    I really really really wanted mine covered; however, it just didn’t happen that way. Everyone thinks I look great in the pictures that they have seen, but some of them are my oh my. No matter what you do, you gown will loosen and slip lower than what you may or may not normally be comfortable with. My gown was so tight, we almost couldn’t get it zipped up when I first put it on. And I am a 32/34 Dirty Delete. I am also pretty conservative with what I wear from day to day, so I think the only one it looks bad to is me. I had the same fears you are having.

    I think it depends on personal style. I don’t reveal much cleavage anyway, so I would feel totally inappropriate doing so on my wedding day. I think it’s trickier for weddings, too, because even if you totally rock the look when you go out socially, it may not be most appropriate in front of, say, your new husband’s grandparents.

    Edited after reading noritake’s response — Dress slipping happens, and I personally wouldn’t judge that. (And, noritake, I think you looked fabulous in your dress!) I am more referring to styles specifically low cut to emphasize cleavage.

    I think you should put the option for None on there. Not that I’ll judge other people for showing it but that I’m an extremely modest person. I’m wearing a halter with a modesty panel.

    I personally feel that the wedding day is one of those days where you should be showing as little clevage as possible. Just my opinion.

    I’m heavy chested and I purposely picked a dress that will give me 100% coverage.

    Well I dont think (at least in my family) that you have to be completly covered up.. but i want a strapless dress as a Dirty Delete no cleaveage would be next to impossible but I think if you think you might “pop out” at the wedding you are showing too much cleaveage..

    I think it depends on the style of the wedding (traditional vs. hollywood glam). But in general, I’m for covering most of it up, since there are older and younger family members in the audience. You don’t want to be flashing grampa!

    my dress will show some clevage. It will still be tasteful but with the V neck on my dress and my 36 D girls there was no way to really avoid it!

    Well, it depends what kind of wedding your having (church, vegas, beach- these are all totally different scenarios)… but also, I do think that a wedding calls for modesty. Some of us can help that we have big girls and sometimes its just not practical to cover them and still get the dress we want. I, personally, am going braless for the wedding because any sort of bra will give me unwanted cleavage.

    I cringe at the photos that were taken of me from above chest level because they show my way-too-ample cleavage.  I chose my dress primarily based on the fact that it hid my chest from the front view.  I thought I was pretty well covered, but wow did the pictures of me sitting down make me want to scream.  I dictated a “no cleavage” rule to my bridesmaids, and it in fact was THE ONLY rule I established for them about the way they should look. 

    This is just my personal issue, though.  I think people who were born with way too much really enjoy not seeing them while those who are average or smaller want to look voluptuous on their wedding day.  Whatever makes you feel comfortable is what you should do!

    I think the type of cleavage is key. By this I mean big pushed up round boobies are not ok, but a little subltle clevage is alright. Weddings are a day to be beautiful, not sexy.

    There’s nothing wrong with showing cleavage on your wedding day. You should wanna be sexy for your husband.

    I think its all about moderation, your own personal style and their size, and that goes for any clothes in general not just your wedding dress.

    I’m a little gal with big boobs and I don’t have much hope in hell looking modest unless the neckline was a “boat” style

    This is how my boobs will look.

    You don’t have an option that says: no, cleavage is not OK in a wedding… just sayin’! I personally would not choose a dress with cleavage to wear in front of my father and in-laws. I would not judge on what other ladies choose to wear though; but if cleavage can be avoided (I realise sometimes it’s almost impossible), I think it’s best.
