Any advice on what to wear for support on the big day? I wear a 38C. I tried on a corset and well, the 38 did nothing for control in my tummy area as it was too big there, but it pushed up all my back fat, causing a nasty bulge. Tried a 36 and although it fit my tummy area, of course was too small for my back. My dress is strapless and the back is kind of low. I want to wear a good bra or an alternative as my ladies need the extra lift.

If you want support have your seamstress sew in cups and then your favorite bra.

I had cups sewn in and it worked well for me! I had a good friend who wore a corset with a strapless dress, and it drove her crazy that from certain angles you could see the cups underneath her dress. I think she eventually ended up taking it off. I’m sure there are ways to fix that issue, but just something to be aware of.

I am small chested (about an A), and had cups sewn in to give me shape as without it, the boob part of my v-neck gave me torpedo boobs.The back was also illusion, so I couldn’t have anything showing.
I just went and got a strapless sticky bra (didn’t use the sticky parts) from Kohl’s, and that was sewn in. It looked great and was comfy.

Another vote for sewn in cups.

Sewn in cups. I don’t have my dress yet, but the bridal shop had me try on a dress in the same silhouette with the cups and oh my gosh I HAD to pre-order them.

The reason why I went with the silicone bra is because I had extra boobs pouring out of my sweetheart strapless dress (I swear it made me look an extra 15 pounds heavier). I wear a 34D and the silicone bra gave me enough support for the day, felt like I was wearing nothing, and didn’t slip at all 🙂 They’re not too badly priced so maybe try this out before paying to get cups sewn in, I mean you can always wear it to other events 🙂

I would go with a corset, but I think a backless bra would also work. However, if going with a corset and the regular sizes aren’t working for you, either get one custom made or skip it entirely. A corset that doesn’t fit properly will be horribly uncomfortable, or buldge.

I have a very low v neck, and bare v back. I am definitely having cups sewn in. Comfort is really important to me, and that seems like the easiest fix.

Life would have been easier for me (and cheaper!) had my first seamstress done sewn in cups. I bought multiple bras (including stick on ones that I will never use- illusion back dress) and finally took the dress to a specialty lingerie store (which I HIGHLY) recommmend. While I ended up finding suitable support there (and, they showed me Rago shapewear- ugly, but perfect and comfortable shapewear!), the second seamstress looked at my collection of bras and said “why don’t I just sew in cups- it will work better”- it was like the clouds opened up and the sun shined down. It made life much easier!

I used to use silicone ones all the time, but then one night I was dancing and the sweat made the silicone bra lose its stick and FALL OFF!! I switched to using these https://www.instantoutfits.com/featherlite-super-sticky-bra.html
they are waaay stickier than silicone ones and actually stay up. They give me insane cleavage too when I decide to snap the clip together. They are only $15 and I love them and will be using them for my wedding.

That looks great! thank you so much 🙂 Luckily I never ran into the issue you did but I really like the design of this one (and the fact that they offer a black option)!
