I had the same problem, but I guess that’s what alterations are for!

mrs_mose:  took the words out of my mouth! Yep, that’s what alterations are for! Lol.  They shouldn’t leave a gap if they alter it properly.

Bit of padding probably wouldn’t go astray.

I have A cups and most dresses were way too big for my chest.  I had cups sewn in to my actual dress, and the alterations tightened the chest right up to mine.  It was a perfect fit. 🙂

I had a bra sewn in to mine, for the same reason. I’d always try them on with a strapless and they looked great. Then when I got mine in, and just tried it on with no bra – it looked SO dumb and awkward. I immediately went out and found some bras that could work, and my seamstress picked the one that would fit great in it, but also fit me.

Not to hijack the thread, but ladies who have had cups put in, did you provide the cups or did the salon have them on hand? 

OP I’m small too and I’m either buying a push up bra or having the cups put in!

BWLE:  I bought a bra from Kohls that my alterations gal sewed in. But, I know that some salons around my city did have some you could buy, and then would have to have someone sew them in.

Cookiie:  My dress was like that, too. Alterations will take care of it.

Cookiie: Lol. That’s the issue with structured dresses (esp. with sewn in cups), lovely dress in the pic btw. I don’t really fill out my dress either. I will probably be wearing a strapless push-up bra under the cups to avoid gape, cheaper than getting the current ones removed and fuller cups inserted/having the bodice tailored further. You may not want the boost, for me that’s just the most economical solution (it may seem like false advertising, but he knows what he’s getting). If you go for the pictured dress the illusion neckline or whatever it’s called will probably make the gape less visible. Good luck!

Cookiie: I had the same problem too!  I would like to knwo who they are measuring when they make dress sizes haha. However- if your dress has boning AND lace they might not be able to alter the cups that much- when you buy a dress ask them specifically if you can remove the boning.

Cookiie:  I think wedding dresses, like most other kinds of clothing, need to be altered to fit perfectly. I think it’s quite normal to buy a size that will fit your largest measurement, and then have the other bits tailored to fit you.

Cookiie:  I had the exact same issue! Actually, my dress has a bit of wiring and padding up top, but I am hoping to remove that in alterations. If not, I guess I actually get to have boobs for a day, lol!

BWLE:  my alterations lady had bra inserts she could add. I wasn’t happy with it, so she said I could bring her any bra & she could sow it in. She also highly recommended the stick on cups. 

OP, I had the same problem with my dress. The cups were literally inches away from my chest. my alterations lady made me feel completely confident that she will fix it. She’s taking it in from the side & some off the top as well. When you’re in a dress, pinch it from the sides (like directly under the armpit). It should give you an idea of what it should look like
