So, I desperately need some help on my dress. I have been looking at all my pics trying to figure out what looks best and wanted to take a poll on a few things. Please respond with your votes and help me decide the following:
Does the bustline come up too high in the front?
Does the dress come up too far under my armpit?
Pertaining to #2 and #3, Sue (my dress maker) is afraid if we take the bustline down a bit my girls (aka boobies) will fall all over the place while dancing and bending over. I certainly don’t want this, but I think that area just looks a little TOO confined!!! You all know I like to have a little sex appeal (just a little!) going on in that area. I am sooo torn!!!!! HELP!!!!! Right now the bust itself is way too big for my boobies, but she is going to wait to take it in until right before the wedding since my weight (and therefore cup size) will likely fluctuate before then, so dont let that distract you in the pics.
Attached are some pics which aren’t neccessarily the best or most flattering but reflect my concerns. Any other comments/suggestions would be appreciated!!

My lord, that is one of the cutest dresses I have ever seen. It doesn’t need to come in at all– It looks perfect! Who is the designer??? I love it!

Beautiful dress! You are one of the only ones so far that I’ve seen that’s been able to pull off that “short in the front but not in the back type of thing”. 🙂
As far as your bust being too confined I think once the final fitting is done it will look great. You don’t want to be falling out, but at the same time you don’t want it up to your chin! I think it’s at a good level, just showing just a little bit of the bust–anyone who looks at you can tell you have those curves, an implied sex appeal if you will.
I have been “blessed” with a larger chest also, and of course, I do like to accentuate the area, but for my wedding I’d rather people be looking at me and not my cleavage 😉 I’ll save that for the groom.
Good luck, do post progress! You look just wonderful in this dress!!!!! 🙂

I think it just looks a little loose right now. Once she takes it in it will look better. I think the last picture looks the best. The dress looks like it fits you perfectly there, probably because your arms are down and it makes the dress look tighter.
Great dress! So someone made that for you?

Your dress is beautiful and unique! I would not change the bustline. I agree the last picture looks the best, because your arms are holding the bustline in. When you’ve got it altered to fit you I think all your concerns will be alleviated.
