You might be more comfortable just having cups sewn into the dress, then no bra would be required.  I would keep your appt. and bring the bra you have.  Try it with the dress, and maybe try having cups pinned in.  If you need to go up a bra size you can, but this way you will know if the bra fits right under the gown.  If it doesn’t you’ll have a better idea of what to buy.

Well, I’m an A cup (so ain’t nuthin moving around under there, haha) but I’m still wearing a bustier because I like that tucked-in feeling that everything is secure!!! Even with cups sewn into the dress 🙂

If your dress is going to hold you together on its own, then it’s really just a matter of what you’re going to feel most comfortable in.  And if your dress WON’T really hold you together on its own (I know when I’m not paying attention, I tend to let my tummy out, so I love my boned hip-length bustier), then structured undergarments can be a life saver!  So if you want to go with the larger-sized bustier, you may want to reschedule your alteration appointment. Or, just go through it with the smaller bra but make sure to let them know that they shouldn’t take the dress in to gasp-tight proportions — just a comfortable fit for now.  They’ll see how the bustier is fitting and be able to adjust themselves accordingly. Ain’t there first rodeo, know what I mean?
