I’m having a bit of a dilema. I have a 34D and I’m making an empire line strapless dress. I initally draped it with no seam going through the bust, just 2 darts. When I proceeded to try the sample on, the garment flattened my boobs. I added to the side seam, and no results. The Strapless section looks shaped, but when I put it on it flattens my chest again. I loosen the darts and the top neckline gapes. Is it necessary with a bust size like mine, to put in a seam through the bust?
How can I achieve a close, but a non-flattening, non-gaping, strapless dress?
