Maybe talk to a seamstress before buying to find out how much it will cost/how difficult it would be to adjust the neckline?

Otherwise, I think it’s a very attractive shape.

I think it’s a beautiful dress!  I don’t think it’d be a problem with them making a little bit more a sweetheart.

This was one of my top contenders on my dress search!!!  I LOVED it, but I had a little too much junk in the trunk for it and I looked like ALL HIPS.  I ended up with the WG3011 because it had a little more bling and fit me a bit better.  I loved the dress though otherwise!!

I think it’s a great dress.  Look at the reviews it has at David’s as well, 4.9 out of 5 hearts and 52 out of 52 people recommend it. I don’t think it would have had such nice rating if it really did look cheap.

I don’t think it would be a problem to make the sweetheart neckline a little deeper.  When you go to try it on, don’t take the consultant’s word.  Ask to speak directly to the seamstress (they usually have one on site) and ask her opinion.

If the dress is a good price and you dont need many other alterations I would just look into getting the neck line lowered into a deeper sweetheart. I dont think it would cost that much

I’m a seamstress (Canada) and changing the neckline is actually a big deal. The inside of a strapless dress has boning and possbly a sewn in bra. All of which needs to be taken out and resewn. The good news is that they should be able to quote you an alterations price right there at the shop. If they can’t, expext to pay $100 or more ot change the neckline
