Well, I haven’t bought my dress yet but I can tell already from the dresses that I’ve tried on, that my smaller sized chest (my girls are a little sad in their little B cups) gets swallowed up in every single dress. I know that wedding dresses often have the cups sewn in and the form is there that makes it look like your boobs are filling it out, but I never like when you see a woman dance and her dress moves side to side and you can just tell that it’s empty in there!
I do have a chest, I’d like to have a little bit of cleavage and really have the dress hug me. So out of curiousity, what it the best thing to wear under your dress to help the girls out? A boustier? a regular strapless bra? Is there some special bridal contraption that I just haven’t discovered yet? lol
I’m not saying I want my girls hanging out, I just don’t want it to look like i have a formed dress that’s empty inside!!!

I’m a B cup, sometimes even an A when I lose some weight, and I had all these strapless options for my first fitting and ended up tossing them all and having the alterations lady just sew in some cups. They just push up my chest a little to create some extra cleavage and the dress is otherwise tight enough that when I move, it doesn’t move separate from me, if your dress is properly fitted, it shouldn’t do that side to side thing you mentioned (I hate that too!). Don’t fully judge by the samples, they aren’t melded to your body the way your personally fitted dress will be 🙂
Edit: PS one of the options I brought with me to my fitting was one of those stick on bras like PP posted and it did NOTHING for my boobs in terms of making them look awesome, lol, they were just super awkward

it depends on what type of dress you are going to wear, so you will have an idea what type of bra to get to maximise your cleavage

My cousin wore the Victoria’s Secret “Miraculous” (it’s the one that “adds 2 cup sizes”) and holy moly did it give her boobies!! I wish I had before and after pictures to show you because that bra really is “miraculous” lol

I would talk to your seamstress. I’m in a similar position as you. They can sew in support to give you the look you want.
I was relieved to not have to wear a bra under my dress. My hairdresser got married 2 months ago, and he posted this beautiful photo of his beautiful bride from behind looking over her shoulder. A gorgeous picture other than the fact her bra was higher than her dress. You could see it in their ceremony photos as well. I actually took that photo when I went to try my dress on to show my consultant what I didn’t want. She told me it was not a problem at all, and that I wouldn’t even need a bra under my dress.

- Wedding: February 2013 - Mansion House at the MD Zoo
I am wearing a long-line strapless plus chicken cutlets. I also have teeny boobs, and my dress is very fitted on top and I want to make it look like I actually have a shape.
Slight thread-jack: am I the only person who cannot put on a long-line bra independently? I can’t fasten all the hooks behind my back, and I can’t put it on backwards then turn it because it’s too long. Plus the cutlets. My mom has to do mine for me. It’s a little sad, and everyone is going to see my boobs on my wedding day. Oh well, most of my girls have anyway….

haha I don’t even know what a long line bra is!!! I dont’ want to wear something with too much padding because I don’t want it too look like i suddenly doubled my breast size overnight and have it be obvious… but i guess wedding dress material is different than regular clothing so extra padding might be needed to make your chest look the same size it does everyday. Extra padding would just keep the dress tighter to your chest and give you cleavage… am I right?? I will have to ask the seamstress about it when I buy my dress.

i say wear a push up corset. I would rather have the padding under the boob then sewn in the dress.

i am a B cup, so I have the same issue. I spent a ton of $ on a VS bra…only to toss it aside because they are adding cups, plus wearing the bra made my dress fit much tighter up top (almost uncomfortable)
