Hmmm, that seems to have an awful lot of boob room! Would you consider making it a halter neck? That could work. Do you know a good dressmaker, one with experience like this?

 

ETA Sorry that sounded like I was remarking on your boobs, I just meant the dress does seem to have a lot of fabric in that general area!

I am confused – – Did you have the dress custom made, copied from the original pictures on the right?  If you had the dress custom made it does appear that she made the top too big too high and too bulky.  I think it will look beautiful strapless w/ a sweetheart neckline.  Are you comfortable with a strapless dress?

You should go to a good seamstress and ask THEIR advice. Most of us have opinions, but I think you want to know what a professional can do.

You may just need to shorten the straps.

I agree with @coffeekitty – – the dress looks like it fits you great throughout the body, its just the top that appears too big and too high cut. And take it to a professional and tell them what you’re wishing it could look like. Once you talk it out with a professional I am sure you won’t have any more worries Wink

OH – – keep us updated Laughing

Yeah, I think you need to do something and made the right choice by making an appointment with a local dressmaker. The top does look too big, and you have big boobs, so it must be really big! I think with the right dressmaker, she could alter it to strapless for you, or make the top more like the inspiration picture. Maybe if it actually fit in the chest you would like it with the straps! Good luck, let us know how it goes!!!

I’m feeling so very sorry for you. I can imagine you flipped out…However, do NOT worry. I’m absolutely sure that the dressmaker can fix this for you, these kinds of alterations shouldn’t be a problem at all…The V-neck looks GREAT on you. Excellent choice. I’m sure everything will work out just fine. You’ll be a WONDERFUL bride……..!!!!!! GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY….

I think with some alterations, your dress will look more like what you are envisioning from your inspiration.  Things always look 100 x better when they fit correctly.  I would maybe see if your tailor can take the top down just a hair so that there is more strap and less fabric at the top where the top of the dress meets the strap… other than that, just be cautious of going too low- don’t want to be too “boobalicious” on the wedding day (maybe your mom is worried about that?).
