I went dress shopping, not at the place i really wanted to. The place I went i legit had 3 options so i picked one. I, at the time and still now hate the top of my dress. I like the bottom as its not to much and has pockets 😊 What do you all think I could do to the top? I wanted bling or lace but didnt get either. Everyone said if I can find a seamstress thats good enough they can fix the top Dress help 1or replace it with different top all together?



I bought the belt and tiara but not veil!

    If you are wanting lace or bling on the top, you could always get a wedding dress topper. I know BHLDN carries them on their website

    You could also get some appliqués and have it sewn on

    I personally have a bunch of real crystals I could glue on. But i just hate the top! Like its way to high, like was thinking V-neck or tube top maybe
    Or buy a corset top and take the top off thats there. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️


    When I bought this dress I thought I could return it but I cant as its all sales are final. So im either stuck fixing the top or selling it out right.

    Ask a seamstress for ideas! They do magic.

    At a minimum, changing the top from a bateau to a scoop or V-neck should help! Putting a layer of lace over could be really pretty with the simple elegance of the skirt. Or adding sparkle. But I’d ask for her recommendations (and costs).


    Love the color & fabric of your dress. And it’s not too simple if you don’t want to change it. 😊

    Thank you this really means alot. 😊 As i was thinking it was to simply or "safe". But yes something alittle different to the top, if it dont cost a arm and a leg lol would look very elegant.

    Gorgeous! I think that a really good seamstress would be able to make the neckline a deep v, then add lace to the center, and you could frame the neckline with crystals.

    That would look beautiful!! I actually tried a dress on like that at a different shop, but it was like 1,600. Way over my budget so didnt buy anything from them. Then found this beauty, but just dont care for the top part. I will be calling seamstress shortly but probably have to wait til the "lock down" in my state is lifted. 🤷‍♀️

    The top doesn’t fit right. If you like the neckline, have the dress altered accordingly. I think it would look better with some sort of V . Because of the beautiful simple classy design, you may want to keep the v with no embellishment.

    Hmmm yeah, I would of course consult a seamstress as stated in other comments, but maybe if they could do a scoop neckline, make the straps thinner and fit better, add some crystals to the bodice. Idk of lace appliqués would go well with that material and style. Maybe cinch in the waist with a corset back or just take it in. The overlay too could be interesting as another option to avoid alterations to the top. But I think it could be saved.

    Thank you hun!! Yes the top does not fit right. And a simply v with less straps would be alright also. 😊

    I agree with you ! I think doing a v neck and adding some bling will do the dress some justice and make it more to fit your desires (:

    I think a seamstress could definitely make the neckline more flattering. Maybe more into a U-shape than a V.

    As other comments said - your seamstress will/should be able to change the neckline for you - it isn’t too much work esp since there isn’t any details on the top itself

    I agree with what mostly everyone else is saying. Have a good seamstress make it into a vneck or what ever style you were thinking and then have her add appliqué over the top. I think i've seen some really pretty ones on Etsy. 😊
