help! Is this too nippleicious?

Hi all,
Ok so I've been working on this bra for a while. Although I'm a fan of camp & the occassional nipple stone, that was not the look I was going for here. Are the nipples too prominant? The gems are not exactly on the nipple, but close. They do have a weave of mustard/gold tone thread over the surface of the central stones to secure them, I think this cuts down on flash & prominance.....sorry the pics are not the best I have more on the camera which needs a battery recharge. feedback is much appreciated.

Also I have to give kudos to akai silks for the silk in the background of the green/yellow pic & Dar for her fabulous sea monster veil (in the background in the pic with mottled sea-tones )!

    personally, I think it's fine. I'm not sure if you've seen alot of tribal bras but quite a few I've seen are very "niple prominent" with kuchi pendants or whatnot. But then again, it also depends on what sort of crowd you are dancing for I guess. If you're not comfortable wearing it in certain places, don't.

    I think it looks great - nothing like I saw one recently that had a few red, very prominent, protruding beads where the the nipples are linked to other beading on the bra - it looked like a very red nipple that was pierced!

    Have you seen some of the Indian Cholis or Tribal Choli/Bras.? I really think it's fine. I don't think that is too nippleicious at all haha! I think it's very stunning I don't think anyone should have a problem with it at all unless you know they are just that uptight! I think it's fine. Trust me I've seen waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more nippleicious stuff than this! I think you are good to go!

    Thanks everyone, for your kind responses !
    I guess I just got carried away with worry after reading those "Do & Don't " lists of costuming. When you are that far into a beadwork design, it is darnn near impossible to change direction. It is good to get feedback to let me know the design is not flawed, what a relief ! Thank you again for your feedback & compliments.

      I don't think it is tooooo nippleicious but if it were my design I think I'd swap the white nipple stone for a light green or dark blue one similar to the beads around it. It would feel like more of a part of the pattern that way.
