Honestly? There’s not too much you can do. Here’re some options for increasing comfort:

  • go up in size (bigger bustier = more room = less digging)
  • lose weight (smaller body = more room = less digging)
  • wear the bustier between now and your wedding either to: 1) get more used to the digging/squashing feeling of shapewear or 2) break the bustier in by stretching it out a bit
  • I like the idea of sewing softer/plusher fabric on the inside of the bustier (ask your seamstress about this option).

@jbbs1222:  Ugh don’t do this to yourself. Is there any way you can have cups added into your dress instead of wearing this bustier?  OR mine is pretty comfy on its own BUT i am also doing shapewear first from under breast bone down to thigh.  Like a long bike short to suck in my stomach and firm up my things and then I am putting bustier OVER that.  So it’s not touching skin but rather the long shapewear?

 

my shapwear shorts: SOOOO comfy.  It’s TC Fine Intimates brand – less bulky than spanx brand:

 

 

 

 

Then I am putting bustier OVER them so it’s not even really touching most of my skin:

Man that sucks.  I am sorry.  I would buy another one and resell the first one.  I wouldn’t be able to walk around with that all night it would drive me crazy.  Perhaps DB can let you exchange it? I wonder if it’s just the fit because I have super sensitive skin and mine dos not bother me – HOWWVER the back loops are too big right now I have to get them resized and taken in smaller.  I bought it for the DD cups since they fit perfectly.  Seamstress is going to take in the back.
