I’m a huge fan of bateau/Sabrina neckline so I might be biased but I think it’s a great choice. These necklines remind me of Audrey Hepburn and all the classy beautiful things from the past 🙂 

I think one downside of a bateau neckline would be that it accentuates the arm. Hence, if you are insecure about your arms you might want to stay away from this design but assuming that the third photo is you I don’t see any reason to stay away from this neckline. 

Beautiful dress and if you’re looking for something classy, I can’t think of anything better than a bateau neckline!

I love bateau necklines, even with my pretty large chest.  I think they’re very flattering and classic.  I also love the sleek satin, and I think it’s the next trend!

 I think this is a beautiful dress! One thing to be concious of is high necklines can sometimes make girls feel like they are choking. Also, alterations can be costly with alterting the neckline depending on how much support is already built into the dress.

Wow I love the back it looks like a butterfly and butterflys repesent transformation which I think works with the wedding and change. I would alter the neck line. I think a v would be best. I would even try and add some beading to the front but thats just me.

My dress has a bateau illusion neckline. I am getting it altered to be as low as possible. It was strangling me in the store. If it’s comfortable though, go for it!

w00kiee:  I chose a bateau neckline dress. The only disadvantage from my perspective is that you forgo having tasteful décolletage and it’s more difficult to wear a necklace. But I like higher necked dresses personally!
