I think you’re just fine!  That dress looks awesome on you!

At first I thought you meant boob job regret. 🙂

I think you look pretty (the ruching is very flattering on you), and you do not need to stress! Even if you can’t “fix” your look, it’s not so bad that you look bad. 

However, I do have some improvement tips.

Straight strapless styles are generally no bueno on bustier women since it tends to give the uniboob or monoboob look. More importantly, the very top of the dress looks too tight so that it’s smushing your girls downward instead of allowing them to sit up high and proud! This is part of the uniboob problem. 

Since this was your final alteration. I would suggest loosening the top of the bust a smidge (very doable if its a corset back) and investing in some amazing lifting/separating undergarments (the secret to battling uniboob is a great bra).

@helena31:  Do you have a strapless bra?  Is it sewn into the dress?  How much longer until the wedding?  

 

I have suggestions, based on your answers.  Smile

I like it! It really pulls you in at the right spot, and gives you a beautiful shape! But I do agree that maybe loosening it a smidge with the corset might give a bit more shape to the bust. Buthonestly, I think it’s beautiful how it is! Please don’t be upset – you look AMAZING!

@helena31:  I also agree that loosening the corset at the very top!

@helena31:  So much good news from your last comment. Corset backs to the rescue. 🙂 Honestly, if you completely cover your entire bust without proper undergarments, it will actually make your boobs appear bigger (hence your concern that all you notice is your chest). If you let the top a bit so it doesn’t cover everything (not in a scandalous way) and then get the proper undergarments, it should actually balance things out.

ETA: Would a longline bra work?

Don’t cry! You look great! Maybe if you can find a nicer bra your chest will look even better, but even if you look just like this, it will be beautiful!

Honestly, I have seen some unflattering dresses on this website – and when that happens, I choose not to say anything at all if it’s too late for the person to get another dress. However, in your case, I sincerely think that you look good!

@helena31:  ^^^^^ That photo shows EXACTLY what I meant! Only a smidge, still tight enough to hold it in….not enough to let it all fly free! hehe. just to sort of let the bust “sit” rather than be held for ransom against the chest! haha. My step-sister has disproportionally large breasts, so these are tips she and I have discovered that work for her. Like I said, don’t stress because you look great anyway!!! xx
