FI’s parents are having a party for us, and I bought this dress in white
I love it and it looks really great on, but do you think the open back is inapprorpriate and falls too far toward the sexy end of the spectrum? Especially since it’s also on the shorter side? The party is at their house in the evening. Thank you!

@Rockcandy: What kind of party is it? Are your in laws (to-be) typically very conservative?
I don’t think the open back by itself makes it inappropriate but it also looks really short. (You can say all you want about ‘oh the model is just tall’ but I don’t buy it… dresses are SHORT these days!)
I think if you keep the accessories conservative and are comfortable in it you should be fine.

@Rockcandy: I don’t think it is too sexy as long as it does not gape and display the side of your breasts for all to see.Gaping can take a dress from chic to cheap in a moment.
Some double sided tape would ensure your dignity is maintained.

@mchitt329: hahahah the dress is definitely short — can’t blame it on the tall model. I don’t even know what you call the party — engagement party, maybe? Except it’s one month before our wedding. So pre-wedding party? Random celebration party? We only have sons so we didn’t get to plan the wedding party?
@julies1949: I’m a smaller B, so no gaping side boob whatsoever. One of the blessings of a small chest, I suppose. I do still need to figure out some kind of bra though – I don’t want anything showing through the front either

I think it’s a bit much for a party with the future in laws.

@Rockcandy: I love open back. So chic. No I don’t think it’s too sexy bc the front is high necked with shoulder embellishments. And it’s all one color/not a busy pattern that takes your eye all over the place. Do you have conservative inlaws? If yes maybe save it for a night out with your fine fiance or your girl friends but otherwise super cute!
