I’m new to wedding bee and first off I want to say hello to all of you beautiful brides (&brides to be)! I’d love to have your honest opinion on this subject. I have been looking at wedding dresses for what seems like an eternity and I always seem to go for the “sexy couture” styles such as the picture above (or below) I’m torn however. I worry about what may be precieved as “too sexy” or even dare I say…. Slutty? When I asked my mothers opinion she gave me a surprising answer. She said I should go for it. “You’re young & you have a nice figure. You’re not going to look like this forever so you should go for it.” I love her advice… But I’m still a bit torn.. Opinions.

Go with what YOU love! I think that dress is stunning by the way, not slutty at all. Rock it!!

I honestly think it depends on if you have the body for it. If you’re super-model status with smaller assests, I think it can look classy and sexy. However, if you’re a curvier gal with assests for days, I think it could be a little *much*.
Where you’re getting married will also help determine the style of dress you should purchase. If you’re getting married in a church, NO, but at a modern hotel or other lounge-y venue I think it would work.

if your body looks like that it will be fine. I like a more demur look but rock it if it suits you.

Go for sexy! You don’t have to be rail thin to pull off a plunging neckline either. I think as long as everything is contained, there’s no chance of a wardrobe malfunction, then you’re golden. I knew for sure that I wanted something at least a little sexy.

Sounds like you want sexy but you’re worried about being appropriate?
If you’re getting married in a church, then maybe consider erring on the side of propriety. But if you’re NOT getting married in a church then I agree w PP – wear what you love!!! Also if the gown matches the over all style of the wedding, then no one will judge you at all. Your guests will just think it’s part of an over all wedding style.

If you want the focus of your wedding to be your body and how sexy it is, go for it. It really depends on your personality and style. If you are used to wearing figure revealing clothing and more sexy outfits, your friends and family will probably expect a dress like this and won’t bat an eye. My friends and family would be very embarrassed for me, but I’m a much more conservative person.

If I had her body I’d rock it out. So as PP say it really depends on your figure, how comfortable you feel and the setting of your wedding

Personally, I wouldn’t for myself – I have a good body but with extra ample boobies, I might look back and feel it was a bit all out there – my friend got married while she was pregnant and I think the whole congregation spent the day worrying about whether she was going to spill out 😉 but if you love it, why not?! Firstly, slut? NO! You’re getting married, and that’s just misogynistic BS anyway 🙂 it’s your day to celebrate your love and feel amazing, if you can rock it, I say do it. x x

I absolutely LOVE Galia Lahav!! Found her couture dresses on Pinterest a few months ago and pinned almost every single one haha 🙂 They’re very expensive tho, so when the time comes, I’ll definitely try
to stick to the budget and look for something similar 😉 I say go for it!! And I agree with PP that it depends on your personality and style. For me, I just worry about whether my Future Mother-In-Law would disapprove…

I like it. If you can pull it off, do it! I agree with pp, I wouldn’t wear it to a church ceremony. But it wouldn’t be the worst one, either. You’d still be covered.

My hangup on that dress would be how comfortable it is to run around in for hours. Taking photos, the reception, dancing, eating… Based on that alone I would dump it. I’d rather be comfy than sexy.
Also it looks like it’s practically glued to that model in the chest area. I have a hard time believing a “real” human would look the same fit-wise, though I suppose it depends on how it’s constructed. As far as sexiness, while it’s not my cup of tea, I wouldn’t consider it slutty. It covers almost the entire body and you can’t even see the actual cleavage. That depends on your bust size, of course.

Tape. It’s held everywhere it needs to be by tape, which works wonders.

Thank you all so much for your help! I love the tape idea too. I am 5’5 around 120-125 lbs so I’m not as skinny as the model in the picture but I am a little on the slim side. As for too much curves I have wider hips but unfortunately that’s where my “curviness” ends. I am not having a church ceremony so luckily it will be in a more “laid back” setting. Which I think is a lot more acceptable to wear a sexy(er) dress. Thank you all again so much I really got that added boost of confidence to go for my dream dress. (:

Well, to me it’s an amazing red carpet dress, but not my personal idea of a wedding dress at all. And while I would NEVER call a woman slutty – as a pp said, that is misogynist bs – it a is very sexy dress and intended to attract . But hey, so what , you don’t know me and I think you will look amazing. !
