I too have found a dress I like and my mom thinks it’s too revealing. As I look back at my pics I think mine is as well. I am going to go back to the dress shop and talk to thm about options if I get the dress how I can add more coverage. I haven’;t ordered the dress so the consultant mentioned I could order a few sizes too big to accomidate the bust area.

To be honest I do notice your bust area when i look at the dress but it’s not too over the top but it is noticable. Is the back of the dress corset could it be loosened up a bit to help? I agree that adding additional fabric might make it too busy unless they can order you that same fabric as the lining that’s already there. Maybe the seamstress can add another row of that same fabric? Just a thought

the dress you picked is beautiful the rouching lays perfectly but in all honesty, the first thing i noticed on the dress is the neckline and your ladies…is the back a corset? if you purchased the dress already i would suggest to go to a seamstress who only does wedding gowns…nothing else…they know the best and have usually been in the business for quite some time and have the best ideas. maybe you could add another row of the beading but in a color closer to your bridesmaids dresses above the neckline row of beading that is there now, or maybe you could run either a sheer material or a lace material along the top of the neckline an inch or more so that it has the illusion of covering you up a little bit more if that is your concern

I would wait on the top alterations till after you tighten up the body of the dress cause that too may make the dress lay differently on your body

Best of luck future Mrs. Maxx Smile

I love your dress!  If trying to fix it with the corset back does not work, I would go back to the dress shop and ask if they have any satin that they could use to add to the top edge of the neckline to show you what it would look like. Then order some fabric from the company who makes the dress if you like it.  You shouldn’t have to lose the sweetheart neckline…to be specific…maybe about 1/2″ to 1″ of satin right along the top edge. You could have them rouch it just like below the beading.  It would not add any more beading or “busyness” to the top.  Just another idea for you.
