Hi! I got the lorie and I have been having it altered into a mermaid/fit-and-flare, throughout the process I was getting nervous that I was not going to get the look I wanted, but after my last fitting my nerves were calmed. I had it fitted very tight, added cups, and a LOT of tulle to the skirt. I still have one more fitting to go but this is what it looks like so far…

Sil-LaLa:  Do you have any photos you can share from your big day so I can see the finished dress alterations please? I’m considering doing this to my own Lorie but concerned about how easy it will be and if I have enough time (dress arrives March, wedding 2nd May). Also, how did you find the alterations in terms of comfort – were you able to sit down okay for example?

i hope these pictures help, i had it flare out right under my butt so it was easy to walk and dance. Sitting wasnt totally comfortable but i just had to pull the dress up a bit before i sat down and i had to sit up straight which was fine because it looked better in the candid shots, you don’t want to be caught slouching! But you barely sit anyway! Lol

I probably would have bought this dress if I had found a store near me that carried it in my size, but the only one that carried it had it in a plus size and it was too hard to imagine what it would have looked like on me. I definitely would change the shape to a mermaid!! That is the shape of the lace gown I eventually bought. Love love love your dress! I’m sure you will look beautiful no matter what!
