The cup size can make a big difference. Usually if you decrease the cup size you should increase the band width. for example I can wear 32 B or 34 A but I cant wear 32A because it will be cutting into my flesh.

So if you tried on a 38C and it seems bit roomy in the cup, you should try on a 40B.. but definitely try it on before you buy

I have the same issue, so I’m just commenting so I can follow the suggestions and helpful tip. My first fitting was the other day and the dress fit like a glove which was great, but man I do have some serious back fat issues. I was all gung ho about either not wearing a veil or taking it off for the reception or trying a birdcage veil but now….um, definitely wearing it the WHOLE time, a super duper long back covering one.

How much support do you need? Can you do a low backed bustier or a VS stick-on backless bra (the kind that sicks onto your sides, so no band running all the way around).

I’ve heard of girls using double sided tape to tape down and kind of “stretch” back chub down under your dress. I haven’t tried it personally but it’s cheap, I like $5 a box so it’s worth a shot! πŸ™‚

If you haven’t worn it maybe you can return it?

dont worry until you try it on with the dress! i had the same issue, but i needed the smaller cups, especially in a strapless – i wear a 34D but i bought the 34C because i wanted the lift. the D fit great for everyday wear but it didnt give me the lift that i needed. luckily my dress came up far enough that you couldnt see my bra rolls!

@souliganprincess: i wore my veil most of the night, from the ceremony through the dances and cake cutting. i finally took it off when everyone hit the dance floor. i didnt want it all up in peoples faces.

I bought a bra at DB that I had to exchange for a different size and had no problems at all doing it. So you should be fine, as long as you kept the tags on it! πŸ™‚

Was it a bustier? I can’t remember if mine had tags or not.. but I did return it in the plastic bag with the barcode and it was fine.

I had the same issue with their bustiers – and with about 30 other longlines I tried. I finally returned it (they did refund me)

I ended up getting one from Frederick’s just like I had from my first wedding… no back fat at ALL, I think because of it’s V shaped back.

It’s comfy and hooks/zips in the front so I can put it on myself.
