My seamstress tried her hardest, but she had to take in the bodice so much that it left my girls exposed a lot more than I would have liked. I have 3 weeks until the wedding. Help! What do you thinK? Too much boob for a Sunday morning outdoor wedding at the beach? Any suggested solutions I could take to my seamstress (she already altered the neckline and said she doesn’t think she can do so anymore without destroying the fabric)?
I’m normally okay with cleavage, but I work in an exceptionally professional environment (fully suited) and all of my coworkers will be in attendance.

I think your coworkers will get that it is a wedding and not exspect you in a suit, and I don’t think it is that horrible. The bigger issue than how much boob is showing when you are just standing, but are you going to fall out of your top due to any movements you make at your wedding? I think your top is fine, yes there are boobs there, but youre a woman and women have boobs. An option since the bottom of your dress is so ruffled, could you add a ruffle at the top to extend the neckline?

I personally think you look amazing overall. You’re definitely showing cleavage, but I wouldn’t say it looks bad (in fact, the opposite!) and you’re a woman after all! I also think a beach wedding means you can get away with not being as conservative. I mean, seriously, you look great.

Maybe add a poll? You might get more feedback that way.
I personally wouldn’t be comfortable showing that much at my wedding — but are you? That is what matters. And they really do look like very nice ones 😉

I think you look beautiful. 🙂 I’d be uncomfortable with any MORE boob showing, but I think you’re bordering on okay.
I agree with PP- it’s your wedding, not a business meeting. Surprise- you have boobs! Ha ha.
But yeah, just make sure you feel comfortable moving around in it. I think the way it is now is fine, so long as the girls are properly secured in place and won’t go anywhere lol.

I think once you start moving around you are going to be showing the lady business in a way I doubt you want to. Standing still looks fine, but once you start moving is another story. I’d get something done about it unless you want a whole ‘lotta boob in your reception pics.

@chasesgirl: No, the good news is that they are super secure in there (that is what the last fitting did, because that wasn’t the case last week). I have two small children, so I told her I HAVE to be able to bend over without them moving position. So what you see is what you get. I just worry about what the taller guests will see. lol.

If you feel uncomfortable maybe add a little sheer fabric or lace where it dips. Like this…
You wouldn’t need as much as the picture and the seamstress could cut it so you still had the sweetheart neckline:) I personally think you look beautiful!

I think your dress is gorgeous, and looks really good, even with the bit of cleavage pictured! U asked if it appropriate for a morn beach wedding…I think it is!! I find any beach wedding to be kinda sexy, no matter the time! If u r worried about co-workers being there, do not wear a necklace, but rather big earrings to distract from the neck line?!?! (if that is even an option, as your jewelry may be picked out)!
I think, again, it looks and fits perfectly!!!

@mixtapehearts: We were typing at the same time. Haha. They are pinned down tight. Believe me, if I could figure out a way to literally tape them down, I would. lol.

It fits so perfectly on you and I don’t think it’s too much boob at all! You look gorgeous!

@OUgal0004: Yeah, I definitely was skipping a necklace because that seemed to accent it more. I also was planning to wear my hair down now, because my hair up really showed the boobs off more. kwim? My hair gave some nice coverage.

Eh. I would do something about it if possible if it were me. I’ve shot weddings and got home, looked at the shots and been like ” Shiz, boobs galore once she started dancing and moving around” That’s not a risk I’d want to run, but if you are okay with it it doesn’t look bad at all.

@mixtapehearts: Le sigh. I agree with you. The pictures are what worries me. The last thing I want is to see all of the pictures of me sitting down at the table and see all boob. (We aren’t having dancing.)
Okay, so far the solutions are a piece of lace across the middle or a ruffle?
What about a way to minimize my boobs? Is there a magical Spanx for that?

I don’t think it’s too much.
Your male coworkers will appreicate it. (They are male, afterall)
And your female coworkers will be jealous.
Don’t be ashamed of what your momma gave ya 😉
However, if it really bothers you, you could consider sewing in layer of fabric. Maybe some lace or something sewn in so that it’s layered a bit like the bottom of your dress.
