AdaLee:  I think it looks fine, but the important thing here is what you think. If you feel uncomfortable, ask her to cover it up more.

I agree with you, it is a little on the low side for my taste at the moment. Lovely dress, though!

if you feel uncomfortable, get it fixed. It is a little low in my opinion.

AdaLee:  Are those pix after she took it in? To me, it looks like it’s too big so is sliding down. If it fits ok, then it’s just too low. Maybe a push-up bra or bustier would lift the bust up some? (I mean the bust of the dress, not just your bust) Not sure, but maybe worth a try.

AdaLee:  I had the same issue with my dress, and we both actually had the same exact shape dress. 

What my alterations lady did is, she took it in even more but only on the lower part of the bodice. This way it actually sat a little higher on my natural waist. Imagine a laced up corset, the tightest part of the corset is always at your waist and then as it moves up towards your chest, it gets a little looser because it has to fit the twins. 

As soon as I get home from work, I’ll look for a picture of my dress so you can see what I mean.

This is a very easy fix.

Beautiful dress! I have admired it before on Say Yes to the Dress 🙂 I agree that the bodice and neckline sit way too low. Are you wearing the lingerie you actually plan to wear on your wedding day? If going bra-less, seamstresses will often provide cutlets to slip or sew inside for a lift and rounder profile from the side. But I think a bra can be good structure regardless of chest size. I’d take some trial pictures from the side since there will be some from that angle on your wedding day. If you’re unsure what to wear under, bring your top couple options to the next fitting and get an opinion. But I think, like PP, it looks like maybe it’s slightly too big in general still and perhaps that’s why the weight of the skirt is pulling it down? I wore a strapless silk and alencon Paloma Blanca ballgown and I will just say I think it’s the most important area to pay attention to because no matter how perfectly altered, most dresses/fabrics will give/slide/slouch a bit lower throughout the long hours you are in it, bending, dancing, etc. It’s so important to be comfortable with it because nothing worse than a bride clutching at her gown and pulling it up all night, IMO! Good luck. You’ll be gorgeous!

p.s. Agree with PP, we did something similar with my gown. An internal seatbelt or tightening one that’s already in the dress if applicable will also help!

I love your dress & it looks beautiful on you! Its not that you’re showing too much cleavage, its just that the very middle part is so low that it shows a lot of middle cleavage (the space between the boobs where you basically see the inner outline of the breast) …. so if she could sew the ‘V’ in the very center up a little i think it will take care of it. You can just see down too far in the middle, yes that betted describes it!

I think it looks fine but you definitely want to feel comfortable in your dress!

Your dress is amazing!! I definitely see what you mean about it being low though. I don’t think it’s too low but ultimately what it comes down to is how comfortable you are.

Your seamstress should be able to add a little extra fabric to raise it up no worries, just voice your concerns next time you see her.

It looks low cut, but also really ill fitting in the bust as well. It doesn’t look like it’s supporting the girls at all.
