small bust strapless dress- HELP! my wedding is in 2 weeks!

I was wondering if there are any brides or bridesmaids out there with a small bust that's wearing a strapless dress. Im flat as a board. At my first fitting I had to wear the chicken cutlets, a strapless bra and 2 corsets just to make it look like i had cleavage. I was considering taping my boobs, but I didn't know how. All I know is that I want to be comfortable and wearing all those things created a humongous gap between me and the dress. anyone have any advice? Please help!

I am an A-cup wearing a strapless dress. I have the Nu Bra. It's the silicone cups that stick to your boobs. It's fabulous! I swear by it. Makes great cleavage (didn't know I had any!) and it feels like real boobs. You have to put them on pretty far apart then you pull them together with the clasp. Kind of like taping but gives you great shape.

You can find them at Macy's and Nordstrom and on ebay


My seamstress also added push up cups to the dress and that really helped.

I'm "flat as a board" too and wearing a strapless dress.  At the fittings, the seamstress tried to get me to add a lot of padding to the bust to make me look like I have more shape, but I told her "no thanks" - this is how my body looks, and I'm cool with that.  I think people would totally be able to tell if I walked down the aisle with a new rack and previously non-existent cleavage lol.  She's just sewing some bra cups in, and it'll be good to go.


I've heard only good things about the Nu Bra, though, so if you decide to go that route, I think you'll be pleased with the results.

I bought those stick on silicone breasts for my senior prom. Be CAREFUL haha, When you dance and start to sweat a little they start to move around! By the end of the night I had to take them out because I would look down and one boob had moved to my belly button!

I was having the same problem, I posted it on ivillage and nobody commented to relate!  It is so sad to have the realization that your boobs are essentially nonexistent just prior to your wedding (mine is in two weeks too). :(


I ended up finding a solution to give me a little more cleavage.  I have my corset and added the adhesive cups that clip in the middle.  I ended up going to get an airbrush tan as a trial run, and not even thinking about it, I ended up with a fantastic shadow that helped immediately! Between the two additions I am feeling a little more confident.


Good luck to you, I hope you have a fantastic wedding!

For the Nu Bra- I wore it all weekend in Cabo last month. It was HOT. Not just hot but Africa HOT! And humid. I was sweating like you wouldn't believe. They stayed on all night each time I wore the bra. Haven't had a problem yet. BUT, you have to follow the directions really well. You must wash your skin and No lotion at all on your skin before putting them on or they will slip off and you must clean them right away after taking them off. I am buying a new set for the wedding to make sure it's new adhesive and it will stay all night.


It gives crazy cleavage!!!
