I don’t have before and after photos, but i had the cups taken out of my dress because they made my boobs look huge! The seamstress almost had a heart attack when I asked her to do it, but it made the dress look so much better! I do this to all of my clothing when something comes with padding or cups. It goes right to my tailor and comes out.

@rvolk08:The FIRST dres sposted is MY dress I have ordered…but I would like to add a ONE strap to it like the 2nd pic…Any ideas of how to make it look like that ‘scrunch’ look not so modern but w/ a more ‘lace’ look?  Post any pics please!:)

@Nicoley1985:wow that is a really great idea I would have never thought of! I absolutely LOVE the bernadette but I personally don’t want straps on my dress so that is a great idea!

@cherryblossomlove: I actually have a brooch on 1 side of my dress.  Here is a pic from the sample I tried on last year.  I think your dress would be great w/ the bow removed and a brooch, even bigger than mine, added ๐Ÿ™‚  Also, with mine, I didn’t wear a necklace…just earrings & a bracelet.

Bride2BeeVA28:  I know this is an old post BUT I am doing the same as you. Removing beading and adding a sash ๐Ÿ˜‰ good taste!

I didn’t fall in love with my dress until I covered the beading with a sash. Then I had that moment ๐Ÿ™‚
