I have to say, this dress is very similar to many I’ve seen, and I’m personally not crazy about it. I think there’s a time to be sexy, and that’s probably not when you’re promising to be with and support your fiance in sickness and in health. But, to each his own! You have your own theme and aesthetic.
I would recommend a nude liner in the front, maybe that attaches to the sides just before the lacing on the sides. I think lowering the back a bit and angling the line down might be really pretty as well.
Good luck and congratulations!

It’s much too sheer for my tastes but it would be pretty if it was lined. However, it’s your wedding and if you want to wear it then you should (provided you’re not having a church wedding since that is way to sheer for even the most progressive of churches).

It’s too risque for a wedding. But then again, I’m the kind of person that hates to see excessive bridal cleavage…save the show for another day!

@Sunnyinct: Just took some pics, holy crap I’ve gained weight over the past 3 months, guess being pregnant does that along with stupid food cravings grrr
I think It’s going to a seamstress to be adjusted in some way so it fits better lol I do however after trying it on again think it looks a lot less sheer on me compared to the model picture. Maybe I’m being delusional :-/

@Camgurl16: If you care what other people think, DO NOT WEAR THIS DRESS. If you only want to wear something that pleases you regardless of others, GO FOR IT!

@Camgurl16: To me it looks very sheer, especially when the flash lights up all the contours underneath. I think getting it lined with a nude material would be a very good idea if you want the look without the nudity and nip slip potential. Bear in mind that the bodice may shift throughout the day and an accidental peekaboo could be seriously embarrassing.
That being said, you’re the bride and you know what you and your family will be comfortable with better than anyone on here does. Your wedding, your choice. Just remember you will have to live with that choice (and re-live it every time you want to show someone else your wedding pictures)!

@Camgurl16: honestly it’s way too sheer!
Just remember you will have your wedding photos forever and will this be something you will regret? because I’d be so embarrassed to see my mother in a dress like that- and I’m sure my two sons would feel the same if it were me!

@Camgurl16: I just saw this dress on “Say yes to the dress” tv show today. Lol. I love the style and honestly, love the see threw of it. But for a family wedding, maybe not. It might make your grandparents uncomfortable. Lol

Camgurl16 I won’t talk about appropriateness or anything like that. You know your crowd better than others, for sure, and I would never preach “moral dressing” to anyone.
I actually was all on board with the dress with the model pic, but I was searching online for a larger pictures so I could see how ACTUALLY sheer it is in front. In your pictures, it is clear just how see-through it is.
I’m not sure if this is obvious to you, but all I can see is the contours of your breasts (like side-boob from the bottom). I actually think a bikini would cover up more of that area. Perhaps its because the pregnancy boobs are coming in?
You are beautiful, and I love the dress, but I would definitely add SOMETHING. I actually think it might look best to just have the breast area lined, like a PP posted. That way, the area where your breasts are would get a beautiful lift, and no one would have to be like “whoa! Underboob!” Sort of like a bandeau or something.
If you did do a nude panel, which might also look nice, keep in mind that that would cover up some of your tatoo, and therefore make the lining more noticeable?
You seem dead-set on wearing this. I would do some adjustments to make it more flattering, if not also appropriate, especially since, unfortunately, the pregnancy will NOT help the coverage.

@Camgurl16: I’m so sorry, but that dress is VERY sheer. We all know exactly what you look like naked. I know you love it and I don’t want to hurt your feelings, but it’s the truth. It’s a beautiful dress and if it just had a lining, even a sheer lining, it would be awesome.

@Camgurl16: I think the dress is lovely, and how appropriate it is really depends on your body type. If you are a really slender girl with small breasts, I’d say that the dress will give you enough coverage to be appropriate. If you are curvy, the lace covering the breast area may end up looking like pasties, and that would be trashy. It wouldn’t be appropriate for a church wedding either way. Want are the chances of having a wardrobe malfunction with this kind of dress? I’d hate to be walking around my reception flashing nipple and not realize it. I like the idea that pp have of lining the front. That would eliminate the secong guessing and give you the opportunity to really make the gown your own. Think about it, you could line it with any color you want!
ETA: I just saw the pics of you in the actual dress…..it looks like you are getting enough coverage, but it also looks like the odds of a wardrobe malfunction might be pretty good. I’d line the front. If you choose to go as is, be sure to invest in some double sided tape!

@Camgurl16: I think it definitely needs to be lined. Seeing the pictures of you in it, I have no idea where they’re gonna get material from to give you more wiggle room. The lace up sides are visible from the front and back. The only way to keep you from bursting out of the dress by lacing it tighter and having it still look like it’s the right size is lining it. The extra material will allow you to lace up the sides more and have them sit where they’re supposed to. That’s a LOT of skin showing right now, though. It’s a very sheer bodice.
To those saying it’s covering more than a bikini would, I’d rather wear the bikini top with the skirt. The corset just looks too too sexy. It may technically cover more skin, but it looks so much like lingerie that a bikini top would actually be classier.

Sorry, all I see is underboob and nipples. If that dress shifts downwards at all, it might pull your boobs down with it. Have you tried wearing the dress around the house for an hour or two? You could sit down, stand up, and walk around to see how the dress might behave on your wedding day.

It’s not my style, but it’s obviously yours. Ask yourself what you will regret more? Wearing it, or not wearing it? Lining it, or not lining it? I think you’ll have your answer.
