    lol this is kinda silly...
    my dress fits perfectly so I don't need any alterations so I don't want to bother with getting the built-in cups. the dress is strapless and has a corset back where its all open. So I don't know how to get more lift. Anyone have any ideas??

      Tape! I use tape more than strapless bras. They have clear duct tape that works good because it stays stuck if you get hot and sweaty, yet is clear so just in case you have your dress shift a little and some tape happens to show, it's not ugly grey duct tape that pops out.

      I have to say, there are sometimes that it's not the most fun to take off at the end of the night, but it sure does it's job well throughout the day/night!

          Oh that sounds painful, pulling tape off my skin... I am sure it works well... I don't know if I could do it

            I agree with Raychel, it's an old pageant trick and it does the job well! Just make sure you don't have lotion on, because the tape won't stick as well...It does not feel great taking it off, but it's only for one night...Also, if you go with this trick, make sure you spot test a piece on your skin to make sure you won't have any sensitivities... No one wants a rash on their big day:) LOL!

              I've never heard of using duct tape! How does that work exactly? Do you wrap it around you just under the breasts? Does that really hold them up I'm so curious about this now!!!!

                There are those stick-on cups that you could try too, might be less painful than tape!

                  As funny as this sounds, you do have to practice to get to where the "end product" looks like it's supposed to! I have tried those stick on cups before and for me they just don't work. They don't stay on as well, and sometimes they just don't look right with certain shirt or dresses. But that's just me.

                  Get a good strip of tape, long enough to where it will reach all the way cross the underside of your breasts, but not too long to where the ends up the tape will show under your armpits and outside your dress.

                  Bend over and start the tape roughly 3-4 inches down from your armpit.

                  Sweep the tape down and under your breasts while holding your breasts in and up (for lift and cleavage), then back up to the same place you started on the opposite side (roughly 3 inches down from your opposite arm pit)

                  The idea is that the tape should have a little bit of a U-shape (starting on one side underneath your armpit, going down under your breasts, then back up to the other side underneath the other armpit)

                  I don't go all the way under my breasts (to where they're hanging over the tape), because I guess depending on what size you are, it doesn't really do anything to help at all. When I tape across the girls I try to just hit the bottom of them (just under the nipple) so it lifts them up. I also usually use a couple to a few strips of tape so I get them just how I want them! ; )

                  MObride09 maybe you can explain it your way too, since I may have rambled too much for anyone to understand!

                    thanks so much for that explanation Raychel! Also, MObride, good call on the spot test. Last year in mexico I found out I was allergic to pineaple after having one of those yummy drinks, and then having a huge rash on my chest. Hopefully won't happen with the tape :) Hardware store, here I come!

                      Haha I figured out after I read it twice! Its just getting the visual I am struggling with, but I'm sure it will make sense once I try it! Thanks very much!!
