So when I bought my dress I was under the imression that a good amount of money was going to be provided to us from FI’s family who happens to be much more modest than mine. I ended up ordering a beautful custom lace gown by Lila Couture in January and will not recieve it until June… My intention always was and has been to alter the neck line to “sex it up” a bit, but now that I don’t have to worry about making anyone else happy I really want to vamp it out and give it the WOW factor by brining my “girls” to the show.
I am going to upload some picks a moment, bus so far here are some of my ideas:
- thing out the straps in front to make the open area wider
- sweetheart the SHIT out of the neckline
- OR really dramatize the V
- Build in a really nice padded cup / bra to pump up the volume
Let me know your thoughts! I can’t stop obessing over how I am going to make these changes and what would look the best!

With that style of dress, you don’t need to make it show more skin to be sexy! Once it’s altered to fit your body, it will just look sexy since it is hugging your curves. I wouldn’t do any of the changes you have proposed other than add cups to the dress. The other things just will cheapen the look IMO.

i would leave it alone and wear a really good push up bra if you want the girls out!

I’m afraid if you mess with it too much, you risk making it look really trashy. It’s beautiful the way it is. Especially if you’re getting married in a church, your “girls” shoudn’t have a prominent place in your wedding. It’s just going to make people uncomfortable.

Maybe I’m just worried due to the low quality picures, and the fact that the dress was way too large on me.. The V as it is really is high, and even if I added just a bra to it you wouldnt see a peak of cleavage. Maybe I’m being a bit dramatic in how much I want to show in the above description, lol!
Also, the back of the dress I tried on comes really low, but I customized it so that sheer lace overlay comes up really high about 6.6 inches higher with an accentuating scoop . It will be curve hugging, be really modest as well.. ps. I added buttons that will start from that top and go all the way down the train 🙂

If anything, just add cups:)

WOWZAS!!! I’m shocked at how many voted to just leave it be, lol!! Hopefully it comes soon sooner than scheduled so I can stop spectulating and really assess it knowing how it looks on me once it’s on me in my size… Tell me i’m crazy if i am – but my biggest concern is that it may look dowdy if I don’t “slink” it up just a tad.

I don’t think it needs sexing up at all. It is not dowdy, it is demure. Demure is good!
A wedding gown should be flattering and feminine (which this is) but sexy/vampy takes away from its elegance and seriousness. This is definitely one day in life that I believe the bride should not appear concerned that she needs to attract male attention with flaunting her sexuality. Her fiance is waiting to marry her on this day… for who she is, not what she flaunts. Definitely a day to appear confident, regal and secure.

I’m going to go against the conservative majority, and say, make it a v!!!

@bebero: I think so , too!! Ha! not a plunging v but def a V!! I suspect It would be far more flattering than all that fabric swallowing me up!

I’d wait until you’ve had the first round of alterations before you consider anything. You only need about 6 weeks for alterations, so you have plenty of time between June and September even for the most dramatic alterations.

@mrsSonthebeach: this is true! Ugh.. I’m driving myself cray cray waiting though… It’s been 3 months since I ordered and I’m only have way there…

@Starling13: I love it the way it is. Its fitting so looks sexy anyway. I would wait until you get it, try it in your size, then decide.

I agree with a lot of the bees. The dress is beautiful, looks soft & romantic. Not the kind of dress you’d “sex up”. Once its altered to fit your body, it will look great. If anything add cups.

It’s gorgeous and sultry without being overtly sexy (remember that your dad and your grandma are going to be seeing your girls along with your FI!) Keep as is!
