Underwear for wedding dress

Sadly I'm looking for the scaffold rather then the saucy kind!

I'm a size 16 with 34F boobs. My dress is very low cut - and has a lace back so I need something quite low at the back (below regular bra strap) I like balconette type bras.

Ideally I'd like a corset type body shaper - something that will make my apple shape seem hourglass.

Any ideas where to look? Budget is around £100.

TIA.

Bravissimo sometimes have basques and bodies which would do what you want.

Thanks for your reply bonzo I've had a look there - I can't see anything that is not full cup (that would be visible at the front of my dress) and that has a low back.

I pretty much want something like Jessica rabbits dress!!

Are you sure you'll need a bra? I was a size 18/20 and a 36G when I got married. It was also the only day in my life since I was....erm.... 12? that I didn't wear a bra.

The dress was so well fitted that I didn't need one (boned, laced, corset-esque style top.

I was stressing about bras, even had a vanity bone sewn into the dress in anticipation of bra-wearing, but in the end I just didn't need one

Yes I think I do - the dress is low and I want to make sure I stay where I am supposed to! I've tried the dress on without a bra and it looks fine - but with a bra (which spoiled the look from the back) it looked so much better.

It sounds like a proper corset is what you're after. No sure how low backed one can go though.

Where would I get something like that mrslettuce?

I'm assuming it's strapless and backless, if not there's this and other such similar articles.

How about this? I have it in black and the straps can be worn in a multitude of ways. Back comes down low.

Cross post!

Thanks! Singlepringle that's exactly the idea - but it doesn't go up to my size.

mrslettuce that's bloody perfect! I've been searching for DAYS! How have I not found it?! Do you have special google access I don't?! Thanks so much grin

I'll order it and hope for the best.
