Hey everyone, lately I've really been digging the style of.. fitted boob cups? It sounds trashy but I'm really not sure what theyre called haha. Its part of the bodice and everything. Here are some pictures, so you know what I'm talking about:

I'm sorry the images arent terribly that great, but I had a difficult time finding them because i didn't know what to call them.

Anyway, Im wondering what is the official name of that look, and more importantly, how would I go about doing it? THANKS EVERYONE XO

corset tops. 10 to 1 the bodice has boning in it... you just attach the skirt to the corset/bodice.
that being said, i don't actually know how to sew one! i think there's a couple craftster tutes on corsets. this kind of corset you're looking at most likely isn't a lace-up corset, probably just a zip or hooked. these aren't necesariy meant to cinch you in, just stylistic elements.
hopefully that'll help!

The only name I could come up with is a "bustier" style bodice.Hopefully that helps!

I think they're just called "cups".

This livejournal is all about corset making. Here is a link to all their posts about making corsets with cups.
http://community.livejournal.com/corsetmakers/tag/miscellaneous%7Cbras%20and%20cupped%20corsets
There are lots of pictures and a few tutorials in there.

You could also take and old bra and deconstruct it so you could see how the cups are put together. Or just buy a pattern for making an actual bra.

I hope this helps!

I made a dress with a corset-type bodice very similar to what you're trying to achieve for an a-level project. I searched everywhere for a pattern but had absolutely no luck, but, if you are willing to pattern manipulate over and over again you can make your own pattern. Using a pattern for a stretch-fabric lingerie bodice, http://www.sewessential.co.uk/images/productpdf/KS_2358.pdf you can play around to create cups and a bodice that will work in woven fabrics and have the fit you need. Despite the image giving the effect of several panels, as it's stretch, the pattern comes as only about 4 pieces, hence why you'll need to do a lot of adapting, but it's worth the effort! Hope that might help!

I was just reading a dressmaking blog the other day that talked about this style of dress. I went back and found the post, hopefully it will help you: http://www.adventuresindressmaking.com/2010/06/corset-dress-is-everywhere.html. Someone also mentioned in the comments that this Vogue pattern is almost just like the dress she made http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v1174-products-11082.php?page_id=174. Good luck!
