I like the idea of adding lace as they mentioned earlier, could add some more pizzaz to it Smiley

I like the lace idea on top too.  It's hard to tell without a pic of it on you though.   Wink

The problem I was thinking with lace is that it's pretty seethrough, so I'm still gonna have a lot of cleavage, which is why I was heading towards tulle. I couldn't get a pic of me that didn't look like I was a hippo (I was having a fat/bad hair day (which is why I was treating my self to new clothes)) BUT Ill try again tomorrow for a pic of it on Smiley

Lace that follows the neckline (in a V) or straight across? argh decisions decisions.

I also like the black lace suggestion. And if you're worried about the lace being see-thru, you can always use multiple layers - and even stagger them to get a slight ruffly look. That could work either with a V or straight across.

*Oh, and smashing pumpkins are probably my most fave band of all time. And that heart logo (which is "old school") is tattooed on each of my ankles. memories.....

You could always use a more dense lace..I've seen lace that's barely see-through.

[personally, I think there's some times when you just gotta show the clevage and I'd say let it go, but that's just me]

Tule would be an awesome idea. I have been contemplating attatching it to another shirt, but it's be awesome with this one. Did you sew it straight to your dress? I've never sewn tulle so I'm a tad nervous. Is it itchy? Smiley
I just sewed it along the seam along the neckline, but on the inside (after gathering it of course). Then I sewed some wide-ish bias tape along that seam, and the tulle didn't bother me. It is still is slightly see through. (does that answer make sense?)
I've seen in the ribbon/lace section of Joann some already made ruffles which are not see-through. And it looks sort of like bias tape across the bottom, so you can slip it on the edge and sew it across. Or you can improvise something similar to that, and that would eliminate the itch factor.
I understand the C-cup+ bias, if a B cup shows some cleavage, it's ok, but when big jugs are showing it looks trashy. Bah!

Thanks for all the advice/nice comments guys. I'm gonna head on down to the fabric shop and see if theres any nice lace. If there's nothing I HAVE to have, I might try tulle since I was considering trying it before I even made this top.

Thanks for all your help, it's been great Smiley Yeah, DDs on a slim (ish) frame tends to look trashy if you let your boobs out, but frumpy if you covre them up. I'll never win. Another problem is that I'm reasonably short so when I wear a low cut top EVERYONE gets a look (I only just realised this the other day when everyone was commenting on how low my top was and I thought it was fine, but I realised I'm looking at me straight on, whilst everyone else is taller and looking down :S
