I don’t think a sheer bodice can ever qualify as classy.

I think it’s gorgeous! But yes, sheer & bustier style bodice = too sexy. Maybe have it lined (if you want)?

@sooexcited:  I like the shape a lot, but the sheerness of the bodice reminds me of lingerie.  I think it would be really pretty lined, but right now, it screams post-wedding boudoir, not wedding dress.

It’s beautiful, but it looks like lingerie.

@sooexcited:  It’s too sexy for my tastes for a wedding dress. But if you generally wear sheer clothing and show alot of cleavage alot, then it’s probably fine for you!

@sooexcited:  It’s very pretty but to be honest looks like her undergarments with a wedding skirt on – like she is half dressed.

It is beautiful, but IMHO it’s just way too risque as a wedding gown. You will be photographed to death in it and to me, it’s more a look that should be reserved for a night out at the club with your girlfriends or for in bed with your husband (just clarifying that I am not at all conversative on most things, but I feel pretty strongly about it being “class all the way” on your wedding day).

It looks pretty, but it kinda looks like they ran out of fabric.  More post-wedding sexyness IMO.

I love the dress but I think the bodice desperately needs to be lined. I hate sheer dresses unless we’re talking sleeves or just the back. Just my opinion!

i think its gorgeous if its done right, and i think this dress did it right. It def is a little more sexy than the average dress.. but if you get it lines with nude, what is the difference?

It really depends on the bride.  I feel like its too much for me but if I know the bride and her personality and it suits her, I woud probably not be shocked by it.

My personal opinion is that a sheer bodice is always too much.

It’s a gorgeous dress. I love the bow on the back. That being said, I’ve never been a fan of the sheer bodices that some designers are doing. Were it me, I’d ask to see if it could be lined either in a contrasting color (like champagne or even mauve) or lined to match the lace.
