So I had my first fitting and I still love my dress BUT,
my sister points out it sits too low on my chest. What do you all think? Is there anything a seamstress can do to make this fit better in the chest area? Please help, feel free to be honest cause my date is fast approaching!!! It fits pretty good otherwise, but I’m wondering if I need to hike it up higher or add some lace to the top or something…since my sister thinks it seems the side view gets ‘questionable’. I dont want it to look trashy. Help!!! Thanks!

Personally? I think it looks great on you. Not too low at all.

Woops, sorry. I see the photos now.

I personally like strapless dresses that sit more in the armpit area with more chest coverage.
If you are comfortable with it then go with it, but I would be afraid that walking down the isle something might pop out or even more likely while dancing. I hate to say this, but I think girls with smaller chests can pull off the lower dress thing but since it looks like you’ve got a nice size chest, I would vote for more coverage.

I don’t think it looks trashy at all! It looks like it fits you well, so I’m not entirely sure how a seamstress could adjust it. I’m a little more conservative than some, so I probably would not feel totally comfortable with the neckline, but it’s YOUR dress, not mine. How do you feel about it?

I think it looks great and not too low! However, if you’re going to be uncomfortable and self-conscious, you might want to ask your seamstress if there’s anything she can do. You look beautiful already, now you want to make sure you’re comfortable, too!

Not to low at all. It looks great on you! Beautiful!

I think it is supposed to be that low. I know mine is! My boobies are all out there for everyone to see, lol. At least we’ve got something to show off!! Be glad you look so feminine is that gorgeous gown.
If you are feeling self-conscious, I recommend 1) Try getting used to the idea that it’s ok to show a little skin and if that doesn’t work 2) then talk to a seamstress, I’m sure they can add something to cover you up.

from my experience make sure you put it on the way you want day of! I was so excited when getting dressed with everything going on, photographers, people trying to undress me infront of everyone etc. I wish I had pulled it a tad higher on my chest. Once I was in it was too late to make adjustments!

Are you wearing a necklace with your dress? I think wearing a necklace that sits half way between your shoulders (bottom of neck) and the top of the dress would “even out” the space on your chest. Personally, I don’t think the dress is too low, but a necklace would help divert eyes away from the edge of the dress

Thank you all for the opinions!! I almost started crying yesterday when I realized that it might not be working for me. I’m just so torn and a bit depressed. I’m sure you can tell from my pics that I’m a ‘curvy’ gal, and I was feeling hopeless that I wouldnt ever look good in anything. I’m not opposed to working with the seamstress to maybe add just a touch more of the toulle that they use at the top, but maybe a necklace would help a bit. I hadn’t planned on wearing one because I bought huge earrings and planned to wear my hair up…
But now I’m wondering if I should nix that, wear my hair down so that it covers my shoulders a bit and then I could wear a big necklace to fill up the bareness. waa!

I think you look striking (in a good way) if you don’t feel comfortable I would suggest a bolero during the ceremony but definitely don’t mess with the dress it looks great.
