    i am a DDD and have always been cursed with a "chest" (more like a bookcase....hahaha). You definitely need the support and I don't think you can possibly go wrong with the corset it will also benefit you in other areas keeps everything in place.

    Ohhhhh and CONGRATS on your weight loss that's great! Good for you!

      I share your curse, do you have any recommendations for a good corset? The ones at Davids Bridal don't fit me right for some reason. And nothing from VS has ever fit me!

        Goddess Bra and they do have a bridal line as well...

          I just got back from Macys and thought I found a bustier on sale for only $31 of course they didnt have my size. Figures. Guess I could go to another Macys and give it another go. Of course its not on sale online and I want to try it on first any way. Ggggrrr why cant anything be easy.

            That you for the website.. I think what i will do is buy a corset so that i will have it on my fittings then if the seamstress says she thinks i can go with cups then I maight go with cups.. i guess it just all depends.. i have never worn either so it will be an adventure!

              hee hee ... I just finished with my final dress fitting and it was the first one with the cups actually sewn in. LOVED THEM! The cups definitely had a little padding to them - almost like with a push-up bra - it really filled out the bodice nicely.

              I had been debating this issue as well. I completely agree with Nicole - if your dress is altered correctly that should be all you need. My dress already had an elastic hook-and-eye closure type band that was practically a built in bra and the bodice of the dress had boning - I just felt like I had too many layers with a corset on under the dress.

              Now that I've tried the dress with the cups sewn in - it was perfect!

                Thanks!! I checked to see where they sell these and Nordstom carries them, that's on my to-do this weekend. I think I might be a little behind schedule. Wedding is April 12th, haven't taken dress to alterations yet cuz been trying ot loose weight. 15lbs gone, 15 more to go!

                  I highly recommend them....I love mine! Us girls need extra guard rail in the bra....but you want it to be a pretty bra, makes you feel prettier! And congrats on the weight loss, good for you, I'm tring to do the same....just having a hard time with it. Just keep your mind to it! Either way you will still look like a beautiful bride on your day.

                    I want a reduction so bad, but I know I'll never do it. My BF is getting married in Belize in Oct and she picked the cutest BM dresses but they are backless so I've got to figure out a way to hoist up the girls, maybe ducktape!

                    THANKS! The only thing that works for me to lose lbs is to lift weights and cut out sugar. You just have to figure out what works for you. I'm just not organzed/disciplined enough to count points or do any of that formal diet stuff.

                    I just noticed that you are getting married in Charleston, that's where all my family is from. I was just there last weekend. Where are you having your ceremony and reception?

                      Do any of the Ontario girls know where to get corset/bustiere type of bras in or around Toronto?

                      We've tried the usual The Bay, Sears, LaSenza and they have the sexy type, but not the smooth practical ones :)
