anothernewbee16:  I think you can add a bit of a crinoline slip to yours to make it puff out a bit more. 

I’m also a little lacking in the chest area and had a push-up cup built into my dress, gives me a bit of extra ompf/lift to fill out the top a bit more and give a very slight (and tasteful) hint of cleavage. 

Good luck!

Your dress is super gorgeous. I love the material. Don’t worry the thing about wedding dresses is that you love em when u buy them, then you spend months tearing them apart and critiquing them in alterations, then you love them on your wedding day. 

I see what you are saying about the flare- do you think it needs to be taken in a bit at the thighs? Sure, buy a slip or crinoline and try it out why not?

i see what u are saying about the bust. It looks fine but I see what you are saying.  I struggled w the alterations of my sweetheart neckline too. Compared to the sample your bust line has more pointed points at the top of the sweethearts. I would almost recommend leaving it as is tho because in my experience the more you alter the bust the more it gets screwed up.

I think you can add a slip/crinline to yours to make it go more mermaid-y.  You can always adjust your shoes if you really need to if the slip makes it feel too short. 

Additionally…I might see if she can take it in just a smidge on the side of your thighs to help give it that curve as well.  Don’t make it too tight or your won’t be able to sit. LOL 

It’s a beautiful dress.  You’ll be a stunning bride!

amyd223 :  Hi Bee. You look stunning! Did you lose weight? You look slimmer all around and fabulous from every angle. I wasn’t a fan of the ribon tied in the back either. You made a good call on changing that belt. I’m so excited for you and your wedding!  be sure to post a recap!
