Totally inappropriate. I have double D’s and I did NOT fall out of my dress. It’s gorgeous by the way. I’m sure when you tried it on you did not notice anything falling out?? 🙂

If you’re worried use some fashion tape. Also, with alterations it will fit like a glove! If she says anything thing again just tell her it’s taken care of and end it.

ETA: I also have DD’s so I plan on using tape!

If she’s normally nice, maybe she was just concerned for you (even if she has no reason to be!).

She might be someone who feels uncomfortable in a strapless dress herself or just very unused to seeing you wearing something like a wedding dress.

Many people probably do not realize just how much support is built into a well made wedding dress!  I’m not huge busted, but normally there is no way I would feel comfortable without a bra, what if a top slips a bit or something?  In my dress though I just had cups sewn in, and I felt comfortably covered the entire time!

Your dress is uber classy. That was very rude of her to say. Of course, there’s always potential for overspillage when you have a bigger chest, but your gown will be perfectly tailored and altered to your body. If anything, it’s probably the one time in your life you will wear something that fits your so perfectly. I would not worry about her comment. But don’t forget to do the bend-over test during alterations, just to be safe. 😉

Don’t listen to her. Your dress is beautiful and you will look gorgeous in it. Were there folks with you when you originally tried it on? I’m sure they would have said something then if it was inappropriate.

Some advice…I would refrain from showing too many ppl details about your wedding. You’ll set yourself up for rude comments like hers (and be giving away surprises.)

WAIT! Your dress is GORGEOUS! Some people have no filter, I swear! lol I too have DDs, and Im a size 14 (was an 18) and I love love love my sweetheart neckline! Im not one to really show them off, but I love the way they look in this neckline! You could always create a modesty panel or talk to alterations if you still are concerned when your actual dress comes in and you see it on! 

I totally have faith that my corset will keep me secure!! xo

@julietblueeyes: that fact that she said it out loud is completley inappropriate, but the thought is justafiable.

I have dd’s as well and my dress had the same top as yours…it was one of my biggest concerns when I got married. I know other people thought it, but they were just classy enough not to say anything.

Everything turned out fine and they didnt “fall out” but they were deff. there. I ended up putting lace between the sweet heart deep just to ease my own concerns.

There are some pics of me at my wedding that i am “sad” about as they are deff “out there” but all in all it looked gorgeous.

I think she was very very wrong to say it out loud and make you hesitate on your choice though.

That dress is totally beautiful, and there’s nothing inappropriate about it. His aunt should never have said that to you, period.

My mom actually gave me great advice after we bought my dress together–she told me to keep all the details about it secret from pretty much everyone. I kinda thought she was crazy, but now I realize that she was, among other things, protecting me from something like this. If I were you, I wouldn’t show it to anyone else. You bought it, you’re going to wear it, let people wait till your wedding day when they see you in it and looking fabulous.

I think your dress is beautiful–that sounds like something one of my aunts would say.

Your dress is GORGEOUS!  I love it!  I’d just make sure it is altered properly and you’ll be fine.  You’re going to be gorgeous on your wedding day.  Don’t let anyone get you down!
