Too much cleavage?!

I personally think it would look better with illusion netting over it. It’s a lot of cleavage. The lace also seems thin, can a seamstress add a layer underneath so you won’t have any risk of anything showing through? 

You don’t want to be worrying about a boob popping out during your wedding day! Or feel uncomfortable at all. 


ETA: Some of this also depends on the venue and your family/guests. My grandmother would feel really uncomfortable seeing me wear something like this. As would a priest in a church wedding.

At a minimum, the top needs to be lined. Inserts move way too easily.

I would say this:

1. If you are second guessing the coverage, then there’s a reason you feel uncomfortable and should probably listen to that feeling. My concern for you would be that on your wedding day you may feel self conscious about it being too much and spending too much time worrying about that and watching were peoples’ eyes go than on your special day. No reason to make yourself paranoid or anxious if your gut is telling you now that its too exposure.

2. The dress looks sensational on you (maybe that should have been my #1), but I would agree with the suggestion of a piece of illusion fabric across the plunge to give it a little modesty (and ease your mind). I don’t think it is necessary to do an illusion across the entire chest area, you wanted that plunge for a reason (and it looks great) but I think a little illusion over the lower boob area would give you the reassurance you’re looking for.

3. Not sure your venue but if it is in a religious site, then I’d definitely say add the cover up. 

4. I see nipple, too. Sorry.

Late to the party but as long as ‘the girls’ are secure I say rock it!

It’s too much cleavage, IMO.  (And I’m far from being a prude).  

I think it will make at least some of your guests uncomfortable to see that much of your breasts on display.  Are any of your coworkers going to be at the wedding, for example?  Old family friends of your parents?  Save that sort of extreme plunge neckline for another occasion.  

And as others have pointed out, there is also some visible nipple.  

To quote my grandmother, “God wants to see how beautiful your heart is… but he doesn’t need to look down your dress to see it.”

Too much cleavage for me personally, but it’s whatever you’re comfortable with.

cupcakery13 :  Too much for me but no need to stress. I got a low cut dress and freaked when my size came in bc I’m short too so you could see too much. They made me a super nice modesty panel. You can ask for a lace panel that matches should be no problem. 

I would change it if you’re freaking out bc that means you’re not 100% comfortable and you want to be comfortable on your wedding day.

I’d line it just to hide nipples, but OMG bee you look AMAZING!

I think it would help if the top was also lined.  The V is way deep for my taste but if you love it that’s what matters. The grandparents may faint.

Def agree with other pp’s that you need to add a lining or something for your breats because yes, you can still see the nipple area. 


Other than that, I love your dress and do not think you’re showing too much. Your breasts are the perfect size to pull off that dress. Adding a belt or some other accessory would be beautiful too but I honestly don’t think you need to worry.

I don’t think you can change the amount of exposure without taking away from the lines of the dress. If you’re able and willing to look for something different, I would in all honesty go that route.

Way too much cleavage but I am not sure how to fix it. The first step is to line the front of the dress with white backing so it’s not see through. The second step is to bring the deep V in by at least an inch.

I also think you look incredible. I would probably add some illusion lining but I definitely don’t see the need for a new dress. You have an incredible figure – I wish I could pull off something like that!

cupcakery13 :  

Way too much plunge and see -through for me. You have a wonderful figure, but why show quite so much of it on your wedding day? I think a bit of illusion/lining would allay your very reasonable   concerns

[content moderated for violating TOS]. The dress seems to be sheer over both your nips and you worry about the cleavage? Which too is absurdly open anyway.
