Can you get a new dress? Or post pictures for us

Edit- I see the picture now! I think it looks good is that a picture now or when you bought it? ( I think it looks good just wanted to know if it looks different now)

I think the pick ups look really nice! And you have a great waist, and this dress definitely still shows it off.

I think once its pressed and sits nicely you will like it more. It definatly looks good; just wrinkley like its been shoved in a bag…. Don’t panic you will look great!

Is it possible (in the amount of time) to have the hips taken in more, to give the effect of a modified A-Line?  It would show your curves (and slimmed physique) but would not completely alter the dress design.  I think you look terrific…

The dress looks great!  Since you recently lost weight, I understand you probaby want to show that off a bit more, but you really look amazing in this dress! Congrats on the weight loss also!

Is it possible to get a new dress? It’s a pretty dress but if you dislike pickups I can see how you wouldn’t like your dress Frown

Ok aside from the pickups that you don’t like…

This dress gives fabulous defination to your waist!! In all of your pictures, you will be able to see that. I think your arms and collarbone area look awesome as well and that’s really what stands out in pictures- your top half.

Think about it: you’ll have either your FI or family members or BMs around your dress and the bottom will blend in but your upper body will be the highlight of the pictures

With your hair and makeup all done, you will look beautiful!

First of all, GOOD JOB about losing 40 lbs! You look great!!

Second, I think the dress you have now defines the beautiful cruves you’ve been able to maintain despite the weightloss.  The bodice does a great job highlighting your shoulders and collarbone, and the pleating around the waist makes you look smaller.

Can the pick ups be taken out? Or, at least some of them? I wonder if that would help.

Oracle –

 

Congratulations on your weight loss!  As June said, if you don’t like pickups it is understandable that you are not happy with your dress.  What gave your waist such a great shape is the rouching across the top of the dress.  If you are a sample size, you may have some options at many bridal salons.  If not, I know that NY has consignment shops that sell wedding dresses – you might want to see what the options are in LA.  If your price range is David’s Bridal, I think they stock dresses in different sizes in the store.  IF not, you can try calling bridal salons and asking them if they carry any manufacturers who keep dresses in stock in the US.  Best of luck to you.

Just wanted to say I’m not usually drawn to pickups but I honestly think your dress is gorgeous. Your waist looks tiny & your shoulders look good!

I’ve found that after periods of time when I’m devoted to fitness / dieting, I am a LOT more critical of my appearance & don’t think I look good in things that I used to love (even if they fit a little better). Maybe the same is true for you? Anyway…if you stick with this one, I promise your guests will think you look amazing. And if you want to change, I understand how you feel.
