I agree with your opinion that this is a shallow bodice. I bought both pattern size ranges and there was very little difference in the 12 and 14, although two pattern purchases. There was more room at the front princess line only and none reflecting the depth of bodice to give better coverage. I ended up sewing 3/8 inch seam allowances on the upper and lower seams (tricky with fraying chiffon, etc). The dresses looked lovely but felt quite bare for coverage, fortunately body tape made the bridesmaids feel a little more secure.

Sorry it didn't fit. The pattern looks really nice, but sometimes things just don't work out. Hope you can find another one that works better.
