So I took my dress to a seamstress, and had the straps taken off, but now I feel like im falling out of the dress, and she completely dismissed my concerns to how it looked, it also looks like I have a wedgie when its bustled.. I dont want massive cleavage for my wedding, I mean as much as I can avoid for having large breasts..
is it as bad as I think? should I take it back and make her fix it, or is this all pre-wedding freakout??

Do you have cups sewn in? That can give your bust some structure

theatrejulia: the dress has cups, but I’m also wearing a bustier with it because my boobs look weird without it, but i was told it can’t be sewn in because it would make the dress too heavy up top.
i just feel like I’m showing my boobs to the world :/

breadloveaffair: I agree that something is not quite right in the cleavage area. Everything seems a little high. What does your bust look like in the bustier alone – is there a chance that it is pushing your boobs up by itself?
It looks like the dress isn’t zipping up all the way at the back. Are there more alterations to come?

First off, that dress is adorable! But yes, I think it could use some work to better suit your body and style. I don’t think the bustle is bad, but I’d try alternatives for the cleavage issue.

If you have a bustier already then you probably have enough support. Maybe removing the cups will let there be enough room and not push them up so much

breadloveaffair: It’s not so much the amount of cleavage showing…it’s more that it all looks unnaturally high. The wedgie thing would have never crossed my mind except for you mentioning it.

The dress looks a little too small in the chest area. I looks like you are spilling over the top a little. I think the bodice may need to be let out a bit so your breasts can sit lower in the dress. If You feel uncomfortable then there is no harm in asking for an adjustment.
Something like a multistrand necklace of pearls might also help. It will camoflague your cleavage and compliment your dress.
You are definitley blessed in the cleavage dept. ( lucky you!)

Oh how cute your dress is! Oh my god! Yum! But yeah your boobies are set a bit too high, and looks like you can’t breathe. Maybe let out the side seams just a little to ease the chest, but not too much, because you don’t want to be yanking the dress up all night. as for the bustle I don’t see anything wrong with it.

I’m sorry to say that I agree with you. The structure of the back is not flattering, and if you told her you didn’t want to show too much cleavage, she obviously didn’t succeed in resolving your concern. Keep in mind many people would love this look, but I totally get that it isn’t for you. I would have a conversation with her and if you don’t feel confident, find another seamstress. The good news is that these fixes shouldn’t be too hard. Good luck and congratulations!!

The vast majority of support in a strapless dress should come from the waist, not the neckline. So, you should theoretically be able to let out the side seams without a problem as long as the waist is doing what it should. But since it wasn’t a strapless dress to begin with it might not have that much structure. Also, the side seams aren’t where you need the extra room. The cup is just too small.
What did it look like with the straps? Would you consider getting them put back on?
I also agree with you on the bustle. I think your best bet is to take this to a new seamstress and explain what you don’t like.

That dress is really lovely. I agree that it’s a weird fit though. Would you consider maybe changing the back into a corset? It’s really obvious that you’ve got a figure but the top is not doing you any justice. The bustle looks a little sloppy as well but with this pic I’m wondering if it’s appearing that way because the skirt isn’t dropping properly.

I think the bust is a too tight for what it has to cover. I agree that from the back it doesn’t look zipped up all the way.

This dress is too small in a cleavege. It chokes you up. You can see it on your back too – it’s simply too tight. You couldn’t even zip it till the end. Was the dress properly fitting before?
It’s a gorgeous dress, and you’re gorgeous and so is your body – it’s just too tight in the chest area as of now for you. If it was a little bit looser in that area you would have looked absolutely stunning and perfect.

I looovee your dress. It looks too small on the top for sure.
