    I’m making my strapless dress a sweetheart. I posted on this several weeks back as a poll, asking whether everyone liked it better straight across or sweetheart (I photoshopped the changes for the poll)

    I think that with your dress it would be easy to alter it into a sweetheart neckline since there is not a lot of detailing in the chest area.  I actually like the dress as is and wouldn’t change anything.  But I think that if you wanted to add a halter strap you should keep the neckline straight.

    I think your dress is beautiful the way it is! but if you aren’t completely happy with it, change it! My girlfriend changed her neckline to a sweetheart, and it looked awesome. I think its actually pretty easy to do.

    I think that would work just fine with both a sweetheart neckline and straps. It looks lovely on you.

    i love how it looks unaltered =)  

    i think everyone has thoughts of changing their dress somehow or another, but what is most important is how you feel about the dress!! =D  i altered my zipper back to a corset and added colored ribbon, for example.

    what color is that sash?  it looks really nice!!

    p.s.

    i never thought i would wear strapless either but i loved mine!!! i actually always thought i would wear a halter, but when i tried one with that silhouette, it completely overwhelmed my top half…so see what works best for you.
