    I think it looks really good, honestly! I like the bolero with it, too. I’m not really sure what you don’t like about it – is it the fit? Do you want more embellishment or something fancier? I wouldn’t add a belt because I think it would look funny with the empire waist of the dress, but you could dress it up beautifully with some sparkly jewelry and nice heels! 

    At the end of the day, though, if you don’t love it and you’re not comfortable in it, I think you should return it and keep looking. You should definitely feel beautiful on your wedding day! What other styles are you interested in and what’s your budget?

    I agree that if you hate it, return it.  There are lots of options for afforable, white, modest dresses!  If you’d like, I could help you look.

    FWIW, I don’t think you look awful in it.  In fact, I think it’s adorable!

    I like the dress! I think it fits well and flatters you! I think the problem is the bolero, as you said.

    the bolero is too boxy.  Get a thinner one made out of a stretchy lace and you’ll be perfect

    Yeah I agree the problem is the bolero, its too baggy, something tighter would look great! The dress is adorable, what about a blingy type sash belt to go around the waist I think it would look stunning and give it that wow factor you think its missing…..

    I think your dress is very pretty but if you don’t like it, absolutely return it. I took a quick look on Macys’ website and found these two but I’m not sure what your budget is.

    This one is on sale for $89.99 and comes in a 22, which might fit depending on your the cut (they provide a size chart with measurements).



    This one is $178 and comes in a 24. It has the flutter sleeves so you may not have to wear a bolero.

    In the picture you don’t look happy at all. Breaks my heart. I think you should return it. I really like the dress that MsMindle posted!!!! I think that would look beautiful on you 🙂

    I hope you find something you love. Dont settle for something you dont like.

    I don’t think it is that bad…I would recommend added a tule slip underneath to give it a little volume and maybe a sash of some sort to break it up.  But still keeping it simple.  If not then I would recommend a different dress you will feel comfortable in.  I understand as I am a plus size 18 and know how difficult dresses can be.  

    sorry small image…http://www.torrid.com/torrid/Clearance/Dresses//White+Voile+Embroidered+Hem+Dress-547929.jsp’ defer=’defer  try torrid…it’s sleevess as well but has the cute flower at the waist to bring some definition.  And marked down to $60….

    http://www.torrid.com/torrid/Clearance/Dresses//Off-White+Crochet+Sheath+Dress-558233.jsp’ defer=’defer  this one is cute to and is an off-white crochet sheath dress but still looks fitted. And a steel at $40! 


    Whichever makes you feel beautiful and comfortable as its the one day you want glow and be you.  🙂
