For those who know already, ive ordered a dress from Church street bridal (churchstreetbridal.blogspot.com) and this is the dress (anne barge 565 cost USD418)
The boob area is a bit loose…should i alter it or buy a push up bra? anyone has good recommendations on bras?

If I were you I’d alter it- I would not want to risk it falling down on my wedding day!
I know I already said this on the other thread but it’s beautiful!

yeah..it it is too expensive to alter, I think pushup will also be the good choice.

I’d alter, but it will probably cost as much as the dress to make alterations. It is absolutely gorgeous on you! What an amazing find!

You look beautiful! Can u get cups sown in maybe, that’s what I’m doing for the push up.

Beautiful!!! I feel like the look is very ‘you’ – it just seems to work so well! With that said, my vote is to alter the top. I have noticed from asking lots of other brides that most girls shy away from wearing a bra or a bustier on the wedding day due to comfort/not really needing one. Another option is also to have it altered and have cups put in.

Aw thanks so much for your kind comments 🙂
i may go see alteration lady this weekend and see how much she quote..if around 100, may be worth it since a good bra is around 50-60 anyway!! It doesnt need major alteration..just the bust area..
Does anyone know any good bridal bras/corset anyway?

Also, make sure you can walk!
I was 100% sure that my dress was the perfect length for me and didn’t need to be hemmed (just from the look of it and standing there). My seamstress told me that it was too long the first time she looked at it and made me walk around her living room to prove her point.
Sure enough, I was stepping all over the dress!
(anyways, I could be wrong, it’s hard to tell from the photos 🙂 but I just thought I’d mention it)
Beautiful dress 🙂
ETA: my seamstress also made me “swing” my arms up and down a few times, if after this you dress is falling down a bit or is out of place, i would definitely look into getting it taken in.

SO BEAUTIFUL and amazing for only $418!! Definitely spend the extra to get it altered.

Beautiful dress. I’d get the alterations done. Even with a push-up bra you may have to keep pulling up on your dress which never looks good. Plus you got it on a steal! Spend the extra money to make it totally fit for you!

@viv81: I love, love, love it!!! So glad you got it and love it! I’d probably just get it altered, so you know it fits…but I hate bras, so yeah. lol!
