    I think your dress is beautiful, and you look gorgeous- but I would line it. Lining it won’t take away from the loveliness or charm of the dress.

    That said- you should do what makes you happy, this is just my opinion. πŸ™‚

    stunning dress… but I don’t understand this lingerie-esque trend. Leave the lingerie-like corsets for the bedroom. πŸ™‚ When I see the dress hanging sheer, I always think something’s missing, or the dress wasn’t finished.


    OK. How about this… can you find a stretchy tube top to wear under your dress that you can take pictures in? Then take pictures with and without the lining in outdoor natural lighting around the time that you’re going to take your wedding pics, and we can RE vote when we get a better idea of what it will truly look like.

    Normally I think sheer bodices don’t look right for wedding gowns, but you pull this off so very beautifully. You look so… ethereal. Like something out of a fairytale!! Just make sure to do what other bees suggested and take pictures in sunlight and brighter lighting to make sure its not too see through then. πŸ™‚

    That is an amazing dress.  In the words of Rachel Zoe, “I literally die.”

    I say keep it as is.

    Okay, I’ve with held my opinion, but I’m throwing it out there and hope I don’t get in trouble for sharing it. I like it sheer. I think it’s ver fashion forward and a tad edgy. I love it. But, I also think the line from Bride Wars about not altering a Vera is awesome, so feel free to ignore my two cents. πŸ™‚

    I also love the cap. I think it’s cool.

    Hey Boom!

    If you do decide on a removable lining I think that lavender would be the perfect colour! Lavender always looks great with grey, will still show off all the bodice details and is a soft beautiful vintage colour (I think that the peach would look to similar to skin colour for a lining, you might as well go sheer).

    Unfortunately, the boobtube pictured earlier was from a blog so I can’t find that exact top for sale however just checked places like ebay and there’s some lavender boobtubes on there, if you wanted to use a boobtube you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding the perfect top πŸ™‚

    I’m sure that whatever you decide to do, you’ll look amazing! That dress is gorgeous sheer and will be just as beautiful with a lining. I can’t wait to see wedding pics!!!

    As you are not getting married in a church or any place of worship, then I would say it is absolutely gorgeous as it is – no need to change it

    It’s become very fashionable in this area to wear sheer bodices (when I say sheer – some can make your dress look more than suitable for a very modest Nun!) when getting married in the church.  I personally find it extremely disrespectful and I’ll be honest if you said you were getting amrried in a church I think I would have been ready to have a rant…Undecided

    Oh LORD, that dress is purrrfect!  I can’t even begin to describe how much I love your dress.  I have never felt such love for a dress that I knew wasn’t MY potential dress, but I freaking love YOUR dress.  You pull it off spectacularly πŸ™‚  I hope you kept it sheer.

    As first glance I would say no lining but in that 4th picture you can clearly see right through and with cameras and flash … ehhhh I would deff go with lining!

    I think it’s fine the way it is! You have an absolutely amazing body, you are rocking that dress! As PP have said, just make sure it’s not too see-through in different lighting conditions.

    @boombacha:  I take my vote back, no need to line it.

    You aren’t getting married in a chruch! And that dress is so pretty, it’s about the only on with see-thru corset that I like, and plus you look great in it. 

    Thanks for showing this becuase I didn’t hink it was possible to see a see-thru corset dress that didn’t make me go: ahem.
