    I think to each her own. If you want to show cleavage, go right ahead. If you want to wear a high-necked gown, do that as well.

    my strapless sweetheart neckline dress showed a bit more than I originally intended (definitely not vulgar, but I’m a rather conservative dresser) because it would slip down when I moved too much, but my chest is large and I like it, and so does Darling Husband, so I wasn’t going to try and hide it. 

     

    One other thing, pay attention to friends or family who discourage it, in my experience, it was usually my less well endowed friend/family that tried to make me reconsider and I now realize it was jealousy.

    I’ll have cleavage in my wedding dress!!! Not a lot, but it will be there. For me, I was okay with this because the rest of the dress is very covered and modest, ie chest, shoulders and back all covered, except the v cut and it’s a full skirt. I generally think that you should get 1 area to be daring and risque without looking trashy. It’s when you add multiple things (strapless, form fitted bottom, cleavage, backless, short, etc.) that it can get trashy. But that’s me!

    As long as you’re not wearing something like these,

     

    then I dont see any problem with a bit of cleavage. 

     

    For instance, I think this is beautiful and perfectly acceptable.

    Show it if you got it, but tastefully.

    I feel like it’s not a “sexy” occasion. For me it would take away from the elegance and formality of the occasion.

    I showed some but I’m a C cup so not too huge.  I was happy with how it looked and it’s as much as I usually show every day anyway.

    A little is fine, a lot is not appropriate.

    My dress is V-neck and will show some cleavage, but I’m making sure it won’t be TOO low cut. I am fairly large busted and I don’t want to be falling out all night!

     

    @allyfally:  Agreed entirely!!

    @linnylou_88:  Call me old fashioned, but I think certain body parts should only be showed at the beach and/or bedroom. 

     

    I would be terrified to look at my wedding pictures years from now and think “Wow! What was I thinking??”. Not to mention that I try to desexualize myself as much as I can when I’m around my parents. My father does not need to see what I got going on!

     

    Personally I wouldn’t feel comfortable either way – what with dancing, and bending to kiss people and drinking…that’s a mess waiting to happen.

    @weddingbound:  The first one is a girl from a TV show (or so I’ve heard) but I dont know about the second one. 

    Maybe that beach one was a private wedding? I hope.

    I’ve got boobs and no matter what, I won’t be able to hide them. I don’t think the fact I have boobs will take away from the elegance or formailty of my wedding. I won’t be wearing nipple tassles, but I won’t be going out of my way to hide them in a turtle neck
