waterbaby:  I think you may be seeing things that aren’t there!!  You look fabulous!!  I’m not trying to devalue how you feel about it, BUT, it’s one of those things that you’re being over critical about because aren’t we all our own worst critics??  I’m sure no one else, ESPECIALLY your FH sees it like that!  

On the flipside, I’ve been to every lingerie and bridal store in the tri state area trying to find an undergarment that GIVES me boobs, b/c I look like a pre-pubescent boy in my dress.  Le sigh.

waterbaby:  your boning should absolutely be skin tight- it should make your profile smaller and suck your waist and back in, and make your bewbs stand up/together nicely. Hell it should be *almost* hard to breathe! There def should be no *sproing* possible.

So no, it is not right. Def go back- it needs to be taken in more. Get another seamstress if this one doesnt get whats up- thats basic knowledge. (for people who fit dresses for a living anyway).

waterbaby:  I gotta be honest, you look great. I would be afraid to mess with the boning At this point. Yes, you look curvy but not like Jessica Rabbit:-)  give it a day and see what you think. I am definitely not seeing what you are from these pictures.

I think the bust needs to be taken in more as well. The top of the dress should definitely not fit like it is and while you have a great figure, I feel like the ill-fitting bust detracts from it. Like MrsBuesIebee said, you still have time. Take it in as soon as you can.

Yes, the bust does need to go in. Its looks like your seamstress just took it in the back for the zipper, but still left you 3 sizes too big in the front. She should take from the front as well (via the sideseam, not just center back). But like I said- this is absolutely possible in your timeframe, dont panic.

waterbaby:  I see what you mean, before I even read your post. It looks like you had stuffed your bra! I have no suggestions, but thought I’d give my two cents so you wouldn’t think you were crazy. I’m sure it’s fixable though.

Ya, it’s definitely off… 

Is the dress tight? Dresses like that are usually quite tight and based on the photo of you in your bridal shower dress, your wedding dress looks like it could possibly be tighter (especially in the chest), but also the waist and possibly hips. How’s does it feel? What does the back look like?

 waterbaby:  You’re welcome. I understand how you feel because I had a similar problem and my mom and sis kept telling me I was crazy. However, I couldn’t let it slide and went back to the tailor who ended up taking in the bust on the sides and as well as directly underneath my boobs. It looked sooo much better after that and my mom and sis agreed that it was a good decision. Good luck!

I can see what others say that if you want your chest to look smaller you could take it in but in all honesty, I think it looks amazing!

waterbaby:  I actually think the “side boob” you are describing looks better than no side boobs. It looks natural and makes your figure look even better! I wouldn’t worry about it. If it really bothers you, take it to a seamstress and see what they can do. What matters most of all is how you feel in your dress.

As the bust size of a dress increases, so does the cup size, even if it is the same cup size. A “C” cup in a 32 is way smaller than a “C cup in a 34 etc .

I think you still have the cup that came with the dress that was 3 sizes too big. The cup size itself needs to be made smaller, not just the number of inches around at the bust.

If you look at your first and last pics, the cup area takes up at least 1/3 of the distance from your shoulder to the waist. 1/4 would be a more normal proportion.
