Look What's Inside This Formal

I worked on a formal today that had an unusual detail. It had horizontal boning at the empire waist seam. This is something I don't see very often, so I want to share it with you. It would be impractical for a busty girl to fit into this dress, since the bustline is so form fitting. However, it does give a little extra support. Personally, I think a waist stay provides much more stability and comfort.

Here we see the inside of the dress. The combination of horizontal and vertical boning makes that bust area very fitted. Your choice of bridesmaid bodies is definitely limited!!

Here is the close up view at the side seam, showing how the two types of boning almost intersect.
