I had my first fitting today and I thought it went well, my dress fits so the only alterations will be the hem and bustle. I sent my mom pictures of me in the dress and she told me that she thinks I need to lower the neckline, because the neckline was much lower on the sample I tried on. The sample showed cleavage, my gown doesn’t I thought I liked that but now I’m having second thoughts The main problem is that changing the neckline would be a major alteration and I have less than a month, my next fitting was going to be the final fitting! What do you bees think?
Here is my dress.
And here is me in the sample

I have to say that I like the neckline on the sample dress better.. but what do you like best ? You could talk to your alterations lady and see what she says. You look gorgeous either way tho ! 🙂

Thats so strange that the sample neckline is so different from what you got.
Honestly for me the sample dress is a little too low. If you were to alter it I would go somewhere in between. I don’t think this would be a huge alteration though,

I’d do a neckline somewhere in between those two. Gorgeous dress!

I voted sample neckline. BUT…if it’s too late to have the alterations done, don’t stress. You look beautiful, either way.

I also think somewhere in between the two would be ideal. But, the dress looks good as is, so don’t stress if there isn’t time to change it.

I agree with your mom. Your dress is beautiful, but something about the lower neckline really makes the proportions balance properly and gives it a true wow factor. I thing it’s more flattering that way (which is tough to do since it’s already so gorgeous on you!).

Another vote from somewhere between the two, if it’s possible. You look lovely!

Funny they do look different! Were you wearing any thing different underneath from sample to your dress or change in weight?

I’d take it somewhere in between. You have plenty of time. My neckline was done between my second and finalfitting, about 12 or 13 days apart. You just neeagain make another appointment to come in again.

I’d say sample or maybe slightly higher. Where it sits right now looks unnatural for some reason. Not sure what it is.

Another vote for in between for all the reasons already posted 🙂

I agree with your mom, alter it to look more like the sample. Gorgeous dress though!

I voted other. I wouldn’t go as low as the sample dress’s neckline because strapless dresses tend to migrate south anyway and you don’t want to spend all day tugging it up, but definitely lower the neckline a bit.
By The Way, you have an lovely figure and your waist is SOOO tiny!
