I do, but it is very slight.  Is it possible for you to have cups sewn in to match your actual cup sizes?  You have that fabulous Pronovias gown, don’t you?

It is noticeable, but I wouldn’t have noticed it if it wasn’t … staring at your chest? LOL.  Maybe look into a bra shop and see if they can custom make one for you.  Something strapless, backless, etc. There has to be a solution!

My suggestion is to go on a strapless bra manhunt.  There are some good ones out there.  I’ve had great experience with Le Mystere push up.  Buy that in a C and then maybe use onee of those ‘chicken cutlets’ like these http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT<>prd_id=845524446150005&afsrc=1&site_refer=GGLBASE001&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=0891282001423′ defer=’deferto fill out the smaller cup?

 

Btw, totally wouldn’t have noticed one was smaller than the other if you hadn’t commanded us to look. 😛

I would talk to your seamstress and see if she can add a regular cup to one side and a padded cup to the other side.  Or if you can only get regular cups have you thought about using those bra insert things:

Good luck your dress looks great and if you hadn’t pointed it out I would never have known!

Actually when I went to my fitting to have bra cups sewn in, she said she could sew in three cups per boob to “bump me up a few cup sizes”. Maybe you could do that on one side and just one cup for the other?

I opted no by the way. I mean, the Fiance isn’t going to be surprised by my B’s, but I think he’d find it hilarious if I walked down the aisle with full C’s!

I think your seamstress should be able to put some padding on the one side to even things out for you. I agree though, I wouldn’t have noticed if I wasn’t looking for it. I’m sure there must be something out there with how common (unfortunately) single side masectomies are these days. There’s gotta be bras with a false boob for those ladies that opt not to have reconstruction and an implant.

Yes, though mine are not as different.  The biggest problem with large boobs is the support issue.  Sewing in cups could help, but will it provide you support so you don’t bounce all over the place?  That is what I constantly worry about as a busty girl myself.  Is there a way to use a corset or something with boning in addition to the cups that would hold you up?  I have used corsets in dresses before and haven’t had to worry about a bra because the corset holds me in and keeps everything even!  If you could find one with a lower V so it wouldn’t show between the triangle top of your dress, that might work!  

I do have to agree with others though…I would not have noticed any difference if I wasn’t told to look for it!  You dress is gorgeous!

I have the same “prob”. I added an extra cup to my B-size boob…to match up to my C-cup on the other side. Plus my cap-sleeves help “pull it all up” to make it somewhat even. Don’t fret…no one will notice. Apparently a lot of us have the same issue…but don’t have enough “boobs” to come out and talk about it.  🙂
