haha I totally understand Im all about the girls looking good. Ask her what she has to offer she might be able to add a few of them to give you some extra push

@PrncssDva: call her up and ask her about it before you go back. See what she can offer you to come up with… you shouldn’t have to figure out how to push the girls up all on your own when she is helping you with your alterations!

I agree, call the seamstress and ask her. Mine had both regular and push-up bra cups. They were just like the cup part of the bra but without the band. If you give her advance notice, then she could probably find those for you before your next fitting. I looked all over to find the right bra for my dress but it just wasn’t happening and I’m very happy now that I just have the cups sewn in–no bra with peek out, I don’t have to try to get it on, it was way cheaper, etc (the bras I was looking at were $60+ and the total cost for my alterations +steaming =$100).

Some long-line bras dip pretty low in the back, and they’re great at pushing up. They have the added bonus of helping keep the shape of your bodice in tact. 🙂

@Gemstone: i second the longline bra idea.  i picked up a maidenform custom lift longline bra that works perfectly with the back of my dress.   i’ve posted a pic of the back of my dress (complete with tan lines) to give you an idea of how low of a back the longline bra has.

@PrncssDva: I got mine at a maidenform outlet, but i’ve seen them sold at stores like Macy’s, etc.  You can also buy online from Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Maidenform-Womens-Strapless-Longline-Convertible/dp/B003BNZ4PY) or directly from Maidenform (http://www.maidenform.com/bras/styles/longline-bras/maidenform-custom-lift-strapless-longline-bra-09655)

I got my regular bra size and it fit fine.  The bra does have a bit of boning in it, so I’d suggest trying it on at a store and then buying where ever it is cheapest.  Good luck!

David’s bridal has their longline “torsolette” or whatever they call it.  They have 2 different ones, and I’ve tried on both, and the smooth one definitely had more support (I’m a 38 C or D depending)…  think they run around $40 and I see them brand new on ebay often.

Okay it’s $80 at DB but seriously, check ebay!

I am probably buying this:

http://www.orchardcorset.com/Lady-Marlene-986-Lace-Bustier-wFront-Zipper_p_14314.html

Because it has waist cinching and hip smoothing and garters AND a low back AND strapless support.  The garters are removable I think.  Oh and it’s around $22 right now on sale but it may be overkill for what you need. I think a low back longline bra will be fine if it’s solid and no flimsy cups, but here’s what I’m going with:
