- Wedding: October 2014
I had my 1st dress fitting done this past Sunday and I had a longline strapless bra underneath. After the seamstress pinned everything, I wasn’t happy with how I seemed to be bulging out around my chest and armpit area, so she suggested removing the bra to see how it would look. I was skeptical since I have 34 DDD girls to contain, but surprisingly it looked SO much better since my chest didn’t look over lifted and there was way less armpit rolls going on.
The downside is that my waist and tummy area aren’t as well defined without the longline bra, so I’m on the hunt for some shapewear to remedy that. I was looking into something like the photo below, but I’ve read reviews saying how the kind without boning tend to either roll up from the bottom or down from the top, and I obviously don’t want to be fidgeting with that the day of the wedding.
Reviews for the kind with boning say that if you have a short torso (which I do), the boning can dig into your chest or hip area when sitting. I’m also concerned that this kind may cause back fat to bulge out.
I also looked into the high waisted briefs, but I’m thinking it would be a huge PITA if you had to use the restroom.
I’d love for any recommendations from those who either wore one or are planning to wearing one with their dress!
