I purchased my dress from DB and I love it! The dress has boning in the bust area. It was big when I tried on the sample, but I knew the dress needed to be taken in quite a bit and assumed the dress would be made to fit when I took it for alterations.
I had the dress altered and am happy with it, but there is one problem. The bust of the dress is shaped such that it adds about 2 inches to my bustline. I think I look ridiculous in the dress and I don't feel like myself wearing it.
When I voiced my concerns to the woman in alterations, she kept insisting that it looks fine and that there is nothing wrong with looking larger than you are. She also kept insisting that there was no way to alter it since the dress had boning in it. She had added some cups to fill out the space, but there is still an extra inch of space and I don't WANT my boobs to look that much bigger than they really are. I was so upset and angry and cried at the fitting. I eventually couldn't be there anymore and left with my dress.
Now I am panicing. I have an appointment to meet with a seamstress this Saturday (NOT at DB), but am worried because my wedding is on the 30th.
Do any of you know- is it possible to alter the shape of a bust when there is boning?
