It looks like it already has a slight sweetheart. I’m partial to sweethearts so I say go for it.

Dress twin! Finally found someone else who bought her!

I’m also thinking about making the sweetheart a little deeper… Here I am in the sample:

Here it is after I “altered” it in Paint:

It’s a very, very slight change, but IMO makes a world of difference.

And for the record, even if you don’t lose weight you look fantastic in it.

I think it depends on if the sweetheart style looks good on your body type. For me, I found that sweetheart dresses were WAY more flattering on me, so I chose my dress knowing I would have it altered. Like yours, mine had a very slight dip to begin with.

@CatyLady: Haha I highly recommend trying alterations in Paint if you can- it takes a bit to get it right, but at least I have a ballpark idea of what a change would do to the dress before I ask a seamstress to do something that can’t be undone.

I think it would look great as a sweetheart!

PS – You do not need to lose weight!  You look beautiful as you are.

I took my dress to the tailors to have altered to a sweetheart neckline but they haven’t giving me a price as of yet. I just dropped it off last week so I am a little nervous. I really want a sweetheart neckline.  This is my regular tailor so I normal take my stuff to him so I am not nervous about his work. How much did it cost everyone?  I am just trying to have an idea.

Oooh, perfect topic! Now that I’ve been staring at this picture for the past 48 hours straight I’m considering giving my dress a teeny bit of a more pronouced sweetheart too. Or am I over-analyzing? What do you guys think? PS. Stine – I love your dress! I think it would look fantastic as a sweetheart but it’s beautiful as is too.
