I had cups sewn in and it was a great decision for me. It’s hard to ssay what will work for you. The only thing I caution on the bustier is if it’s even a bit uncomfortable it’s going to be amplified wearing it for 5+ hours under a tight dress. Whatever you do, make sure you’ll be comfortable!

I have sewn in cups in my dress and I am ALSO wearing a bustier… I really feel like I had no choice cos I am very curvy and dont trust going braless 🙂 I do echo PP make sure you find the most comfortable one, cos unlike other nights out you are going to be photographed a lot and don’t wanna be caught fiddling with your bra 🙂

I had the seamstress sew cups into my dress.   She also added an extra elastic band that hooks in the back to help the dress stay up.  I’ve had 2 fittings so far and I’m glad I went that route.  I didn’t want to have another layer under my dress since I tend to get hot and sweaty easily.   Plus, I’d be worried a bra or bustier would end up showing.

If you’re comfortable with going braless, I highly recommend it so long as it works for the girls.

If you want a bra that is going to make you bigger, I reccomend the incredible strapless bra from victorias secret. Its the reason I no longer need to have my dress taken in.

I am going to do cups as long as they look ok ( haven’t gone for alts yet). I hate messing with strapless bras and would HATE to wear a bustier. I’m a 34c so Im more on the busty end but I don’t have an issue with them staying… Contained lol. I think it kind of depends on your chest, dress and comfort level

My tailor said that if you are a C cup or under, you don’t need a bustier. I’m skipping it and keeping the cups.
