I’m curious to see what others did for a bra/underwear (if any) under their dresses! My dress is backless and it has spaghetti straps and a v neck. (See photos) I have push up cups sewn into it now because I ordered it that way but they’re too cone-shaped for me so I was planning on having my seamstress sew in different more natural ones. I also wanted to wear those gel cups AND the cups that are sewn into the dress to help me fill it out more but I didn’t know if this was even a thing??? Lol! I’m lost! I was gonna use the stick on ones but my dress is so thin up top!
We have the same thing going on. I ended up adding a thin cups sewn inside the dress. The dress came with push up cups and it made me rather insecure. I still wondering how I can bring the “girls” closer together to make a nicer cleavage. Maybe I have to go back to my seamstress and ask if she could sew the neckline closer together. Did you talk to your seamstress about it yet?

Cone shaped belongs to the past 🤣 You can actually cut them out yourself and slide in those removable cups that came with some bras, just to give you a better idea. I cut my cups out before I had my first visit at the seamstress, because it looked so terrifying. It was so thick, like those bras that added 2 cups at Victoria Secret. My adult daughter said I looked like a p*rn star with those push up cups, and I agree. I think natural looks better. And I did see some pictures posted on social media where the brides are in awkward position and showed the cups slightly 😬 Maybe a fashion tape is needed too.
Your seamstress should be able to help. Mine put the cups in off to the side a bit so I had coverage and they created a push up effect. Too much push up for me, I wound up having them removed but if it is volume you are going for that may be your best option.
I had two sets of cups sewn in mine. One in the natural place, and one that was more to the outer side to push them together. Worked wonders! I wore cotton nude underwear and nude shorts (like spanx material, but not tight) to avoid chafing without also feeling like a stuffed sausage 😂
