Okay when i had my first fitting i didn’t think the dress hit me at the waist so they added more lace and we fitted it to sit lower. Do you think it is sitting too low? Should i wear it higher like in the fist picture or at a happy medium between the two pictures?
From pictures I have seen of this dress on models it is suppose to sit low.. but it feels too low compared to what i am used to! Oh and since the 2nd picture it has been taken in on the sides.

It does look dangerously low in the second pic, to be honest. Lovely dress, though.

Personally, I think it is a little low. I would see if they could change out the middle fabric and make it wider/longer, so you would have what might be a better fit. Also, maybe a different undergarment would work. If it was me, I would be afraid to move with the way it is now because I would be worried about falling out.

The dress is absolutely gorgeous!
However, I agree that it is sitting a little low– you don’t want anything falling out…
I’ve seen a video online of a bride doing her bouquet toss in her strapless wedding gown, and when she raised her arms, her boobs popped out!

Your dress is very pretty! And I don’t think it’s supposed to hit at your natural waist, is it? It looks more like an empire waist to me. I agree it should be pulled up higher… you don’t want any wardrobe malfunctions on your wedding day! 🙂

i think it will look lots better once taken in, it looks like it’s only just staying up there, but once taken in would look better.
Could you have it even a couple cm higher? or with thin straps
Definately looks better in the second picture, the first one makes you look slightly pregnant!

@foxi lol that is what i thought too! And thanks.. It has been taken in since the 2nd picture so it is more snug bit i do think ill raise it a bit.
@JenniMichele that is mortifying!!
Thanks for the input everyone!

IMO, I don’t think it looks too low. I don’t look at it and think, hmm cleavage much. I think it looks great, but again JMO. Very pretty dress in general though!

From the angel it’s taken at, it DOES look a little too low… but no worse than other’s I’ve seen on celebs. However, an inch up wouldn’t hurt and would nix all worries about “popping out”.
lovely gown, btw!!!

I think it looks like it fits better in the first pic.

That dress is so very pretty! But as someone who is about the same size as you, I can just about feel how that dress would seem on me as it is in the second pic, and it definitely seems too low. It’s not a cleavage problem–it’s just a general sitting-too-low-might-slide-down-and-expose-boobs-problem. If you can wear it higher up, it’ll look perfect. Screw the pics…real, un-photoshopped humans always look different in wedding dresses than the models do in the promotional images. You aren’t going to be standing in one place in some unnatural pose all day on your wedding day, you’re actually going to be wearing the dress, walking in it, and probably even dancing in it. Wear it the way it looks and feels best on you.

I think the first pic looks better – I think it is supposed to be sitting slightly above your waist. I think that silhouette is more unusual and stylish than bringing it down to your natural waist. It’s a tough shape to pull off, which is why you don’t see many brides wearing it, but you’ve got such a lovely figure that it works really well.
Having it that inch or so higher, for me, makes it look like a very high-end couture gown, while pulling the dress down to your waist reduces the impact a little, IMO. (and I seem to recall that it is a pretty high end gown, from your earlier posts, which leads me to believe that it’s been designed that way on purpose)

I agree with the others that it looks a bit too low in the 2nd pic! What a stunning dress!

Yeah, it looks like an empire waist dress. The first pic looks more comfortable/better.
