O.k so I finally decided I really like my dress. Only problem is that I think I want to chane the neckline into a sweetheart. Here are some pros and cons
It will make my boobies look better 🙂
It will make my dress more interesting/flattering
I won’t look like a mummy hahaha
My first fitting isn’t till 3 weeks before the wedding, don’t know if that enough time!
what if I don’t like it?
what are your opinions ladies?
heres a picture of my dress (keep in mind it’s about 2 sizes to small and rhe pic was taken with a cell)

Given it’s coming in three weeks before the wedding, I’d be hesitant. However, I do think a sweetheart neckline would look great on you, not that it already doesn’t 🙂

I think it is stunning how it is – your boobs look great in it already and who needs the extra stress of alterations!

I think it looks great on you the way it is, but I am partial to sweetheart necklines, so if it were me, I would change it to one.

I’m a massive fan of the sweetheart neckline (my own dress has a sweetheart neckline) BUT given that you’ve only got 3 weeks I wouldn’t go there. If it’s difficult or they botch it you’ve left yourself with VERY little time to do anything about it. The dress looks fabulous as it is, so I wouldn’t risk it!

I am a sweetheart neckline person too and if you had more time, I would say go for the sweetheart. But with so little time I’d be hesitant to do it especially if things don’t work out like you expect.
I think the dress looks great on you already as is!

Definitely! It’s sooooooo much more flattering. Straight across necklines are a little harsh IMO, and they draw attention to arms and armpits which are usually the least flattering part for most of us. A sweetheart tends to hide those pudgy bits a little and draws attention up to the face. It doesn’t have to be a full-on sweetheart – even just a little dip will help soften the edge and make it more feminine and flattering.

Can you move up your fitting date to get one ASAP? WHile I love sweetheart necklines, it looks great as-is also. Maybe feel out the seamstress and see how large of an alteration it will be. They’ll be able to let you know if you should be concerned about how close the wedding date is…

@TealaB: I wish I could move it up! The dress isnt’even in yet! I am freaking out!

I think the sweetheart would be nice, but it doesn’t sound like you have time. You could talk to a seamstress about their opion given the dress and see whether they have time.

I think you should do it if you really want it! I am a big fan of necklines too!
Here are the rebuttals to your cons:
-my sweatheart neckline change only cost $35
-They can do it in less than a day or two, if they know the wedding is soon. (It literally only takes about 20 min to sew, if they aren’t cutting the dress.)
There are two ways to do a sweetheart neckline. Ask your seamstress for details. The first way, they actually cut the material to be more heart shaped. The second way they just gather the material around the boobs and squeeze it to make the heart shape. I would suggest you go with the second one because if you don’t like it, then you just cut the thread that is holding it together.

I’m actually a big fan of straight necklines and I think your dress looks great as is.

THis may not be entirely helpful but either way I think the dress looks great…
