The only advice I have is to take it to a professional seamstress. They work miracles!

Hi Vibride!

I have the opposite issue. My dress is a size 10 but my bust is a 38D. But my solution could probably work for you too. I am having (like the previous bride suggested) a professional seamstress remove the zipper and replace it with a corset back. This way you can tighten the dress as much as you need around the top.

Good luck and congrats!

definitely go to a professional seamstress… they can take out a “V” of material from each side seam to pull it in, then they can put in side darts at the side-boob-line to make it coil over whatever chest you have… it’s totally doable (though if there’s tons of beading, it might be pricey), so just ask… 

the corset would work by taking out a large amount of the back material and adding a corset that will draw the material in, but you still might have to have bust darts or other things done so any “air” under the cups is brought in and they aren’t standing off of you out in space (even when the bodice is sitting against you)… 😉  of course, you may be a 0-2 with a nice rack (heehee) so “air” under your cups might not be a problem. 😉

but yeah, take it to a professional seamstress and see what he/she has to say about it… it’s the only way to know for sure, and also to price it…
