Red Dress
How, if at all, is the under bodice structure attached to the bodice of the red dress? It seems a mystery to me! I see that the bodice of the red dress is attached to the skirt with swing tacks.

When the underbodice ends an inch or more from the neckline of the bodice of a dress, such as in the red dress and the black taffeta, what is to stop the neckline from sagging down against the under bodice? Especially when there is a loose fit.

While I understand the purpose and structure of the underbodice, the method of joining to the dress itself has remained a puzzle for me. This article series was actually what made me join FR and YWU, to hopefully find answers to my questions!
