@meowbride: A bustier is baiscally like a corset without the heavy boning and waist cincing, a longline bra is just a bra with a bit extra on  the bottom to provide extra support for the girls.

If you want to be all pulled in and your dress doesn’t provide that i would suggest a light bridal corset but i would imagine these would be uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time.

Based on the style of your dress, you will need something (strapless) that extends below your waist to give you the look you’re seeking.  Those are usually considered to be basques, bustiers and corsets, whereas a long-line bra doesn’t usually extend below the waist.

Depending on the size and fullness of your bust, however, you may find that this type of garment — which pushes up and out — may give you too much cleavage.  I planned to wear a long-line bra but discovered that I could not, because it literally pushed my chest up too far into the cups of the dress, and I did not want to have that much cleavage.

Here are two great sites for finding basques, bustiers, and corsets (some of which also come in larger cup sizes and many of which have removable straps):
