I really have no idea where to post this, so I will not be surprised if it ends up under another topic.
My college student daughter bought herself a very cute dress at a consignment shop for an upcoming semi-formal dance. She is 5’4″ tall and wears a 36C bra–usually a minimizer. I am out of my element here since on my biggest day just about wear a B cup.
The dress has spaghetti straps or can be strapless. The problem is that the dress fits nicely with the minimizer, but looks horrible with her strapless bra (which is a bustier type purchased for her senior prom–spaghetti straps with low back). She looks like she is exploding out of the top of the dress. What kind of support garment should she be looking for?
I am accustomed to altering clothes –usually to put in darts to fit her curvy figure and to altering patterns to do the same, but this situation has me stumped.
Any suggestions are welcome.
