    You look fantastic in the dress at it is, if it was me I wouldn’t alter it, but you’re the one wearing it.  If your seamstress tells you it’s doable and you’d like the dress to be trendier, go for it!

    I loveee your dress! It is so similar to mine, though, so I’m a bit biased hehe 😛

    I’m kind of torn because I do think the altered back would look really good, but I ended up voting to keep it as is just because it is so classic and elegant as is. I don’t think it is too modest because you have the sweetheart peeking through and the illusion front and back. Also, it hugs your curves beautifully which I think makes it just the right amount of classy and sexy 🙂

    Personally, I think it looks amazing as it is (and you look amazingly gorgeous, holy moly!). But it’s your dress and your decision. I really like how it looks in the back as it is, though–I do not think ‘modest’ describes the dress at all. It’s revealing in a classy way.

    maplebride2014:  I think it is lovely how it is. I photoshopped it lower for you, and honestly I don’t think lowering it will really make it more sexy.

    I think your dress is absolutely perfect as is. You have a lovely shape that gives the dress all the “sexiness” it needs.

    maplebride2014:  Make it your own and then frame it and hang it in your closet/bedroom! THEN YOUR KIDS CAN LOOK AT IT IN AW AND KNOW THEIR MOM WAS A TOTAL FREAKING BOMBSHELL!

    How tight is the back? Mine is very similar but quite snug. I went will straps for comfort but feel like the buttons are just barely closing…
