I think it looks great in picture 2!! Maybe it’s just the photo, but you looks slimmer and taller! You can see the bodice of the dress better as well. You look beautiful!!

I prefer the look of #2. I think in some pictures I look way too “boobie” and should have gone for a larger cup size.

@ohemgeeitscor:  +1 I absolutely agree. Something about pic #2 makes you look taller too.

@megz06:  The second pic is zoomed in and her shoulders are higher…that’s why she looks taller.

OP: I think this is a great option!

@FutureMrsP1005:  If you have a good seamstress, anything is possible! My seamstress has blown me away with her talent. She actually took my sash and made it look like part of the dress so I don’t have to tie it around back and interupt the “flow” of my dress.  I think #2 looks good, and if it makes you feel more comfortable, do it!

Picture 2 looks great!  If you didn’t tell me, I would think that’s how the dress comes.

 OP, I did actually have my gown manufactured with an inch extra height on the neckline to cover cleavage better. And to be honest, it didn’t make that much of a difference. I can barely tell it is higher and I still have some cleavage. I think to cover like ur photo, it will take substantial altering or addition of a panel like u have done. my opinion is that the dress looks better as is. I was only willing to add one inch to mine so as not to change the overall look and feel of the dress design.
