Where did you get yours from? I bought my dress from Alfred Angelo, but I dont really like the drawstring slip that they offer. I am looking for the back zipper kind like the one that David’s Bridal sells but hoping to find it somewhere else cheaper. I am also in the market for a bustier.
How much do you guys spend for those 2 items?

I got my bustier (well actually a corset) from Fredericks of all places. You should have seen my mom’s reaction to the word "Fredericks", but it was the only place I could find a plain corset/bustier for me as I’m busty. I love it cause it doesn’t smoosh "the girls" like others do and it’s more of a custom fit with the corset.

I am borrowing my petticoat from my future sister-in-law, so it is for free. When my fiance’s aunt heard I was borrowing, she immediately offered up her daughters’ petticoats, too, so I was able to try on a few different ones and choose which one looked best under my dress. If you ask around within your family/married friends, I bet someone would be willing (and honored) to lend it to you for the day. Not only will you save money, but it is one more "something borrowed"!
I am having an extremely tough time finding a bustier though because I have a small bust. It seems that I will end up spending around $70 or so for one. Does anybody have tips on finding a bustier for an A cup??

I’m ordering this one from Amazon. I heard it was really good from a co-worker that got married not long ago. Plus they a lot of sizes. A bit pricey though. About $101 after shipping, but I figure I can use it again under dresses and stuff.

I got mine from David’s Bridal– and at first, I didn’t want to spend all that money on the petticoat, but I soon found that other places were charging just as much if not more!
