OOh a tea length bride – me too! I’m having a dress with a sweetheart neckline with an organza overlay made – so the organza will be more of a boatneck… if that makes any sense at all. I’ll put a picture on so if I’d doing a dodgey job of explaining it you’ll understand – but picture it with a sweetheart neckline. Something like this might offer a little more coverage? Is there anyway you could perhaps get a clear ring for your piercing ? Do they exist??

You could always get a fabric inset for a halter… it looks like a V and gets sewn into the dress to cover up some cleavage! Kinda like a turtleneck dickey or layering a camisol under a low cut shirt.

Well, I guess it depends on how high up the piercing is.  I saw the picture, but it looks like it’s really low.  A lot of the dresses I tried on (and I’m still looking) came up pretty high in the bust, and covered a good portion of my chest (I gauged this by a necklace I wear – it hangs pretty high, like right below my clavicle) and some dresses were touching the pedant on my necklace.  That might be because I’m chesty. 

I guess my main point is, halters are very boobage dresses, but I don’t really see a lot of strapless dresses being that way

A lot of seamstresses also might be able to modify a neckline for you (as KMSull suggested with a halter), that shouldn’t be too too hard/expensive depending on the fabric and style of the neckline. You could either try on a dress with a super modest neckline and have them modify it a little or perhaps you could try on a boobtastic dress and have them bring it up a little. I guess what I meant to say is that a lot of bridal salons tell you they can alter the dress for you slightly (like adding straps to a strapless dress), so you could talk to the salon or a tailor/seamstress about it when you try on dresses so that you don’t have to limit yourself so much!

Or, what about a cowlneck dress? One with lots of draping around the neckline in the front? Also, my sister, who has very large scars on her shoulders and didn’t want to have them showing,  wore on a dress with a neckline similar to this one, with lace covering up the skin: http://www.priscillaofboston.com/dress_detail.jsp?gid=610&sfid=50944&f=’ defer=’defer

I don’t think my dress would have showed it… The tulle ruffle at the top helped disguise a big ugly mole that I have in the middle of my chest.  No deep sweetheart neckline for me!
