Larger busted - sewn in cups? bustier???
Posted 03 September 2008 - 05:18 PM
I tried on a bustier the other day, but it was SOOOO hot. My dress is 'thick' so I'm already going to be dying of heat. I really don't want to wear a bustier but I don't know what to do!
Help! Any other top-heavy girls out there who can give me some advice?!?

I was initially going to wear a bustier but when my alteration lady saw my dress she suggested the cups. I'm only a B so it worked out fine. The point is that we were able to slip the cups inside the dress and safety pin them to give an idea of the type of support. If your dress is tight fighting, which most dresses are I think you may be ok. Besides most dresses have several layers of fabrics that also help give support everywhere. You can always get the bustier and if it doesn't work out with the dress return it after the fitting.

What ever your most comfortable with! I do agree with you on the bustier, it's way too hot to wear one.

My dress right now is too big so it's hard to tell. I was looking at pictures we took when I tried on the sample dress and I think it looks fine. The sample dress and 'my' dress were supposed to be the same size but they ordered a size too big (and then said I must have lost weight and that's why it's so big - yeah right, don't you think ALL my clothes would be too big for me then? But anyways....)
It not like I have perky fake boobs so I'm just worried that it won't turn out okay. Right now my dress has a zipper back but I'm changing it to lace up so I thought that would work as a sort-of corset/buster and 'perk' them up a little. The lady said that a corset is just the same as a zipper though.

Finally, someone out there has my exact same problem. I am a 34 DD and I went for my fitting today. The dress is too big and she said I have to wear a bustier. The only other option was to have one made inside the dress.. The one she had in the shop is lace. So it wasn't so bad. I guess the thing for me is once I walk down the aisle and take pics.. IT'S COMING OFF.... So yes it's a little uncomfortable, but we have big bust and must accommodate.

I couldn't get a bustier because I am pregnant and would have been super uncomfortable. And, baby would have been squished. ha!
The strapless bra worked well for me....could this be an option for you?

I know this all sounds silly, but I was a Barely B before I got preggers and then well after a year of nursing when Noah was born... I loved my DD's... now im back down to nothing with no shape at all. Try it out with a strapless like Martha said it might just do the trick.. but keep in mind the elastic band.. my lady told me that's when you get some serious boob sweat and even for me I felt it coming on.

I'm a 36 DD maybe bigger. I need to go to a real bra shop that's really good and get seriously sized. Anyway, I HATE bras. I mean I am constantly uncomfortable and I even went to a surgeon just last month to talk about the Big Chop. (FI and I want to try for kids soon, sso I have to wait )
Anyway, I felt like my dress was thick enough (it's pretty heavily beaded) that when it's properly fitted it'll be plenty stiff enough to hold the girls up.
Then again, part of me is worried I'm deceiving myself. What if I'm constantly having to readjust?
IMO I would never wear a bustier because I hate bras so much that is just torture. But cups would not give support.
I think that a lace-up back should give more support than a zipper. Maybe your seamstress is losing it? She sounds weird! LOL
Let us know what you decide...

i was worried cups would hold up my Cs! Ha! i'm going with a strapless bra because my boobs are more wide than they stick out, if that makes sense. so i want to make sure the girls are in the right place!
