I love Monique Lhuillier’s Geisha dress except for one thing – the neckline. I’m not a big fan of the "straight across the boobs" strapless. I prefer a scoop neckline which is a compromise between a straight across and sweetheart neckline.
My question is, would it be a bad idea for me to have my tailor change the Geisha dress to a scoop neckline, especially if I want to sell it again after? The reason why I want to change the neckline is because of this dress…
But it’s WAY too expensive (it’s from the Fall 2008 collection) and I’ve already found a preowned Geisha at a much lower price. What do you ladies think?

Go for it! You should have a gown that you feel is just perfect in every sense–both budget and style.

This is my honest opinion, but I think if you’re buying a used dress, which has probably already been altered, altering it to fit you and changing the neckline, you’re going to have a hard time reselling it again. Now, I think it would be fine to change the neckline and then not resell it, but that’s a lot of work done to a dress and it will start to show. I am in the market for a used dress, but I wouldn’t consider buying a twice owned dress. Just my opinion though.
I like the JH dress, so if that’s what you want, tailor the other one to look like it, but don’t count on being able to resell it.
