You look great but I just wouldn’t want to hug my little nephew or my grandpa in that dress lol. I also dance a lot and would be worried about a wardrobe malfunction. You’re the one wearing it though!

I think you look incredible and I’m entirely jealous of your perfect cleav! haha You have to decide if its too much for you; will you be able to move, dance, hug, bend over without worrying about a nip slip? I love the suggestion of an illusion panel, you can just add a bit of sheer fabric over maybe half of the V without altering the look of the dress too terribly much! Just make sure those beauties are secure since another bee mentioned the lace may stretch throughout the day!

cupcakery13 :  First of all, you look amazing.

Second – the only way too show “too much” cleavage is to show more than you’re personally comfortable showing. Would this neckline be too much for me? Yes, definitely. But that shouldn’t mean squat to you.

Lastly – if you’re having any doubts, I’d recommend having a modestly panel of some sort sewn into the deep part of the V. You don’t want to feel self-conscious on your wedding day, and I’ve never heard of someone looking back and saying, “I wish my dress showed more skin.” You look great, so I’m sure you could add some fabric to the neckline while maintaining a certain boobylicious factor 🙂

I love this style dress on someone with smaller breasts, it looks very chic. It gets dicey with bigger boobs, due to cleavage and you have the cherry (pardon the pun) of nipple reveal. At least one of these issues should be addressed because together it’s too much, unless you’re getting married in LA or similar.

I would put in a removable panel of the lace fabric between the deep v and behind to line the cups as the mesh isn’t getting it. This way you can take some pictures with it in full sexy mode but walk down the aisle and hug people without worries. 

ETA, sorry cross posted, but you asked about lace and that was my suggestion, so yes!

Here’s my 2 cents: Yes, too much boob, and personally I think it is too much see through lace all over. I would add more lined-lace in the front, covering more boob through your stomach. *Personally*, I think the dress becomes less sexy when too much skin shows. A see through back looks much more dramatic when the front isn’t see through, too. A see through front, see through back, lots of cleavage and possible nip slip is too much (in my opinion) and just doesn’t look right. 

You know the ‘rule’ with regular dressing about either showing a lot of leg, a lot of boob, a lot of back, etc but not all at once? I think it kinda applies with wedding dresses, too. Pick a couple dramatic places to show skin but then add more coverage in other areas.

I think the actual cleavage part is really fine as long as you’re okay with it and it’s not in a church.

The nipples or inserts or whatever showing through the lace….not okay IMO. If the dress was lined behind the lace with a solid nude or something at least, I think that would be better. And maybe they could change the illusion to more of an off-white transparent instead of the see-through nude color if you’re concerned with the cleavage part?

I think the cleavage is okay, but the fabric circles covering your nipples are not attractive or flattering in my opinion.  I think getting the top lined would make the whole thing prettier, and also sexier.  Sometimes sex appeal is more about what’s suggested than what’s shown.

That said, you have a banging body and if you like the dress as is then wear it as is!

Way too much cleavage.  I wouldn’t be comfortable wearing that in front of friends and family.

Oh good, since it’s already designed to have the illusion neckline I would see if you can add one that’s more obvious and maybe more detailed. Then just throw on some pasties and you’re good to go. 

You’ve got GREAT boobs – but ironically that’s part of the issue. I find deep V’s (without illusion neckline) usually work best on people that are insignificantly endowed.

cupcakery13 :  GIRL, ya body is bangin’! Good for you. It’s a lot of cleav, but that’s not a bad thing. Clearly you’ve got the body to back up this kind of dress. I say you rock it.

I am personally not a fan of bare deep/ wide cleavage or side boobs in a wedding dress. Summer dresses or cocktail dresses sure, go for it, but there is something about a wedding dress….

I agree with cabowedding2019 about the insert.

I think it’s too much for a wedding. Could you add sheer material to it like other ppl mentioned?
