@brokeninnj:  I would hardly say a 34B is flat chested or no boobs. Just have the seamstress add cups to the dress if you a self-conscious about it.

@brokeninnj:  I am 34B, 5″5 and 125 lbs. Here’s my dress. The seamstress will definately be doing some magic in the bust area for me.

Congratulations on loosing so much weight! I think a sweetheart neckline is flattering on many women, including those with a smaller bust. If you’re concerned about looking “baggy” definitely look into different types of undergarmets with a modest push up effect or slight padding. I think the gown you posted is really pretty and I LOVE that color!

Another flattering neckline, in my opinon, would be a bateau style neckline.

 

Perhaps to ease your mind about any loose skin on your arms maybe consider something that has a sweetheart neckline as well as some sleeves. Gowns like this are so pretty, IMO

@brokeninnj:  Maybe you just feel like you’re flat chested because of the weight loss (congrats!!!) and the effects of 3 babies? 100 pounds down is a huge difference, maybe you just need to adjust? I’m a B cup too and nobody in their right mind would call me flat chested, honestly! lol 

Have you been properly measured for a bra since having lost the weight? Go to a specialised shop and make sure you get a properly fitting bra (padded if you want some more va-va-voom!) before trying on any dresses. A good foundation makes a huuuge difference, trust me! A good bra will lift and support you and put your boobies where mother nature originally placed them 🙂

As for dresses, just have fun trying a bunch of them on! What’s the worst that can happen – a few silly pictures? 🙂 And don’t worry about loose skin on your arms, that’s what boleros and sleeves are there for. Just relax  – if you managed to lose all that weight, finding a dress for your new figure should be a walk in the park!

ETA: I loooove the dress with sleeves that PP suggested, gorgeous!

@brokeninnj:  That’s an amazing weight loss, congrats!  I have the same size chest and found a dress that compliments me and makes me look a little bigger haha.  I couldn’t go with anything deep cut (I actually hated the way sweetheart necklines looked on me which made me sad)  I went with a little “dip” rather than a full sweetheart.  

I do agree with PPs, your seamstress will be able to work magic.  Just get some fuller cups and make sure it fits nicely and you will look great!

@brokeninnj:  I too am a 34B and although I wish they were a little bigger, fortunately being smaller chested means we can get away with practically any style of dress. 

I agree that sweetheart necklines do flatter smaller chests, you could also have cups seen in. I think I’m going for double 😉 34B is definitely not flat chested however if it’s more of a ‘lift’ you’re after try and find a great fitting strapless bra that pushes those babies up too! Or maybe try a dress with straps that you could wear a extra padded bra with like the VS Miraculous ones <<or whatever they’re called ha.

Good luck x

My dress for reference, this was with no underwear/cups or anything and it still looks like i have something. Can’t wait for the alterations.

I am a 36B and this is what I wore. I also had on a bra because I would truly have little shape without one! I found this neckline very flattering on me, and it gave me a nice chest (pic doesn’t do it justice). I also liked certain gowns with sleeves.

Whatever dress that has a sweetheart neckline. Get a victoria secret bombshell bra, use tanning lotion and makeup to create a false cleavage. Sometimes you got to give yourself what mother nature didn’t. 😉
