I am going later this week to have my dress altered. It is the Galina shantung taffeta sweetheart ballgown. My biggest concern is that the dress will not stay up through the night. I purchased a size 4, and I probably needed a 0 or a 2. Has anyone worn this dress and what alterations did you have done so that the dress would stay up?! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I had this dress. I am quite a bit larger than you, and have a 36I chest. Strapless was not my first choice, but I didn’t have many choices due to time constraints. I ended up LOVING this dress. I ended up having the sides taken in a little bit, and a piece (from the bow) added to the top so I wasn’t flashing people. I wore a bustier, and had it sewn in. I didn’t have any problems with the dress sliding down after the alterations.
Having it taken in and maybe some soft cups added may help it stay up!

BakeosaurusRex: Hi! I absolutely love this dress and have been looking at buying a preowned gown. I have found a few listings but was curious what it looked like on a bride that was a bit bigger up top. I am a 36FF and have yet to find someone even close to that. Would there be any way you could send me a pic or 2 so I could get an idea of what it might look like? Also, what size did you end up buying?
And are you at all looking to sell it?
Thanks so much!
