I have not read the other comments, but those cups does NOT look good. I have had the same problem but with bras under tight clothes. I think it is when you have too small cups with padding, some make them look like that!

I would have never guessed you were a D in a million years. It looks like you are small chested and have cups stuck in to fill it out (which I say from experience because that’s how these dresses look on me). How is it possible to have a dress this low cut on a chest your size and somehow not have any cleavage? I don’t think this fits you properly.

Could it have anything to do with putting your hands on your hips like that? Just asking because in the pic from the front you are standing naturally and everything looks fine, but in the other pics putting your arms in that position could be throwing your posture off.

Hi! I’ve seen a lot of brides in badly fitted swertheart strapless necklines and yours is by no means the worst. It’s just a style that is incredibly popular but doesn’t work on everyone and/or they’re not always well made, even if expensive.

I’m a 30E and wore a similar style and I definitely got a bit of a pointy lifty look from the side but I quite liked it! However mine did fit well and gave me the right  rounded shape.

Is yours a corset back? Maybe that’s a good way to make your dress more adjustable without having to remake it?

As you have zero cleavage in this dress and you say you’re a Dear Daughter, I think the issue is the cups are actually too big/roughly correct size but the seam at the top is compressing you, pushing it all down and outwards. If I get pointy boobs in a bra that is why, and it’s why I avoid lots of brands for larger busts. If I want my boobs to look good I need to tighten over the nipple/bottom part of bust and just allow the material to be looser at the neckline/seam.

The best you can do is to make it into a corset back to give more material to play with,, then get the front seams that run down your nipple line flattened and taken in, to compress you a bit, pushing the cleavage up.

I hope this makes sense. I just thought saying ‘cups are too small’ does not really explain it. I mean, it fits perfectly but it is not the desired shape. Just like a 1950s bra, it’s a matter of taste! Your seamstress is not the one to work with as she doe not understand what YOU like.

It just looks way to small for your bust. Also have you tried sitting down and seen how you look that way? Im on another wedding forum and there was a busty bride who wore a sweetheart strapless, and the boning actually collapsed half way through the day. In her photos all you can see are her boobs, she was gutted.

leonatigra :  This makes so much sense. It’s not too small, she’s not pouring over it in any way. If it were too small, I’d expect to see even more cleavage. If it were too small enough to squish them flat, they wouldn’t look so perky! 🙂  It’s just not sitting properly for lack of a better way to say it. I think you captured it and have great suggestions. Good luck, OP!

Your dress is beautiful, but the boobs could definitely be better.  I’m making my own wedding dress and had this EXACT same problem with my dress but solved it. It’s not finished yet or I would show you the results. I must warn you, this is not a simple fix. They will need to remove all the lace overlay (I think this is an overlay? Hard to tell in the photos), reshape the main cups, exterior fabric and lining, then reapply the lace. It is totally fixable but will probably an expensive pain in the butt.  An easier, but not as thorough fix would be a serious push up bra. Push your boobs up to your chin and make them match the dress. That’s certainly cheaper and faster…but might look weird in a whole new way.

The heart of this issue isn’t that the dress is a weird shape – it’s that the dress is so obviously not YOUR shape. You either need to change the dress or change your shape.

winnipegbride :  I understand that but another seamstress can do a much better job and will save you lots of $$ that you want to spend on a new dress. You know what they say about doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Go somewhere else with your dress. It will be worth the little bit of money.
