    I guess it’s a matter of personal preference.  I would go no push up.  You look like you “fill out” the dress without the push up bra, so I wouldn’t go over the top (so to speak).

    @nanty7891:  I think you need a happy medium. You should look for a better push up with more subtle padding (so that your breasts aren’t spilling over the sides of the gown). But the top of the dress is way too tight without the push up.

    What about foregoing the bra entirely and sewing push up cups into the dress?

    I much prefer without – your third photo is much more classic looking and you want your guests looking at you and your dress, not your twins!

    @MlleFabuleux:  I agree with happy medium! The push up does gie the dress a good shape from the side but from the front it looks a bit much.

    I’d vote for the push up, but only because the dress looks too tight without.

    @nanty7891:  I would also recommend taking your dress to the seamstress to get the top of the corset altered so that it’s not so tight. You can do it in such a way that it still stays nipped in at the waist. Otherwise, I prefer the sewn-in cups or no bra at all. The push-up is too much for my personal preference, and I also don’t think you look comfortable.

    I agree that it’s a matter or preference. The push-up looks great, but I personally wouldn’t be comfortable accentuating my boobs that way at my wedding with parents and grandparents in attendance. That’s just not where I would want eyes to go. But I’ve noticed most bees feel differently. In any other dress for a different occasion I would love that look.
