With a forty-six G cup, voluptuous bride Niema visits alterations.


Niema is definitely a woman who knows what she wants. Niema’s story was definitely a great lesson in making sure your dress is 100% to your liking. Niema bought a $4000 dress, but then made extensive alterations to the dress. The seamstress constructed sleeves, so that she could give Niema’s bust the support the bride needed. Niema also wanted to make sure the shape of the dress flattered her. She instructed the seamstress to change the shape of the bottom of the dress into a more form fitting silhouette. With all the alterations this dress carried the price tag of $12,000. The lesson here is: You can definitely do significant alterations to your bridal gown, but it’s going to cost you!

Speaking of alterations, does anyone have extensive alterations done to their gown like Niema?
