Sweet Lolitas & The Girls Who Love Them

It seems a lot of Lolita dresses have some sort of tie waist. I am a small person, and small-busted (29 inches) and most of the dresses have busts of 32, 35, or more. I am wondering if anyone other small people have purchased a Lolita dress with a larger bust before, and if they thought it looked nice anyway. Did the tie waist help? I would be pulling the dress in 3 to 6 inches, which might cause the dress to bunch up in the back. I don't really want to spend a lot of money on these dresses and then have to have them tailored. I like Baby, Victorian Maiden, and Mary M. Does anyone have any tips or advice for me, or find themselves in this same predicament?

Thank you! ^.^

Just a suggestion off the top of my head, but I think that purchasing dresses with that adjustable corset-tie near the bust area might work. (You know, the ribbon pattern that crosses over eachother in an 'X' formation. Excuse me, I'm drawing a blank for its name right now. XD Anyway, they're very prevalent in loli dresses...) You can tighten the strings to adjust the bust area to your size, and it won't look the least bit strange. :3

Sorry for being so unclarified. Hopefully you understood what I was trying to say. ^^;
