I got my bustier (well actually a corset) from Fredericks of all places.  You should have seen my mom’s reaction to the word "Fredericks", but it was the only place I could find a plain corset/bustier for me as I’m busty.  I love it cause it doesn’t smoosh "the girls" like others do and it’s more of a custom fit with the corset.

      I am borrowing my petticoat from my future sister-in-law, so it is for free.  When my fiance’s aunt heard I was borrowing, she immediately offered up her daughters’ petticoats, too, so I was able to try on a few different ones and choose which one looked best under my dress.  If you ask around within your family/married friends, I bet someone would be willing (and honored) to lend it to you for the day.  Not only will you save money, but it is one more "something borrowed"! 

       I am having an extremely tough time finding a bustier though because I have a small bust.  It seems that I will end up spending around $70 or so for one.  Does anybody have tips on finding a bustier for an A cup??

I’m ordering this one from Amazon.  I heard it was really good from a co-worker that got married not long ago.  Plus they a lot of sizes.  A bit pricey though.  About $101 after shipping, but I figure I can use it again under dresses and stuff.

I got mine from David’s Bridal– and at first, I didn’t want to spend all that money on the petticoat, but I soon found that other places were charging just as much if not more!
