I’m not augmented but large chested. I am a 36DD. I am a street size 10. My dress is a 16, in order to accomdated the bust. Those girls are so packed in that I probably could have used an 18. 

In discussing this with the seamstress at one place, she basically told me that I could add a corset back to any dress that I purchased and that anyone with a larger chest should always purchase a corset back so that it doesn’t have to be taken in to much at the waist and ruin details. (I didn’t listen to her)

The average dress has one inch of let out space.

And I would ask yourself the if losing 3 inches is feasble for you.  Have you ever been a 32D?

I would go for the corset back.  It is much more forgiving if the dieting does not work out.  Plus you don’t need a long line bra.

I have had a breast aug and just from experience trying things on I would actually suggest that you have a seamstress put a corset back in the dress you bought. It is actually quite simple for them to do and would be much cheaper than having all sorts of alterations to adjust for not fitting your bustline and fitting your waistline. Just a thought.

O and to answer your original question about weight loss, yes you have plenty of time but you will probably still have alteration costs

@natalila: While she is definitely pretty, I would say this is exactly the way NOT to go on your wedding day. My eyes went to her boobs before the 6-feet tall harp.

I have a larger chest than the rest of my body, my entire mom’s side of the family does. It did create a problem with wedding dresses. My first wedding 10 years ago I’d worn a corset top Maggie that was a size 8 sample even though I’m a size 2. Combination of alterations and corset had looked great. This time I wore two dresses, both sweetheart necklines, no corset, and not really allowing a bra. I had to buy both in size 6 due to chest. In my ceremony dress we added bra cups and added a tulle modesty panel. With my reception dress I only had 1 week to alter the dress, so couldn’t do anything about the boobs and it was a problem. They looked a bit squished and hung out more than I’d like them to.
