    I don’t know how much it costs to have it altered to a sweetheart neckline, but if it is a manageable cost, I would have it modified.  I think sweetheart necklines are so much more flattering, and if it is what you prefer and you can fit the alteration in your budget, I say go for it.

    Woo I love this Watters dress.

    I voted no… I am not a fan of altering the design. But, without actually seeing you in it I guess I can’t tell if it would actually look better with a sweetheart neckline or not…

    I have a Anne Barge dress with the same neckline as your Watters and I actually think it’s prettier than sweetheart most brides love, but, I have small chest!!!

    Not a design expert here, but I like the unaltered neckline. It seems to be a difference of “elegant” vs “trendy”. Both ways are beautiful, it’s a seriously gorgeous dress, but I think they different necklines will just lend a different look. You said that the original neckline isn’t flattering to you, so you should change it. 🙂
    Do you have pictures of yourself in it?

    I have a monique lhuillier and had the neckline altered to a sweetheart as well.  However mine had some complications since it was already too low and making it a sweetheart made it lower.  However my seamstress did some awesome magic and got the exact same lace to make it an extended sweetheart.  If you think youll love your dress more, go for it (I certainly did)  Just check how they can pull it out.

    I love sweethearts, but I would go for a much gentler line than the one you’ve suggested here. I think a subtler sweetheart is both super figure flattering and much more elegant.

    Really pretty dress, btw!
