    I’m personally a big fan of sweetheart but I can’t really picture how it would look with your dress. Could you try to pin it into a sweetheart shape to get an idea of how it would look first?

    I am a huge fan of sweetheart necklines. Have you talked to a seamstress? Is it doable with your dress?

    I think it looks great on you as is. It is a beautiful dress and it looks great on you.

    I personally think it looks great just as it is.

    I am in your boat – – I have am having my neckling tailored to a sweetheart as well for the exact same reasons – – Being short it opens us up a bit….I don’t have the same dress but here are pix of my dress normal neckline and pinnes for the sweetheart neckline…Hope they help a little Wink

    I voted for a sweetheart, only because it seems like it would make you look longer. Right now the neckline looks a little high on you, but it might only be because it hasn’t been altered. Hope that helps!

    I think the neckline might be a bit too high for you, the sweetheart would look great. This makes you look a bit shorter.

     

    At least you can wear sexy 6 inch heels. I’m tall for a chick (5’7) lol.

    I do think the sweetheart would look better on you. My dress was straight across and I am having it altered to a true sweetheart (with a point) and it is MUCH more flattering. I’m 5’6 but I have a very short torso so the sweetheart neckline makes me look longer – I love it!
