I have a wedding coming up in September, in Melbourne, Australia, and as my partner will be wearing a green velvet suit coat, I love this burgundy velvet dress to coordinate with him, without being too matchy matchy. However, I’m concerned the deep v on both the front and back may be inappropriate.

It’s beautiful! In my circle of friends that would be perfectly appropriate. But it also may depend on how busty you are.

I’m not at all busty. 10-12D at most.

Its a lovely dress, and not as all inappropriate in my opinion. However, if you’re feeling a bit uncomfortable, what about wearing a black camisole or slip underneath?
This slip has a mesh strip at the top which is designed especially for giving a little extra cleavage cover – https://www.annahstretton.co.nz/collections/undercover-angel-slips-online/products/zita-cotton-slip?variant=28541781904

Where is the wedding? If the ceremony is at a church I would not wear that due to the revealing v-neck. Is it a casual wedding? Maybe. You know your friends whom are getting married. Are they modest or not?

I love it! I think it is gorgeous Bee, I don’t think it is inappropriate at all.

Love it 🙂 And it’s a dress you could wear to other occasions as well ((New Year’s Eve, a nice dinner out) – I’m always more willing to part with $$ for something I’ll wear again rather than a one off

I love it, I don’t think it’s inappropriate at all. If you have doubts about the depth of the V, you could perhaps put a lace or mesh panel or wear a light shawl over it. My mom has relied on those little clip on panels for years.

I agree with elodie2019 :
the appropriateness depends on how much boobage you have. Idk what 10-12 D means though, I assume that’s not American/Canadian sizing, because ours come in 30+ numbers, but here D means big. Small is like A-B……if it fits like it fits the model then it’s cute, but if you have a bunch of cleavage popping out then it might be a little too sexy, depending on the crowd and the bride’s dress.

I think it’s appropriate however I’d be interested to see how it pairs with your partners jacket.. sounds like a lot of velvet!

a lot of Christmas velvet to boot. Burgundy and green just aren’t my cup of tea and the V does look very deep imo. Agree with a PP that it depends on the venue and type of guests. If it’s more black tie, church ceremony then definitely find something else.

I think it looks great. You can find backless or plunge bras that won’t show through the V.

I think it’s perfect. If the ceremony is in a church, just wear a shawl for that portion.

to me itdepends if it is in a church or not, if yes then I would add a scarf to cover the back and neckline during the ceremony. My main “concern” is the split up the leg. If it could be “sealed” somehow to prevent the thigh to show?

Hi everyone, OP here. The ceremony isn’t in a church. For the Americans on here, I’m a 34D by your sizing. I’ll also be wearing a coat for ceremony, so the deep vs will be concealed. @Happycatlady, my grandma taught me how to sew, and I do have a machine, so if my partners family deems it necessary(the bride is my partners cousin), I’m able to sew the thigh split closed. As for it being a lot of velvet, my partner and I wanted to complement each other, but I look god-awful in green, so matching fabrics in complementary colours it was. Thank you kindly, everyone, for your opinions, you’ve been massive helps.
