Nope, you look nicely proportioned. Remember that photos tend to flatten things out, making them look wider than they look in real life. 

Are you able to walk without stepping on the hem? The way the hem seems to be folding over on itself in some places makes me think it is a tad long, so be careful when walking.

Nope, you look fantastic!

remember you’re posing full-front to camera in this photo, which has a way of flattening out our figures. That’s not how you look in real time. Turn hips  slightly 3/4 for photos and you’ll see the light hits your shape in the curved way it’s meant to 🙂

also, the color white in photos has a way of making everything appear a little larger. It’s just that if you consider white a “highlight,” your whole dress is a highlight. So a photographer will make use of shadows and posing to have your actual figure appear as slim as it is. Wedding photography is an art in itself, imo…

 

 

lovely, bee!

No, your figure is amazing!

If it wasn’t a flattering dress I’d honestly say so.

I think you look fantastic, but maybe some accessories would help you feel more confident.  Some pearls to highlight your skin tone, a sparkly belt to show off that tiny waist – stuff like that.  You don’t NEED them, but you might be happier with them.

You look fine but the dress might need a tweak. look at the left wrist to hand. Across there, a seamstress might need to do something.  I don’t know what, but you are fine. Your shape is amazing.  The dress might need just a tiny bit of shaping tailored to your great look .
