The cleavage is fine, but the dress itself sits kind of low.

kimmo416 :  I don’t think it’s too much cleavage in an inappropriate way, but the dress doesnt seem to sit on you at the top in the most flattering way. It sits higher on the model and your figure is on point! Can you get it altered? Or did you try a different size?  Otherwise a statement necklace might make it look proportional.

Gorgeous dress though 😊

It’s totally appropriate, but I agree that the dress itself just looks like it sits too low. (Not a cleavage issue but a fit issue)

I think you must be long-waisted like I am. Strapless dresses always sit low on me too. I don’t worry about it. It’s not your fault the distance from your neck to your bust is longer than on other people. The dress is totally appropriate, so go ahead and wear it!

I think it looks stunning and totally appropriate! I agree with PP, a statement necklace would look lovely!

I think it looks a little different on you than the model because you look more long waisted and the model has hair down over the top of her collar bones, which masks how big the gap from the top of the dress to her shoulders actually is. I think as long as it is fitted well enough to stay up, it’s super cute! I Also agree with PP a statement necklace or your hair down might help it not look so low on top. You clearly arent falling out of it or anything, just doesn’t fit you quite the same.

Spaghetti straps looks much better. Additionally fewer worries about a possible pop out!

The strapless version looks better on you and is much more wedding-appropriate.

I rarely like a strapless option  better, but in this  case I do. I think both  of them sit too low on your chest though,  especially the strapless.   I guess you can pull the strapped one  up more though,  and shorten the straps?  Can you get the strapless a bit more fitted in the  bodice so it is firmer  and higher up ? It looks great otherwise. 

ETA I know you said it fits perfectly , but it somehow doesn’t look like it in the pic , especially the left  (your  left)   side.

OP and the model both have lovely figures- but the model’s breasts look like she has 2 invisible hands holding her breasts together and up….either this is some kind of modeling or photography trick (I’ve heard of models taping their breasts) and this isn’t a naturally achievable look….or the model is wearing a strapless push-up bra??? This could be the difference. 

I do like the strapless version better in this case, agree that a necklace or wearing your hair down would balance this out.

The strapess looks amazing on you and a lot more formal than the second one, so I would stick with strapless! I honestly think it looks better on you than the model.
