    I honestly think it’s gorgeous and very flattering! But nobody can make you love it but you. Maybe you could try to fix it in some way if you can pinpoint a problem. Like, maybe adding cap sleeves would feel more “you.” Or a different sash. Or the right jewelry. I think it’s beautiful, but I’m a stranger on the Internet so my opinion is not as important as yours!

    I think your dress is gorgeous on you! But if you’d like to make it more mermaid, is there anything that alterations can do to pull it in from the hips to the upper thighs to make it more fitted to the shape you prefer? I’m not a seamstress, but it doesn’t seem like it would be too difficult to consider! Gorgeous sash too!

    With that body, you’d look good in anything! Seriously, you look beautiful in the dress, but it sounds like you want a more sexy “wow” look. It looks a little loose on you right now. What would happen if you got it altered to be more form fitting? I think that the dress is beautiful on you, in a very sweet way.

    It’s beautiful and it looks amazing on you, I think once you have the alterations done maybe you will like it more. Also LOVE that sash!

    The dress is beautiful and it doesn’t need any beading to make it more beautiful.  I agree with you that the back should fit a little bitter or a little tighter.  You should try it on with a veil.  Also you get a veil with beading edge I believe and that might make you feel more dressy.  However, if you don’t feel YES to the dress, maybe you can look around for more just in case your dream dress pops up.

    It’s gorgeous on you.  Seriously beautiful.  Can you pinpoint what it is that you hate about it?

    ETA: I just read your comment about not liking it because it’s too A-line.  Alterations can make it more fitted through the hip, which may make you feel a lot differently about it.  It’s worth looking into.  I think when it fits you right, you’ll feel differently, because right now, it’s too big, so it’s not really showing your figure like it should.  I felt the same way when I tried mine – it looked worse than when I put on the sample because at least the sample was clipped so it appeared fitted, but mine did not.  I really think that alterations will make all the difference in the world here.

    I think you look beautiful!! And I love the sash!  But truthfully, I would say at least look at other dresses if you aren’t happy.  I think it would be something that would haunt you if YOU felt you didn’t look beatiful on your wedding day.  I know of someone, and read posts of people, who hated their wedding dress.  And then they hate their pictures, videos, etc. of the day b/c it shows the dress they didn’t feel great in.  Personally, the dress was never too big of a deal for me (I bought a replica from China) but I know if I didn’t love, love  the dress I got I would find another b/c of the other aspects it would hinder for me. 

    But, again, I think you look beautiful and with alterations would maybe love the dress more!  However, if you want to look/buy another, then hold off on the alterations…
