Also titled in my mind… *Members of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee Unit!*
Long story short ladies…I bought a dress, three months ago. I love(d) it, I think. Lol I remember really liking it but I haven’t seen it in so long and there are sooooooooo many gorgeous dresses posted everyday on this site I’m feeling a slight dress regret.
Please excuse how terrible this picture is….my mom is phenomenal at taking the worst pictures of me ever. So the dress is a size 12…I’m a size 4/6 but the bridal shop owner assured me she’d be able to take it in without any damage to the structure of the dress (it’s a corset with very minimal beading). It seems the dress slipped down a little here also…
So I love how simple the dress is, I love the beading on it, how it kind of just cascades and fades away down the side. I wanted a corset and a sweet heart, check and check. I just feel like I am going to end up looking super flat chested and broad shouldered! My hairstyle will be a side ponytail so hopefully it breaks up my shoulders a bit.
I’m a 34A masquerading as a 34B (*cough, denial, cough) :). I was going to have her add in cups and get a Nu-Bra, I hate strapless bras, probably because I hate bra shopping lol so this seems like the best option for me, plus I’ve heard of great results. I feel ridiculous but I almost want to go visit my dress/get a fitting to reassure myself these things would help.
Sorry about my rambling, so I guess what do you think? Any smaller chested brides have any sweetheart neckline dress photos of themselves to reassure me that I wont look like a 14yr old boy?
*Disclaimer. I don’t mind being small chested, I just want to fill it out a bit more on the big day!*

I think it looks fine.
If you are really self-concious about it you could always get undergarments that give a boost. Again, I think you look great, but it’s about how you feel onyour big day.
That being said, little boobies always have the ability to wear so many more things.

I’m a 34A/32B thank goodness for corsets! I had cups sewn in mine and I hope it looks ok!

I’m going with the cups-sewn-in option as well. I’m a B, but that’s still ‘b’itty as far as I’m concerned. LOL. I hear you on the worry about smaller chest/larger shoulders, but I think it’ll be totally fine. Seamstresses work wonders every day, and your hairstylist will as well. 🙂 You’ll be gorgeous, and no one but your hubs will be checking out your ‘girls.’

The dress looks great on you. Don’t worry about the boobs. Ok I really hope no one takes this the wrong way but why are some small breasted women so obsessed with the size of their boobs. I have these conversations with my Maid/Matron of Honor all the time she is small and obsessed with being bigger but really I could give a crap less how small her boobs are I do not in any way compare my boobs to other women’s so really no one notices as much as you think they do (maybe only shallow men). By The Way I am a 34Dirty Delete and wish to be much smaller I jokingly tell my friends that if I could push some thier way I really would. Huge boobs are a curse. It’s not just my Maid/Matron of Honor either that I get this impression from my boss, and quite a few of my other friends are all obsessed with the same thing. They wear the chicken cutlets, and VS pushup bras and the like but honestly no one is judging them and I think everyone should feel good about themselves no matter the size of their knockers. I wish I had smaller one’s so I don’t have men staring at my chest instead of my face, and so I wouldn’t have to deal with all this back pain, and to wear cute tops without spilling out. Everyone should be happy with what they have and realize no is judging you as much as you think they are.

@JustMarried51912: The grass is always greener…. =D
That being said, I have more of a curvy figure (5’4 almost and 130ish. 34D) and I like it in some ways, but I’d MUCHMUCH rather have a cute, skinny body. I like clothes and there are so many I can’t wear. I also got put down a lot in highschool for it.
ETA- I also get really negative attention for it at times. I also think there’s a stereotype, that I’m more ‘sexy’ than I actually am. I’m VERY personally conservative with men! Nooooooo. OP, I’d love to have your body type. =)

@JustMarried51912: Don’t get me wrong; I like my size and don’t want them bigger at all….it can just be a challenge sometimes to find tops and styles that work for smaller cup sizes/don’t require crazy bras underneath to make things look good.

I’m a 34B (which is small compared to the rest of me) and heres my sweetheart… there was boning and a serious strapless bra underneath… Weird picture but good shot of boobs

PS They had to take the boobs in, and that helped a lot.

@mtrl01: We both have a common enemy on opposite ends of the spectrum. It’s tough for me to wear cute tank tops of any cut because I have to wear a huge bra with them and fear of spilling out and I cannot stand it when bra straps are hanging out all over the place. In reality boobs just suck for most of us unless you a B-C size range lol.

I definitely have the small bust/ broad shoulders thing going on so I sympathise with you! I think your dress is beautiful! It will look gorgeous once it’s all altered to fit.
I tried on several dresses with different necklines trying to find the ideal complement to my small boobs!! I thought a sweetheart would look best. When i found my dress i realised it had the neckline that i never knew i should want but was PERFECT. It is a sweetheart with an organza overlay that folds above the sweetheart (they call it a crumbcatcher?). Perhaps you could have your seamstress add something similar? Not that you need to!!!
I plan on having padded cups sewn into my dress.

I so know how you feel. I am also a 34A masquerading as a 34B hahaha
Just so you know, you look really pretty in that dress and it’s not obvious that you are small-chested! At least for me, I still find it in the acceptable range.
Here’s a shot where you can see how terribly flat I am:
I have bought a 32B (the band size runs big) bustier sort of thing and will be using gel cups.

First, I would not worry about looking broad shouldered, because your shoulders are very narrow and lovely. My friend is about the same size as you, and when in a correctly fitted corset (I assume a corset dress is similar) It gives her a crazy amount of clevage! the other advantage is that boobs, like other fat, get squished up by a corset and can spill over and look weird if they’re abundant. I think you will look great 🙂

Also a 34A and am having 2 sets of fake boobs sewn into my sweetheart neckline…..and I don’t care how fake it looks! It’s my wedding day and I want out the ITBC club for one day!

Lol ladies thanks so much for your replies. The responses made me lol, and I feel a lot better! Like you all said I think it will help once I get the cups sewn in and gelly boobs and such, either way I’m going to rock that dress!
Btw you all look stunning in your dresses, they’re so pretty!
@JustMarried51912: Ya normally I don’t give a damn, I would just like a little more oomph that day lol!
Thanks again all, you’re wonderful!
