I found this dress that I love except for the shape of the neckline and cups. To me, the cups are too spread out and the neckline is cut too deep. What are my options if I want to alter this bodice? Is it possible to reshape it with such a deep cut? For context, below is a dress with a shape that I like more, it’s more contained and my cleavage is a more accurate size and shape.
Thanks for your help!

That first dress is beautiful dress and looks great on you . I wonder if you just had the neckline filled in a bit with illusion or lace you might be ok?
I think it looks as if it actually fits better than the second although I se what you mean about the ‘wide angle ‘
Of the two dresses, the first is by far, imho, the better dress , classy and a bit different .

Thanks for the advice! I ended up buying the dress and apparently Allure allows customizations to the neckline during production, so I’m having it made with a less dramatic sweetheart. Fingers crossed!

If for some reason if you don’t want to have Allure do it during production so you can see how it may look (in case you have the fear it doesn’t come out right), you could always order some of the lace they use and during alterations at the store have the seamstress pin the lace to the bodice the way you like so you can visualize it.
(BTW, I adore your dress! I have a thing for blush champagne dresses, and I wore a dress very similar to yours when I was dress shopping that was my 2nd choice!)
