I’ve fallen prey to a strapless wedding gown. After swearing I wouldn’t. I’m nervous about undergarments. My dress has some light boning in the bodice, but the dressmaker is recommending wearing something in additiion for support. What do you do to ensure your strapless bra/corset doesn’t ride up for a little peep show? The last thing I want is to be preoccupied with whether my bra is potentially showing on the big day. I would love to hear how others have dealt with this.

My seamstress is sewing a corset into my dress along with some cups. I am a small busted girl and need a little help, but I don’t see why you couldn’t sew something into your dress too.

My seamstress sewed cups in my dress. I had a fully body bra/corsett on underneath as well. I say ask if they can sew something inside I am sure they can come up with something!!

My seamstress recommended getting a good fitting strapless bra. Then bring it to the fitting and she will sew loops inside the dress for the bra to go through so that it can’t ride up over the top. She prefers this over the cups sewn in.

Being rather cleavage challenged, my seamstress not only added padding inside the dress, I also bought a corset bra. I tried sewing a strapless bra into the gown but just couldn’t get it to sit right once I actually put everything on. So I sewed velcro onto the corset bra and into the gown. This way I could adjust where the gown and bra met for a better fit and helped hold up the weight of the gown.

ALong with the bra corset, I am using dress tape. That will keep the dress from going anywhere, which in turn will make sure the bra stays covered. 🙂

My gown is not strapless but is a full body corset. My seamstress suggested from the start built-in bra. No worry about peak a boo!
