So my wedding is 7 weeks away and after having dress regret a few months ago I finally found my new dress. It is Sophia Tolli “Madigan”.
So I am only 5’3 and my new dress is made for a super model that is like 5’11 (I swear this dress is super long). Anyway, I have to take it in the seamstress to alter and make it shorter. After trying on the dress at home, I couldn’t help but feel it was missing something.
So last night, I was looking at the dress trying to figure out how can I bustle it then I bubbled the back and love that kind of busstle then said to myself- “self, this dress may look even more amazing with a full skirt bubble hem”. Of course, I slept on it and woke up this moring and looked up a bubble hem and I love it even more.
What do you think? Here are a few pictures. I also found a dress kind of like mines with a bubble hem and it just add’s an extra glam to the dress. Keep in mind, I alreay have to alter this dress like 4 inches shorter so why not bubble it.
Here is my dress on a model
So here is the dress on a hanger at home as is
Don’t know if you can see a difference but here is a pic of dress on hanger with a ghetto self pinning bubble hem
Now here is a similar style dresses with bubble hem. I think I am in love
What do you think? Bubble Hem or not?

I love bubble hems, and I think since a. you already have so much altering you need to do in the length and b. since the bottom is fairly plain (not in a bad way, just in a not-too-much-going-on way), I think the bubble hem would look good with it: if there was really intricate beading or ruffles or something at the bottom I would say no way to the bubble hem, but if you can find a seamstress to do it and do it well then I say absolutely! 😀

@RapunzelRapunzel: Thanks, I totally agree. The dress’ attention is at the top which is great but the bottom is just so plain (to me). I will be taking it to my seamstress next weekend for her to work her magic (wether I shorter naturally or with a bubble hem). I was wanted to hear what you guys thought.

When I first tried on my dress, I was pretty “meh” about it, but then one of my bridesmaids adjusted the hem for my height, and bubbled it doing so, and I loved it! It pretty much sold me on the dress.

I’m not a huge fan of bubble hems but I really think it would look great on your dress! I say do it especially since you have to change it anyway

Noooo! No bubble hem. It’s really going to date, just like 80’s shoulder pads. I agree it looks nice now, but in future photos? It will look dated.

I voted no to the bubble hem. However, the style of your dress gives the bubble hem some potential.

I am not a fan at all of bubble hem dresses, it’s mostly party dresses I have seen this style used. But I think your dress would look amazing with it.

Thanks everyone, I have a great deal of decision to make.

I wouldn’t, it messes up the clean lines of your dress.
