Plan A was to wear the dress without a bra.
Plan B was to take the dress to my local lingerie shop and buy a bra that would work with the dress.
Then I came up with Plan C.
As you may or may not know, I am an Avon lady and while perusing the recent Avon catalog, I found something that might solve my problem: Body Illusions Seamless Smoothing Cami, which claims to smooth the midsection and back bulge and slim the entire waistline. It also had a roll-resistant hem and adjustable straps.
Its thin adjustable straps and $12.99 price tag sold me, so I ordered it on Sunday and it arrived yesterday.
Right after dinner, I tried it on. It looked too small out of the box, but stretched easily to fit and mold my full figure. That was all good and well, but would it work with the dress?
I slipped on the dress, zipped it up and examined the results in the mirror. After a slight adjustment to the cami straps, it was perfect!
I was so happy with the cami that I plan to buy another, as well as purchase a Body Illusions Bodysuit.
