My mermaid dress has two belly bands sewn inside, that hold it up. And my alterations lady is sewing in bra cups so I don’t have to wear a bra. I know a bustier wouldn’t have fit underneath my dress. Any chance she could have these things added?

It’s two elastic strips that are sewn in at the seam at the side of the dress, that attach at the back with clasps. It really does hold the dress up and provide a little “lift”. One is literally at my waist and the other is higher up and a bit wider.

Why isn’t the place where she bought it and is having any alterations done telling you this? Every time I’ve had to buy a formal dress I’ve always been told what to get for underneath OR they’ve provided it during the fittings, as well as having them available for purchase.

Is this a bridal shop? If so,I’m surprised they aren’t offering suggestions or assistance.
