I tried on my dress this past weekend because I found a new pair of shoes that I wanted to make sure were the correct height. When I put it on, it was SO big in the boob area and gaping at the sides. I do not have a big chest--I barely fill an A cup. But when I had picked out the dress and put it on so my FMIL and her friend could see where they needed to alter it, this was not a problem. The dress almost fit like a glove except for the length, so all they had to do was hem it. I have been trying to watch what I eat lately, but I haven't lost more than 5 lbs but it has seem to come from my non-existent chest (curse you stupid body) and now it is gapping at the top and I'm dangerously close to flashing people. Thankfully it's not going fall down cause it still fits my waist fairly well (a little looser than it was, but that's a good thing because it was borderline too tight before). What are some last minute things I can do about this? My sister has told me to get dress tape--will it work even though my dress is a little heavy? It has a lot of beading and detail and I'm worried the tape won't be strong enough to hold it because of how heavy it is, although I haven't used it before so can anyone offer insight on this? I am planning on buying a strapless padded pushup bra, but am worried that my dress will just end up showing the bra because of the gapping on the sides.
What would you do? I'm stressing out a little about this!
