@braverbeating:  That bodice is great on you.

I wasn’t so sure of the skirt part, but it’s growing on me. I think I’d really like it in person. How much darker IRL is that skirt, exactly?

The dress has beautiful detailing, it reminds me of the bodices of prom dresses from the 1950s. But the skirt looks unfinished, almost like it’s just the slip layer and needs more fabric on top. What about some layers of tulle as an overskirt? Or adding a tulle or a crinoline underneath? It definitely needs more volume, and I think some ivory or tea-hued soft tulle would be really beautiful.

I automatically thought that the dress needs more volume underneath. Adding tulle on top might work, as well, but it might be difficult/costly to dowithout covering up that beautiful lace hem along the layers. Maybe change the bust to a sweetheart or softer look?

@braverbeating:  Was going to say sweetheart also! I’m biased because I’m partial to them, but I agree – I think it would flatter your bustline more.

I don’t feel like any drastic changes are need. Maybe add a floral sash, sweetheart neckline, and a crinoline/petticoat.

Example of sash:

bridal sash, bridal belt, bridesmaids belt

I would definitely add more tulle underneath the first layer and make the neckline into a sweetheart 🙂
