My dress was altered from straight:

to sweetheart:

I thought it was infinitely more flattering, and the tailor said that it really wasn’t that difficult to do.  Does your bridal shop have an in-house tailor/seamstress that could advise you on the logistics?

I love love love that dress……SO pretty! I am having the top of my strapless dress made into more of a sweetheart neckline – its not totally straight across, but I wanted it more "sweetheart-ish". The woman that does the alterations says that it is possible, but I think that it depends on the dress itself, so I would check with the bridal salon. Either way, I’m sure you will look beautiful in it!

it’s def possible to turn it into a sweetheart neckline and I think it would look really cute! you just have to make sure you get a very experienced tailor.

I talked to a seamstress for David’s Bridal and she said it was EASY to turn a straight into a sweetheart.

I think the dress would like great if you changed it to a sweetheart neckline!

I might do the same thing for my dress… I was wondering the same thing!
