So glad you found a dress you love! It’s beautiful!

My only thoughts are these:  Not all dresses are engineered with enough support in the bodice to be able to be worn strapless, so please be sure you discuss this with your seamstress in advance of purchasing the dress.  The other thought I had is that I’ve seen other bees post that David’s Bridal does not allow its alterations department to in any way modify the design of the store’s dresses, so, you may need to find someone else to alter the gown to your specifications.

As for a long-line bra, you may want to check online resources such as barenecessities.com, bravissimo.com, and figleaves.com for basques and bustiers. Most sites have a bridal section.

If the dress already has a lot of boning you could just add cups then you could go without a bra, unless you want shaping underwear. I would definitely suggest not having it altered at DB. They costs are enormous!

If you are just wanting a tummy smoother, shapewear like Spanx or Flexees might be more appropriate than a bustier.

BellieBee:  That’s great that the bodice has all of the boning you’ll need and even better that your mother is a seamstress and will be able to perform the extra alterations! 🙂
