I’m not conservsative at all as I am also a busty woman but I have to echo the other bees, it’s just too small in the bust area.I hope a seamstress can help you find a solution.

tineetoes :  Sorry, I agree with the other Bees. I can’t stop staring at your boobs. They are the center of attention in the dress. I would definintly consult with an alteration place to see if they can do an emergency fix on it.

Better to lose your train than to have a wardrobe malfunction during your wedding/reception.

I don’t think that taping your boobs down or trying the dress with a different bra is going to help. I’m not a seamstress but…  your boobs take up a certain volume.  The cups of your dress will only hold a certain volume.  The cups of the dress are not designed to handle the amount of volume required, here.

tineetoes :  I’m sorry that the people who sold you your gown didn’t know what they were doing. I agree with PPs: it is way too small in the bust area, and it’s not certain that diet, tape or a bra will do much difference. At this point, you might want to think of a Plan B and consider an off the rack dress. David’s Bridal has options that are $200 or less; you might be pleasantly surprised and find something you like!

tineetoes :  did you buy it with a credit card? If the shop does not have a viable solution, you can dispute the charge. That is what I would tell them if they refuse or cannot fix it.

tineetoes :  do not take fabric from your train.  It’s not necessary.  See my previous post.  When I was younger I used to sew and did fittings and alterations to fit things to people.  Get a separate fabric and add on.  But don’t try taping or a bra or whatever to fix this.  You need more material up top to fit your girls into.  The dress is at least three sizes too small in the bust.  You need more fabric up there.  That’s not an aesthetic thing, it’s a basic function issue.  This situation reminds of the Scottish terrior ladies in Coraline.

Maybe you could find some sort of dress topper?

The top doesnt fit you, you look fantastic but you are literally spilling out of your dress..if this was a club I would say it’s a hot outfit.. but all your guests will be motor boating you the second you bend down..and I dont see how you will avoid a nip slip

Like this is just not an appropriate wedding look, I dont know what the hell the store you ordered from was thinking but this does not fit and it’s 100% on them

With your wedding 3 weeks out, maybe see if you can quickly get a lace overlay or something added?

Your figure is beautiful but to be honest, yes too much boob. I would be worried you might pop out!

Sorry bee but I agree, the dress is gorgeous and fits beautifully everywhere else but the cup size seems too small

It’s way too much. Honestly when I saw the 1st picture before I actually read your post,  I thought it was going to be a joking post about wedding attire fails as I’ve seen on Google before.  Not trying to hurt your feelings but know there’s still time to get this fixed. It looks lovely on you everywhere else. Take it to a seamstress today and/or get a shrug to cover up. There’s some beautiful wedding shrugs out there. I’m sorry just being honest.

tineetoes :  Take a deep breathe; I’m sure we can help you find a way to make something work. 

Please don’t give up on this thread; we all genuinely do want to help you.  So many of us have had various kinds of dress diasters (ie, alterations gone wrong) that I think there’s a shared sense of commitment to helping other brides look fabulous on their day.  We’re not out to try and hurt your feelings; we just want to keep you from having a diaster strike during your wedding.

If you have a chance to try the dress on again, try pulling it up a bit higher and lacing it to fit higher up your body. See if you can get some photos and see if that makes any difference.  I’d also start a conversation with a seamstress too, about gimmiepretty’s advice on raising the bodice by adding a trim.
