It’s a lovely dress , but I can’t help thinking that a totally backless dress without  any boning  or built in support is always going to be a problem for any woman with a ‘generous bosom’.

Thats a very interesting link ! And, while I really applaud the blogger for courage in the service of boobs, I  don’t think the final gaffer tape result was all that great do you ? Better than the two bras  of course !

elderbee :  it’s definitely not my aesthetic lol! But I do know people who aim for that look so.. *shrug*

Honestly, at the time of my wedding I wore a 32i and while I did try on a couple of backless dresses there were none that I could believed would be able to be altered to give enough support. I ended up in a ball gown, with lots of built in support AND that I could wear a cheap strapless bra with. I love my dress, but my body type was definitely a deciding factor.
