I have a davids Bridal Silk Charmuese dress in size 16w. Its form fitting and then flares from the waist. Very gorgeous (to me). I am size 16/18 and I got the dress in a 16W with the promise that they can let it out in the bust areas since the girls need some extra room. I am playing around with longline bras underneath… I love the smoothing bra… But I have recently tried the actual dominique with boning because of the reviews I saw online. Pros… Its SUCKS in my buddha belly… Cons… I can see the boning. My family members say they didnt notiice the boning until I said something. The other thing is that I like it TIGHT to really suck it in… Which causes some back bulging, but flattens my tummy… once I have a fitting and they loosen up the bust area I am hoping the bulging is less. Anyone have any advice? or perhaps any other ideas. I dont think this dress will be a good candidate for a corset back beacause of the ruching it has, plus I am not fond of the corset back so I dont like that option.
These pictures are the first time I tried the dress on… I am wearing a smoothing long line bra and regular panties.
