As PPs said, alterations can fix that. I had the same problem with my dress but no time for alterations so I wore 2 padded bras on top of each other to fill in the space!

I had many consultants tell me the same thing that “it will be altered.” I finally had one consultant tell me the truth. Yes, the bust area will be altered to fit you, the cups cannot be. I have seen some friends of mine look like they got a boob job on their wedding day! Don’t be fooled into thinking they can make it fit, it’s just the style of dress. Some designers are geard wayy more towards small-chested women than others and do not add that kid of structure (Nicole Miller, Monique Lhuillier). After I tried on their dresses, I realized how ridiculous I looked in the others and went with one that actually fit.

And I didn’t want to have to wear a ton of padding to “fill it out,” I wanted to look like myself!

Don’t worry, it’s totally normal. If it makes you feel better I wear a 40 DDD and most of the dresses I tried on had do be clipped at the bust because they were all huge!

It is completely normal. I had to get my dress taken in a lot at the chest in order to fit my hips and butt.

I know what you mean, I want to look like myself! It’s not like I think the guests will be staring at my boobs, but for me it’s very noticeable and weird. The gap doesn’t show, but the size difference is just too big.
I got the impression that the breast part couldn’t be changed, but I’ll ask specifically about that next time. I tried some strapless gowns and they looked better and more natural on me, so maybe I’ll go for that instead, or another designer.

same! My dress is mori lee 5108 and i feel like the boobs part of the bodice looks pointy and big. alterations said that cups wouldn’t give me enough support, and that i just needed a good push up bra! (i’m not very big by the way, i am an odd-sized 32D.)
