I feel like because you’re a thin girl you can totally get away with this being lower. If you were super busty it would be another story, but your smaller bust keeps it from looking vulgar. That being said, if you’re going to be uncomfortable in it, definitely have them correct it! You don’t want to be pulling at your dress all night!

I think it looks fine. Maybe you can wear a statement type necklace if you think the amount of skin showing needs to be balanced out. But otherwise, I think it’s nice as it is. πŸ™‚

spacediamonds:  Try it on with a necklace. I don’t think it’ll look too low once you add your accessories.

Forgive me but I do  think it looks like it is sitting too low on your chest, as if it needs a good hike up. .  I almost  think you have simply pulled  it down too low when you put it on….and this  gives a  slightly flattening effect too, I think.

If not , a pp suggested   sewn-in cups and I think that might  make  the difference and lift  it a bit .

I think it’s true a statement necklace would  have a  good ‘fill- in’ effect ,  but that beautiful dress is already quite   heavily  embellished so I think that might  be overkill, and a delicate one wouldn’t be effective in the same way.   

ETA , forgot to say you do  look wonderful in it !

I don’t think I’d notice that it was low, but since you pointed it out, I see what you mean. Is the beading supposed to go at the waist line? like this: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/a4/9f/d4/a49fd4d8a3409d89cbc9668cab669a80.jpg

I’m not really sure? haha. but if you’re comfortable and it’s not falling off, I agree with your hair down and some accessories, it will look fine

To me it does look a bit low. If you feel like you have to pull it up every minute then yes you would have to get it altered. I say walk in it around the house/store a few times to adjust the feel to it.

I’m not sure if adding straps is a good idea since it might destroy the beaded lace work at the top. Too much going on around the chest area will make the dress not appealing. So watch out there.

Beautiful dress by the way!! Love it! The tulle part of it is stunning!!

I think it is a beautiful dress and you look stunning in it but yes, it does seem a bit too low! I would want it to sit a smidgen higher if I were you.

spacediamonds:  I hope I didn’t sound negative about such a ridiculously lovely dress. The extra photos you posted show how gorgeous it really is!

 I think a lot of it is down to your height, as I suspected! The opinions here seem to be split as to whether it’s too low, which must be so confusing for you. I think what you can say is that it’d work better if it can be pulled up a small amount, but if not then enough people love it how it is, so don’t get yourself upset or worried over it. It’s certainly nothing like a belt! πŸ˜‰ How does it fasten? Is it a corset?

I would try it with some very light tulle straps- you can just tuck a little material in to get the idea- but if that takes it too far away from what you’d dreamed of, stick with the original dress as is it. You look beautiful!

By the way, who’s the designer/name?
