Can we see a pic? Maybe it isn’t as bad as you are focusing on?

Do you have a picture of you in it?

Perhaps, if we look at it, we can give you a different perspective.

Without seeing it, I just want to point out that it has to be loose enough for you to sit and dance in so a lot of times when women want their dresses tighter it really isn’t feasible (I work in a prom dress store and see it pretty often). However it is entirely possible that she really did leave your dress too loose and you could stand to have it taken in a litter more. If you are able to post some pictures that would be healful.

I think you look lovely in your gown; however, I do understand what you are saying. I think you could get a mermaid slip to put under your gown and it would give you more of an illusion of what you are looking for. I would also tie the sash a bit tighter than what you have it right now.

I’m not seeing what you’re seeing… i think it looks great and looks like it fits amazingly through the waist…  do you mean that you want it to come in more at the knee and flare out more like a trumpet?  im just not seeing what the problem is… quit looking at it for a few days and then try it on and see if you still see the same thing.

Oops, nevermind I see that you beat me to it. I think the dress looks great on you but if you want it to have more of a mermaid shape it would have to be taken in more. There is definitely room there to have another inch taken in on each side.

Why don’t you call around tomorrow and see if there is anywhere nearby who won’t charge a rush fee or has reasonable pricing if you don’t like the way it looks? Adding a slip may also help give you the shape you desire for less $$.

You look fantastic and your dress is gorgeous!

Does it have any effect if you tie the sash a little tighter? Is that where you are wanting it to be tighter? I think it looks really pretty on you though ๐Ÿ™‚
