    @seagate:  I am going to be honest and say that I don’t like it. It’s very blah, doesn’t do much for your figure and doesn’t seem very current. I think you can definitely find better. Good luck!

    To be honest I am not a huge fan and think it shortens you a bit. Most importantly, you should feel beautiful in your dress (!!!) and you obviously don’t. Find something that you love!!

    I don’t think this dress looks great on you. For some reason, it makes you look like you have a really long torso and tiny little short legs. If you wanted to stick with this dress I think it would be way more flattering to turn it into a close fitting skirt.

    I am not a huge fan of the straight line across your hips.  But perhaps that could be altered to hit at a more flattering spot.  And I think the skirt alterations would be beautiful.

    However, this is YOUR wedding dress. If you are not 100% in love, don’t settle.  You should get the dress that you are going to want to look back on for years to come.

    It’s just ok.  I feel like you could do better.  Also, if you feel like you need to make that many alterations to a dress, it probably isn’t the one.

    Sorry but I also have to agree with PP. it’s just not flattering on you:( 

    I think you should keep looking!

    I’m not in love with it, and I can tell you are not either. I would start looking for something that leaves you with a better impression than “fine”.

    No. You need something without the 2-piece look. The horizontal line cuts you off and makes you look short. The sequins on top are prom-dress-ish, and not in a good way.

    I do like the look of the fabric on the bottom part of the dress, but that’s it.

    You need to start over. Sorry 🙁

    @seagate:  this dress is badly constructed. it is not something that alterations can fix. it is made badly. can you buy a new dress?

    I don’t think the dress is horrible by any means, but as PP I think you could find something that would flatter your figure better than this gown does.

    Sorry, but in all honesty you can do a lot better than that dress!

    Sorry, but I really don’t like it at all.  i agree with the other ladies, it’s not very flattering on you.  You have a lovely figure and I just don’t think it does anything for your shape.  If you love it, thats all that matters but seeing as you dont, I would definitely get something else.


    Good luck!!
