When I tried on my dress I fell in love with it! Yesterday I had my first alterations appointment and I feel like I made a horrible choice. I think my dress looks horrible on me! Hoping that after it’s taken in I will feel better about it. Has anyone regretted their dress and then fallen back in love with it after alterations were done? The first pic is the sample dress that I tried on and the other pics are when I picked up my dress.

I didn’t like my dress after the alterations to have it taken in at first, but then I realized I should’ve tried different shapewear. That made a huge difference for me. I think once it’s fitted more by the bust you’ll be much happier, the way the sample was fitted looks great on you.

Gotta be honest, this shape is not the most flattering for your body. Your natural waist is small, I would have gone with a natural waist ball gown or A-line instead of the drop waist.

I think that it looks much better since the alterations. Especially the neckline. What I would say is that there’s a lot going on and I’m not sure that the style is perfect for you. An another pp has said, an A-line might have suited you better.

Sorry but it doesn’t flatter your body shape

I’m really sporry but I feel the drop waist is bad for you, you have a gorgeous natural waist which an a-line dress would accentated and flatter.

Have you lost weight since you first tried it?? The most recent pics are a lot more flattering in the bust/natural waist/rib area. I agree with a pp that shape wear can do wonders if you’re feeling uncomfortable. Honestly? The only reason I think it looks worse in the new pics is because you can feel your sadness/disappointment in the new pics whereas you were glowing in the earlier ones. Try to remember what you loved about the dress and be confident in your choice!! That will shine through more than anything else. Love your dress and love yourself in it!

Thanks everyone for your honest opinions. The pics didn’t upload how they should have. The ivory one on the bottom is the sample dress. The ones on top are when I picked up my dress. I have lost weight since I ordered it and they ordered the dress way too big. I’m hoping once I put shapewear on and it is altered that I will feel better in it. If not I will just have to buy a dress off of the rack somewhere.
