Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.

I may not have gone where I intended, but I have ended up where I needed to be.

try the low back bra before taking it in. Sometimes the boning in those bustiers can add a slight amount of volume underneath and you don't want it coming out too small.

yes!  definitely try the bra first.  i used to fit brides in their bustiers/strapless bras/corsets for their dresses and it's incredible what a big fit difference they make.  i always recommend getting a good undergarments fitting before altering.
