What kind of closure does your dress have (zipper, buttons, corset)? Cups sewn in are great, boning can be so-so (metal is better because plastic will bend), and a corset back on your dress can help immensely. A longline bra or corset underneath instead is also a good choice.

I feel your pain 🙂 I am a 32Dirty Delete and chose a strapless gown. When I first went dress shopping and picked it out, I wore a longline bra (strapless) and it worked perfectly! I still had all of the normal support with underwire cups, and the longline bra didn’t move around at all. I definitely recommend bringing one when you go shopping, and a lot of shops have some there already for you to use.

Another 34Dirty Delete here and I have used a longline bra with no boning before and it worked pretty well, but it really depends on the dress. I am actually thinking of going braless in my dress… we’ll see how that goes! IF the dress is tight enough cups should be okay as long as they don’t flatten you out

It depends on the dress I think. Im a 38H and I have no problem wearing corset dresses without any kind of support. My grad dress was just a corset as well as the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress I will be wearing in Aug and thank god for that because otherwise I would have had to buy an expensive corset.

Ive never tried on a dress with a zipper before so Im not sure how they support.

Oh my god it is amazing! i am an au 12D but bought the 12C for extra cleavage :P, so comfortable and even though it has no silicone it doesn’t slip at all 🙂
