A C cup is less endowed? Hahah, I’m an A cup and I’m wearing a strapless gown. It has a belly band that holds it up, plus it is a little tighter under the arms and my alterations lady is sewing in cups so I don’t have to wear a bra.

Hmmm I agree that c cup is not less endowed. Maybe it is so tight it’s making you flat? My seamstress suggested that I buy a bra that has ultimate push up. I have the perfect one in mind. You can have it sewn into your dress too.

I’m in between an A cup and a B cup and I was afraid that the dress wouldn’t fit since I bought a strapless.  But when it’s altered, everything will fit and won’t fall off.  They put in boning so that when I went to bend over nothing would show.  All you have to do is make sure you have a good seamstress and you’ll be fine 🙂

I agree, with some alterations you will be OK, sometimes the large cups have a lot more problems with strapless because the need to support so much more 🙂

I’m sure you’ll be okay, as a C cup is not really considered small. :p Have you tried the dress on to see how it looks on you?

Ideally your gown will have some boning to hold it up.  If not, you might wan to get a corset to wear underneath.  In any case, during one of your later fittings, make sure to lean over in front of the mirror to make sure that no one can see down your dress.  After all, you don’t want to be flashing Uncle Arthur in the middle of your wedding!

I agree a C is not small.  I’m between an A and B and I’m wearing a strapless.  The top has boning in it so I look like I have something.

I’m a 38D and strapless gowns look TERRIBLE on me! I need more support and they make my boobs look like they are spilling out over the sides. Or like a giant boob shelf. Not flattering at all. I wish I was LESS endowed for the purposes of dress shopping. I love strapless dresses but am having to go with a halter or something off the shoulder. I envy those women who look incredible in strapless dresses.

LOL, ok a C cup IS small to ME. But only b/c I am a full Dirty Delete. The only strapless I liked was a Maggie stress. My friend wore a Maggie too and she has small A’s and it gave her some mean curves. She was supported and it just looked killer on her body. Either way, your dress should fit best around your hips, where the weight of the dress will be supported, then zip snuggly up your back. PLUS, a Jim Hjelm gown will have an incredible amount of built-in support. Sorta the benefit of a couture gown so you should be a-ok. My friends all wore those jelly stick on boobs, too, to keep themselves proportioned and fill out their gowns and give them some lift

I am a C cup and I’ve never considered myself small-boobed–glad I’m not the only one who thought so!

@ejs- lol. those jelly stick-on boobs always scared the crap out of me. i’m a c/d, and in highschool i tried on one of those to possibly use for prom. it was like BOOB ATTACK, and it made them point towards the floor. lol. faaaiiiil.

there was also a girl that wore them, like, to a baseball game. at one point, she stood up, and you could clearly see the bra fall off and down onto the bleachers. she was a jerk, so i didn’t feel bad laughing. :p

I’ve always felt small-boobied and wore a 34A…then, since I was having a terrible time finding a strapless bra that looked good and was comfy, I got measured.  Turns out I’m a 34C!  Mind.  Blown.  So now, although I feel fan-freaking-tastic, I’m also shocked at how small my C cup appears to me.

FWIW, the bra I ended up with is a Le Mystere and it makes the girls look pretty killer, if I do say so myself.  I was torn between that and a Calvin Klein Perfect Fit.  The CK was prettier but I think the Le Mystere gave a slightly nicer lift.

Good luck!
