I’m wearing Essence of Australia style D1331. I love the look without the modesty panel but I’m getting a little nervous that it might look trashy to some people (mainly my grandparents who are in their 80s).
I tried the dress with the panel and i just think it looses something special. I don’t know. My bridesmaids are wearing dresses with black sashes, I was thinking it might look pretty if I wore a black modesty panel under the dress instead of the ivory.
I need some opinions! Do I wear it as is without the modesty panel? Do I wear an ivory panel or black?
i added some pics 🙂
Thanks in advance Bees!

If you feel confident in it, then I would rock it without any panel.

I like it without the modesty panel, but if you really want to add it, I would go with ivory. I don’t think the black would look that great.

Yes, I’ve lost 10 pounds since that pic and I’ll loose a few more by then. I ordered a size smaller and I’m going to risk cancer and wrinkles to be tanned too.

I just don’t think that sheer/see through anything is appropriate on a wedding day. I would add an ivory panel.

Maybe as a compromise, wear an ivory modesty panel for the ceremony and go without it for the reception afterwards. If you do wear one, I think the ivory would look better.

Ivory modesty panel 🙂 I think black would look a little strange.

@PinkMapleTree: It’s pretty provacative without the panel but you seem to really like it without the panel. I like PP’s suggestion to wear the panel during the ceremony and take it out for the reception. I guess you can decide whether to wear it for pictures (I say wear it but I am a bit of a prude when it comes to formalwear.)

Add the ivory modesty panel. I don’t think the see through is appropriate.

I really don’t like it at all being see-through.

I would add the ivory modesty panel. I think black would look weird (I wouldn’t look very black though a layer of fabric and lace). I might be biased though b/c I really dislike the look of sheer/see-though bodices b/c I think wedding dresses should have some sex appeal (i.e. some cleavage/exposed back, somewhat form-fitting), but they should leave a lot to the imagination (i.e. granny doesn’t want to see your belly button, or your very low-almost-ass back). But that’s just my personal preference.

I’m now having some pretty bad dress anxiety. Maybe even buyers remorse. Yeesh! I didn’t think opinions would be so vehemently against the sheer top! I thought the same about it in the fitting room too but all my ladies were oohing and aahing… Crap crap crap.

It’s your wedding, you get to decide what’s appropriate. I’ve seen people in short skirt wedding dresses and if they are comfy in that then who cares!! You (hopefully) only get one wedding and if you have the desire to wear that dress as is, then rock it like you mean it! Anyone that complains can cover their eyes, it’s not THAT reveiling.

I personally would wear the modesty panel. It depends on your culture etc. If your grandmother will be shocked by the dress, just wear the modest panel. You can always take it out for pictures.
