    I see what you mean, I'd take it to a seamstress. (Please share your cost estimate if you have one) : (33 votes)

    This seems like an easy enough DIY if you know how to sew. Try to fix it yourself! : (14 votes)

    I can see what you mean. It’s not terribly obvious but if it’s something that would bug you I would definitely take it to get fixed. I paid about $40 for the actual cups and for them to be sewed in so I would assume it should be less than that.

    Good luck!

    @sunsetchristy:  LOL it makes me uncomfortable how much time I just spent staring at your bust trying to see a difference.  I honestly don’t see it and who is going to be looking at THAT area that intently on your wedding day?  Could it just be a size different in your actual breasts making the dress sit differently?

    Oh! I see it. Really only in the really close up shot, the distance one looks fine.

    I couldn’t see it.  I looked at the pictures first to see if I could find anything wrong and then read your post.  Even after reading your description of the problem, I still couldn’t see anything.

    @sunsetchristy:  I voted that it’s no big deal. However, that’san incredibly simple fix if you have a good eye for symetry (or know how to use measuring tape) Ripping out the seam and sewing the cup in the way you want would be easy peasy.

    Going to get personal here, are your boobs different sizes? I have probably a 1/2 cup difference between the two, and that could account for why the dress sits every so slightly differently on the right than the left.  But I agree with @mchitt329, I had to stare at your bust for far to long to even notice the difference.  I would hope no one would be staring at your bust like that on your wedding!  I think it is fine to not try additional alterations.

    ETA: didn’t realize you noticed the cups were sewn in differently.  I think that is something you could easily fix yourself if you wanted to, or still just leave it.

    I wouldn’t have noticed it if you hadn’t said anything. I really had to look for it to notice.

    @sunsetchristy:  I see what you mean, but I wouldn’t have noticed it if you didn’t mention it. I think it looks fine.

    I can see it, but I never would have noticed if I wasn’t looking for it. If you’re confident with sewing, then I think you can probably fix it yourself. I doubt it would be an expensive adjustment if you took it to someone professional.

    I wouldn’t do nothing though- it will drive you nuts in your photos, and those are forever!

    I really wouldn’t have noticed anything if you hadn’t mentioned the subject and it wasn’t until you posed the close-up of the cups that I could see any evidence of anything being uneven. If it really bugs you (and I suspect it would me!) you could easily unpick and resew the cups.

    If you looked at everyone else’s dresses, it wouldn’t be too hard find asymmetry. Our left side isn’t the same as our right, even our face shows it. I really wouldn’t bother. Also, best to show the photo first but mention concnetrate on boobs for ten secs and then ask did you notice they were uneven. Tbh, I don’t even know how a seamstress can fix it. I’d say just relax and enjoy your two weeks!!

    Wouldn’t have noticed if you didn’t say anything. Since you did I do see it. Get it fixed if it bugs you – I would.

    yes the left one looks lower/ more to the side. It looks like it would be a fairly easy fix
