    Longline bra + shaper all the way! That provides the most coverage. Your post mentioned your bulging/slippage concerns multiple times, and this one would be the best way to go if that is your chief concern. The longline could also help prevent any bulge/rolling down from the shaper.

    Also, a silicone insert would help with the different cup sizes (or maybe could have the seamstress sew extra cups onto only one side of the dress–not sure if this is feasible for you). Uncomfortable undergarments should not be present on your wedding day, so I suggest going for the most comfortable shaper that will best give you the look you need.

    You should check out the Va Bien longlines (I hear great things about them, and the reviews are pretty positive).

    @BeeEuphoric:  I vote for the longline + leg shaper. That is my plan and seems like it will offer the best coverage without comfort issues. Plus the bottom is smexy which is part of what comvinced me to get it. I think you look fab in your dress and that is definitely on of my favorite AA dresses…so flattering!

    Can I ask where you found the longline bra you posted a pic of?

    If you’re worried about your thighs chafing you could get some Body Glide (regular antiperspirant works in a pinch) and rub that on.  Never had any chafing when I used that, even when running long distances.
