A curvy Bride's adventures in finding shapewear on Amazon

I've been trying to find the right shapewear for my v-neck, lowish back dress and it was harder than I thought it would be! So I've listed out all the Amazon purchases I made (and now can't return) and what I think of them, in case anyone is in a similar boat.

I'm 5'4, just under 200lbs, and a bit top heavy(DDs). I've heard they can alter my dress to support my chest but I've never gone braless in my life and I don't want to try it for the first time on my wedding day. So my goal was to have something that supports my boobs and looks good for my husband-to-be.

First Pick: white steel boned overbust corset

This was $20 so I was super skeptical, but dammmmn, this one I looked the best in. It's sexy, supports the boobs, and you can't help but feel sexy in a traditional corset. Unfortunately the back is too high and shows, so I have to save it for something else. I have since heard that these $20-$30 corsets only last about 10 wears, so they're not very environmentally friendly, fwiw.

Second pick: nude underbust body suit

I got this one because it was kind of pretty: it has lace on the bottom. Though the bodysuits I found were always in nude or black, when I was looking for white/ivory. This one is open at the top. I was thinking it would kind of prop up my boobs and the dress boning would do the rest. Theoretically, I stand by this, but the back is also too high for my dress (womp womp.) Additionally, the butt part was a tad too loose, which is not usually an issue for me. It made me think that it's built for butt pads or something?

Third pick: ivory low back strapless bustier

I was excited about this one. It comes in cup sizes, which I think is a plus, and it's strapless without being some stick-on contraption (I have no faith that those things will work on DDs.) Not to mention it has boning and it's in ivory! I was still excited after I put it on. The back was low and I felt supported.

But then I took it for a test drive and I was fussing with it the whole time. It felt as if it could slide down at any moment. Not ideal for me.

Fourth and favorite pick: [low back overbust body suit](htt
