I carry most of my weight on my thighs and hips as well and was terrified to find that most corsets and bustiers ended at my waist.  The woman at the place where I bought my bustier in Montreal had a very novel suggestion… support underwear!!

They’re white and have lace on them but suck me in where it counts so that the bustier sits smoothly against my skin with no lumps on the sides or in the front 🙂 

I also picked up a thong that matches with the bustier for something a little sexier for once the day is over, but I think the support underwear are very retro and sexy in their own way.

I hope that helps.

Spanx Higher Power undergarments.  I’m also a pear, and wore them under my wedding dress.  Smoothes everything out and won’t roll up, bunch up, or cause any kind of unholy wedgies.  😉  Good luck!

How about trying a waist cincher? They can go down to the hips, something like this one: http://www.laurensilva.com/Rago_Shapewear_Waist_Cincher_with_Garter_Belt_p/rago-21.htm

I was just thinking, maybe the one that you wore before was too small for you. Try on your exact size, usually when it rolls up it means that the size you’re wearing may be smaller than what you really need.

You can also tell your seamstress to put boning inside your dress, too. 🙂

I agree with the waist cincher idea.  I’m wearing one under my dress.  I wore it for my shower as a trial run.  While I did have to adjust it a couple of time (especially after opening the gift- all the sitting, bending, twisting, lifting, streching made it shift a bit).

It made a big difference.  It went from under my bust to below the curve of my hip.

I got it from herroom.com.  They have really big selection and free shipping for orders over $70.  I purchased 4 and kept the one that worked best.

They also carry all manner of support hose, spanx, and girdle type stuff.  Oh, and most of the items have extensive customer reviews as well as the review the site provides every item.
