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 🙂

Good luck!


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.

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….

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)
