I am sorry, but lengthening the straps is not going to help your situation. You will need to let the seams out, in order for it to go over your bust. It should have at least a 5/8″ seam allowance, so you could potentially let it out a 1/2″ on each side. Your best bet would be to do that or just save yourself the headache and purchase yourself another one for $50.00 in the size that you are now. I am a seamstress and, if it were me, I would just purchase another one for that price. It really wouldn’t be worth it to try to alter it yourself and a seamstress would probably charge you close to the $50.00.

Yeah the green color is on sale for 40 bucks right now… it would be better to just get another one.

Could you let out the straps a little to make it comfortable and also wear something under it in a similar or contrasting color? I am rather busty and I have worn cami’s under dresses like that frequently. Otherwise, I look like a porn star lol.
