  1. Wedding season is here and we have many of you lovelies asking about the best breast enhancers for a wedding dress, so here we go...

    The first thing to consider when buying a dress is...will you be able to fit a strapless bra inside.  If you are choosing between two dresses and one will allow a strapless bra and the other won't, then ponder no more and go for the one that will.  When you are able to use one you have so many more options for an enhancer, which will only help you down the line.

    The logic for this is simple, enhancers need good support in order to do their job.  If there is nothing for them to push against then they can't push you up to give you a lovely shape or killer cleavage and if they are not held in well they will jiggle around and cause all sorts of problems.  That said, a strapless bra isn't the only option.  Is the dress is very tight, boned and has very good support at the bottom of the cup then you may like others certainly be able to wear one.  Don't despair, just give them a try, and take advantage of our returns an exchange policy.

    Lets assume first that you are wearing a strapless bra, your dress is quite low-cut, and you need some uplift to maximise your assets.  Styles for this would be style 6 for smaller frames, and style 5 for frames of 36" upwards needing a noticeable change.  If you need a bigger change, and perhaps a bit of filling out of the corset cup as well, then go for style 7 in the smaller or bigger size depending on your frame.

    If it is just filling out of the cup that you need, then go for style 8 or 9 in either size depending on the level of filling out you need.  Style 8 and the smaller style 9 are also great if you are unable to wear a strapless bra as they sit over the breast, allowing the breast to hold them against the breast and help hold them in.  If you need a big boost then go for style 9 in the bigger size which will help fill out a dress with a breast area that is a lot bigger than you need.

    The big thing to remember is that the level of impact is also affected greatly by the size of the bra.  If you have a strapless bra that fits you well, then you will probably be able to fit styles 5 and 6 in without upgrading, but any bigger than that and you will benefit from a strapless bra with a bigger cup size.  Buy the enhancers first and then take them with you to get the best fit.  Strapless bras have a lot to contend with holding up your breast and simply cannot cope if too much extra weight is added.  Getting a bra that works well with them could make all the difference to the look and how well you feel it is all held in.

    Now go forth and be confident on your wedding day. Know you look stunning and enjoy your day the way you should.
