What do you think of this dress? I love it, I love the color the little details and although it will def need some alterations ( corset back cause right now it’s a little too tight and I want a sweetheart neckline instead, maybe a sash for some more bling little things) I def see its potential and I could see myself walking down the aisle in this. What’s the dilema then? I knowwww my mom won’t like it. She isn’t paying for it, but I know she won’t think it’s figure flattering on me and maybe she’s right? I don’t think she’s right but every bride wants her mom to love her dress…. Maybe if I get more opinions, ill know what to do. Be harsh but please not mean 🙂 To add pressure I only have 24 hrs to return it! pic posted up top cause mobile posting hates me: remember the back is not buttoned. Excuse the messy hair dirty mirror etc lol like I said I’m on a time crunch so pics were taken quick and with the only mirror I had

It’s a little hard to tell wether the dress is 100% figure flattering because of how loose the upper part is, but I think it looks great. I know you want your mom to like the dress, but at the end of the day everybody has their individual styles and it’s what YOU like and feel pretty in that counts. I’m sure your mom will think you look beautiful on your wedding day no matter what.

is there a way you can take the picture and have the top be pulled to fit you better? Just so we can see better?

It would be so much easier to tell if the dress was buttoned and there was a clearer picture! Right now I can’t see much of anything. Have you factored in the cost of alterations? With all that you’re thinking of doing to the dress, that might mean a lot of $$$ on top of what you’ve already spent. Have you talked to a seamstress, do you know that these alterations are even possible? Will it change your mind about the dress, if the alterations aren’t possible?
If you only have 24 hours, there’s a lot to think about!

@badabing88: thanks 🙂 tech I’ve already bought it lol since it was 500 which was a steal I bought it but can return it as long as its in 24 hrs
@Ruby-Redshoes: yeah I know my mom would try to love it for me but theres a part of me that wants her to cry like on the wedding shows and just love it as much as I do. Blame TLC haha 🙂

@Itsallcomingtogether: sure ill try
@Dialysate: ill try to post a better pic. The alterations are possible and I can afford them, I did factor in those costs. Thankfully I got this dress secondhand so the price isn’t bad at all.

One thought – how do you feel about adding a crinoline to give the bottom a little bit of oomph and flare?
Also, I really think that if you fall in love with the dress (once you have it the way you want it), your mom will probably more enthusiastic than you think. She’s going to sense either your excitement or your hesitation. You know she just wants you to be happy!

I love the dress, but I think it’s not flattering to your mid- section. I think maybe an A-line shape would work well.

The second picture is much better and more flattering, but I honestly think you can do better, even in that price range. Good luck deciding.

I honestly don’t think it’s the most flattering dress, but if you love it, you will rock it on the day of. My only concern is: are you wearing high shoes in this picture? The dress looks too short

I think it’s nice and if you love it, that’s what’s important. The dress I chose certainly isn’t my mother’s favourite of the ones I tried on. She has very strong opinions on what she thinks I like and while it would have been nice for her favourite dress to be the same as mine, at the end of the day you’re/I’m the one that’s going to be wearing it so you should go with what you like.

I think the second picture looks much more flattering than the first, but even then I thing there are better dresses out there for you. I think the problem is that the mermaid portion doesn’t poof out enough so it’s not providing a good balance. Right now your hips and the mermaid part look more like a column, when your hips should look curvy and then balance with the lower part of the dress.
