I think this is called and unlined or sheer bodice.  Sometimes this style is also lined with nude fabric so that it’s not actually sheer, but creates that illusion.

CinnamonToBe:  It’s definetly an option to add a white lining to these sorts of dresses during your alterations.  May be your best bet.

CinnamonToBe:  I would maybe phone or email bridal salons in your area and ask them what its called. 🙂

I’ve heard the term ‘exposed boning’…does that do anything?
