So, I decided to alter my neckline to sweetheart some time ago, and it has been in process. Due to the construction of the dress we decided not to due a true sweetheart, just tack it down in a sweetheart shape and so far it looks great!
ive not tried it on twice since the change and the only issue is it is very tight in the area between my upper breast connecting with my armpit area. This is clearly the boning underneath the bodice. Nothing was actually changed with the actual construction of the bodice there though. This could be due to me lifting a lot of weights in the past three months though.
at this juncture I am one month away from the wedding and it is too late to do anything about this area on my body and I certainly don’t want to reconstruct the bodice. Anyone done anything creative with their boning to either cushion that “digging” feeling or have any suggestions?
i don’t have any pictures of the alteration but I’m going back on Thursday. There is a little fold of skin too which bothers me ever so slightly. Here’s a picture of unaltered dress.
