I have no advice, but the 13 year old in me thought this might have been a topic for the intimacy boards.

@somethingaquamarine:  LOL! Now you have my inner 13-year-old giggling rather inelegantly. 


@Soon2BmrsJ:  I know other Bees have removed boning from their dresses quite successfully, but you might want to check with your seamstress first since your dress is all lace.


If the boning is all (or substantially all) that is holding your dress up, removing it may have some dire consequences. But, she can just remove the boning only from the bust area, and then smooth out the cups for you. Or, instead of removing it, you might have your seamstress reshape it, or put in rounder boning for your bust.


Here’re some threads on this issue:

I’m having the same issue with my lace dress! I’m going to ask my seamstress about it this weekend!

@Soon2BmrsJ:  my dress is the same way. I am pretty “small” up top per say, so they added EXTRA padding/cups to help me fill it out more so it looked okay!
