    I voted yes because I think it will be more flattering, and something about the cut at the top at the moment doesn’t look right to me. Your waist looks absolutely tiny, and I think it is a lovely dress!

    @futuremrsk18:  I agree about it maybe hanging a little oddly. To me, it looks like it maybe needs to be pulled up or something. But IMO I think the sweetheart takes away from that effect (at least the Microsoft Paint one does, LOL)

    @EffieTrinket:  Hrm.. I did a really terrible job but I do think it looks better as a sweetheart now that I look at it again LOL..

    OP, I think if you go back after they change it to an A cup and have them pin it again and send us a pic it would be a lot easier to make a decision!

    I think the sweetheart neckline looks pretty darn flattering on you…even if it’s not a proper setup in the pic you posted.  Especially if they can keep your lace detailing on the edge…so cute!!!


    ETA: that’s not you in the pic LOL…but it looks like you.  I think the pic with the sweetheart neckline does look very flattering and the shape looks very similiar to your dress!!!

    I have a smallish chest too and have opted for a heartheart as its much more flattering. I found another dress I liked but it was straight across but the sweetheart just gave it the edge. Good luck x

    I think yes it will look more flattering as a sweetheart neckline.

    I voted “no” for two reasons. One, I think it will make that section of fabric smaller and instead of emphasizing your bustline it will make it look smaller. You have a nice, slim, well-balanced figure and the dress as it is flatters it quite nicely.


    Two, I think the straight across neckline is not as common as the sweetheart and I just like seeing brides do something a bit out of the ordinary with their dresses.

    I love the buttons down the back of the dress! Leave it as is.

    I think that it’s nice the way it is, but looks a little awkward. I don’t think a sweetheart neckline is going to fix that though. Maybe turning it into an off the shoulder of you could?

    I vote for yes. I think the original neckline brings your figure downward since its sort of U-shaped.  I suggest a modified sweetheart or maybe use some lace and make it a one shoulder in order to give it that “lifted” effect to contrast the original neckline. 

    Whatever you choose, the dress is gorgeous on you and you definitely have the figure to pull of any alteration you want 🙂
