@loohoo12:  ah! i have the same problem.

i was at my alterations appointment 2 weeks ago and i was trying to show her how much room i had up top and how i didn’t want to slip a nip. she had hte same reaction as your guy! she said “but you’re not going to move like that”. and i said, “oh yes i am!”

i added cups and convinced her to take it in a half inch. i’ll go back sunday and hopefully everything will be good. (i am very worried about back fat, however!)

she had also mentioned that i can have some sort of band added on the inside of my dress that would prevent the top from going anytwhere.

so i’d say, hold your ground. ask for it to be taken in a bit or inquire about the band being added on the inside. good luck!

@loohoo12:  If you have no option for any more alterations, I would try putting some super-heavy duty double-sided tape along the top of your bra and press your dress against it.

Also, you could consider getting a strapless bra with a little more padding to give the dress a tighter fit. Some silicone stick-on bras might also have a little more grip, as opposed to a slippery satin style.
