Agree it looks too low.  The dress is gorgeous though.

You can kind of see it here. It was a lot tighter at the bottom than the top. But I think you should take it in at the top a little more too. It has to be really really tight after alterations because it will stretch out considerably on your wedding day And it may start slipping back down to where it is now. Sorry I couldn’t find a better picture, I’m on my iPad 🙂

good luck! Show us your final results!!

Is there seam allowance for her to raise it? I doubt it in a deep sweetheart, the bottom of the dip needs to be snipped close to the stitch line (8th of an inch from) for it to be a clean “v”. You could have her insert a lace or mesh modesty panel if there isn’t the fabric. You should ask what the options are

I think its a touch too low, but if they move it up will your waistline move up too? I can never work out how they do alterations!

It doesn’t look like its fitting your bust very well, I would be concerned about your tata’s shifting aboutor popping out during the day! Did it feel secure?

I agree that it looks too low, and that it isn’t fitting well in the bust.  I think MrsPiggles gave good advice, see if you can ask about getting it tighter at the waist.

Tad too low and I’m not sure what she could do at this point to fix it. It can’t come up any higher because the waist would not be in the right place. It’s almost as if you need ONE more pleat of fabric at the top. See if she could add something and you’ll need to find an additional measure of support. A wee small boost will look awesome.

I don’t think you’re showing too much cleavage, but you need to feel comfortable.
