| Rachelle, I'm leaning towards the cups just because I really can't imagine a 32B would fit me right when she told me I'm a 32C. She said I would just have to pile them in there. |
Yeah, I think your instincts are right about that one! "pile them in there" isn't really the advice I'd want for my wedding day!
| tammy your dress should hopefully fit you well enough that once you add the cups, the support is almost built into the dress. i am a little freaked out about this myself, since the sample fit me weird - i was constantly tugging at it. this was one reason i was scared to get a strapless dress - but i am hoping it all fits well once it's made for me! |
Honestly, your wedding dress is going to be altered so perfectly for your body that it will probably fit you better than any bra ever would! My dress did have little straps so the cup solution was perfect for me - kept my girls in place and I didn't worry about them at all. A good friend that got married the month before me had a strapless dress and spent ages trying to find a bustier or backless/strapless to wear under her dress...the seamstress finally talked her into the cups and it worked for her too...and she's acutally a 34 large C...sometimes a D. We were both pretty skeptical about it at first but it turned out great.
You may want to have them go ahead and baste in the cups when they do all the basting after your first fitting then decide what you really think about it. Once the rest of the dress fits you properly, you may feel more confident deciding to go "sans bra" ;-)
