I think the dress looks great on you!  It actually could be pulled in a little more where it bunches at the hips.  It is definitely supposed to be a fitted dress.  Yes, you want it to be comfortable and for you to move around but it definitely doesn’t look too tight!  I definitely think the seamstress can make the changes you want 🙂

carrolltobee:  It is a bit snug around the hips but it has a number of vertical seams . Each seam can normally be let out up to 1/2″ so you should be fine.

Beautiful dress!

carrolltobee:  First gorgeous dress!!! I think you look great in it. Second, I think you can a. have it let out or b. work on firming you thighs and see what happens. YOur wedding isnt until October and alterations dont have to happen right this minute. Take a month to walk or jog a little and see what happens. If the twisting it still there then its the dress and not you. Either way, Im sure you will look amazing on your special day (you already do in these pics)!

Don’t freak yet.  First you look gorgeous in it and it is a beautiful dress. Second you have some time.   Let it go through the first fitting.  Seamstresses work wonders.  If this was after a first fitting and they already let it out then I would be concerned but you should be fine.  Most dresses have enough fabric in the seams to let it out 1 inch to 2 inches.

Is the top big on you? When it comes to the legs I would just do soem lunges and lengthening workouts. You will also drop a few lbs just with stress. Also you have extra fabric like others have said. BTW Beautiful dress!!! You are going to be abd already are a beautiful bride.

I think it looks great.  It almost looks like it could be brought up a bit ie straps shortened, and that would make it sit better on ur hips. I could be wrong!

carrolltobee:  The dress is GORGEOUS! It doesn’t look too tight, you are probably like me and have ‘thick thighs’ which means most clothes pull a little around the hip area. It looks BEAUTIFUL and you will rock it!
