Victoria’s Secret makes a covertible bra with lots of padding that does low back. I own one and it will go a lot lower than what the model has on.

I also found some good link for some mondo-padded sew-in cups.


I found that site when I was looking for sew-in pads for my dress.

My dress is open back too–and the alterations people told me that they can add almost an unlimited amount of padding to the bust area. I have two cups, one smaller sewn into a larger one, to make the top fill out properly. I’m surprised your alterations people didn’t suggest this themselves.

The NuBra might also be an option.

I tried one out with a prom dress once, but didn’t end up using it. There was nothing wrong with the actual bra, it worked really well, but going braless ended up working better (I was looking for a little support on a lower cut/low back dress).

You can usually try them on at Victoria’s Secret.

I’d try taking it to another seamstress and see if they can add extra cups.

@babyboo: I just bought a NuBra, wore it to our engagement shoot and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It’s a good thing they put on the package that it’s not meant to replace your normal bra, because I’d be wearing it every day for the rest of my life otherwise.

Not a lot of oomph though – a traditional bra pushes your breasts up from beneath, but the NuBra almost pulls them (it’s sticky) up from above into shape, so there’s no padding or anything. You can get cleavage by putting it on further apart and pulling them together (the two cups clip together after it’s on), but that won’t add actual inches to your chest.

ETA: I just looked on NuBra’s website and they have more options for push up and such. They’re more expensive online though – I bought a non-push up one at Macy’s for $36. Online they seem to start at $45. Not sure why the difference…

What about chicken cutlets?
