LOVE the dress. Seriously, that bow is rediculous. But no, sheer is not classy, or really church appropriate. I know our priest would not be impressed! But it’s so pretty otherwise, why not just line the top?

@sooexcited:  I love it!! If you are concerned about it  being too much, maybe have the seamstress line just the front and leave the back sheer. As long as you feel comfortable I say go for it. When else are you going to be able to wear a dress like that??

I guess I am one of those tacky brides lol, but my dress has a sheer back ( the front is not sheer) and I love it, it gives it a little edge

It’s very pretty!  Personally, I am not a huge fan of the sheer bodice trend.  I do love the shape.  However, if you love it, it’s your day, you should go for it:)

@sooexcited:  I’d have it lined.  I am a big nay on sheer bodices. 

And I think if someone points out, calls something or even references ‘classy’ it usually isn’t.  Class is one of those things that are obvious to everyone.  If you have to state it, it usually isn’t.  (And I’m not saying just in reference to this thread.  It’s a general comment, from SYTTD, etc.)

I personally would prefer something lined myself, I would just think it would feel less vulnerable. There’s a lot of lace over solid blush or champagne in recent styles, it might be an option for you if you’re looking to line it. I just wouldn’t feel comfortable in something like that, but then again my dress has a champagne colour underneath all the lace so it kind of looks like I’m nude underneath but not at the same time?

Boxerlover24:  Ooh, personally I think getting the front lined but leaving the back is a great idea for those who like the sheer look. FWIW I don’t think a sheer back is tacky, the front though, that’d be a bit racy.

I would just line it, although I second PPs… if you want to make it a bit racey, line the front and leave the back sheer.

Please don’t have a sheer fronted dress, though…

Boxerlover24:  I think we have the same dress. Mine has a sheer back, quite frankly its hardly noticeable.. Certainly not ‘trashy’.

My mother is the epitome of class and she seemed to think it was beautiful looking, so a bunch of pearl clutchers online saying its trashy doesn’t hold much weight with me. Get what you want, an entirely sheer bodice may not be right for some but there are a lot of dresses that I would deem trashier than something that beautiful. Again, lining the front is a great compromise if you’re unsure.

KC-2722:  My mom loved mine too!! So funny cause she is also kind of conservative about clothing

Boxerlover24: Mine too! And, quite opinionated about what she doesn’t like!

Yes, mine is Allure too! I’ve never seen anyone with the same dress either.. Mine is still getting altered so it doesn’t look as flat and wonderful across the back as yours yet. But, I’m so happy with my choice. The details on the dress are so gorgeous.

KC-2722:  Yes!!! The dress is so beautiful. Its sheer without being too sheer.  I love the lace panels too.

And mine is not altered yet they just clipped it in the front- my first fitting is next week actually (OMG lol) when is your date?? 

Are you nervous about the fit? I have pretty small boobs and Im worried that due to the boning it might look like I have Madonna boobs

Boxerlover24:  End of September!! I had my first fitting 2 weeks ago, another one at the end of July. Yours?

I was nervous about the fit.. Especially the chest! I have a large chest but it still looks Madonna like.. My seamstress is taking out the boning there and reshaping it so its less pointed. I’m not nervous anymore, I also cut the train off because I don’t want to bustle the dress. So far so good, I’m eager for my next fitting because I love the dress so much.

bumpity bump…. what about these dresses guys….too sexy? (serious question) I can’t decide if these cross the line or not.

I know these bodices are sheer but I feel like the sleeves save them…what do you guys think??
