Top Heavy

I'm trying to get on the ball with making this dress but I can't seen to decide on which top to go with.....I found a beautiful lace bodice I loved but to make my forum topic a true double entendre, I am a bit too top heavy for it.  I am also in love with this second photo on the beautiful Lupita in this blue Gucci number.  What do you think about them?  If it helps any I want my gown to have a mermaid silhouette (:

They're both gorgeous, but I think I would go with a more modest version of the top one for a top-heavy bride. As-is it would be a bit obscene almost...attention-grabbing for sure, but not necessarily in the way you want, you know? And the second one has too much going on right above what I'm assuming is considerable cleavage. It's perfect for a smaller chested woman, but I think it would compete with the cleavage on a larger chested woman.

That's just my opinion, anyway, and it may be totally wrong!  :)

 And by more modest, I don't mean something prudish or boring...just not such a deep plunge at the neckline. Maybe 2-3 inches higher than it is.

 I just don't know if tape REALLY works for those of us that are at a higher risk of looking pendulous....LOL

As far as the blue goes I don't even know if I would want it to look exacly the same as in the photograph.  Maybe a happy medium could be to have the floral appliue be the beaded look from the first photo...could you picture how that would look?

I like the idea of combining the 2. Love the applica of the first one, but the neckline of the other.

 Hmmm ... I'm curious.  But the pictures aren't rendering for some reason.
