It’s beautiful. But I think the slits are a problem too. I love a classy bride! Those slits are too high for my taste.

You could line the entire top with a light blush colored lining so it doesn’t look nude, but doesn’t change the shape. The slit is pretty high, but I think you could probably have some of the inner layers tacked together so it doesn’t go so high on the day of.

I think the slit on the runway model was designed that way for the show. I found the dress on this site, and it only features one slit and it’s to the side. The dress also looks less sheer ontop

If I were wearing this dress I would probably buy the backless bra like below:

@freshflowers:  I thought I had seen a dress very similar to your Paolo Sebastian. It’s Watters Jacinda. You can see more pics in this thread http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/said-yes-to-the-dress-watters-jacinda/page/3

I had seen the Paolo dress before I ever saw the Watters one so im not sure which came 1st but I have a feeling that the former ‘inspired’ Watters 🙂

Hopefully the above thread hhelps you style your dress.

Id choose a different dress. You love it, except the top that needs changing so its less see through and the bottom due to the slits. Once you do that it will be a different dress. I’d just have one with the sexy see through leg showing style for a different occasion and have one you feel comfortable in for the wedding.

Sorry, I dont mean to be negative…but it sounds like its pefect except for all the details that make it unique.
