Hello guys I need your help! (craftster people rock)

I have a formal event to go to on Saturday, and I want to wear a dress my mom made me.  i was suppsoed to wear it to prom, but my bra showed up under the deep v neck so i ditched it last minute.  i want to make it up to her by wearing it to my friend's debut.  here's what it looks like:

The dress fits fine, but I'm a nursing mom wearing a nursing bra, so it tend to show up with the deep v neck.  How can i cover up the bra and not look awkward?  I figure those who can't go braless like us would be able to help =) The dress is buttercup yellow by the way.  thanks! <30

This isn't what you're looking for, but if you aren't taking the baby, why not ditch the nursing bra for the evening and get one that's more appropriate for that dress? Just be sure to get it big enough in the cups to allow for some nursing pads in case of leakage. As much as i hate the pads with the plastic backing, it might be worth using those to ensure having no embarrassing leakage. HTH, and have fun. Smiley

Another thing you could do is sew a tiny lace panel between the cups on the dress.  You could just hand stitch it down, and if possible, wear a nude bra that matches your skin.  Between the two, no one would notice unless they were staring at your bosom.   Shocked

I have been known to pull down the fabric on my bra a little and pin it to the inside of the dress with safety pins so it doesn't poke out. (If your dress was really low then this would not help with the centre part of the bra) But most of the time I just wear a slinky singlet in the same colour as my dress.
I hope you can make friends with your V neck, they are so so so flattering for the bigger boobed!

Why doesn't evolution work with embroidery kits?

I agree, a contrasting "modesty panel" is always welcome for the curvier gals!

Just cut out a triangle bit, as large as you need to cover your bra, and tack it into the vee.  Then you can remove it for the future when you can wear a different bra and vavavoom!! Cheesy
