i think it all comes down to what you are comfortable with. if you want to cover up then do it. if not, don’t! don’t worry about what other people think about it, it is your dress and if you bow to what people pressure you to do, or what you think they want, you will end up unhappy long term with that decision. personally, i think  you look beautiful and lovely!

I think a little insert of lace could easily be sewn in and would go with the dress really well. If you think that’s what you want, get to a seamstress stat!

I agree with the lace.,, It would be easy to just tack it into place if your uncomfortable.

I would rather see something with the organza, since your dress doesn’t seem to have lace on it.  I am thinking of organza–pleated and “lining” the top of the bodice instead of going straight across.

Maybe a sheer organza that matches the neckline instead of going straight across.

I actually dont think you are showing too much, at least not in this photo.

the thing is, it maybe looks worse than it is when you look down and see your cleavage,  but not so bad from a mirror view,  but i can totally relate to how you feel because i cant ever show my cleavage,  i am very self conscious about it,  i think a modesty panel may look like a cover up TBH.  but i think if it was my dress,  and i wanted to do something,  i would perhaps add a small frill all the way around the top, maybe up to and inch wide.  this would hide your cleavage a bit better and would maybe look as if its the style the dress was supposed to be,  but i think a modesty panel will just look like an add-on.  

this is the kind of thing i mean….i could be made from the same fabric as your dress, or organza like the fabric of your flowers. Obviously the frill on the dress below is quite wide and floppy,  but you could have it stiffer and sticking up.

OR, mabe you could even add an inch wide section of bling trim around the top edge?

I had the exact same feelings as you about a month ago!

I had a modesty panel (apparently they are called vestees) put it (lace with satin behind it).  I’m so glad I did because I felt much more confident during the wedding.

I don’t have a really good front shot of my dress yet, but you can get the general idea from this picture.

maybe you can get a balero for when you are sitting? I think it looks fun but if you are uncomfortable then maybe get some lace sewn in??

I know this isnt the same shapeed top as your dress,  but this is what an  organza frill would  look like,  not too in ya face, but covers up just what you need.

I honestly don’t believe you’re showing too much, but see what your mom would be comfortable with!
