Is it too big? I had this same issue with my first dress, and now I’m trying to sell it actually.

Hm, can you have it altered so that it actually accentuates your waist? Right now, it looks a little “straight up and down”, which I think is visually enhanced by the fact that the end of the body is straight (not sure how to describe it… but the beading looks horizontal). If you feel very upset about it, and you can’t alter it, I would change to another style.

I think with this style of dress, you have to focus on your narrowest part: your waist. And your waist looks teeny to me. I don’t think you look wide at all. Add shoes, a veil, and an updo, and it will elongate you even more. But if you don’t feel beautiful in it, I’d try to change it.

I don’t think it makes you look wide at all.

I think the picture taken from the front is a bit of an optical illusion becasue your right arm is closer to your body.

You are also seeing the reflection from the mirror so it appears there is less space between the dress at the hip and your arm.

You seriously look stunning and it in no way makes you look wide

I think that after it is altered correctly it should be okay, but that is actually why I decided not to order a dress that was similar to that. I couldn’t tell if it was because of the dress or just because it was too big, but see what the alterations department can do to ease your mind.

I see what you are talking about where it doesnt make an hourglass shape, but I think that alterations should be able to fix that. The dress is beautiful and looks amazing on you!

I think the dress looks lovely. And i think alterations will help a lot. Don’t stress or go the crash diet route. You’ll look beautiful and your photog will know how to pose you so you look your best!

I think it is so beautiful on you! The full skirt naturally tends to draw the eye down and out, which just makes your waist look even smaller:)

I think you look amazing in the dress and not wide at all!
