I can only answer number one: but not too much cleavage at all, it looks really great! Sorry, I don’t really know much about bustles :(. Have you heard about Mrs. Nacho’s bustle, though? I know a lot of people on here really love it (you can search “Nacho bustle” and a ton of results come up).

1) Cleavage: Not too much! I think that could look too cleavage on someone with a larger chest, but I think it just accents your curves.

2) Bustle: I think you should try an underbustle of some sort. That just sort of looks like an afterthought and doesn’t do the pretty design on the skirt any justice.

The dress looks great on you, though!

The cleavage is fine and as a fellow barely A girl – rock it girl! You look beautiful with a touch of sexy.


As for the bustle, could you just not bustle it?

I agree. Cleavage is non-issue and under bustle would look better.


By The Way – you look super happy, congrats on getting your dress!

I dont think its too much cleavage at all. My Future In-Laws are catholic, and am worried about cleavage.. Naturally a 32Dirty Delete. (not to sound weird) but your size looks just perfect for a bride! Not too out there, but gives you a good shape to match the style of dress.


WIth the bustle, I think a under would be best, and talking to a seamstress friend, it is realtivly easy for anyone with sewing skills.

I think you’re good on cleavage, and an underbustle might give you the look you’re going for a little better! Talk to your seamstress and see what can be done!

Yay! My music friend! 🙂  The dress is beautiful, and it’s not too much cleavage at all (I’m also a 34 almost A….I totally get it!)  Wish I knew much about bustles…

Your dress is gorgeous and you look beautiful in it. Love the ivory on you! Not too much cleavage at all. No worries. 

I think a French bustle would look great. Hopefully you can find someone to do an under bustle for a good price.

gorgeous dress. Have you considered a french bustle? I think it might look really pretty with that dress!

I think your instincts are right — the bustle doesn’t look quite the way it should.  I vote for the French bustle, as suggested by some other bees.  The dress is gorgeous and you look great.  It would be a shame for the bustle to take away from that!

Your def. not showing too much chest it’s modest and fits very perfectly to you, don’t change a thing! I’m not a big fan of that bustle myself but the dress is very pretty and I LOVE THE VEIL!
