I was so nervous for my first fitting yesterday. Sorry my mom didnt get the most ideal angles, but here are some pics (including alterations ladies). I have two questions about alternations. First is; sweetheart or no sweetheart? Second question: Should I have some tulle taken out? Would it look better not as puffy? I am a little worried now that this dress is too busy with all the details in the bodice. Do you think there is too much going on?

First of all, your dress looks gorgeous on you!! Good choice! I would say that go for the sweetheart – it goes well with your body. I don’t think the dress looks too puffy.

I agree with the PP. Go for the sweetheart, it’s adorable, but leave the poof. It makes the skirt look great.

I think it is beautiful on you. I am a huge fan of sweetheart necklines, so I say yes, go for it. I also don’t think the dress looks too puffy. If it were me, I would see what it would look like with even more puffiness.

Gorgeous! With or without the sweetheart neckline.

Go for the sweetheart, but leave the skirt – it looks great and certainly not too puffy. You look fantastic!!! Congrats on your dress 🙂

OOOoooOh! I LOVE your dress! It looks amazing… kinda has some of the same details as mine. IMO, I think it fits the style of the dress better without the sweetheart neckline, because the ruching along your mid-waist area is made of straight lines.
Some people’s figure just looks better with one or the other, but you could definitely pull off either look!

If they can do a sweatheart, it would look great. Pretty dress and it looks perfect as is…just enough poufiness.:)

I wouldn’t mess with the tulle. I think your skirt looks great. If you make it less puffy, it will be longer and need to get hemmed again. You look beautiful! Congrats!

Leave the tulle and I think a sweetheart neckline would be really nice. I love the dress and you look great in it.

Definitely the sweetheart neckline. Also, if you do the sweetheart, the volume at the bottom won’t seem as poofy because the sweetheart neckline adds curves to the body so the hourglass shape will be more prominent. 🙂

Wow I love all these responses! I do think the sweetheart is very pretty. What jisikah said echoes my concern with the sweetheart. The dress already has a lot of lines going on, and with the diagonal drop waist, I am concerned the sweetheart would cause there to be too many conflicting angles. Do others see this, or think it wouldn’t be a problem?

My dress has the same kind of criss-cross ruoching on the body part, has a drop waist and it comes with a sweetheart neckline. Let me know it you want to see a pic. I think the sweetheart just adds a little shaping to the boob area (which I personally appreciate, since I am quite busty!) and does not overwhelm the lines of the dress.
