Don’t wear a corset- it will prob make bumps in the bodice. And Uncomfy. What exactly are you needing? Support? Padding? 

my dress was hayley paige keaton which is a similar shape to yours but my boobs are way smaller. I had cups sewn in and I used chicken cutlety boob insert things.

yes, i have a similar problem! i went for alterations and they said cups wouldn’t give me enough support (so odd, i’m not particularly big or anything). they told me to get a push up bra, otherwise they’d charge me $40 to sew padding into my own bra. dont think you need a corset, just a good bra?? let me know what you did!!

I’m a Gemma bride too (high five!) and you definitely shouldn’t have to wear a corset to get a nice shape in that dress. I’m a 32D wearing a US size 8 and the dress fits like a glove (without any alterations). The chest and waist are very fitted – to the point where I probably couldn’t wear anything under it, even if I wanted to. It supports my bust very nicely and gives a bit of a pushup effect (maybe too much!). My dress also came with built-in cups – it was a sample though so yours may not.

I would definitely talk to your seamstress again because they should be able to fit your dress in such a way that it flatters your figure, especially since you have a fairly normal bust size. We’re fairly similar bra sizes so feel free to PM me if you want pictures of the fit of my dress to show your seamstress.

Best of luck!
