Bridal undies - advice/recommendations needed

I'm at the dreaded stage of having to start looking for the underwear I'll wear on my big day, and quite frankly I'm not relishing the idea of this task at all - traipsing round shop after shop having to get my kit on-and-off while lingerie shop assistants faff around with my unmentionables is not my idea of a nice day out! And I reckon it'll take a few weeks of this to find what I need.

Therefore, to try and cut out all this traipsing and stripping, I wondered if those of you who have already been through this experience could offer any brand advice or specific retailer recommendations?

I'm a small busted gal who needs a bit of 'boosting' in the ole boobie department (I had a dress fitting yesterday and the shop assistant loudly pointed out how "we'll have to take this in quite a bit at the bust area hey!" while tugging at my decidedly empty top half blush. My dress is also strapless with a lace overlay, so my bra will have to be strapless too.

If there are any other small busted ladies who wore a strapless dress for their big day, I'd love to know...what underwear were you wearing?!? (sorry grin)

I've not bought my undies yet but my sister is a similar shape and size to me - small busted and short - and wore a strapless dress. She got a strapless corset type thing and the matching bottoms from debenhams. She said the corset was fab but only if you don't have boning already in your dress. If you do it'll be overkill but I should imagine their bridal bras are pretty similar.

Btw I've just realised Debenhams have a sale on their bridal lingerie so might be worth checking it out smile

Im 5'2 and when I got married my boobs were a 32b max, but I wore a beautiful Ultimo basque type thing from Debenhams. I love it even now! Two babies later and Im not able to fit into it any more but I will get these some day!
