I can’t find anything in the Eugene area that has the type of strapless bustier/corset/long bra type shapeware in my budget and needs.
Anyone Portland gals know of places that would have this type of garment?
I’m hoping to keep it under $100. Right now i’m a 34DDD at VS, but their options are more for looks instead of keeping the girls “locked down” and the tummy out of site!

I actually just ordered like 5 online and I am going to just return the ones that I dont like. If you dont have the money to do that find a place with great return policy and keep exchanging them until you find one that you love.

@raeaela: If you’re willing to come to portland, I suggest visiting Just Like a Woman. My sister got her bustier/undergarments there. They have a great variety of sizes and styles.
Nordstrom is another option (closer to Eugene).
If you’re willing to try online – I have had great experiences with Bare Necessities (www.barenecessities.com). Fast shipping, good prices, accurate sizes (if you take your measurements correctly), and high quality products.

I actually found a great little store here in Eugene!
It is called Ruth’s Foundations – the store is a little outdated and old ladish styles, but they carry several nice wedding garments at decent prices. The best part is they will alter them for free.
I was able to get my bustier for about $50 and they took it in about an inch in my waist (since i have a large bust), lowered the top so it wouldn’t poke above my dress and sewed little darts in another area. All in 3 days. I was so impressed!
