    It’s a beautiful dress.  If my family, his family and my children will be there, then I will be very conscious.  I’m somewhat conservative so I know I would have not picked this dress for me because I know I will get terribly shy.  So my answer to your question would be- I think it’s a bit too revealing for my liking, however, I am fine with showing the back.  It’s more of personal preference and if you are comfortable wearing it around your guest showing your cleavage.

    Yeah, I think it’s pretty revealing. It’s not just the front necessarily, but the low front PLUS the low back PLUS the form fitting. Maybe a seamstress can alter the front a bit?

    That’s pretty tame, honestly. There’s a good amount of skin but it’s not like your boobs are busting out or anything. I’ve seen brides wear entirely sheer tops with just strategically placed lace. Your dress looks lovely and I wouldn’t think twice about a bride wearing that.

    I think it is right on the cusp, but if you are already feeling self consious, it probabaly isn’t the best choice! You want to feel comfortable and beautiful on your day!

    It’s more revealing than I personally would like.  I don’t mind the back, but the low cut and lack of support would bother me.

    I don’t think it’s shockingly revealing or anything, but it is a little more revealing than I’d personally wear. I’d be fidgeting all night trying to make sure I was covered. It depends on how often you wear lower cut tops or dresses though. If you’re comfortable then go for it.

    It’s a beautiful dress and you have a lovely figure but it looks like it needs a little support up top for sure. Even with the correct bra/support, I think it still would be a bit too revealing. I love the back.

    I think that’s a lovely dress. I think if you have a seamstress take up the straps and take it in for you, you’ll worry less. IMO, if you’re worrying now, you’ll always be worrying.

    tduck1 :  I agree and think the top is not sitting on the chest where it’s meant to. Pull it up a skosh and I bet it will look more supportive as well as less revealing.

    I think you can have a low back or low front but not both

    kp787 :  It’s definitely on the more daring side, but it all depends on how comfortable you feel in it. If you are conscious enough to ask, it’s probably not the right choice! 

    ETA: hmmm.. however… if you were to take the straps up a little, it would probably cover your bust a little bit more and may be a bit more modest. I don’t see anything wrong with the back, though. If you pin the straps up and still feel self conscious, I would reconsider this choice.

    This is not bad at all. It looks lovely. I literally just stumbled across a see through bridal dress and entire bridal party in Miami. I mean see through.. and they had in bright colored undergarments with a white and nude colored dress. Reminded me of a Kardashian type thing haha. Just when you thought you seen it all.. but no this is perfectly fine 🙂

    Its not so  much the cleavage but the total  area of uncovered  skin. It is a lot , though  not vulgarly so.

    I agree with pps  that it needs better fitting if you do go with it  As it is ,  a careless move might reveal a lot of sideboob.

    I feel as if its revealing, without being too inappropriate or “sexy” for a wedding. It could do with some support up top, perhaps you can get it altered.
