Hehe, ample bosom.  I always never know how to describe my, uh, situation and I think I’ll adopt your phrase. I too have an ample busom, and am going with a corset.  The gals just didn’t work with a strapless or strapless longline, plus I like the curves a corset made with my dress.  It would have been a whole entire night of a bride reaching down her dress and doing a little dance to bring the bra back in position the other ways!  I ordered one from fredericks of all places, and I love it!  I’m at work, and probably would raise a flag going to fredericks.com to post the link for you, but go there, click under corsets at the top, then click on bridal on the left.  It’s the one at the bottom that is pictured in black.  It’s great cause it actually has built in cups and won’t smoosh.

Cleavage is awesome!  But smoosh I mean like sports bra smoosh, ya know?  Some corsets don’t have cups at all, just a single panel, and create a major uniboob that is soooo bad on larger ‘gals’.  I love the fredericks one b/c it has removable pushup padding that adds some definate va va voom!

It may depend on your dress.  I also am rather gifted in that area, and tried on numerous bras and corset type things, and found that one by Wacoal worked awesome- it supported, but had separate cups so there was no uniboob.

Unfortunately, my dress is a bit too clingy for that, and it shows through, so I returned the bra and am getting cups sewn in instead.

I got a corset instead of a long line bra. I’d love to say that it was cause the sex factor is a little hotter in the corset, but really it was the back fat issue. I like that in a corset I can have it nice and tight under the girls and at the waist, and a little looser at the top to avoid the spillage. I also liked that i could loosen it a little bit more at the bottom to make sitting more comfortable.

In short – the corset is a more custom fit. It also accomodates last minute weight loss better.

The top of my dress is a full corset and I’m considering just having some cups put in (I’m a 36D) I’ve put my dress on without any foundation at all and it looks incredible.  I believe having the full corset top makes ALL the difference in the world and gives you that hour glass shape even if you don’t normally have it. Just make sure to try sitting before you buy.
