@jessyrez:  as it was explained to more at the bridal salon, the point of a longline bra versus a regular strapless is that th additional fitted part of the longline (to your natural waist) increases support and decreases the likelihood of slippage under your dress (same reason strapless gowns are fitted tightly to your waist, you want the weight of the dress there rather than handling from the top).  I’d be afraid of a bra with an extender in particular slipping down, unless you could get it tacked in?


I did feel that the longline bra they put me in the salon added bulk, and it got kind of hot.  I’m leaning towards having cups sewn in and getting my dress taken in as tight as it will go at the hips/waist…but I’m shopping for a lightweight longline bra as backup.  You definitely still have nice waistline definition in your dress, so I think you have options 🙂
