I bought this dress a few months ago when I was sick of running around shopping for dresses and never got the “this is it moment.” This was definitely one of my favorites, but this might have been swayed by the fact that it was the most affordable. I even bought the sample, so it’s hanging in my closet! However I’m starting to have anxiety about whether or not I made the right choice. Reasons why: it seems really simple with not a lot of “flare”, it needs a lot of altering (not to mention the bottom is almost see through), and i think it makes my boobs look huge and weird (I’m 32Dear Daughter and not a huge fan of sweetheart necklines…for some reason it didn’t seem so sweetheart when I bought it).
Has anyone been through this? Does anyone have any ideas for alterations or other accessorizing-type things to help me realize that it’s going to be ok??? Hehe I don’t know if this is normal or not, but I’m freaking out that I made the wrong choice!!

You look SO amazing. I don’t think you need it (AT ALL), but if you wanted a little more flare, you could always do a petticoat underneath. Again, though – you look perfect as is (and the boobage is totally fine, too).

That’s a beautiful dress! I honestly didn’t notice at all that are a bustier woman. The cut is very flattering. If the sweetheartness is bothering you, a seamstress can take down the fabric from that and make it a little more minor (picture just folding it down a little bit). I’d really not change a thing though– you look very beautiful in it!

Girl, it looks fab. Seriously. (I am/was a dress regret person, so I am shooting straight with you. I would wear that dress in a SECOND.)

@rudytheboxer: beautiful on you! Though I am going through the SAME thing. I bought mine bc I was tired of looking and felt pressured by the salesperson. Mine is a pretty dress, too, but not what I absolutely love. So, I contacted the store that I bought it from (famous for NO returns, NO exchanges!) and managed to get them to let me exchange it. I would’ve been content with my first dress, but now that I’m able to get a “do over” on Friday, I am ecstatic. You should be able to find my post on my history, as I just put it up over the weekend.
Everyone was super supportive, but it’s YOU who has to love it.

Thank you so much everyone for the reassurance! It really is one thing when you tell your friends, and they just tell you what you want to hear…strangers on the internet is a little more reassuring 🙂 I think I’m just getting antsy because I have a sample dress that’s 4 sizes too big for me sitting in my closet and I won’t be able to see how it will actually look until a few months before the wedding. It really was practically everything I had been looking for but couldn’t find, plus it’s light and COMFORTABLE (I have to keep reminding myself that that’s ok, and that not all wedding dresses have to be ginormous gowns). I definitely want to bling it out a little more, and hopefully find some bold blue shoes 🙂
@lovelyrose – I definitely want to try it with a petticoat. I think that will help balance out my shape a little more.
Thank you thank you THANK YOU!! Crisis (almost…once I try it on again with my mom) averted!
