@brokeninnj:  I would not consider that flat chested. I am a 36A and wemt with a strapless sweetheart neckline.

 

 

I wore a NUBRA and used some adhesive tape to help keep it in place.

I am smaller than you by a lot… 30A or 32A depending on the day. However, I bought a dress that really mimicked lingerie techniques on the top – boning, corsette, and I think it really depends on how well structured the top is. If the top can make your waist look tiny, then your boobs will look bigger. Usually I know that I look really good in V-neck and sweetheart necklines. Avoid straight necklines

@brokeninnj:  nope, was literally naked underneath! Haha. You’ll be surprised at the great structure of some dresses they have the ability to push up whatever you have in that area.

@brokeninnj: I’m even smaller at a 34A (and still have gapage) so 34B doesn’t sound too flat to me at least, but I get how you feel 100%! 

I ended up going with a sweetheart neckline under an illusion bateau neckline with sewed in cups. My reasoning is 1) I knew there is no way I could have clevage short of duct taping my mosquito bites together, 2) the sweetheart neckline gives the illusion of actual boob shaping, even without the boobs… I really loved it, felt feminine and enjoyed the definition my sewed in cups gave me without it looking fake as alot of pushups do for my itty-bitty titties… 

For the arms I don’t have alot of input, except to say that I feel like cap sleeves make my arms look large and I’ve got some tiny ol arms, so I’d stay away from cap sleeves and go with the bateau like mine below, or maybe a quarter or half sleeve….

I had the same issue, I am a 32-A post baby boobies so I get where your coming from on that. I didn’t want to wear a push-up or have any cleavage in my dress so to feel covered up/all tucked in I chose a dress with a straight-across bodice. Good luck!

@brokeninnj:  HUn I totally get you. I am offically a 32B but I look more like a 32A or smaller because my chest between my boobs is bony (I look anorexic in certain lighting)  also my boobs cannot touch each other, even if I force them…they simply will not touch. 

Well with all that said, I do take advantage of the fact that I can get away with a lot of dresses and styles (hello no bra, nipple covers will do just fine). Wink 

 

 

I tried on many styles that did look good, from the strapless sweetheart , to the straps, to crumbcatcher (if you want strapless look at this style), even backless (again taking advantage of the small chest)

Crumbcatcher strapless dress

 

I ended up choosing a boatneck with lace sleeves….very classic style 

 

But I cannot stress enough, no matter what you pick, get CUPS SEWN IN!!!!! 

I think you can go with anything with small boobs….remeber (almost) all the wedding dresses on bridal fashion week are modelled on small chested girls.
