    @Crabcakes1027:  I think the shape and neckline is very flattering on you!  Super pretty 🙂

    @Crabcakes1027: No not at all! It’s very much the right dress for you. I love the detail and it’s shape is very flattering on you.

    Awww, sweetheart why are you unsure?  Has it been altered yet?  I am having dress remorse, but I think it’s just because I’m getting closer to the date.  Could that be it for you too?  I think it’s beautiful on you.

    @Crabcakes1027:  it’s gorgeous and it makes you waist look lovely. But I kind of agree that it cuts you off at the transition to the skirt. I would prefer it if it flared out more gradually, from just above where your wrist is, so it was more of a modified a-line or subtle fit and flare.

    if you can’t do that, maybe poofing out the skirt more at the bottom would help.

    @Crabcakes1027:  I think adding cap sleeves is a good idea – not because you need to cover anything but to add width at the top to balance your hips and emphasise your waist.

    Another option would be adding straps that go straight up from your armpit to your shoulder – these would need to be wider than spaghetti straps but not really wide – maybe 1/2 to 1 inch – and lowering the centre of the neckline so it’s more plunging, to create more of a sweetheart neckline. That would make the neckline somewhere between a v-neck and a sweetheart, which would stretch out your silhouette and focus the attention on your boobs and face.
