    @hm_bride:  beautiful dress!! I think it looks very modern with the lining exposed, but it seems that you aren’t comfortable with that look. I don’t think it will distract your guests but if you don’t like it change it before it is too late!

    I think the dress is great either way, but go with your gut instinct. I don’t think the boning is going to make your guests stare at your chest at all.

    I voted exposed bust seam, because it’s one of the reasons you say you love the dress, and I don’t think that it looks too exposed or racy. If you had giant knockers, maybe, but since you say you don’t have large breasts I think you’re safe. It is a lovely dress, and I agree that the exposed seams are part of what make it unique.

    I think it definitely draws attention to your chest.  If you are confident and small busted I say rock it!  I definitely couldn’t pull it off, but I’m pretty traditional.

    I think it’s really gorgeous…also, one of the bloggers on here, Mrs. Waterfall, I think wore a very similar dress that had exposed boning in her corset.  I think it was a Vera Wang as well.  You could look at her pictures and see how much the corset shows in certain lights and environments.

    I agree with Pepperwoodsy, love the exposed bust seam. Provided you dont have huge boobs that would overflow the top it has the perfect mix of edgy and romantic.

    Love the Hayley, such a romantic dress. And I do love the exposed seam, because I think it really balances out the romance and frothiness of the skirt…I think it stops the overall look from being too sweet, if you know what I mean.

    I prefer the softer look of no seam. 

    As someone whose own dress had lot of detail at the bust (I chose it in spite of this factor, not because of it, since it was the only dress I could try on that I actually liked), I really wish my dress had not placed emphasis in this area.

    I think it’s fine.  It doesn’t look like you have a large bust, which is where things start to get tricky with that type of style.  I voted to have the exposed seam. 🙂

    @hm_bride:  Beautiful dress! I voted no seam- I like the softer look.  The seam is quite subtle anyways, so I don’t think you can go wrong either way:)

    Please don’t change the dress! The bustier top is amazing!

    I love your dress. If you aren’t particularly large busted, I don’t think the seams draw attention whatsoever. I would leave them intact–your Hayley is a work of art! I also think the flyaway organza is a subtle touch, and just perfect in combination with the seams. A blusher for your tatas, if you will.
