NovemBride1415:  I think these are the chicken cutlets you’re looking for. Yes I have used them when I was a AA cup. You can get bras with pockets to insert them in and I think that works best or just insert them into your bra (buy one with a larger size cup). You can probably talk to your seamstress to have her sew cups into your dress to fill out the top. Google “gel bra inserts”… they sell them on Amazon too. (Later in life I gave myself implants so I could stop stuffing my bra and I was tired of being shaped like a pyramid lol… the chicken cultlets worked really well until then).

Your seamstress can sew cups in! They are very comfy and you won’t worry about them like cutlets (when I sweat, they slide off). I am very small on top and felt very proportional on my wedding day! My dress was completely backless so no bra options for me, plus I don’t really like wearing them anyway.

My bridal shop sewed cups into my dress.  You can do all different sizes for different amounts of lift and they can even do a “double cup” where they stack 2 to get the shape and fill right.  Don’t just “insert”somthing into your dress.  Get it sewn it.  It works great! 🙂

Victorias secret. 

Seriously… go now. I have tiny boobies that I love and am proud of, however, my dress didn’t fit right and I didn’t want to alter it. So I went and got a strapless bra from VS that ‘adds two cup sizes’ apparently. I think it’s called Bombshell.

It looked totally natural and like ‘me’, but it definitely helped to fill out the fabric of the dress. Good luck!! love your dress btw.

You will look amazing, don’t worry!! My seamstress pinned them in so I could get a better idea before sewing them, so you won’t have to make the commitment if you’re not sure. I also ended up losing more weight the week of the wedding AFTER my alterations were done and it still worked out okay! 🙂

I bought a strapless sticky bra from Kohls (didn’t iuse the sticky part) and had the seamstress sew it into my dress. Without them, or anything, the dress made me look like torpedo boobs and there was a huge gap… so not flattering. I had always tried it on with a strapless bra, so I knew something was needed.

I have small boobs as well. I have B’s. They sewed the cups in for me and now they look much bigger. If you do that plus chicken cutets I think youll be fine.

The grass is greener and all that. 🙂 I’m always jealous of small-breasted women. I had a breast reduction and still struggle with my DDs. I have to say though, even though my regular bra size is a Dear Daughter, the long-line bra I had to wear was a B cup. It was so bizarre. And they had to take the bodice of my dress in because it was gaping in front. I’m wondering if they make the dresses roomier in the bodice on purpose so that it can be sized down if necessary – hence the extra material on your dress? For what it’s worth, you look gorgeous and I’m sure with some minor adjustments, they will fix you up.

Your description of yourself is similar to how I see my shape – bigger booty, broad shoulders, and no boobies.  And, your dress is super similar to mine, especially in the bodice.  My seamtress had me put in some padded bra cups, and then actually pinned in the top of the bodice at the sides of the bust.  I had my final fitting yesterday, with the bra cups sewn and the bust taken in.  It fit very well, and while it didn’t give me cleavage, I looked like I filled out the top.  Wish I had pics to show you. I think an experienced seamstress will know what to do with it to make it work.
