    I didn’t vote because my answer doesn’t really fit any of the choices. I was extremely happy with my seamstress; however, I do wish that she would have suggested more coverage for my girls.

    I have DDs and I don’t normally show them off, so I was a bit uncomfortable on my wedding day with so much of them showing. It didn’t help that my girls didn’t notice that my gown wasn’t pulled up properly when I put it on either.

    If I would have had more coverage, I would have been much more comfortable with my dress and I think based on my conversations with my seamstress and her experience, she should have pointed out that the dress would slip as the day went on, so I might be showing more of the girls than I wanted.

    I did have her put in a privacy peice of lace in between the sweetheart and it looked awesome when I tried it on, but when it came to actually moving around in it, I could have used more coverage.

    I was 100% happy with my seamstress; however, I was really picky and told her exactly what I wanted! And made sure it was right afterwards and it wasn’t I would tell her so that she could fix it!

    So when we were all done it was perfect 🙂

    I was 100% happy with my seamstress. She worked for the bridal shop.

    My seamstress, Janet, was AWESOME.  Before we even met, we conversed via email and I sent her photos of my dress.  @ my first fitting, she already had a game plan and it was executed brilliantly. 

    A week before the wedding, she also fixed some minor hiccups on my China made reception dress.  

    I can’t wait to go back to her since she handles more than just wedding dresses.

    @knight.keira: Yes, and I hate most of the photos with me in them. I so wish I could do the pictures over again.

    I wasn’t wearing a corset or a bra, but that wasn’t the problem. The problem was that the girls didn’t help me put the dress on properly to begin with. I guess because we were too excited. And then the more I moved around the more of the girls got to show. No one said anything and everyone I asked about it said I looked beautiful, but I think they were just being nice because when I look at the pictures way more is showing than I have ever showed in real life. The fact that I am a DD on top didn’t help matters.

    I went to a local seamstress who I heard was great by word of mouth. People definitely weren’t lying to me because she was awesome and had my dress ready to go within three days! 🙂
