(Closed) Quick! Weigh in on my dress' neckline!

posted 5 years ago in Dress
  • poll: What type of neckline for my dress?

    Stick with the original pointy sweetheart neckline, it'll look great!

    Go the traditional sweetheart route, that pointy stuffs a hot mess.

    Neither - you have terrible taste. Just give up while you still can.

    I have another idea! (Please post in the comments)

    I personally don’t love it but you do so I’d say make it pointy. I definitely like the second picture more than the third though.

    Meh I don’t like the pointy sweetheart.

    It looks too edgy for a bridal look.

    I think if you were sticking with the straps, then the pointy (leading up into the strap) would look fine.  But since you’re opting for strapless, I can’t say I like it–I don’t really know how to describe it, but it almost looks like the dress is unfinished, or at least I think it would be very obvious that you had the dress changed, if that makes sense.  With the traditional sweetheart, it will look more as if the dress was supposed to be strapless from the get-go.

    I dont like the neckline in the third picture. What is with the weird points on the sides where straps should be?

    The Jim Hjelm 8412 and its copy the Maggie Sottero Marianne both have a pointed bustline.  You could have it made like the above dresses and if you don’t like it after trying the dress on then have it rounded to a sweetheart neckline.

    delphinia:  I was just going to say that my dress (Maggie Sottero Marianne) is somewhat lkke that. It was actually one of the things I lived about the dress – the dramatic neckline. ๐Ÿ™‚

    edit to add: I’ve never heard of the Jim Helm dress you mentioned so I googled it. Perhaps you have the wrong dress since it is an organza ball gown with straps – ?

    FutureMrsJohnson_:  I like the pointy sweetheart. I was a ballet dancer when I was younger and it reminds me of the classic swan lake tutu design so I think that’s why I’m drawn to it! My one concern would be cleavage. I’m just a 34C and I feel like I might be seriously busting out of this, which I’m normally cool with but not in front of my conservative family.

    I love the  middle dress , well I love the skirt and bodice  but not so crazy about the asymmetrical neckline. I think the first  is too lingerie-adjacent and the last group is not like a wedding dress at all, more like the Sydney Opera House with the straps cut off.

    Forgive  me please if this is too  blunt.

    I’m not too big a fan of the pointy sweetheart in the other pictures, but I think that if you just keep the pointed look from the inspiration photo it’ll look nice. Because the inspiration dress is less pointed than the other ones, and looks softer because of the lace ๐Ÿ™‚
