I am on the hunt for a corset/bustier for a smaller waist but a bigger bust.
I’m about a 6 waist and a D-DD which makes me about a medium with a large-XL bust. I want to have a tight waistline for the dress but I don’t want to flatten out my boobs and have them in my face!! I know there are under-bust corsets, but I also need the support that a plain strapless bra cannot provide.
I know there’s a lot of seamstresses online (ebay, from China, wherever) that take measurements for dresses and whatnot.. does anyone know one that does corsets/bustiers??

Do you know if you need to wear anything? I’m a 6 in normal dresses(a 2/4 in wedding) and a D but am not wearing anything under my dress…

have you tried Fredricks of Hollywood? They usually have them based on bra size!!!

Yea, the dress is lace up but has no boning and no bust support. It looks more supportive than it is. I tried it on today. Love it to death, but gotta find the right undergarments.

I would look for a long-line smoothing bustier or a “burlesque style” corset that goes down over your hips – this gives you more control over where to tighten and loosen!

You might try talking to a seamstress to see if they can put boning in your gown. I know from experience that it is extremely hard to find what you are looking for, unless you have it custom made. A good seamstress would be able to make a corset for you.
