I think that sunless tanning would probably make it more obvious since it would probably pull in the color differently than the surrounding skin.  I don’t know if there is anything that you can do to cover it up so I say embrace it and rock it.  You will look gorgeous on your wedding day no matter what!

Talk with a dermatologist and makeup artist for their opinions on how to diminish the scar. In the meantime, I’ll see what I can find for you! How far up does the scar go? Hang in there, you’ll see this through. 🙂

How high up does the scar come?  Is it all the way to your collarbones, or does it stop lower than that?

my younger brother had open heart surgery when he was four.  His scar is not so noticble now.  But you made it thru an amazing thing .. AMAZING and your scar is your war wound. you should be proud and your going to be around friends and family who all know what happened.  I’m sure you’ll look beautiful.

How would you feel about something like this?  I know you said you didn’t want a high neck because you want to show off your work at the gym, but maybe this would work because it still shows off your shoulders, and it’s sheer enough that everyone can see the shape of your collarbone and such, but the fabric could let you cover the scar a little.

@GreenEyedMoon: Your pic didn’t post.

 

@sassycat494: the scar is probably more bothersome to you than it is noticeable to others. Try to think of it as a badge of courage.

You do have time to do some experimenting with makeup- try Dermablend- used by burn victims.

OK, I just got my dress yesterday and it is an Anjolique, so I’m a little partial here. 😉 But these below styles might interest you. The first one is virtually strapless with a sheer overlay that drapes across the upper chest and over the back beautifully. Perhaps that would be enough to give you the strapless feel *and* cover your scar? I bet you could apply this concept to another dress of your choosing if you have a great alteration person! What do you think? Also, if you want to go with a more one shoulder look here are some options, too. Be open to anything! You have options for sure and might surprise yourself. (I’d imagine you could swap the shoulder strap to the appropriate side as needed.)

(Ignore the weird sleeve outta nowhere on the last photo…WTH? hehe)

Here’s a couple links, too:

You could also try Bio Oil.  I’ve heard really good things about it helping reduce the visibility of scars by helping to heal the tissue.  It’s marketed more for stretch marks, but it’s supposed to help scars too.

My sister had a bad burn accident when she was 10 that left her forearm and chest badly burnt.  She used Mederma for years, and I used it on acne scars and it helped to reduce the scarring.  The only thing I didn’t like about it is that it smelled like onions, so I only used it at night, cause who would want me to smell like onions during the day?? 😉
