    Re: Corset or bra?

    I want to know why v-necks are soooo low! I wear them because I like them, but I end up wearing a cami underneath to take the cleavage down a notch. I just can't imagine who'd want that much cleavage in a t-shirt!

    Yep, always happens to me!!  It looks perfect everywhere else, but then I look at my boobs, and it looks like I'm shoving them in.  Looks ridiculous.

    Re: Corset or bra?

    I bought a cute v-neck black dress that I had been planning on wearing to work.  I don't even remember trying it on when I bought it.  I put it on last week, looked in the mirror in horror.  "Um, where do I think I'm going... a club??".  Yep, took it off, put on a cami, and put it back on. 

    Crazy low!

    Surprisingly I got a great Betsey Johnson jersey dress that's v-neck and it's totally office appropriate. Why is it that this dress by an "edgy" designer shows less skin than the t-shirt I bought from Target??

    Who knows, but you're totally right!  I bought a couple of those v-neck t-shirts from Target, too.  They're SO low.

    Well, I guess if we were all Playboy models, this wouldn't be an issue.

    I say do the cups! There is nothing worse than being in an uncomfortable bra!! You'll be so hot in the dress alone!   I got cups sewn in, $30.  My dress was also tight at the waist so it wasn't going anywhere.  See what your seamstress has to say.

    I think I'll literally get rid of 1/4 to 1/2 inch of padding if I go without the coreseted bra.  Even having it on for an hour makes me hot.  I keep thinking of how hot I'm going to be even though my wedding is in October.  I'll be hot that day, I can just feel it.

    So I had a dream last night that we all met at a bar.  Everyone was really nice, but you all had HUGE boobs!  I think it was from reading this thread.

    LOL!!

    I find ALL tops are difficult when you have big boobs!  I can't wear high-necked things because it looks like the girls are hanging down to my waist (even though they don't!) and many v-necks are too low, or they're those v-necks that overlap in the front - which only work when the overlapping part is sewn together which it hardly ever is!  I do tend to wear v-necks mostly, ones that are not low enough to show cleavage, because I feel like they are more slimming.  but in general, tops that fit my chest are way to big everywhere else.

    Regarding dresses - I do find that double-stick tape can work wonders!  One of my biggest pet peeves is when I'm wearing a semi-low cut top and have this HUGE cleavage line because the girls fall forward and press togehter.  (sorry, is this TMI?)  Now that I've discovered double sided tape, I put a strip of it inside each bra cup and it sort of holds them off to the sides, preventing that overly dramatic cleavage line that I don't like.  It looks much more tidy and proper, less "clubby".  Worth a try!  I did that with my wedding dress and it kept me from feeling self-conscious at all about the v-neck.

    p.s. i forgot to look at my strapless bra last night... sorry!

    heatherv1211, that's great advice.  I hadn't even thought about double-stick tape!!  That's one of my problems, too.  When I lean over, and my boobs squish together and make cleavage that looks like a bum.  I don't like that.  I like pushed off to the side cleavage, too, if that makes any sense. 

    I'll try the double-stick tape, too!

    [QUOTE]I HATE strapless bras with a passion. I say go with the corset, Goodness. When I was in my brothers wedding I wore one and it held everything up all night!
    Posted by Peonie[/QUOTE]

    I'm with you.  I hate strapless bras.  I feel naked, and I spend half the night tugging at it.  I actually look and feel better going without entirely.  However, I love my corsets.  They keep me up, force me to stand up straight, and make me thinner.

    With that said - I am far smaller than a DD, which could make a difference.

    FWIW, I can tell you that those stick-on cups are entirely useless.  So, if you were even briefly considering those - don't.
