Have cups sewn into your gown and don’t wear a bra.

If it makes you more comfortable, I think that you should have cups sewn into the dress!

they have advesive bras that still give some lift! I actually bought adhesive cups and attached my strapless bra to it with a few safety pins for a wedding I was just in. It worked really well for keeping the strapless in place! I’m only a 36A so they don’t stay up lol either the adhesive bra alone or the combo would work well I think. just avoid adhesive bras that only stick to your sides under your arms, they pull! the full adhesive cups are much more comfortable

Get the cups! I’m pretty flat-chested (32B represent, woot!) and I’m actually having TWO sets of cups sewn into the dress (I should probably be embarrassed about that, but whatever). One set fills out the dress and the second set pushes them up a bit to give me some cleav. I was really worried about bending over and people accidentally seeing my boobs, but the second set of cup fixed that!

@babyface2390:  Haha yay! Double cups FTW! Good luck with your alterations! I didn’t get my dress at David’s, I got it from a thrift store actually — all the nearby bridal salons donate some of their last-season dresses to this thrift store, which sells them for $50 a pop. The dress I picked was about 3 sizes too small on me, so I had a corset back and privacy panel put in. But I think that it should be fine with the zipper too, as long as all your other alterations are correct! Post pictures next time you go for your alterations! 🙂

Get cups sewn into your dress.  Most alterations places do that for a minimal cost.

Adhesive Silicone Bras (Dreamshapers FeatherLite PushUp Bra) from La Senza work for me.


I’ve been iffy about it at first wondering it might fall off me but after co-worker raved that the more you get sweaty, the more it adheres to the skin, I got one myself to try. She also claimed she she uses this everytime we go clubbing. So far, I haven’t seen bra on the floor LOL

I have it in nude and used it on my bff’s wedding 2 years ago under my convertible bridesmaid’s dress. It never fell off me considering I sweat on her destination wedding under 37 degrees C high. 

The only challenge with this bra is finding whereabouts to stick it as it has a tendency to make your instant breast lift looking fake.

Good Luck!


EDIT *lift* not a breast life LOL
