Do you need one to make your dress fit in a certain way?  I thought I would need both or one or the other but it turns out I didn’t need either of them.. They are just going to sew cups into my dress so I don’t need a bra either 🙂

@Katchin:  What style of dress are you wearing? Can you post a picture of the dress? Is your dress already a corset back? If you are wearing a very fitted dress you may not need anything. The dress shop can usually add cups to your dress to give you a boost.  What are you hoping to acheive by adding a corset/bustier?

I’m wearing one. A long line underbust corset to be exact. I need to have an hourglass shape created since I’m not very hippy!

@Katchin:  The dress is very pretty. I think that if you get a corset put in that it could potentially fix all your concerns.  Personally I would not do a full corset under the dress, cinching at the waist will sometimes cause overflow on the top half and bottom half of the body.

You could look into ordering a longline bra (http://www.lindasonline.com/).   But your dress looks like you could just get away with having a bra sewn in and adding some spanx.  Think about what you will be comfortable wearing all day and night.

I’ve worn a long line under a dress and it kept twisting and I spent all evening tugging and pulling, plus it made my boobs sway left and right when I walked because of the way it sat on my hips. I also purchased an underbust for a halloween costume and while it sucked my midsection in, it squeezed it out the bottom (not flattering)

I just ordered an ivory longline corset from Corset Story online and it is amazing. I’m very pleased. Super heavy-duty and well-constructed.

@Katchin:  I believe they are refering to having a corset back added to your dress, not a fully boned corset. Honestly I think having the corset back added will be your best bet.  My friend wears a 38H bra and she had a corset back added to her dress and she went the whole day braless and no one was the wiser. Plus it cinched in her waist some.
