I've got my dress at home, ((the dress shop shut down)). Today I tried my dress on again, but it's very low cut. I only have a small chest, so I think it looks majorly stupid. It still needs taking in as its a size 14, I'm only a 10. but I'm worried even when taken in it's still too low cut. What can I do to make it look perfect and not stupid on me? Does the seamstress put something in to help your chest look bigger?

Hi if you look around you can get some lace jackets which you can put on over the dress to give if a different look it will also make you feel more comfortable wearing your dress. your seamstress may be able to help out or out some sort of insert in as well so it's not so low cut. Hope this helps xx

I'm sure the seamstress will be able to put an insert in to make the neckline higher or depending upon the style, if it has straps she may be able to raise it from the shoulders. Don't worry. Speak to the seamstress and she should be able to sort it.

You can ask them to stitch some cups in for you , I’m getting that done on my dress as my dress has a very low back so I can’t where bra ..

I had the same, a 14 to a 10 with a backless dress. The seamstress has sewn in cups and I bought an invisibra which is beautiful n

You can get lace tops that look the same shape as a t shirt and cups sewn in

When i tried dresses on they used modesty panels which were pretty good at covering the chest area

My seamstress sewed a bra into mines as it had an illusion back

Why did you buy it in the first place if it wasn't right and wrong size? Or have u lost loads of weight and it no longer fits properly. I'm sure a seamstress can sort it for you though.

Hi I'm a bridal seamstress. Make sure you have a try on with your chosen seamstress before you go ahead with them so you can see what they will do and how they can alter the dress. My brides have a no obligation fitting first and then their fittings start 6-8 weeks before their wedding day. A good seamstress will be able to suggest a few alternatives for you. Feel free to message me if you need any more advice x
