    Hello everyone, I need some help. I'd really like to wear a corset top for under my dress, however the bridal salon said it will show a line at the bottom. I really need hike the babies up. Can you guys recommend anything?

      What about asking a tailor to build a push-up bra into the dress?

      i agree with kash...have the seamstress build it into the dress...if you position the pads correctly you will get alot of oomph.

          Tammy - they're right - you really don't want the line of the corset showing through (and it does). I had cups sewn in, but I'm not big so it wasn't a big deal.

          Anyway - it's really not expensive to add the cups. If you need more support, don't skimp in that area. You want to be as comfortable as possible.

            My worry is that the cups won't give me enough support. I'm not huge but need support in that area.

              I think as long as you're really clear with your seamstress you'll be fine! Just make sure she knows that you want/need some extraq support.. not to mention some oomph!

                Just a note. I have a corset built into a dress and it was the most uncomfortable thing ever when I sat down. I am pretty short, at 5'3'' so maybe that had something to do with it.

                May I suggest a too small bra if you don't want cups sewn in.

                  Hey Tammy Im having my cups sewn into my dress and I find that its very comfy and gives me the look that I want. Also, if you have a fav bra that gives you tons of lift just bring the bra to the seamstress and they can cut it and build it into your dress that way it's more comfortable than wearing a corset. Give that a try :)
