    Hmmmm....now I am wondering if I should go a 'step up' from Spanx and go for a corset under my wedding dress....or get one that is sewn in Anyone have experience with corsets?

    I would love one to suck in my waist, but I do not want my chest overflowing out the top. A friend of mine, who is big busted, but a lot thinner, said that her wedding dress had one sewn in and she didn't need to wear a bra.

    What do you girls think?

      I wore a corset style long bodice bra for my first wedding (10 years ago and traditional). I loved it and still have it (although I am not the same size as I was, so I am not sure why I still own it). But, there are a few things to consider...

      1. Make sure it has a cup style strapless bra at the top not just that band thing... keep you in check... if you know what I mean
      2. If your dress is not the typical heavy satin and you have gone with a flowy style, try it with the dress... may show through because of lacing.

      Never seen one sewn in... that would be cool... I wonder how you would lace it.

          Lisa, I'm with ya on that one! This whole bra thing sucks. I hate, hate, hate trying to get just the right one. One makes me to saggy, one makes me to pointy, one makes me smushed, one makes me overflow.....and it goes on and on. Ugh!!
