Hello, hello, my busy little bees. 🙂
My dress arrived recently and I am completely blown away by her beauty. She is unique, romantic, feminine, bohemian chic meets bridal couture. I love every aspect of her design, including the sheer bodice. I am wearing a dress and 100% covered in fabric, but a lightweight fabric that happens to be a delicate, boned, ruffled lace. I appreciate the fact that only my midsection is slightly visible and there is no cleavage spilling everywhere. However, I would like your feedback about this newer trend on the bridal fashion scene. Do you love it, just as it is?? Or should I wear something underneath to camo my actual skin and line the dress?? Would love your opinion. Thanks and much love!
*edit: I am getting married indoors and at my venue location, which is not in a church, if that makes a difference. My theme is “Bohemian Chic”. Love it! 🙂
(sorry for the ridiculous pics, but I had to rush while shooing fiance out the house!)

I think I have seen many gowns that the see through looks tacky (yes I used the “T” word…) But this is one I think looks great. You dont see anything inapropriate, and I like the design the details make that you might lose if it were lined… VERY pretty!!

I love it just the way it is. Which is unusual for me as I usually hate that look. Somehow with this dress and on you it looks just right. Are you getting married in a church or are your guests very conservative though?

You are getting married outside, correct?
If you are, I would have someone take some photos of yourself in the sunlight and some in the same lighting as the reception location. Some sheerer dresses go see through under flash or bright sunlight.
If those photos come out without being see through, leave it. IMO, it just shows beautifully and really reflexs your personality and I dont thing that it is overly showy. You could always place a light shear square under the dress to see if you like it lined or not, but I would keep it a very light fabric that is almost shear itself, that way it wouldn’t add weight or heaviness to the dress.

I’m usually not into the sheer bodice, but I’m kind of loving it on this dress. I guess all of the other dresses I’ve seen with a sheer bodice also had lots of beading and a really enormous skirt. Generally very over the top, and I don’t dig the whole miss america vibe. This is ethereal however, and I dig it.

In my personal opinion, I would line it. But in the end, if you think its not that risque, go for it! Either way its very beautiful on you. Flatters your figure very well.

I would line it if it were my dress.
This is only my opinion though, you chose the dress for a reason, it spoke to you- sheer bodice and all!

I love it the way it is. I think it tiptoes the line of too sexy, but is so feminine and flowy on the bottom that it stays in the classy zone. Don’t line it, keep it interesting.

In the close up pics I love it as is, but in the fourth photo I feel like I’m seeing too much. I would probably line it with a fine, sheer fabric. That way you’ll still see the beautiful detailwork and won’t lose the ethereal quality, while being just a touch more covered up.

I’m with the other girls that don’t usually care for those types of dresses. Yours is very pretty!! I would maybe see what it would look like outside or during the day, but I think it will be fine. I think you should leave it 🙂

So lovely! My dress had a sheer bodice on the designers website but mine had a solid bodice when I bought it… I wouldn’t have gotten it with the see through bodice but I like how yours looks =) who is the designer?

That dress is amazing! And it really fits in well with the theme you described. It looks great on you! From the far away pics, you can’t really tell that it’s sheer, but the close up ones are a little more obvious and under different lighting and with camera flashes, it might be a lot more than you expected.
Personally, I would try to line it with a little something- maybe you could use a sheer fabric to line it so that it’s still sheer, but not quite as see-through? I wouldn’t go all out and line it with a completely opaque fabric though.
