Have you tried this on?  http://www.herroom.com/Le-Mystere-2355-Bridal-Seduction-Bustier-Bra.shtml

I’m busty, too, and asked a friend for advice, and that’s what she recommended.  It’s what she wore at her wedding, and said it’s amazing.  I haven’t had a chance to go try it yet, but thought I’d pass the advice on!  I like that on this site they show it on a bustier woman, too!

Good luck – you’ll find something!

I love your dress!! I think it is worth the time to find the right foundational garment for the dress – even if you put a shaping slip on top of your corset. I’d buy a bunch of (returnable) garments and then try them on under your dress *with* your seamstress. I’m sure you’ll be able to find something! You’ve got a little bit of time, so order up your garments and round up your lingerie from stores and run to your seamstress.

I don’t have any suggestions for you because unfortunately, I don’t have a large chest, but I just wanted to say that I LOVE YOUR DRESS!!! It is absolutely gorgeous! I really hope that you find the under garments to make it work. Good luck!!

Wow, that dress is gorgeous!  Can you talk to the people who make the dress about some advice of what to wear for support?

I’ve been to six wedding locations and tried on dresses. I’m soo stressed! I kinda know what I want-but am torn.  I wanna find the “right dress.”  I feel I’m being too picky. I can say I looove the corset fitting dress such as this Maggie Sottero:::


However that style doesn’t suite my personality, although its a beautiful dress.

I tried on this KittyChen, which was beautiful on…I would have chosen this one, but I really want embroidery on the train or something…its a little too plain in the back.http://kittychencouture.com/bridal/2009/contessa.html

I need any suggestions for a dress. I like the traditional & modern look. However just like every bride I really want one that stands out. I like a little funky style too. Any help is appreciated. thnx

Have you thought about getting some boning sewn into the actual dress and making the back of the dress into a corset itself? I am busty when compared to my waist size (I don’t have the hugest boobs ever, but in comparison to my waist, they are disproportionately large) so I needed to have good support on my dress. My dress has a corset back and lots of boning, and when its laced up I feel snug as a bug in it! I know that putting corset backs on dresses has been done before!

Good luck!

Oh btw, your dress is effing GORGEOUS!!! I wish I would have seen that when trying on dresses *__*

I think your best bet is to get a strapless bodysuit style body shaper. They run about $78 @ Freshpair.com, also the strapless slip shapewear from Kohl’s mentioned earlier would also work.  Unfortunately, it sounds it might too late to be ordering online….If you don’t find anything this weekend and you can afford it, then YES, seriously consider putting the corset in. It really would alleviate some of your concerns, and I do not think it would make the dress look vintage. It would keep in line with the romantic aspects of the dress, but the shape of the dress keeps it modern.
