I actually really like the look of my dress without straps so I don't really want to add them, but I need better support for the girls. There is some plastic boning in there already, but I know from previous experience that it loses its shape when it's warm and supporting that kind of weight.
I have a corset that I tried with it, but it comes up too high in the back, its heavy (aka hot!) and makes sitting down an uncomfortable experience.
I've looked around but strapless anything in that size is hard to find. Has anyone found a good strapless bra for larger chested ladies?
Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

I normally wear an E and a C was actually a little big on me. Obviously I don't know exactly how well endowed you are, but it's worth a try if you are near one of their stores.

Or.....if I could just get motivated enough to work out more, I could get the girls down to a full C/small D if I could get to my goal weight and then this would be as much of an issue!! But nah...that would be too easy, lol.

I can't offer any bra advice as my aunt made my dress and sewed one in for me.
great to hear about a great bra cougs - it's nice to see that there's something good out there finally!!
I am so struggling with weight right now, it's ridic. I want to lose, but I just can't get motivated enough to do it. UGH! Am I the only one in the boat?

NEVER. not once. and when linds met me in chicago, she kept remarking, "those are some perky boobs, cougs" and i kept insisting it was just the bra, haha (it was!). THIS was the bra!
