Hi
Im a 36G/H depending
for me corsets are a godsend, even with light boning they are still very very very supportive
other things i can think of are
a Strapless Basque,

a Torsolette (they work really well under prom dresses )
or this might be an idea, UFitIN have these up to my size ^.^

I know the pain (14DD).

I know you want to tey and avoid a bra but another suggestion is to invest in a high quality Halter Neck Bra....I used to have one (it finally broke about a month ago) and I found it better than a strapless as the sides were lower (thus easier to hide) and it just had that extra bit of support due to ther being a strap.

Another suggestion would be to build the top like a bra....i.e build in some underwire. It may take a bit of work but it can be done.

One thing you can consider is doing the top in 2-layers as it is so skimpy wouldn't overheat the same. I would use boning in the bottom layer and again choose a slightly stiffer fabric for the top layer to try to maintain the right look. Basically end up with something very fitted.

In the same boat as you. Hope this helps. It is what I would do. =)

This sounds like a good idea- I think you could replace the bra's existing halter strap with a clear strap which you could place behind the thin white halter on Vannille's top. I would definately go with a convertible bra (designed to be worn stapless as well) so your poor neck isn't taking all the weight.

I dunno, but I wore a strapless bra for my school ball last year. I have pretty small boobs, they're just on B and the strapless just kept sliding down. :/ I dunno if it's because I'm too skinny or what. XD

(Yes, I'm really skinny, blame my parents, my whole family are sticks XD)

No, strapless bras are the most ridiculous invention ever. Except as purely decorative pieces ;)

A good corset uses very strong engineering practices that I intuitively understand but cannot articulate in that way as I am not an engineer!

Basically a strapless bra is not long enough to generate support from undrneath and as they are shaped over the bust they do not use tension to hold in place either (binding uses this principle). Also due to the narrowness and single layer aspect if you do use tension by making it tighter you get lines of it digging into the flesh.

Sticky on cups also do nothing but make bulk, skin stretches too much so the extra weight of them can even make breasts hang lower.

Medical strapping tape, however unpleasant to use, is designed to stick to flesh and hold up or out or down floating parts of the body. Think knee caps and shoulder blades. It works well when used properly. Again you need to take into account weight and stretch of skin.

Also you can rebuild a bra ;) I've done that a few times.

I find my convertable ones though will make my neck sore after a while if I use a halter strap, but you can also cross the straps in front as well as behind which helps with lift and hiding straps under a narrow top. You can also add little loops to other parts of the bra so you can say cross the straps in front then bring then straight down over the shoulders to hook near the closing. And make more straps buy purchasing bra hooks from haberdasheries :)

I invested in a strapless bra (which also came with clear removable straps) i find it to be very good. It has a very good none slip feature at the bottom (sorry i dont know what its called) im a larger size and it doesnt seem to slip down for me.

i Agree with neimhaille Strapless bras are lame. Convertible bras with Jelly straps are ok but they tend to cut in after to long.
A good Corset is awesome. and if you use plastic or Spring steal boning you still have a fair bit of movement. I like lots of steal i'm a 12G and well when i go braless i like uber support.

Sorry for not replying for so long, busy busy!
More great suggestions!

Trial and error seems ot be the way to go, some things work better then others, and work betton on some people and not others.
This really will be fun once I have the money to put into experementing!

I'm currently nutting out a backless gown with one (chain) shoulder,
and I found what's worked best so far is boning the sides and catch
stitching breast forms into the lining. I'm a A/B cup, but I'm happier
not going commando!

...and to tell the truth, if you're a 10E you could wear a rubbish bag and look great!

That would be awfully uncomfortable. Went shopping today and found much to my disgust that although I am slimmer my bust is distinctly opposite (has gained a cup size *cries*) On the up side I have better muscular definition. I like shoes for this very reason. At least I picked up a wig comb Sly
