I’m a DDD and I found that I did a lot better in boned dresses when all I had on was underwear. The boning of the built-in corset was plenty to keep me up. The last thing I need is a push up bra. For some of the more fitted dresses I considered needing some shape wear for my tummy, but ended up with a ballgown so I don’t need it. Have you tried your dress without a bra on? I too was skeptical, but it really does work.

Here’s me in the sample dress with no bra

I found something similar to this bustier from David’s Bridal for a lot less money. It works great with my corset dress. I also ordered a pair of luvees to avoid my thighs chafing. I’m a D cup just for reference

I couldn’t wear anything under my dress but pasties and a pair of panties. Everything else was visible. If youre really busty, Id recommend going into as many stores as possible and trying things on. Then bring a couple of options with you to your fitting.

Talk about pooch! I had bought a body magic to wear underneath but that thing is like a metal jacket. So I will watch this post for ideas as well.

@linds12:  I actually found mine at a little bridal store in the mall for about $30 less than what David’s Bridal was selling it for

I would go to Intimacy and see if they have anything that would work for you. You should also look at a website for Body Magic and see if they have anything that would work with something strapless.
