I was so self-conscious about getting a strapless dress, that I made sure that nothing like that would happen with mine… and actually I picked a dress that has a tulle ruffle at the top to lessen the amount of full skin exposure.  I wanted to avoid armpit cleavage!

Are you having cups sewn in?  Your seamstress should tailor it so that you don’t have to worry.  "Don’t lift your arms" is not an acceptable alternative!

My dress is corset back and I haven’t had that problem… and I have a large chest. I was told (by the salon) that they could make a dress corest back if it didn’t have one, I’m not sure if this is an option for you though b/c they would need extra fabric.

I did not even think to try to lift my arms during my dress fitting! Good that you pointed this out, I will definitely try it next time! Definitely let them know that "don’t lift your arms" is not a solution that works for you, and what else can they do.
