How lovely that dress is.  You mad a great choice:)  I would say some sort of french bustle. To show off the lace and the beautiful hem lace.  Because of the corset you could have another cup sewn in and some extra boning.  They do have low back strapless bras too, you could try that.

Might I say that you look absolutely astonishing. Wow. Truly, very beautiful. Would you mind sharing your measurements? I am going to order my dress Saturday and am also considering a 4 by another designer. I do not have access to their size chart online, as it is an exclusive to the boutique, but most are pretty similar. The dress really seems to fit you perfectly and it is gorgeous. Your fiance will be in heaven! πŸ™‚

Also, I found an awesome, nude, convertible bra at Wet Seal of all places! It was cheap and works like a dream! Now, I don’t know that it will hold up for YEARS, but it will do you great justice on the day of your wedding and through your honeymoon, etc. Maybe try it or Friedrick’s of Hollywood. They have some nice things that are fairly inexpensive and effective.

BEAUTIFUL!!! This looks just like Bride Beautiful salon! They had soo many gorgeous gowns! I’m probably just not going to wear a bra as my Maggie has some support inside and I’m a 34B. Maybe you could have cups sewn inside?

You’re right!!  Your gown does fit like a glove and it is stunning on you!!!  When you visit your seamstress, ask her/him if they have any bustle styles they would recommend.  Congrats!

I think French bustle or traditional would be beautiful! I hope this is not thread jacking – but I have some photos of different bustles my seamstress did (and took photos of to show me). My gown has lace overlay –

Gorgeous!! This is my dress, too! I have to wait until August to get her though πŸ™  You’re the only other person I’ve ever seen it on and wow it looks great!! I’m interested in your decision on the bustle. Are you going to have a crinoline to poof out the bottom? Congrats on getting your dress in!!
