Honey, you can do amazing things with alterations!  You just have to make sure that you order a dress big enough to fit your chest, and that you are prepared to pay for alterations that would take the dress in everywhere else.  Such a terrible problem to have.  :o)

I am watching for this dress used, and I have seen a variety of women wearing it that way. There was one who’d had some lace put in the V so that it wasn’t as deep, and you couldn’t tell at all.

We can hope! I have seen it twice for $600. One had the tiniest of tears in an underlayer of crinoline, which I have seen on other dresses sell for much more! The other one she’d had a lot of alterations on, including removing the train. I am seeing more in the $700 range, though, so I hope it continues to drop.

I’m a Dear Daughter and I tried it on…I would say it depends on how modest you want to be. This might be Too Much Information…but my girls are um, far apart? So you basically only saw the middle sides. Since I am having a church wedding, I would add a lace inset, just to make me more comfortable, but the dress was beautiful and very flattering. The store where I tried it on charged $719.

Good luck!

I actually tried on a dress extremely similar to this and I’m a Dear Daughter. I too LOVED the dress, but felt uncomfortable because I felt as if I bent down to hug anyone they would get more than they bargained for! it ended up being a lot of cleavage. the only option they gave me was to sew in a “modesty” patch thing – and that would just ruin the look.

I tried on that exact dress and I’m a 34D, and it was completely obscene.  The lady at the salon said they could stitch up the cleavage a bit.

I wish I had a pic, but it was one of those places that wouldn’t let you.

I may be able to help!  I am a size D  and I am wearing this dress in 15 days at my wedding.  I feel your pain about topheaviness.  But I feel like I am well-supported in this dress.  this picture is before atlerations and I’ve also lost about 10 lbs since this shot.  I hope this helps!!!Good luck (:

I wore this dress even though I’m a Dear Daughter, I felt really confident in it. I had a modesty panel put in and it helped a bit (but not that much lol!) The panel that was put in was not what I had in mind but it was too late to get it fixed so I dealt and I’m still happy with how I looked in it.
