- Wedding: September 2015 - Beach
My wedding undies came in today (yaay?). But they fit kind of weird. I ordered a size up just in case. I’m usually a 40D, so I got a 42D. Put on the undies with the smallest clasp setting and the middle is fine, but my boobs just kinda… sit there.
But when I push the cups up with my hand, it fits correctly so I know its the right cup size
Coincidentally I’m going for my first fitting today so maybe it won’t matter once the dress is on me, but its still discouraging.
Any tips to get the cups to behave??

I have a couple of dresses that do that. The easiest solution I’ve found is to just use some clothing tape to stick them in the right spot.

If you purchased a 42 instead of a 40, the bra does not hold the cups close enough to your body.
A D cup in a 42 is also larger than a D cup in a 40. Cups incease in size as the band size increases.

If you went up a back size, you should have gone down a cup size, so instead of a 42D, you should really have got a 42C. That’s what I’ve always been told. Is your dress fitted and boned? You might not even need a bra anyway.

When you took the band up a size, you needed to drop the cup to a C.
