  • poll: What do you think I should do to the neckline of my dress?

    Line the lace only

    Line the lace and add the extra lace insert

    Buy the extra lace just in case, but you might not need it

    Other suggestion (explain below)

    I think just lining the lace is perfect. Beautiful dress!

    I think it looks great with just the lining. Very pretty dress!

    I think you only need to line the lace. If you lined the lace AND added the lace insert, it would be changing the neckline quite a bit, almost making it like an illusion scoop neck. 

    The rounded v-neck shape the first bride has chosen for her lining is still compatible with the style of the dress and doesn’t detract from it at all.

    Just line the lace.  It looks like the bride in the first picture has a similiar chest size to you and she’s not showing too much.

    I say line it only.  If you add the lace and line it, it might actually be too covered up compared to how the dress was intended to be

    I’m pretty conservative when it comes to modest dress (see religion noted above – LOL) so my opinion is that if you’re asking whether the dress is too low-cut, it probably is. I don’t like the idea of letting it all hang out for all your guests to look at! 

    Because of your size, I don’t think that the neckline is obscene, but there is some noticeable side-boob going on there that might make Great-Aunt Maggie feel uncomfortable, or (if you have a family like mine) provoke Uncle Dave to make some unwanted jokes.

    So keep my opinions on modesty in mind, but, I really think it’d look better with the lace in the middle, all lined.

    I too think just lining the lace is enough.

    I have been swooning over this dress since it came out and really don’t think it’s too low cut. I agree that you should leave Jenny to her masterpiece! 😀

    Did you order the modesty panel? I had an option to order it and might be cheaper

    @RexManningDay:  I vote for more demure, agree with PP.

    This dress is FABULOUS. I saw it in other photos and you look FABULOUS, but–I will say that I noticed the low cut in a previous photo. Because you don’t have boobies popping out, it didn’t look cheap.

    But remember that you’ll be moving around alot that day, you have such a wondful flowy dress! You don’t want to always be clutching your bodice and worrying about what people can see into it. Make sure your hands and heart are free for enjoying your wedding day, the dress must not be a bother or constraint.

    I voted to line the lace, but I actually really like the extra lace in the middle – and then entirely unlined. I would hope that lining the lace wouldn’t mean some of the detail is lost?

    What are you planning to do in terms of a bra? Do you think you need a bit more support/coverage, even with the lace lined? To me the issue isn’t the sheerness of the lace, but the cut of the v-neck being quite deep, if that makes sense. As in, you would have cleavage regardless of whether the lace itself is sheer or opaque.
