So I’ve been getting the dreaded bridal nerves lately. I tackle one fear, then find another. At first it was having enough decor, then it was calligraphy signs, now it’s dress cleavage. There’s absolutely nothing I can do about y boobs. Unless I wear a turtle neck they find a way to show up. My dress is beautifu, but I’m nervous that there’s too much boobage. But I’m stuck about what to do. I think taping them down a little in the bra might help them from shifting up throughout the night. I don’t know, I’m just at a loss. I know my mother is going to hate the cleavage. The seamstress let out the hips so it would fit better but then the whole dress dropped like an inch and now it’s a bit low at the bust. It fits better, but I feel like boobzilla.
And here’s a photo of the bustle. The seamestress cut the top layer from the bottom and each one gets bustled at three points to create a waterfall effect. I also had buttons added to the back at the top.
I have a baby pink beaded chiffon wrap from prom that I’m going to dig up and maybe wear during dinner and between dancing.

So i read this as “booze-illa” and thought this was going to be about you drowning your bridal woes every night in a bottle of wine….
I think the dress doesn’t just do nothing to hide your boobs but it actually pushes them up further! I can see what you mean. Are you able to ask if she can let the bust area out at all… it looks to tight. I had boob issues with a lot of dresses I tried to and ended up getting one with a lace front so you can’t really notice the cleavage.
The bustle looks really good!

The bust area is actually a little loose! I can stick my hand in it. I think the problem, actually, is the weight of the fabric pulling on the dress when it’s bustled. Comparing the dress photos to the bustled photos I think that’s what is happening. I’m going to find a wrap or something so I can cover up, but with 10 days until the wedding alterations are done, I can’t change anything.

@michiru4ever: firstly, love the bustle and your dress! Seondly, are you wearing the right sized bra? I usually see the overflow boobage effect when the bra isn’t the right size

No that’s just how my boobs are, I always get that crease. I’ve been properly fitted. They’re just very full but not firm so they crease. I think tape might help.

I was going to suggest not wearing a bra and or take any sewn in cups out. The dress has enough shape that I don’t think the “girls” need the support. The dress is beautiful and you look very pretty. Don’t stress……there are women who would kill to have this problem.

I want to first say that you are gorgeous, your dress is beautiful, and together it’s really stunning. Also, you are quite booby, but if it makes you feel any better you really wear them well! I don’t have any suggestions, other than trying a different undergarment, but I wanted to say that you look lovely!

Since the top of your dress is chiffon I think it could be fairly easy to match. Call your seamstress and ask her to help you. She may be able to add coverage, adjust fit, or figure out some way to make you more comfortable.
If *you* are going to worry the it is worth persuing. If you are comfy then rock it. You look terrific.

I love the dress, especially the back! All that matters is that you’re comfortable when you walk down the aisle. I hope you get your boobs under control! (If you want, I think you look great).

You look so so beautiful! Your dress is gorgeous. I agree with what the PP said about a seamstress being able to add something for a bit more cleavage coverage. I adore the lacey straps though!

Holy Moly you look amazing in that dress. My fiance would be literally drooling. If you’re uncomfortable with the cleavage could the seamstress make the straps slightly shorter so the whole thing is held up a little higher on your body?

That dress is gorgeous and youll look amazing regardless. Im big busted too. Have you tried the dress without a bra on? Im a bit of a bra freak and my first thought is that your bra is a few sizes too small.

@michiru4ever: your dress (and you) are so perfect I could cry! I agree that the straps might could be pulled up if it really is the bustle pulling the top down and I bet that is what it is!!

So gorgeous- I wish I had 1/4 of the boobage you have! Yes your seamstress should definitely be able to add a little coverage!
