Question for girls who have had brand dresses altered.

I adore AP's Little Birds Symphonia print, but there's no way it would ever fit my bust in its original form, so I was thinking of buying either the jsk or op at some point and having it altered. For those of you who have had dresses altered,

-Was the alteration very noticeable?
-Did it make the dress look/fit odd at all?
-About how much does an alteration like that cost?
-Where did you have it done? A local seamstress/dry cleaner's, or by someone from the lolita community?

-And one last question, I promise... Does anyone know which dress would fit a larger bust size? AP's site says "about 90cm~" for the bust measurement on both the jsk and op. The op looks like it has more shirring, but I could be wrong. I only ask because it would probably be less work for the seamstress in the end if they didn't have to expand the bodice as much..
