Cleavage on your wedding day??

Recommended Posts

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 wink.gif

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 sad.gif

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 wink.gif

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!)blush2.gif

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 rolleyes.gif

 

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! humble.gif 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 blush2.gif

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!

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
