I don’t think you look pregnant, I think the dress looks like it needs to be tailored more.  It looks like it could cinch at your waist more and give you a more defined waist.

Honestly, it just looks like it’s too big on you, IMO.

I think it looks lovely on you personally! We are our own worst critics, your FI will think you are the most beautiful woman in the world! I think once you have your petticoat, shoes, accessories, hair, makeup and can see the whole package you will feel better about it! Congratulations on your wedding, I’m sure it will be a perfect day!

LadyMoriarty:   When I scrolled down to see the photos I was stunned – I think the dress is beautiful and looks lovely on you.   I love the tea length on you.  I hope you will take a second look and see how wonderful it is!!  *HUGS*

I think it looks too big- have you had it altered?

LadyMoriarty:  did you get any alterations done? I got mine custom-made from DC as well & was nearly in tears when I tried it on it fit so bad, but a few trips to the alterationist & it fit a zillion times better. It’s a little late now, but maybe you could rush into one and ask what’s the best they can do given the time frame and your budget. You might be surprised! Also, my dress looked way better with the petti than without too- helped give it more of a defined shape. I ended up needing mine taken in the bust, waist, sleeves adjusted to fit more than once, shortened to knee-length (didnt make me look as short/squat), and hemmed….

LadyMoriarty:  I think it’s beautiful!! The petticoat will make a big difference, but it does look a little big, it doesnt really “hug” you much in the top which is what makes a dress that shape look so nice. I’d call around to tailors and see if anyone can help you. I’m sure a few alterations will make you feel 100% better!

LadyMoriarty:  I think you should take it to a tailor and get an in person opinion. They might also suggest altering the length slightly and show you what that would look like.

I think it’s beautiful and so are you! I’m also plus sized and wearing a tea length dress and the poof outwards at the waist makes so much difference too. It needs a bit of tailoring, cinching and the underskirt like the PPs said 🙂 and you’ll be stunning and he’ll definitely think so!

But you must try and find a good tailor and not be embarrassed. Why should you care what they think and stop you having your perfect dress? Plus you really don’t look that big at all! Trust me, it won’t be as bad as you think 🙂 x

I think if you lose the bow and have it taken in more at the waist, it will be perfect. I’m not sure how a colored petticoat will look, but the dress is a great length and looks well made! Find a tailor and let them work their magic.

LadyMoriarty:  I think it looks lovely on you. The crinoline underneath will likely balance everything out better. I did find this picture of a similar dress online which has a wider sash around the waist. It might help define your waist a bit better than the thin bow. Just a thought.

I love your dress and think you look great!! I agree with a pp that it could be tailored more at the waist. A thicker belt may also do the trick to help things look a little more cinched in. Sounds counter intuitive, but I found that really made a difference vs thinner belt styles like yours.
