@kklar25:  Hi! I haven’t bought my dress yet but I love Carolina, I’m trying it on next month! I also like Bronwyn and ‘Lara’ by Sottero and Midgley, again I haven’t tried these on yet. Did you try any other dresses?

I’d love to see a picture of your dress! I am a bit concerned for how supportive on the bust it will be due having to wear a backless bra or stick on cups, have you found this to be an issue?

@kklar25:  Hi I’d love to see pics of the dress if you can get them on here, I decided on the Lara dress by Sottero and Midgley last weekend! I started out loving the structure on dresses like Carolina but the neckline on Lara is exactly what I’m after. I’ve got the same issue with the boobies but I found something on Asos that might work:

I’m a 32D but still wouldn’t feel supported enough with sewn in cups! Good luck finding a solution please keep me updated!

 

p.s Are you having a veil? I didn’t want to cover up the keyhole back but I tried a single tier veil and loved it!

@kklar25:  Wow you look amazing in this dress it really shows off your figure and fits perfectly. The veil is beautiful and similar to the one I tried, it doesn’t detract from the keyhole back but just finishes the dress off nicely. It just goes to show how different dresses can look on different people, the structure of Carolina made my hips and waist look much lower than they actually are which is why I opted for Lara as it has no boning to it.

They wouldn’t let me take photos of my dress, but here is the (much taller) model wearing it:

@kklar25:  

Hi

I am a 32G bust and I have ordered the Carolina dress in a 10. I didnt feel too uncomfortable in it because it has boning, Unfortunately I didnt get photos of the sample I tried and my actual dress isnt arriving until February 2014 but your pictures reaffirmed my love for the Carolina.

With regard to the bra, I actually have the ultimo backless body already. Not sure if I will be wearing it under the dress though. Let me know what you are doing about a bra. I think we may be in the same boat here.

I also got a very sheer veil for this dress so the keyhole wasnt hidden (a little gift from maggie sottero)

this is my Carolina dress. Ordered it a few weeks ago, so should have it back for fitting in 6 months or so. Loved it!! I don’t know what size this is, I want to say 10. I am 5’8” and 130lbs so the lady ordered me a 4.

Hi!

I have the same dress. Love your photos! What style of bustle is that? Are all the layers up together? I have to take mine to the seamstress next week- would love to know what to ask her to do.
