You can always add a modesty panel to the dress. You could have a piece of fabric added straight across, or have to follow the neckline to make it come up higher. Absolutely stunning dress! Alterations can work wonders!

I would see how things go with your alterations. My friend who was married last July had a similar cut to her dress and is a full B. She didn’t need to add anything and it didn’t look inappropriate. She did have to lift her top up throughout the night to make sure it didn’t get to that point though haha

Unless you are having a very conservative ceremony I think you will be just fine 🙂

I was the EXACT same way, I refused to try on anymore sweethearts because it made my girls look waaay bigger than they are and I just looked weird! When I did try some on though the lady always put a peice of lace to cover and it really didn’t look that bad at all. I actually ended up with a sweetheart but it has soft organza around it so it covers more. I think there are always options available for what your after.

Im a small B and I have a deeper sweetheart. I actually think it is more flattering because it shows off my curves more but yet it is not inappropriate. I dont have a picture of it as the dress is with the alterations woman but next time I go for a fitting I can take a picture so you can see?

I definitely think it will be much better when it fits. The cups are probably spaced a little farther on the 12 to keep the overall proportion of the dress, I would imagine. Maybe someone else would know better. I think you should go for it and see how you like it when it fits. If you’re still not comfortable with the cleavage, I think adding a little panel or even adding a ruffle around the whole top (like on Melissa Sweet Dora but in a matching fabric) would be a great way to have the dress you love while still feeling comfortable!

Mine has what the maker calls a “modified” sweetheart. I think it’s what you describe (has the look of a sweetheart, but more modest). I’m barely a B cup and it loks just fine.
