Love it!!  You do look smaller – though you were pretty tiny to start 🙂  Congrats!

In the first picture, it looks to me that perhaps the corset isn’t cinched in tight enough. I have the Karena (halter version of the Karena Royale) and when I tried it on with my mom helping me it sort of gapped like that at the top and I was a bit worried that it would have to be taken in. But when the seamstress did it, pulling the cords really tight, there’s absolutely no gap (and it isn’t too tight at all, it feels very fitted). Also, have you considered bra cups? I couldn’t find a bra to go with the dress but the seamstress is putting in push up cups. Looks fabulous and is way cheaper than a bra too.

You look good, but make sure that dress is cinched in as much as possible before you let the seamstress start taking it apart.

You look great.  If you are going to worry about the back I would make sure you get it right.  Especially with how much the alterations are.  You look great!  Congrats on the dress and the weight loss.

i’ve always loved this dress and i would have bought it had i not opted for a trumpet dress!!!!!

i think you’ve made a great choice having a double french bustle, because it gives this elegant a-line dress something fun in the back!

regarding the back fat, i think it’s because the corset was too tight on the top, thus, squeezing out the fat. if you could pull the corset the tighest around the waist and keep it really tight until the bottom of your bust, then not as tight around the bust and the top of the dress, you should and would still have good support for your girls but no back fat. i hope i am being clear here.. (sorry, english is not my first language!)
