I might be a bit uncomfortable with it, although the dress is gorgeous and so are you. What I might do is put a little piece of white eyelet with a border scallop upside down and gathered in there maybe with a piece of the pink ribbon running through the eyelet holes, like a sort of ruffle. You could also put a piece of stretchy netting with a pink applique on it or a piece of stretch lace in a v shape. One other alternative is to ruche/gather the material of the dress edge right at the bustline below the bust and between the two bust triangles. That would gather it up just slightly and make it pull together a tiny bit. Then you could put a border ruffle or trim on the outside of the triangles to give the extra width there when they get pulled inward. Whew! I hope some of that made sense.

It is a beautiful dress and the color is exquisite. It looks great on you, too. I might tweak it just a little, but you don't have to! You could also wear it over a lace cami. Love your dress!

Ok all I want to know is how did you hem the edging for the top and does it move at all.  I mad a dress on a wing it similar to this.  I took a rectangle of fabric (spadex like), folded it in half, draped it around my neck for length and width then took a second piece and wrapped it around me the same way.  I wen to the club and tried to dance in the thing any my boobs fell out!  It is funny now but it wasn't so funny then.  If I remember tonight I will post a picture of it so you can see what I mean.

Well, for wingining it, I am very impressed!  If you feel uncomfortable wearing it or afraid of the halter part shifting and being exposed, you can always buy some body tape.

Thanks for your great suggestions, and general support of me and my first dress!  I think I am going to try to work some sort of a removable middle piece.  Maybe like arrhythmia said, a little white eyelet ruffle that I can loosely attach for lunch with granny, then remove it and go out and get crazy with my friends  Grin

Thanks again to everyone for your nice comments and making me feel oh-so-much better about my sweet-yet-skimpy dress! 
i love whales.

I think you could just resew the triangles a bit closer together.. it would be cuter and more comfortable (mentally) Smiley

You could wear a tank top underneath it
Brown would be good
That's what I do when a top is too low

PS- ou have an odd tan line in the front

This is very, very nice. I wish my first adventure in clothing came out this good. Smiley

I would personally just wear a tank top underneath. And you can easily take off the tank top after lunch at Grandmas. Wink
