You appear to have a great shape, and I’m sure that alterations would give the dress a much better fit.  With that being said – the dress itself is not my favorite.  The lace panel in the back looks really odd to me.  There are tons of flattering dresses out there.  If this one doesn’t have your heart, another will

peachnlello :  This is going to sound insulting but please understand I mean it in the kindest sense – the back looks wrong on you.  That skinny-minny model is so freaking thin that the transparent part wraps to her sides.  On you it’s just a weird U shape on your back and it looks ridiculous.  If you add a panel, it’ll be fine, but if you leave it transparent it will always look like a U, unless they can expand the uncovered portion in alterations.

As to the rest, while it’s not the most unique dress, most of them on the bee aren’t either, so I don’t see what difference that makes.  Put in the panel, get it better fitted to your curves at the waist, find a pretty necklace and you’ll look lovely.

skunktastic :  I agree. My dress was very similar and I was trying to think what looks off and the panel seems very low.   Did you try it without a bra on? I would be worried it wouldn’t hold you in very well. My paneling was straight across and gave decent support. Maybe that would help? Don’t mind the weird face 😂

peachnlello :  brutal honesty?

It looks good.

And I think you’re aiming for exquisite. Or stunning. Or glamorous. Or radiant. Or breathtaking. Or fantastic. Or gorgeous.

So good just doesn’t cut it.

I LOVE this dress. I think if it was fitted properly for your body, it is a winner. The back is stunning. Just the right amount of sexiness. Maybe have your hair trial and makeup trial and try the dress on to see if the look comes together, if you still aren’t feeling it, then go on the hunt for another one.

It works and it will look better after you have it altered. But it’s not the best you can do.

You could do so much better, sorry but that dress does nothing for you.

This was the dress that gave me dress regret. I wish I had tried it on as well. I think the dress is gorgeous and once it is properly fitted with some pretty  earrings and a belt and a veil you will look beautiful. No worries!!

I think you can do better. The dress isn’t bad but it’s not good either. It’s just kind of there and cookie cutter as others have said and wedding dresses do not have to be cookie cutter despite what designers keep presenting us. The back is also odd..it doesn’t even look good on the rail thin model. Sorry bee but I hope you find a dress you feel amazing in if you do opt to get another dress.

I think it’s kind of basic and blah. It doesn’t flatter your figure much either. I would keep looking. :/

I don’t mind the dress and you don’t look awful in it, but….You can do better.

I like it!! But that little lace patch in the back is weird. I don’t know why some people say it does nothing for your curves- I see plenty of curves!!!!

I do not love it, if we’re being honest… But I was just like you… I bought a wedding dress then immediately regretted it. I liked it because it made my mom cry. It made me feel like a cupcake…

 So, I bought another on a very strict budget.

peachnlello :  It’s not classy at all. In fact, the dress really looks…naked. I’m sure you can find a dress that will feel more bridal.
