@bballou:  i think it looks beautiful! But if you are self conscious I’m sure they could add something in the middle.

Honestly, I think you look stunning and the cleavage doesn’t bother me at all!

@bballou: have you ordered the dress yet?  Can you go up a size to make sure the bust is covered but you still have the same shape?  You can take it in in other places- I too have the same bust size- haven’t gotten the dress yet, but making sure the bust is fit correctly is a closet nightmare of mine- probably why I have been avoiding this myself…

The dress itself is beautiful and the shape is perfect on you (minus maybe being a little low for the girls).  

I think adding a modesty panel or changing the bustline will seriously change the overall look of the dress.  Try going up a size- once you get to dancing and moving around, you don’t want to look back and see that things were falling out or you felt like you were constantly covering up/ readjusting.  Let me know how this works for you!

I agree with the “too much cleavage” crowd.

It looks fine to me, to get a good idea you would have to stand back and have someone take the pic because the first one doesnt seem to much the second one is a close up so of course it appears more, but I think you will be fine love the dress

I too have cleavage issues on all the dresses I’ve tried! From the research I’ve done, it is VERY HARD to change a dress from sweetheart to straight across (much easier the other way around). However, maybe you can consider adding an extra line of fabric to the top of the cups kind of like as a trim, to cover a bit more? I’m considering doing this… especially as I think I’ll be purchasing my dress online (preowned) and won’t have ever tried it on!!!

I feel for you though ๐Ÿ™ I’m a 28GG-H… it makes life kinda hard when shopping for clothes…

@bballou:  You look great. I think you have a tasteful amount of cleavage showing. I wouldn’t change anything.

Here’s a picture of what I kind of mean with ‘adding fabric’. This dress was designed with that extra ‘trim’ across the top but maybe you could make it work on yours? 

It wouldn’t cover EVERYTHING but could give you just that little bit more coverage to make you feel more comfortable!

A different kind of bra can make all the difference in how that fits. I tried on my dress at my fitting with two different types of bras and it was like night and day (I have lost weight so my original didn’t fit and they brought me smaller sizes in 2 kinds). I am a 32G (heh), but with my weight loss my boobs are kind of floppy, so I’m jealous that you can go braless and get cups sewn in ๐Ÿ˜‰ Good luck!

PS – you look AMAZING, that dress is goooooooooorgeous! VIVA LA BOOBIES!
