    Hi Everyone,
    I have a sweetheart gown----its the Rene from Pronovias and I want to have my boobs kept in place. Anyone have suggestions?

      I know there are a lot of options that have corsett/bra in one, the bridal salons sell the more expensive options but get creative and you can find them elsewhere too. Do you have a TJ Maxx or Marshalls by you? I was there today and they have a big variety of "underthings" for really good price. I actually bought a belly-sucker-in thing that has boning along the bodice, on clearance for $10! I don't have my dress yet but i bought it to wear under that.
      Your dress is beautiful! I have my eye on a Pronovias as well :)

        Angela, I have the same question! I want my dress to just prop up and give me good shape so Im not pulling on it or tugging at it.

          I think the bustier is better so that it stays up better. strapless bras always keep slipping down on me and I don't want to keep pulling on it either. Let me know if you find anything good----I am going to be looking too and will keep you up to date.

            I bought this long line bra on ebay, seller chelseamarketeers

            I am fairly small chested and it gives me decent cleavage, plus has a lower back than most bustiers/corsets I saw in stores.

                Did you receive it yet? I'm wondering what the quality is like and if it runs true to size?

                  runs pretty true to cup size, going by the sizing info if you are in between sizes for your waist I recommend going with the smaller size. I had initially ordered a 36 petite and it was big and kinda short (not as petite as I thought I guess) so I exchanged it for a 34 standard.

                  It comes in 2 styles, I ordered the older style but for some extra money you can get it with some updates to the boning and it has a smoother outer fabric.

                    KimmyG: keep in mind that if you have boning in it, you will see the lines through the dress if the dress is fitted. I tried one that had it underneath my dress, which is fitted on top to the waist, and you could see the fine lines right through the dress. Just to keep in mind and remember to bring it to try on dresses so you don't run into this problem.
                    I ended up buying a bustier from David's Bridal after I got drained from running around to all of these different palces and trying them on.lol I gave up. It actually was close to the same price as I saw at the "mall" type places.
                    I agree with Angruck that a strapless bra would probably fall or slip down.
                    I was told that the bustier that I purchased ran small and it did, so make sure everyone is either measuring before ordering or trying things on.
                    Good luck and happy shopping!
