    More importantly, what kind of skintone do you have?  Are you pale?  If so go with white.  If you have olive skin (like me) go with Ivory.  If you have darker skin, I’d say go with white as well.

    Whether you keep it as a straight across or sweetheart really depends on which you prefer, your body type & how each style looks on your body — for small chested folk the straight across really does nothing to flatter & the sweetheart usually gives the illusion of more fullness.

    Some of my well endowed & buxom friends have admitted that sweethearts (especially the deep ones) make them feel really self conscious about possible spillage–though it does really depend on the dress.

    As for this dress (and this is just my opinion), I think the detailing at the bust would or could look a little strange  (I don’t think it would translate well from straight to sweetheart)–but this is a bias I have that correlates to lace detailing on edge of sweetheart tops too.

    In the end it comes down to what YOU want & what makes YOU happy 🙂

    @posh_princess:

    I disagree.

    I am as pale as a ghost & white dresses only serve to make me look more like a zombie. Ivory dresses actually bring out the slight flesh tones that I have lol.
