I wouldn’t sew cups into the dress, usually they can be noticed with a flash of the camera.  I think that you should try a regular stapless bra with the dress.  Also, you might want to check the dress since it already has boning.  Mine had cups in it already so I went nekkid under my dress.

With all that beading you probably don’t need anything in there. You won’t be able to see through the dress and you DEFINITELY don’t need to worry about popping out of your gown with a corset back. I’m a Dirty Delete and I was laced into mine really tight. My dress had beading on front. The bra just added bulk.

Get your mom to lace you in, hold yourslef up while she’s tying it, and they stay in place =]

The self booby grab is in all my dressing photos unfortunately. But there really isn’t a way to avoid it!

Something else that helps is if you possibly add some extra boning to hte inside of teh corset- a little bit more structure to the corset will create lift and support, and will also sit more snuggly above your hip so the dress will slide downwards less

Honestly, I also have a Maggie dress with a corset top and a bra or cups might not even be necessary.  I’m… blessed… and I don’t even think I need anything up top!  If anything, just go with a regular bra on and ask the person doing the alterations for suggestions!

I won’t be using a bra.  Just the Lift, grab, lace up method above.
