@victorianghost:  I think the dress is lovely on you. As far as feeling like you look flatchested, you could always go with a strapless padded bra or see if a seamstress can put in cups.

It really is a beautiful dress and I think once your hair is done/shoes on/jewelery on it’ll really complete the package.

Does the dress have side seams? Ask a seamstress to take a look. Honestly it doesn’t look that big though…you still have a lovely shape.

I think it’s lovely, and because of the style, IMPO it doesn’t look too big at all; if it were fitted that would be different, but it’s all flowy. I also don’t think you look flat-chested; you can see the curve of your bust quite clearly. However, if it’s your chest that’s bothering you, what about a padded bra? Personally I don’t think you need it, and would worry you’d look a bit ‘busty’ if you were more padded out; and IMPO that style of dress suits a slimmer figure. But, that’s just me!

But yeah, you look lovely 🙂

I think you look spohisticated, romantic and pretty. I really like it! I feel your figure is a good match to this style dress.

Don’t take this the wrong way, but in the chest, you are small boned. But listen…that’s ok!! All of our bodies are ok!! I am a DD and there are times I’ve wished I could have your figure because it seems so easy. But I decided to love and accept my breasts and I get compliments all the time. I think different looks have + or -, but it’s all ok. Look, if you had my figure you wouldn’t be able to wear this dress. It looks great on you all over.

Put your dress back on the hanger, go to a spa and treat yourself. You deserve it! =)

I think the dress is lovely, and you look great in it!  We all have body image issues (or I do, for sure) but as long as the dress fits in a way that it won’t slip down during your wedding, then I think it will be just fine.  Once you have your whole wedding look (veil? fascinator? hair accessory?) and a bit of a steam to the dress you will be stunning!!

You look beautiful and not at all like you’re 8 lbs under your normal weight! Has the dress been steamed? Maybe because you’re not filling it out as much as you were before the wrinkles are more obvious. With steaming it will lay nicely. You also may want to try the stick-on padded bra (VS makes some that are reusable: http://search2.victoriassecret.com/?q=stick+on+bra) they’re a little weird at first, but after a while you forget they’re there because there is no strap digging in!
