It seems a lot of people are willing to pay extra to have their dress converted into a sweetheart. Sweethearts seem to be royalty of bridal necklines, For all those who chose sweethearts, do you generally like sweetheart dresses and tops, or is it just because its the neckline of your wedding dress.

I haven’t had any sweetheart necklines in any of my dresses. My 1950’s dresses are halter type. I’d feel like my girls would be out too much in a sweetheart neckline.

I never liked sweetheart necklines until I started to try on wedding dresses. The dress I bought doesn’t have a true sweetheart but I have to admit my favorite dresses were all sweetheart necklines.

I think most people like the sweetheart because it has a similar feel of the strapless but generally doesn’t give you the back roll or under arm roll. Something about the shape of it I guess 🙂

I like not looking like I have the “uni-boob” that a straight strapless dress can give you. Plus, I think sweetheart dresses are uber-feminine.
But this is coming from someone who has never wore a sweetheart neckline ever. But I plan on doing so for my wedding.

I actually did not want a sweetheart AT ALL! For some reason I just didn’t like them when I started…but my dress is a sweetheat lol. It has soft organza around it to not make it so bad and I just happened to love the overall dress.

I like them only on long, formal dresses. It’s too dramatic and too revealing for everyday clothes.

Like june42011, I hated sweetheart necklines when I first went dress shopping and didn’t want to try anything in that style! Fortunately I was still given some to try on and when I had dress regret after buying my first dress I found a photo of me in a sweetheart neckline and actually bought that dress instead!

I think sweetheart necklines look better on tall woman. I think they make short women look shorter.
My dress was a sweetheart neckline, but I’m only 5 feet tall. I thought it drew the eye down too much, so I added some lace and made it a straight neckline, which I liked much better. I did the beading on the lace I added myself, and I think it blended in well with the beading that was in the middle of the sweetheart neckline. You can see the detail here.

I am not a dress person, I have one from BEBE and it has a sweetheart neckline, thios is how I got the idea for my wedding dress, I realized it looks softer and sexier than just a straight strapless.

I think that its a strapless thing. I don’t really wear any tops that are straight across the top because of the ‘uniboob’ thing… just seems unflattering (esp bc i have big boobs). All the tops I wear are a lower scoop or v-neck, and sweetheart is kind of the strapless version of that.

i modified mine into a sweetheart because it was much more flattering on me. i’m not very big chested, and the standard strapless made me look even smaller up there. so the sweetheart helped add some well needed curves and dimension.
