I can’t see the close up picture, sorry! But I do think you could add some coverage if you feel self-conscious. You might consider an illusion neckline made out of tulle. Any good seamstress should be able to add that without a problem. Would you like to cover your arms too or just your cleavage? 

Beautiful dress, btw! 🙂

Oops, hit “submit” too soon. This is what I had in mind – the neckline, obviously, not the dress.  What do you think? 

ETA: The idea that you had look gorgeous but I think it might be better suited to a plainer dress. Yours has so much gorgeous beading that it would be a shame to put on something that would compete with it.

@iGMarie:  It would be good to see what your grandmother’s knitted shoulder cover looks like, but nevertheless, I was wondering if you’d considered maybe adding something like this:

You would be fairly covered up in the cleavage area, but still showing a bit of skin/shoulder. Good luck with whatever you end up doing! 🙂

@iGMarie:  I think it should be fine for a couple of outdoor pictures 🙂 And I would have posted more pictures but didn’t know what this style of neckline is called?? I only found these by chance after guessing with “illusion halter neckline” even though I know that’s so not what it is, haha. Maybe other Bees might have more of a clue…
