Too much boob?

It’s hard to tell from just the one photo/angle, but I think it looks fine now. You are a busty girl, and short of wearing a tent, there is always going to be a lot of boob. I think you look great! But as others have said, it depends on if you’ll be comfortable or not all day.

First of all, you have a lovely figure and your bustline looks fabulous, it’s just the dress is a tad small. 

I think you should see an emergency seamstress. You still have time but I think it should be made a priority right now. You can do it OP! I accidentally lost a lot of weight and had to get mine re-done and I only picked it up the day before my wedding. It was stressful but it’s better than having a malfunction on the day.

Hey Bee – it looks MUCH better now – you have a lovely figure and you are properly supported. I think the key is not to lace it so tight that it becomes a bustier like in the first grouping of photos. The way it was laced the second time around is like night and day.

This does look too loose. If laced up properly, my guess it will look a lot more like that first photo. I’m also thinking that the angle on this photo is a little deceiving. Even if this is not the case, it remains too small up top.

It looks slightly better than the first photo, but I fear what will happen when (a) you move and (b) the fabric stretches (when, not if). I don’t think it will hold up over the course of the wedding, especially if it is not laced up correctly in the second photo. Not to mention, it may just look better because of the lighting and the way you are posing.

I was a double D at the time of my wedding, my boobs were locked in my dress (strapless that curved up from the armpits with an internal corset and tons of structure/boning), and even I almost had a wardrobe malfunction on the dance floor.

The dress looks MUCH better with the bra! If you are comfortable with it, go for it!

That said, I personally would not feel comfortable with that much showing, and would add the 2″ strip of satin or whatever along the top that was suggested by a PP. But I wouldn’t wear a LOT of dresses that are shown here because I just don’t feel that a wedding dress should “display the goods” to my family and friends. Again, that is me personally!

tineetoes :  op you paid almost  $2,000 for this dress for your once in a lifetime wedding day.  Shouldn’t it fit *perfectly* rather than just fit “ok”, or only “better”???

It looks much much better now, IMO.

I think tacking on additional fabric or whatever would just add even more attention to the area. You have big boobs, nothing wrong with that lol.

i had a breast reduction prior to my wedding, but i would not be comfortable in that. i remember the disaster of prom dress shopping.  i was a size 2 in the waist, but needed a size 12 to get proper coverage of my boobs and always wore straps for support.

i don’t see any support for the top part of your boobs. i would not be able to dance, or move.

even though i was a c cup on my wedding day, i still dress shopped like a was a unproportionately large chested girl.  it sticks with you.

tineetoes :  I think it looks much better with the bra OP. Can you try pulling the dress up a little higher as well? Leaving the top a little looser so it doesnt push your boobs up so much may be your best bet here.

I had a boob issue with my dress too and it was so frustrating. I spent my whole wedding putting my boobs where they should be. I’m still mad my seamstress let me leave like that but it is what it is!

I think that’s MUCH better in terms of how much boob but, I think it’s still obvious that the dress is too small up top. I’d talk to the dress shop and seamstress about restructuring the bodice portion of the dress or one of the other alternatives the bees have mentioned like adding some fabric. Do you feel secure in the dress? Did you try dancing/moving around a lot to see how it holds up?

tineetoes :  The new pic looks better, Bee, but I hope you will still see a seamstress to see what you can do to take it another step or two. Try putting your arms up as if you are dancing with your husband, or jumping around the dance floor and see what happens. Whatever is happening will be even greater once the dress gives through the course of the day/evening. Nobody is trying to criticize you or your dress, we all just want you to have a happy and worry-free wedding day.

The new photo looks promising, but it seems to be taken from a lower angle than the previous photos, so I’m concerned about the view from anyone taller than you or when you’re sitting down.

Better, but still doesn’t look like a proper fit. I feel like the dress should come up more under your armpits and be cinched tighter! I honestly feel like the cups are too small, especially Bc it fits so nice everywhere else.
