Hi y’all!
I’m getting married in 30 days!!!!
my dress at the back is low. Not super low but low enough I think you’ll see the bra strap. What are some bras I can wear? I want some push up and I’m a size D cup.

Thansk!!

    Are you able to have push-up cups sewn in to your dress?

    I'm a DD cup and while I did buy a bustier with a very low back, I feel it makes me look a little too busty with the dress so I will likely go without any bra. I did add some straps to my strapless dress and bought some fashion tape to make sure the girls stay contained. I'll find out in less than 2 weeks if it will work! LOL!

    Don't even wear one. Alter your dress so you're fully supported without one. If you get a low back corset type bra you may be too warm.

    You could do sew in cups and get your seamstress to do that for you or you could also do the sticky cups and then either way there are no straps or band around your back. The sticky cups I am not 100% if you can get the push up but possibly. Check bridal shops or La Senza or Victoria Secret

    If you don’t have time for sew ins because your wedding is so close, I believe i saw lazena carry low cut bras specifically for outfits like what you described.

    I had an illusion back dress so a bra was out of the question. I had cups sewn in and it was great! Highly recommend it.

    I agree about stick ons and sew ins, those are great options, especially in a wedding dress as the tops tend to be very structured and help hold the bra in place. Under my low back dress I wore a longline low back bra. If you have a specialty lingerie store near you that could be a place to check, department stores near me didn't have anything low backed enough for my wedding dress but the shop I got my bra from had lots of options.

    100% agree with sew-in cups! They can add as much "padding" in that cup as you want for push-up, and then there's no bra, no fidgeting, no band to dig in at all...

    I'm getting cups put in. No way I'm wearing a bra when I've got a corset... haha.

    I agree with Jennifer about sewing in cups. My dress is low back and v-neck so I opted to sew in cups. I initially wore a strapless stick on bra but it wasn’t comfortable and I worried about the bra showing. The seamstress showed me some cups they could sew in and when I tried it, it was really comfortable and pushed up more than the stick on ones.

    I never thought of that! Would that give some push up still? And were would you get the cups to put in?

    Okay thanks I’ll try to find one! I’ve heard the stick on bras don’t work well for larger chests.

    Stick on bras are amazing! you can adjust them so it gives you some push-up, and they have ones that will work for a D-cup! try finding the ones that don't just stick to the front, but kind of wrap around your ribs a little bit.

    Talk to your seamstress about sewing cups into the dress. that's what I will be doing (and my dress isn't super low back. but low enough that I would have to adjust a bra.
