If anyone can offer any advice..I’m building a cocktail dress to wear to a friends wedding with a corset bodice. It is mainly inspired by this dress I saw at a local gown shop but is only sold in sizes 0-6 >(
My quandry is that I am a 38DD+ and have difficulty fitting garments to my bust. I want a sexy wasp waist but support in the bust. And something that will flatter my endowments and make my husband proud…and perhaps a bit weak in the knees =O
So, should I do an underbust corset and then attach cups, or will this not lend enough support to the bust, as it will be strapless so I don’t want the tops of the cups to gap away from my skin.
Or would I be better served creating more of a corset/bustier hybrid and make an overbust corset w spiral steel and place cups inside it to give a guiding shape for the bones of the corset to follow?
Or it appears in the photo as if the boning goes up to the underbust but then stops to allow for a cup, and in my case, an underwire.
Thanks to any and all advice and assistance =)
Thank you Lincatz this is valuable advice.
