okay ladies, i need to complain and i need some ideas! i just went to a store that sells dancewear and bought some tops that have what i guess are called built-in shelf bras. i was thinking how great they would be to wear this summer and not have to wear a regular bra under the shirt. problem is that even though they are really fitted, they don't offer much support (i swear my little B cups normally look pretty perky!) AND even though there is the built-in bra, my nipples totally show. argh!

any ideas on altering these tops so they provide some support rather than squishing me completely flat? i thought about taking out the built-in bra and putting in my own, but i don't really have an design ideas that would offer more support. and any ideas on what kind of fabric to use for a built-in bra that will actually conceal my nipples?

you can buy padding for a regular bra that you could sew into the shelf bra. no nipplage and more support. i think.

I was planning the same thing for a backless halter I want to do. I really need the paddings.  Grin

I have the same "perky" problem.. although my breasts are tiny.  What I am going to do.. when I get around to it is take apart one of my shelf t's and use that for a pattern.  I HATE to wear padded bras, so I was just going to reconstruct the shelf part, and add a circle of padding, or thicker material right where the nipples hit.  This way, you get the shelf bra thing, without all the bulkiness of a padded bra, with just adding that little bit of extra padding where the nipples are.
I hate the pokey nipple syndrome..
