they can absolutely take in the bust a little so the cups aren’t quite as large.

I had bra cups sewn into the dress. They have various sizes and should be able to make sure they are big enough to fill you out.

I have the exact same dilemma with my dress! the  chest area kinda dips in because I don’t have enough “meat” to fill it up… I’m trying to do without alterations in that area and trying to fix it but not sure how to… let me know how it goes!

I’ve had the opposite problem where I am very busty and didn’t fit the cup right. The original cup in the dress came to a point at a very different point than my natural shape so it looked like a plum sized bubble off my actual bust. They were totally able to pin and reshape it, so I would assume the same would be true for you.

I’m also small on top. My dress has princess seams down the bust. She took in the seam at the bust and on the side and added cups.

hmm.. i wonder how much all that alteration is going to cost! I can only imagine my sticker price shock…. probably similar to the gas price right now!

I wore a long-line bra under my dress, and had the same issue you are having. I did not have any cups sewn into the dress, but the seamstress was able to take the dress in at the bust, so it fit perfectly on my wedding day.

@hedgeknits how much did you pay in general for that? i feel like taking in at the bust is one of the major alterations done for the dress.. so it must cost a lot!

I had cups sewn into my dress and I’m wearing a longline bra.  With all that, there is a little bit of a dip right underneath my chest.  It’s hard to describe.  There was really nothing else that could be done, so hopefully I can figure out a fix or hope that it’s not that noticable.  I may have to find something to fill that area.  I also have double sided tape to help hold the dress up as well.

@JCar this is totally my situation! I tried buying those XXXpush-up bra (it was ridiculously embarassing going through check-out), and even then those didn’t work, and because they were XXXtra heavy, it was even worse!
