That sounds extremely cheap for all the work she is putting into it! And I agree with the cups and no bra.

Not really sure. I could see her suggesting one or the other to help it fit and stay in place, but not both.

No sure about the corset, but the boning is for support so you’re not pulling your dress up all night ๐Ÿ™‚

Definately get boning, it’ll make the dress look nicer because it won’t be buckling and it’ll give it a nice shape (also help it stay up)

If you pick one or the other I would go for boning over a corset. A corset can move independently of the dress and wind up shifting, while boning is in the dress and will keep its shape without moving. She just may be suggesting both since maybe your dress wasn’t built with a ton of support and she thinks it will look better with more structure? And yes to sewing in cups, that is what I am doing, I HATE when you can see bras sticking out of wedding dresses!

@cherryblossomlove:  It’s up to you. I know people who have done both because they really wanted to look tiny in their dress, but it was a personal preference. My dress has boning which supports it great, but I am not adding a corset too. My guess is just that if she is suggesting it, I would def get at least the boning because your dress probably does need the support. Most ballgowns have boning in them, I believe, to help the heavy skirt not pull it down.

My seamstress slapped my hand when I mentioned wearing a bra with my sweetheart neckline and said she will sew one into the dress so that I dont have to worry about it slipping.

An internal corset isn’t just there to suck you in but to distribute the weight of the skirt evenly across your torso so that your hips don’t take a pounding. That’s the thing that the “Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” dresses get so badly wrong.
