Are you looking for a corset to wear or a bra? If it’s a corset I’d suggest having one made, find the local group that does the Renaissance faire in your area for suggestions and you’ll get the best quality. I have a friend who preforms in the faire Pamona and those people have masters degrees in period piece costume making. You can also check out etsy I’ve seen a lot of great quality corsets on there. I just got a lesson from the same friend on tips for finding one, a good quality basic corset needs at least 6 pieces of boning to really hold the shape and keep things smooth otherwise it’s a waste. 1 under each breast, 1 on each side and 2 on the back opposite the breast pieces. (A REALLY intense corset often has 1 in between the pieces under each breast and 1 in between each side piece and breast piece – they go up from there) 

If it’s just a longline bra or bustier you’re after I’ve heard great things about both Wacol and La Mystere, (not sure of spelling) both available at Nordstroms. Not cheap but I have Wacol bra’s and they’re most comfortable for sure and i think they work best for bigger girls (34dd here).

I bought a waist clincher from hipsandcurves.com. I didnt think I was going to like it but it fits great! Ive gotten stuff from fredericks in the past two. Im a 40DDD and about a street size 18-20.

I also reommend herroom.com.  I got my Goddess strapless from there and they had lots of great reviews from lots of women of all different sizes.  I advise you to pay attention to any hints they give you about going up/down a size.

This might be a bit late, but I just read your post.  I tried EVERY bridal corset out there, many orders to herroom.com and other sites.  The BEST bridal corset I found is by Flattering Me.  I swear by this thing!  It sucks you in and supports insanely well.  I found that ordering a cup size down from what I normally wear worked better.  It helps to push “them” up, instead of “them” falling into the cups.  Anyhow, if you try a couple sizes, you will get what I mean.  Good luck. Smile
