I’ve been a long time lurker and this is my first post! I got a picture of my custom made dress and was wondering what do you guys think of the neckline…should I lower it or is it fine just as it is? I’m a C cup and the original with the lace only was too revealing for me. It kind of looks a bit weird at the moment…maybe because it’s on a mannequin? What other changes should do you think I should make? I’ve attached the pic of the original as well, its the Justice of the Peace Dentelle.
Thanks! Sorry for the large pics.. I have no idea how to make them smaller..

@dorizel: I think that’s a very good replica actually! I think the choice of lace and placement is good for a C-cup chest. If you went with the original see-through lace you might’ve shown a lot of cleavage/side-boob through the transparent fabric.
On lowering the neckline… personally it is hard to tell on a dress form vs. on your actual body, so I wouldn’t change it unless I had tried it on already. You can always have a local seamstress lower the neckline once you have the dress.

@dorizel: Looks beautiful! I’d leave the neckline alone, I’m not fond of showing off all the goodies at a wedding.

@dorizel: the dress looks great. I was wondering where you got it made?

I think it depends entirely how it looks on you, but it looks like it’ll probably be a good height I’d guess

@dorizel: I think it depends on how it looks on you. I’m a Dear Daughter but can pull off low necked tops as my boobs sit high and far apart so if you have a similar chest you could lower it without it looking too raunchy lol.
If your a bit more cleavagy I would say leave it as it is.
Either way it’s such a beautiful dress!

What a stunning dress!
I agree with previous commenters that you can’t really tell without seeing it on, but I think it will look beautiful!

Keep the goodies for the wedding night, not the wedding! 😉
