I would think a good seamstress (I would recommend going to someone other than a seamstress at DB) would be able to fix almost anything.

If not, I think a halter strap would look super cute!

It sounds like a simple fix! Bridal stores fix these things all the time ๐Ÿ™‚ dont stress ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with PP and think that it should be no problem for an alterations department or seamstress to take care of it for you! If they can’t I think that straps wouldn’t take away from the dress at all so that’s definitely an option!

I have the same dress (but with a train)!  I made an appointment with a highly recommended seamstress in my area and she did a great job. She inserted a two inch wide elastic band that hooks together like a bra strap (between my waist and boobs). When it’s clipped together the dress stays up and doesn’t budge – without even zipping it up! 

You’ll be just fine!  Try doing a google seach for bridal alterations reviews in your area. I just picked the woman with the best reviews. Goodluck!

I had this dress too and I added a halter strap, it was just a very plain thin strap, I only wore it for the reception and it held the dress up nicely…. however it did rub a little on my neck, but I did actually really like the way it looked with the strap!

@KATbike: I got the shoes at Norstrom about a month ago, so they may still be there.

Once you hook up the elastic strap the dress doesn’t budge – any wedding dress seamstess can add one in for a reasonable cost, since it doesn’t involve ripping the dress apart.

I think the sweetheart neckline makes the dress, in a way. I wouldn’t add straps, but like PP’s have said, a seamstress should easily be able to tailor it better. Still, it looks beautiful on you!
