I think it’s very sexy! Where’d you find it–I might have to steal it! Lol. What other colors does it come in?

Unfortunately, I’m a B cup (booooo) and therefore don’t have the same support issues. I’d say, from the looks of this, that it’d be a pretty safe bet, though.

I have something JUST like this, but I don’t think it’s sexy. i think it’s functional–keeps my chest in place, so I feel ya. I’m a Dirty Delete and this is the best style of supportive bra I can get for formalwear. The only thing I don’t like is that it creases when i sit, but most people don’t even notice. But i wear mine with cocktail dresses usually. It feels like I “need” to wear it, not like I want to, lol. But i guess if you threw some thigh highs on with it, that’d take it up a notch. And heels. What guy can resist?

But i warn you–if you wear it for a few hours, it gets warm. And you’ll sweat in it. And that is not sexy….=]

I would be careful about it having a zippered front. I’d be afraid it’d pop apart or somerthing, not thread properly, and then not work very well. hook/eyes may work better.

I would not wear it if you don’t have to!  Why torture yourself for nothing??  You can always slip into it or something else after the wedding, when it’s just you and your man.  πŸ™‚

I think it’s very sexy.  Bless your heart for wearing it for you man all day.  I could not do it.

Haha. I just wanted to note that MsInterpret is one of our fabulous LGBTQ brides…. so she’s not really wearing it for a man. lol.

I think it’s functional, honestly.  It does have a distinctly retro feel, but it looks like foundation garments, not lingerie. I would just slip into something sexier later. I do agree with ejs about the zipper though. Id go for hooks and eyes.

Oops, sorry for assuming, my bad.  I couldn’t wear that all day for anyone. πŸ™‚

I actually like the lace corset you posted first over the satin one. I think the lace preserves the retro feel you said you like about the first one.

I prefer the lace over the satin, too. They aren’t super comfortable, though…they just feel stiff in general. But i think if you dress it up right, it can go beyond functional lingerie. I think if you want a good longline bra, it may set you back more than $30. You get what you pay for, and if you NEED the support, you’ll have to get something more structured. Mine was like $65 I think, and I got it at a specialty bra store. I tried on over 2 dozen. for some reason the cups don’t always fit right, AND if you launder it and wear it, it conforms after a couple of days. If you are planning on wearing it under your dress, you may wanna break it in.

Maybe you can find a corset that has some slim ties in the back? Or you could do a strapless and a pure corset….good ole fashioned kind. You could always change into something, too =]. I vote for that….cuz if you sweat in a longline all day, i’ts not so sexy =]
