Ok, your waist looks AMAZING in that dress.  For that matter, the whole dress looks great on you!  I have to scrutinize to see the bodice problem.  WHO will be staring at your boobs for five minutes straight during the wedding?  I agree that it looks a LITTLE offkilter; I bet a different bra and some dress tape (to arrange and hold the bodice just where you like it) would do wonders.

I would work really hard to get the nerve to call your seamstress and explain what exactly you don’t like about the dress. I’m sure she will fix it!

I think you look beautiful! You did not pick the wrong dress at all.

I went back and read your previous post and saw you were worried about looking chesty. I agree that you should bring up your concerns with the seamstress.

I also suggest that you make sure to angle yourself every so slightly in your photographs. In the first photograph where you are straight on, I notice the chestiness a little bit (I did have to read your previous post though to figure out your concern). But in your third photograph, where you’re angled just a bit, you look stunning and the effect totally disappears. That’s how professional models stand because it is so flattering! Look at pictures of actresses on the red carpet—they always put their body at a bit of an angle because it looks so good. You look that good too.

I think your dress looks great and I don’t see what you’re talking about. I can relate though because I’m going through a similar thing with my dress (I love the dress but something doesn’t feel quite right, everyone says it looks great). From the pics I think it looks awesome and really shows off your figure.

Its just a tad bit too large around the boob sides. Ask her to take that in a smidge and it will be perfect.

*you look AWESOME in this dress!*

I love your dress and I think you look beautiful!

I also think that there is too much fabric on the outsides of your boobs. I see it because I had a dress that i had the same problem with I ened up getting a new dress (the body of your dress is much nicer than mine).

Try calling your seamstress and see what she thinks maybe you can go back in within the next week and she can fix it.

You look AMAZING!

I think the straps look different thicknesses but that’s really the only part that I can see that needs fixing!

I hope that the seamstress can do whatever needs to get done so that you LOVE your dress!

I think you look beautiful! That is an incredible dress and very flattering to your (awesome) figure. I agree that it is a little big on the sides of your boobs… maybe take the straps up a bit, too? Also, if you feel like your seamstress isn’t achieving your vision, don’t be afraid to take your dress elsewhere!

Do you know how many women at your wedding will be totally envious of how stunning you are?! Wow! Don’t be upset, you look amazing! I promise you, no one will notice anything wrong with your dress. The dress is gorgeous, but honestly, the first thing I noticed in your pictures was how happy you looked. That’s what all of your guests will see, not some nearly invisible flaw in your wardrobe!

Be happy!! =]

This is why I’m a bit scared of my alterations. 

But honestly, you look beautiful! And you look HAPPY, too!! It’s a gorgeous dress and it compliments you! 

If you’re not happy with it, I would voice that to the seamstress, just tell her something doesn’t seem to fit right. I think the first pictures it looks fine and not crooked, maybe it just shifted in the last picture–it seems like you could turn it to center it with it already on you.

I hope this all works out for you 🙂

I’m not one to kiss ass…so normally I don’t give my opinion. But honestly, it looks fine…I don’t see anything wrong and it looks great.

Hmm… I don’t see a problem at all!  In fact, your dress is exactly what I was looking for (and never found): v-neck and layered bottom… it’s gorgeous on you!  Sorry, maybe that doesn’t help… but I think you look stunning!
