lattefairy :  the model has at least B cups. Thats why she has a cleavage line. 

i echo what Kaymar said – this dress is not for ladies with smaller chests. I have B cup size and would not dream of wearing a backless dress like this with no bra support apart from sewn in cups. 

You have a nice figure and would look better in something else that is more flattering to you. I can literally see the shadow between the dress and your chest. This does not look good, really. It looks like you’re wearing a C-cup top and it’s all padding and air.

Just my opinion but you mentioned your Fiance doesn’t like strapless dresses like this. Do you want him to not like your look on your wedding day? You still have three weeks to get something else. Don’t fixate on a dress that is just kinda meh to begin with.

mishybear :  I have a feeling the straps were more centralized like in the styled model picture with the plants, but she bought a way too big size and took it in so much that the straps migrated closer to the armpits. She needed to order a smaller size from the start for a better fit but said she lost weight during the process.

I almost had to laugh at this. How shitty.

He obviously loves you enough to marry you and I doubt he would ever think that you are anything less than beautiful even if you walked down the aisle in a black garbage bag.

Once you bring that bust in and move those straps ever so slightly, this dress will look perfect. I love the off the shoulder look that you posted, it’s very romantic and definitely suits you!

smalltownbigworld :  But everyone knows we womenfolk have no purpose but to look good for the men!!

Ignore mean comments OP, it just needs a bit of fitting and it will be perfect.

I hate  to agree with you OP , but even with the inner cups out  that bodice  looks too big and stiff to me.  The plunge is too low and the cups too elongated looking  to be flattering .  The blush version on the model shows what it should look like when properly fitted. I would not be too happy about the  waist seam either .

I’m sorry , what a pain . But  I do believe a good seamstress can fix without  too much drama.  And   you can  cover that waist seam with a belt . 

FWIW I don’t believe bluefire above meant anything negative at all, and was only addressing   a concern the OP voiced.

As it stands the dress looks LOVELY on you! If it is really bothering you though, than smaller cups and maybe a little boob tape will do the trick 🙂

I think the style of the neckline (with such a deep sweetheart) isn’t going to hold things in as tight as some other strapless gowns would regardless of the alterations, especially with the low back. It looks like it’s just “sitting” on the model too – not holding things up/supporting the boobs like a bra would. So in that respect, I’m not sure what other alterations they’d do besides maybe putting in a dart between your boobs (which would make it less of a deep sweetheart). I think it looks very boho and flowy on you! 

The waistline looks a little wonky without the belt in the first photo you posted, but.. I like how it looks with the belt you have on and you can’t even tell with the belt on. 

Oh! I also second the double sided tape to keep the bust exactly where you want it.

lattefairy :  so, i think first there’s something that needs to be cleared up here. your dress is not a strapless dress – and i don’t mean just because it has a spaghetti strap – i mean, you should not even consider ever thinking about wearing it strapless because it doesn’t have the structure to be worn as such. you’ll notice that EVERY backless gown has some sort of strap/sleeve/illusion tulle, etc. on it, because there’s just not enough structure possible in a backless/super low back gown to wear it as strapless. period. by trying, it’s going to sit away from your body instead of closely to your torso because there’s nothing there to pull it towards your torso.

now that that’s cleared up, let’s talk about how it’s sitting on you and expectations. yes, i think it can still be taken in a bit – it does look a little big still. HOWEVER, you’re not going to get a dress whose torso super closely fits your body like a glove for the same reason i just mentioned. a backless dress doesnt have enough structure to pull the torso that close. it just doesn’t. so it’s going to be body skimming, rather than tightly fitted.
