@msmaddox:  First off, you don’t look like a whale. Secondly, don’t discount what a talented seamstress can do with alterations. It’s very rare for a wedding dress to fit perfectly as is, especially a dress with straps.

I think the lace on the dress is absolutely gorgeous and gives you a very defined waistline.

@msmaddox:  It’s hard to see with your hair like that – but it looks like there’s a lot of excess fabric up top. I’m sure a tailor will get it to sit properly. I love the overall look of it, though. how are you going to wear your hair?

You don’t look like a whale at all! I think a good seamstress should be able to alter the top nicely. If anything else, I would see if she could also nip in the sides around the thighs/knees to give it a more trumpet/mermaid shape.

Like other PP’s said, you don’t look like a whale at all!!! The dress is gorgeous! I do think with some altering around the top. I do think you look a little bit top heavy but like other people said, snip in the sides by the thighs to give it a more trumpet feel or even possibly adding a crinoline underskit to give the bottom volume as well ,and it will be stunning! I love the v’neck too!

It’s tough to see in the pic but I think the top is way too big for you, and it is making the empire waistline not sit just under your breasts but below where it should be. Talk to your seamstress! It may only need a simple adjustment.

Cover with something the top of the dress in that pic and look at the rest of you. You don’t look like a whale.

I think it looks beautiful! The lace looks awesome!

The right seamstress will make your dress fit more perfectly than any other item you’ve ever worn. Also, it looks like your shoulders are a bit forward, do you have a better pic of you standing tall with your hair back? Posture can make a so-so dress look amazing, so remember to stand tall and smile!

I think it’s beautiful, and you will like it better once it is altered to fit you perfectly! 🙂

 

 

 

On another note, please please don’t drive and post stuff on your phone. it’s incredibly unsafe for not only you, but other drivers. It’s very thoughtless :/

@msmaddox:  that’s pretty. i love the curls. I was thinking that a curly side pony would be really cute with this – to show off the lovely straps and your neck. just my two cents!
