I don’t see why they couldn’t be removed.  It could probably be done by a qualified seamstress.  I’m not sure if the dress would stay up on its own or not but you can always use some fashion tape to keep it attached.

I wouldn’t take out the boning in the dress because it does keep up the bodice and gives you that hourglass. Here’s my suggestion:

Check out Figleaves.com.  My gf is a G and she has a strapless from there.  I wore a Panache strapless.  Purchase several different brands(I did) and see which one will work the best and then have your seamstress tack the bra in.

Good Luck!!!

I know someone whoh took boning out of a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress so I know that it can be done, but it made the dress more flat looking if that makes sense where as the boning makes the dress hold its shape more.

the boning gives the dress shape ,  if i was you i would skip the bustier if wearing both would be too much…

i have boning and cups in my dress and i wont need anything underneath…..is this something that you could do?  i think it would be very uncomfortable with both.
