@Bebealways:  Stick your hands in and pull your boobs forward. Shift them around ’til you’re happy with how they look.

I think its something you can sort out after you have it on by moving and adjusting them to how you think best.

Yep, hoik them about and see what happens! If you find a configuration you like, stick em in place with lingerie tape. Otherwise, controversial sure, but I wear a strapless bra under my corset which definitely helps. Btw, LOVE your tattoo! X

i’ve owned corsets before.

did you get it made to measure? the overbusts are difficult ones because they are really small in the chest area and squeeze boobs in! that seems to be the problem you have there.

i always used to go for underbusts because of that problem, and i’m only a 34B!

i think if you’re going to keep the corset, a little bolero would be good ๐Ÿ™‚

@Bebealways:  if you were to ever get one again, i highly recommend getting a custom one. they fit SO much better and are really really comfortable.

good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

oooh, as a side note – what waist size is it? it looks like a 24″? it’s REALLY pretty and you look teeny tiny ๐Ÿ™‚

@SpecialSundae:  This! Just needs a little bit of adjusting, is all. You’re actually supposed to do that with regular bras, too.

Start by asking someone to help you put it on. Lean forwards and hold your boobs in your hands, and then lower them into the corset. It sounds odd, but this is why I prefer corsets which do up at the back, because then you can adjust as someone else does it up.

If you still have this problem, despite adjustments, then I suspect that you have the wrong cup size. Off the peg can be a real problem for corsets, because they are designed to shove you upwards and inwards, and you never know exactly where “inwards and upwards” will end up!

@Bebealways:  As a small chested girl I second @Stormchild:‘s suggestion of wearing a strapless bra underneath, especially one with a good amount of padding. It should hopefully give your breasts move shape and also create room for the “extra” to move into as well. It’s worth a shot anyway!

Hopefully these suggestions will help but if theyn don’t, you could do smalll satiny straps which woulddn’t cover your tats at all!

It looks like your breasts are being pushed apart instead of togehter, and that’s why you’re getting lines by your arms.  You DEFINITELY do not need to loose weight, and that’s an area that would probably be unaffected by weight loss anyway.

As others suggested, you need to reach in and pull your breasts up and together about halfway through tightening the corset.  That will give you cleavage instead of side boob.

Also, you’re never going to fit a bra on underneath a corset.  Don’t even try that.  You could hurt yourself if it’s a steel-boned corset.
