Mine did not have boning, but it was fitted/not poufy.  It’s Mon Cheri Amelia.  A few years old, but maybe they currently have a similar one out?

There is no boning in my dress, it is fitted at the top and free from the bust down.

My dress is strapless and it doesn’t have any built-in boning. I’m wearing a longline bra with light boning and a slip with control panels just to give myself a smoother line, but the dress itself doesn’t have any support structure built in. Some strapless dresses don’t have boning built in, so they may be candidates for adding straps or cap sleeves.

@JenGirl:  Mine is a White by Vera Wang, at David’s Bridal. It’s very soft and comfy inside, and the seamstress said the support for the dress will come more from the alterations than anything else. I’m not too well-endowed so I was worried about this! Plus it’s taffeta, so the fabric itself will hold shape better than something more drapey might.

I think most strapless dresses do have SOME boning, but it’s definitely not all the stabby, heavy kind. Some of it is really just there to streamline the look and shape of the dress, not to act as a corset or hanger to defy gravity. Some softer boning you may not even notice much. I tried on a number of gowns with straps that also had boning, but it was the soft kind and more for the shape of the dress.

I would check out Davids Bridal. I found that most of their dresses done have boning (which I was actually against). I think its because they want you to buy their slips and everything for support instead.

If you plan on adding sleeves or straps anyway, why not get the boning removed from any dress? My seamstress popped some of the boning out temporarily in my dress while she was taking it in and then just sewed it back in, so don’t see why that wouldn’t work on other dresses!
