Try chicken cutlets!  They do wonders!

first of all, your dress is beautiful! if you are looking to add some oomph up top, maybe just stick with something that fits the rest of you well and go up a cup size & throw some cutlets in there.

ETA: haha! great minds think alike!

I would try some cutlets as well. 

I do have to add though- the pic you’re hoping to achieve is TOO much cleavage for me!  I’ve been a wedding coordinator for a long time and while I remember very few gowns over the years, the brides who had a little too much showing up top totally stick out in my mind! 

It looks like maybe with alterations and removing/folding two of the ‘rows’ would be a great start.  It’s a beautiful gown!   Good luck!

I love your dress!  It’s funny, I’m the exact opposite. I have a D cup and I am paranoid about showing too much cleavage at my wedding.  I have a sweetheart neckline and ordered my dress larger so I’d have full coverage.  I think your dress, once the top is altered will be perfect!  So classy!  I agree on getting a long line bra and using chicken cutlets.  That should give you enough, but not too much.

@chrispygal: I swear that’s always the way it is. I wore a specific bra to keep those puppies apart LOL

When doing alterations, tell them your concern… they may be able to sew a “regular” bra into it with “cutlets” or gel or whatever to help boost.  But that way it will be attached to the dress and make it easier for you- you wont be pulling the bra/corset/whatever up all night.  Good luck… and your dress is beautiful!

@OmigoshesGrrrl: I thought they were telling her to put actual chicken cutlets in her bra! I was like say what!? 

The dress is beautiful! A corset is going to pull you in and push you up. A really good one will.

The reference picture you posted where she’s more showing clevage; her dress is pulled down or shortened. If you compare, your dress goes up higher on your torso than hers does. Yours goes all the way up to the armpit, hers doesn’t.

I’m just having bra cups that are padded sewn it, with a properly fitted dress and maybe lowering the neckline like others suggested it might just be enough.
