I am totally and completely in love with my dress. This one:
The pics on the website don’t even do it justice. This dress is modern but romantic, the individual flowers have swarovski rhinestones centers and give off a great sparkle! 🙂 And I’m tall so the break in the dress of lace top, satin mid, and lace skirt was perfect… it really broke up the line.
However, after today’s fitting I am super scared I chose the wrong type of dress for my “support” needs. Here’s the background_
I am six feet tall so ordered the dress Hollow to Hem (they measured me from top to bottom and had the dress proportionally lengthened to fit me. Yay!) and I also added an extra two inches to bring the top of the dress up to where it fits on the model in the pic. I am large busted so it was showing waaaaaay to much boobage. That was all great and I am so happy I paid the extra $$$$ to have it made to measure. So what’s the problem? The corset I have to wear to hold up the “girls” shows under the satin!
I tried strapless bras and they don’t give enough “lift”. I went to Nordstrom and was there for hours trying everything out there. The shop where I purchased my dress had a Flattering Me corset that was AMAZING for lift. The foundation of the corset with an interesting cup that is just an engineering masterpiece really did the trick and my dress fit like a dream! But I don’t know what to do about the satin midsection. I tried pulling a Spanx over the corset. I asked the seamstress (who is awesome) if she could cover the corset and she says it would just make the problem worse.
Anyone encountered this type of problem? Any advice is welcome! I am thinking I should have gone with a dress with ruching. 🙁
