I have it in my head that you MUST wear a bustier under a wedding dress. I guess it’s because all the bridal shops offered them when I was shopping for my dress. But I’ve had THE hardest time finding a bustier that fits correctly and both stays up but doesn’t make me pudge out of the top and bottom. I’ve spent countless hours shopping for one and it’s such a pain trying those things on by yourself!
I’m thinking a better solution than wearing something that creates bulges where they don’t naturally exist is to wear a strapless bra of some sort along with high-waisted Spanx. Will the bridal gods strike me down if I do that? I haven’t had my first fitting yet so I haven’t had a chance to talk to a seamstress about what would be the best option.
So what are you wearing under your dress to support and slim on the big day? Maybe we can come up with a list of recommendations for those of us who are in the market for this sort of thing.
