Hi everyone! I had my first fitting yesterday, and I really love my dress, but I’m afraid that the neckline is a bit too low. I’m not sure what can be done about it. I was planning on wearing my hair up for the wedding, but maybe I should wear it down to compensate. I don’t have boobs to speak of, so I don’t really have to worry about anything falling out. I just want to look great. What do you all think? Is it something everyone will notice or will it be ok?

Is there any way that they can raise the neckline?
If not it still looks great! I would go with your hair down and maybe a large necklace?
Just my thoughts!

I think that if you wore a large and slightly higher necklace, you would be fine and could still get away with having your hair up.

The dress is gorgeous, btw., but the neckline is too low, IMO. It looks like your dress is just about to slide down.

You have gorgeous bone structure, shoulders, and arms. I think the dress looks absolutely perfect. Will you be wearing any jewelry? A double stranded pearl necklace or something large, a statement pc similar to Miss Panther?

I agree that it is a little too low. You have a fantastic body though and look great! See if they can adjust it. It does look like it is falling down.

I see where you’re coming from. But I think it’s more apparent because your hair is up, your chest is bare and the style of the neckline emphasises your womanly bits. So yeah i’d give hair down a try 😉

As of now i think it looks fine, IMO its a little low. What I am more concerned about is what will happen when you wear it for the day. My dress fit like a glove when i put it on at 11:00am but by 3:00 we had to pull it up and redo the corset as it just strecthed from being “worn in””. Im worried that yours might become loose and then go a little to low, if you know what i mean.

First off, your dress is really beautiful! I wouldn’t say “way too low” but maybe just a bit lower than ideal. I think a statement necklace and hair down could cure it though… if you are into that kind of look.

I love the neckline!! Like a pp said you have beautiful bone structure. With your figure you can pull this off and not have it look vulgar. I love it!!! Once you’re all done up with the hair and veil and jewelry you won’t feel so naked. It will feel natural and formal.

I think it looks a bit low, but from the side it seems to sit where it needs to to keep your “bits” covered. I would think adding a statement necklace will help remove that feeling of being “bare.”

The dress is beautiful, I love the back, but I do think that the cut is a little low. Could some kind of sticky tape hold it up a bit higher and ensure no slippage on your big day?

I think it is perfect, the ideal canvas for a stunning statement necklace. I large necklace will really break up that space still allowing you to wear your hair up.

I think it looks great and with your figure it doesn’t look like you are about to fall out. (i’m in the same DontHaveMuchUpTop boat as you). You can totally pull this look off! But, if you are uncomfortable with how love it is, see if they can add some material to the back of the sweetheart (still keeping the added material in a sweetheart shape as well). But, again, I think it looks fabulous on you and once you are all ‘dolled up’ I think it’ll look even more glam! 🙂

Thank you everyone for your suggestions and kind words! I emailed the seamstress to see if we could hike it up a bit, so I guess I’ll see what she says.
As for a necklace, I know that my fiance bought me a pendant as a wedding gift, but it’s not a statement piece at all. Bummer. I will see what the seamstress can do and then work on my hair and the jewelry.
Thanks again! You ladies are the best!
