    Alright, so I found a dress I absolutely love (sorry, not online so no pics), but it's a v-cut, and I'm a D-cup, so I'm a little shy on pulling the trigger and showing off the goods on the wedding day! It's not so bad that there's danger of a nip-slip or anything like that, but it's definite cleavage, and I'm worried that it might be tacky for a wedding day!

    What do you think? Is it more acceptable because we're getting married on the beach? Has anyone gone with some cleavage and received flack from anyone?

    I'll prolly still buy it anyway because I adore it, I just need a little reassurance

      Do you have pics? I had a deep v-neck, but I am barely a b, so not the same thing. I think that a v-neck doesn't make it bad, but it's how it fits you, so I can't say for sure either way.

      Also, if you love the dress but are uncomfortable with the v being so deep, you ould always have the seamstress place a small piece of lace at the bottom of the v. A quick fix that doesn't ruin the dress.

        I didnt even think of maybe adding a piece of lace, thats a great idea!
        I'm not exactly sure how it will fit, especially after the straps have been shortened, because the sample was two sizes too small. And sadly, the bridal shop was very adamant about no pictures, and I haven't been able to find the dress anywhere else in town
        I suppose when it comes down to it and if I'm uncomfortable, I could always add the extra fabric... thanks for the suggestion!

          I think it will be fine as long as you are not busting out of the top. I am a DD and pretty much have cleavage in anything. I do not think a little cleavage will look tacky.

            I think it will depend on what bra/support you wear underneath. If you have something really pumping you up it might not be that appropriate, but if it's just natural cleavage I think it will look OK. I definitely think we need to see before we can offer our true opinions

              I agree... My dress is super sexy with a very deep V and very open back down to my tailbone. It all depends on the fit IMHO. I am a B cup maybe a small C in some things.

              Also, see how it is once you have it in your size ... Like Carly said, adding a little strip of lace or something underneath should be an easy fix.

              Let's see the pics!!! (Just bc I love pics!)

                It's your wedding, wear what makes you happy and feel beautiful. When you get the dress fitted, see how you feel in it. if you look at yourself and think you look amazing, then keep it the way it is. If you think it's too much cleavage then add the lace like Carly said.

                  I am w/ Des we both are DD so we are used to a little cleavage all the time! I think really this depends on how you feel about your boobs. Do you like them? And, on your wedding day are you only going to think about how your boobs look or where they are or how much cleavage? If so then I'd go w/ a different dress.

                    D girl here *DING* I feel like I should ring a bell after I say that

                    I too was concerned about this, there are so many awesome beachy type dresses out there but the cleavage is always an issue for me, well and I can't forget my mom who is always quick to point out the boobage factor.

                    I think it really depends on whether you're comfortable with what shows. Do you normally wear tops that show cleavage? If so, then go for it. But definitely don't wear something with a plunging neckline if you're not used to it otherwise you'll likely be overly conscious of it all day and your boobs should be the last thing you're thinking about on one of the most fabulous days of your life! Otherwise I think Carly's suggestion with the added piece would work well.

                    For me -- my concern was to get something to hike these girls up, so they're nice and high and not droopy, lol. Motherhood was not kind

                      LOL not so kind to me either!!! I don't care for the plunge cause i'm not real fond of my big mamas! They need a lift before I'm good! I ended up getting a sweetheart neckline, very complimenting on big busts!
