Mine does the same as well.  Boo!  I am planning on wearing my hair 1/2 up 1/2 down and hopefully it will cover it a little bit.

Take your hand and smooth it in the cup.  Just like they do with the back fat.  You should be able to get it to smooth out.

Your seamstress should be able to fix that for you. From what you are stating, it seems like it is too tight in that area. Your seamstress should be able to let it out or put a privacy panel over the area; depending on where the overhang is.

Do you have a picture of what you are referring too? That would help us help you 🙂

Just know that I have seen this same thing even on teeny-tiny brides so don’t let it get you down.  Seriously, google some pics of strapless dresses on real brides, or watch the wedding shows… I would say that 80% of brides in strapless dresses seem to have this problem and what’s odd (to me) is that no one seems to even mention it as a problem on some of thse dress/wedding related TV shows!?

One of the many reasons why I dont’ like strapless dresses (even though I am wearing one) and I am having sleeves added, and maybe some fabric along the top edge, along with some alterations to the neckline, to try and combat the hangover effect.

okay here is some exercise advise since that is what you are looking for. there is nothing magical that will make this go away but this will help you tone that area up for sure. Lay on your back on the floor and take some small hand weights and put them up in front you your face with your arms slightly bent. then slowly open your arms up and have them almost touch the floor and then bring them back up. i believe they are called butterflies. i know they have a machine for it at the gym but that is what i do at home. on a side not my Fiance just said to make sure to do light weights with high reps. too much weight will start to build muscle which will make is bigger not smaller. i hope this makes sense. send me a PM if you have any questions. good luck and you will look amazing!

I agree that alterations are the way to go and that the dress is probably too tight.  It could also be your bra pushing everying up.  Try the dress on without the bra and see if that helps.
