I think your dress has more of a wow factor.  Its really lovely . The other dress is nice, but not as show-stopping.

shlobin:   Your dress is drop dead gorgeous – and so are you!!!  Please leave it as is – when it is your size and fitted properly in alterations it will fit perfectly.   Wow.  What a stunning dress!!!  I love it!!

Don’t touch it. I love it on you just the way it is. 

Sometimes, and not always so please don’t jump on me for this, anyone that has a halter style dress.. halter style tops make you look a bit wider on top, especially if you already have the cleavage factor. Lol. I think this dress is just beautiful as is.

The second dress is just to demonstrate the halter straps I think!!!  Right?

I too have the armpit fat and I’m a size 6!  Strapless just doesn’t look good on me yet I went with it for my wedding day.  However, if you size up so that it’s not squeezing your boobs, then get the waist tailor so that goes in – then I think you have a winner.  I also think it’d look great with the halter idea as well.

I love the dress as is, you just need some good alterations. Make sure you get it big enough to pull it up high and emphasize to your seamstress that it should stay high. It will inevitably slip down a bit anyway.

Honestly, your dress looks amazing on you.  It will definitely fit differently when it’s in your size, and a good seamstress can make that sweetheart perfect for you.  Your dress is a major “wow” dress and it really looks incredible.  Leave it as is!!

Your dress is so gorgeous!  It looks terrific on you and will fit like it was made for you after alterations.  I love the intricate beading!

I love your dress I would say alter it a little bit to make it better fitting….but other than that it looks beautiful on you!  Who’s the designer of your dress?

i love the dress. It may help if the sweetheart was less extreme. Also, lowering the back helps with any armpit pudge u don’t like. I read a thread about it somewhere on the bee…
