    so sorry, but I don’t see a substantial diff there! Dress is lovely on you, and if the alteration makes you happier in it, go for it. But if it’s pricey, then the dress is perfectly fine as is.

    Honestly, it looks like a very subtel difference to me, but I prefer the more fitted look myself, I think it’s more flattering on you.

    I think fitted looks great! shows off your curves! you look gorgeous! Laughing But it all depends on what you are comfortable with.

    I looked at these pics for quite awhile, and eventually I did see a slight difference but I didn’t comment at first because it is SO slight.

     

    I do think that a bit of a fit and flare would be great on you, but I think you’d have to take it in more to notice a difference in the shape of the dress.

    I agree with @Virginia Marie. I prefer the fit n’ flare, but I would do it more dramatically.

    Like that, sort of. But you know, not done in Microsoft Paint 😉

    I think there’s a big difference.  I definitely prefer the fit & flare with your particular body.  It looks great on you both ways but I prefer the fitted look.

    The first one just looks like it doesn’t fit right – the way it is clipped in the “altered” pics looks correct.
