kkaytee03 :  hi!! Yes! I had the same problem and I was so worried because I love dancing, and we had a full on choreographed dance that involved lots of spins and what not. 


I asked my seamstress and she let out the straps enough so I could raise my arms almost all the way up, but as a result the straps were a little loose on my shoulders where they rested. 

It didn’t bother me at all as I would have rather been able to lift up my arms then have them sit perfectly. No one probably noticed but me 


Hope thhs helps!

littlebear91 :  thank you so much for getting back to me so quickly. I go today so 🤞 fingers crossed they can do something. I also love dancing as well and couldn’t imagine not lifting my arms all night!

Thank you so much! It turned out to be lovely!

My options are to have the designer modify the tulle illusion to be built with nude tulle (instead of ivory), and this would cost $150.

Or keep the ivory and let the seamstress work her magic. Any idea which way would be more cost efficient?
