    I don’t think you should get rid of it at least until you have talked to a seamstress about it getting fitted properly. The one in the picture (I’m assuming it is the sample) is sitting too low on you, probably due to it being too big. As it’s quite fitted through the waist and upper hips, that means the waist part is sitting over your tummy, but I think it’s supposed to be higher up than that.

    I also think the dress needs to be puffed out slightly with a crinonline/petticoat – that will make a difference to how it sits on you.

    It’s similar to my dress! So not underwhelming! Agree with the above wait until you get a proper fitting!

    I forgot to add – if you wanted to add something, maybe some pearls or crystal beading to the lace. I think a sash would detract from the lace and shape of the dress.

    beachprincess: I think it looks incredible!!! That is pretty much EXACTLY my dream dress, you have good taste!! Would you mind sharing what dress it is? 🙂 And I also agree with clairebbbear that it would look nice puffed out a little like this one but obviously not quite as much as this photo (this is a photo of my dream dress I found somewhere but have no idea what its called, its so similar to yours!) 🙂

    beachprincess:  I have an obsession with puffy dresses so my suggestion is definitely biased! For a floaty style dress I think it is perfect as is 🙂

    beachprincess:  It depends on the type of beads. I had a few glass crystal beads added to my dress and it cost like $50. Admittedly I had my dress made by a dressmaker so it was kind of part of the service.

    beachprincess: now you’ve said that the dress has straps and needs more boning added that makes sense. It’s no wonder it doesn’t fir. The boning should make a world of difference.

    I think this is a great choice especially for the setting of your wedding. I’d say wait until yours comes in and then see if having the right size makes a difference.

    I think if anything you could have it shortened, the train is a little heavy IMO. (I wouldn’t want my dress dragging through earth or sand). The rest is fine though.

    beachprincess:  my suggestion is to not fret overly about it until you have it and try it on again. I keep doing this but when ever I put it on, all the worry disappears. It is beautiful and looks great on you, will be even better after it is in your size 🙂

    Oh honey – it is absolutely flattering.  You have a great body.  I think it’s a perfect pick for the type of wedding you’re having.   TRUST – with a veil and/or flowers it will look amazing.
