Can any of you ladies share a photo, if you have one, of the dress inside with the cups sewn in? I’m thinking I will have to go this route as well and would like to know what this will look like. Thanks!

juliaGG:  If the cups are big enough it should work fine I would never consider wearing a bra with a gown, cups sewn in or not and I am a 30gg. I just bought a very low back dress with cups sewn in and I feel very supported in it, OK I wouldn’t go for a run but its more than adequate support for walking around or dancing. I don’t think it is really about size though I am young and lucky not to need much support my breasts are naturally firm and well shaped I am sure there are some women with saggy b cups that need more support than me.

mle812:  I had a strapless sewn into my dress, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to wear a bra and would have had cone boobs (I need all the help I can get in that area).

I bought one of those strapless bras that have the sticky sides, so that was only partially there. I had always tried my dress on with a strapless, so my alterations gal just sewn them in the front and it worked great.
