@MsBlackberry:  You know everyone is going to ask you to post a pic!

Two things from my experience:

1. It always looks worst to you, especially when you’re looking down at the  girls.

2.  People told me “WHOA” about my cleavage, so if people told you you looked nice I’m sure that’s true.  My dress was also secure and I was comfortable in it but hey, people don’t know that looking at you.  It really doesn’t bother me.

@MsBlackberry:  It’s so okay! Your wedding is a time when you can be wicked sexy if you want to! (Well maybe you didn’t want to, but maybe thinking of it as sexy instead of what you’re thinking now could help) As long as there were no Janet Jackson oopsies I am sure you looked amazing! 

And share a picture!!! Please!!!

Pics or it didn’t happen! 

Anyway, I think it was probably fine. It’s the culture, now, anyway, to have the girls on display.

@MsBlackberry:  32DDs be damned!! I have them too and understand your concern. I’m wondering if could mention it to your photographer and he/she could try to select photos for your album that don’t show a lot of cleavage?

@MsBlackberry:  I definitely can relate to you post. This happened to me in certain photos, too.

I bought a dress based on my measurements and what the designer had in terms of size that would accommodate them, but I was nervous even ordering my dress since I could not try on a gown in my size.

I ended up with some pics showing cleavage and others having a “double chest” effect, especially while seated. I actually chose NOT to wear the recommended longline bra for the very reason you noted — it pushes the bust UP and OUT of the top of the dress, and there was no way I was going to not have support, so I wore a traditional strapless bra instead. That ended up causing wrinkles and lines to appear on the bodice of my dress, which I definitely was not happy to see in my pro pics.

Believe it or not, I still  have not started on my wedding albums (notice my wedding date?) because of this issue and the fact that I need to find someone to Photoshop many of my images for me. (My photographer doesn’t do that type of editing but does not mind if I have someone else do it for me.)

I hope your pictures turn out to be much better than you fear. If not, I hope your photographer is able to edit the images for you.

It happened to me too, I cried at the pro pics of my “porn boobs” but I have slowly gotten over it, maybe when I’m old I will show them off to my granddaughters!

Trust me, I’ve seen a lot worse than that – maybe your cringe inducing ones are much worse? But I think that’s just normal well-endowed cleavage. 🙂


PS, It’s hard to say you look beautiful from such a small amount of pic, but I can tell you do! Love your dress.

I don’t think it’s the bad. I was expecting A LOT worse by the way you DNase it sound. Like borderline Jerry springer boobs. This looks okay. I think if anything truth be told they looked a little squished in but I don’t see them hanging all out. 🙂
