So readers may know that I recently got engaged, and because I didn’t want to be talked in to the traditional wedding dress I’ve never wanted I didn’t wait long to make a cup of tea, fire up Net-a-Porter, and order something special from the Amazing Dresses I Could Never Usually Look Directly At Let Alone Afford category. It’s here, hidden away, waiting for the big day. I love it.
I’m keeping the dress under wraps for now of course, but suffice to say for now that it is not bridal, it is not white, and I do not have a clue how to dress G-Unit underneath it. As if bridal lingerie shopping wasn’t a minefield to start with, I’ve chosen a narrow but extremely low plunging neckline for my dress. I almost never show off cleavage so it’s going to take some daring, and to boot I’ve basically rules out every G+ bra shape known to man in doing so.
Trying it on with a variety of bras from my arsenal I can deduce that:
Freya Deco (28GG) is the perfect shape – but for this I think will be to overtly boob-tastic for me to be comfortable in that neckline.
Panache Tango plunge (30G) gives the perfect cleavage – with a low and separated look that balances the appropriateness of the low neckline – but makes me look flattened under the dress.
My old Wonderbra (no longer made, but a lot like this unpadded style – 30G) does a great job of being invisible and creating a less extreme cleavage – but I can only wear it for short periods of time before the wires grind in to my ribs and I want to take it off. (Why do I still own this!?)
So the brief: basically, I need a Freya Deco on valium, or a Panache Tango Plunge on tequila. I need a deep plunge but a modest cleavage, a modest cleavage but not a flattened cleavage. I need comfort. Lacy and beautiful would be a bonus – especially if she paired with a fantastic pair of undercrackers – but perhaps I’ll settle for ‘not visible in photographs’ and ‘100% nipple secure when dancing’.
It’s a toughie… Any suggestions?
