Does anyone know a brand for harder & larger bra cups? I ordered a pair from bare necessities, they were the only ones marked DD, but they were too soft.

my advice to you, because buying larger bra cups is so difficult (yeah I know I am larger, sigh ....glad men like them really, BUT can be difficult to "maintain")

buy a bra in the cup size you need that is firm and supportive in black, white or nude. if someone is sewing your dress, they can easily take the bra itself (minus the straps) and incorporate it into the body suit and dress.

I am going for a fitting tomorrow, and instead of a body suit, I am purchasing a full girdle because it has more support in all the areas of belly, waist and breasts. PLUS my seamstress can cut the straps and build the actual dress over and around the girdle AND it still is comfortable as it has snaps in the bottom.

the one thing I was not blessed with was big boobs...my mother has then and she says they are a curse,, so I am not sad about it...good luck! sewing in your own bra sounds like a good idea

The thing is, I know big solid cups exist, because both of the dresses I had made with a major US designer have them. They're perfect for me in every way, but I cannot find them online! And I have another dress I want to put a pair of cups into.

Could you ask the designer where she got them?

I asked, but the rep either didn't know or didn't want to answer. Maybe it's another dance industry secret like clear stuff on the back of hairpieces and necklaces.

I hate that!...why do they have to do that, in the end you will find out and perhaps not go back them in the future. I am sure if you bought a dress from them they would find the ones you want Roll Eyes

A big trend in lingerie these days is to make your own bras.

There are plenty of websites where you may find bra cups that can be used in a gown.

Here is a company in Hamilton, Ontario:  http://www.bramakerssupply.com/site2009/cart/shopdisplaycategories.asp

Not sure where you are geographically.  Just try an internet search for Make your own bra and see what shows up near your location.

Hope this helps.

You could also try to search Lingerine findings.

Thanks, I'm in US, but I ordered some cups from these guys. We'll see if they actually work.

I always only ever use a pre made bra.  Have had some bad experiences with bra cups - its so hard to get them even.  I always managed to look lopsided - not a good look Smiley  Bras are also easier because you don't have to worry about getting them sitting right - I have had bra cups sitting under my arm pits as well.  I have been sewing for a long time and still have problems with them.  I am about to start on my new gown and am starting to get nervous about it already.!!   - mummsie

believe it or not victoria secrets too..... just purchase a bra and dismantle. great for cups, shaping and sturdiness and well worth the money.

Or, for you larger-chested ladies, Lane Bryant.  I can't wear their clothes anymore, but their bras (Cacique is the brand name) are still the best I've found for bigger chests.  Comfortable, supportive, and they have a good selection of pretty ones too!

I got them, they're a bit on thin side, but I think it would be easy to double them up and then the support will be just right. I think it will still beat the idea of taking my regular bra and dismantling it, the bras I wear are mainly supported by shoulder straps, if those are gone, they're not going to support anything.
