What accessories with a V back dress?

Recommended Posts

Hi, my dress has lace shoulders and, more importantly, a low V back. I would like advice on accessories. Click to see the dress:

1. Do you like the idea of wearing a back necklace with the dress, or do you think that would make it too "busy"?

 

2. What style of veil do you think would work best with such a dress? Birdcage? Cathedral? Or maybe no veil at all?

 

3. Sorry to be personal but I am really fretting about the bra issue! The dress shop told me to shop for a bustier online but I have had difficulty finding one that is low enough in the back!! This is the lowest one I have found so far: low backed bustier

I don't know if it's low enough for what I need. What do you think? If not can you suggest anyplace to look? I am a D cup and need to wear a bra, unfortunately.

 

 

Please do not feel a need to answer all three. If you can just answer any of them I would be grateful.

Gorgeous dress!!! I personally wouldn't add a necklace, the back of the dress is very dramatic and I think it will take away from it.

In regards to the bra maybe the dress store can sew bra cups into the dress. That's what I am doing with mine so I don't have to worry about a bra. I'm a D cup too so I totally understand the need to have something. Sometimes having big boobs can be a curse...lol!!!

The dress is beautiful. I don't think you need a back necklace especially if you where a veil. I'm not sure which would look best with the dress...I'm a visual person. But if I had to guess I would go with the birdcage veil.

 

Best wishes!!

First off, GORGEOUS dress! So unique. I never thought of trying this kind of style, but am having serious dress envy !

My opinion is a back necklace can look beautiful and really "make" your look, but with your dress being such a statement already, if you do go for this look, do not wear a veil and choose a simpler style necklace.

Saw this one on a photographer's site. Don't know who makes it though.

I love the dress and the back. I personally wouldn't wear a back necklace. maybe sew in cups in the dress or wear those ones that stick on-don't know if they work or not. Not sure about a veil as I am not fond of them for our beach wedding. Good Luck!

Thanks. I really wish I could do the bra cups but the woman at the shop said that I need the support of a bustier or bra (D cup chest).

I would do some simple earrings, no necklace. The dress is very elegant and you dont wont to take away from the dress. I would do a birdcage veil. As the other posters stated suggest that they sew in bra cups directly onto your dress.

LOVE your dress! So darn beautiful!

 

IMO the back jewlery would take away from how beautiful this dress really is. As for the bra, I would look for the ones that you can be sewn into the dress for lift and support. I have big girls too and they work well for me every time. If you want a veil I would look for a finger tipth length with lace along the edge to match the dress... gorgous!
