I was torn between 2 dresses, one was cheaper and the other had the sweetheart neck I wanted. I was originally told I could convert the cheaper to a sweetheart, so that’s the one I got. I had my fitting last week, and the tailor said once they opened the seams and got a better look, the dress would lose its integrity and the rounded peaks of the sweetheart neck might flop around (effectively flashing people). Obviously I’d prefer to save the flashing for the honeymoon, so I said nevermind. I’m picking up my dress for good tomorrow, and I’m totally second guessing. I REALLY really wanted a sweetheart neckline, but I don’t know if it’s worth the risk since I don’t really know what it’ll look like. Unfortunately I don’t really have a good photo of the top since I’m always the one taking the picture. But here’s the best views I’ve got.

Actually your dress looks like it has a slight sweetheart neckline to it already, but it is subtle. The dress is totally gorgeous, btw.
As for ruining the structural integrity of the dress, I think it depends on how dramatic a sweetheart neckline you ask for. A slight dip couldn’t hurt, right? But a big one might. How much of one were you asking for?
p.s. I moved the post to the dress board for you

I think it looks perfect. Great pick!
I’m having the same battle right now with my dress in terms of the style I traditionally love and the style I purchased. I got a drop waist when I usually go for something that brings more attention to my waist… I’ve been going back and forth about it, and in the end, I’m loving what I have. It isn’t what I *dreamed* but it’s gorgeous and compliments me just the same. And kind of changes my mind on what I thought looked good on my body type.

The top is definitely not straight across…it has a bit of a sweetheart to it. I think it looks great. I say don’t risk altering it and don’t stress about your dress decision – it looks beautiful on you.

I say the dress looks great as is. It’s already body hugging so that gives it so much appeal to it already. If anything why don’t you just get another dress for the end of the reception that has a sweet heart neckline.

i agree with the first poster, that says it already has a slight sweetheart and i guess you could probably alter it slightly – but not teh typical huge dip of a traditional sweetheart. can it be slightly dipped to make you feel better?
but honestly it looks great as is.

I think it looks wonderful! It honestly looks like more of a scoop neckline than a sweetheart, but I wouldn’t change it at all. It gives the same effect as a sweetheart, which I think is sooo much more flattering than straight across.
It looks amazing and you’re going to be gorgeous the day of your wedding! I for SURE would not try to find another dress. And ditto the pp who said it makes your body look great as well.
