I have no idea what tummy you’re talking about.

I wouldn’t wear a shoe that made the dress too short.  Everyone will see your dress.  Hardly anyone will notice your shoes.

I don’t think it looks too tight on you – I think its supposed to be form-fitting around the waist, which is flattering.  As for the shoes, you either use them or get a shorter pair.  Most people won’t see your shoes much anyways.

Boy..that seamstress was kinda mean.  My seamstress said that I should lose another inch on my waist.  I was like…thanks?

@beeayeyeelelwhy:   Your dress is stunning – feminine and elegant, and so very classy.  The minor bunching around the middle looks like the under layer – I’d guess it can be fixed easily in alterations.  As far as the length, can your seamstress perhaps add on some material (from the train??) either at the bodice seam, or at the shoulders – to make the dress a bit longer?   You could also maybe add some lace to the bottom of the dress?  I’m sure a good seamstress will work with you so you are happy with your beautiful dress.

I kinda see what you are talking about…is it the ripple effect of the fabric that is under the lace that is getting to you?  If so that is easily fixable, you can let out the side seams a little and that should help.  My dress did the same thing at my hips and tummy and we let out the side seams just a little and pulled the under fabric up so that the tightest part was a little higher on a smaller part of my body.

@beeayeyeelelwhy:  you have a beautiful figure at the size you are now. And you will have one that is also beautiful if you lost weight. Your shape distributes weight fairly evenly/proportionate (I think, because my shape is similar), so you can look pretty good at almost any size. Therefore, I think the dress looks great and that the seamstress planted an unnecessary seed. Maybe she wasn’t confident in HER work to make your dress for perfectly (that’s her job, btw), and so she set your expectations low at the start by placing blame on you.  And you should absolutely want to flaunt those curves, are you kidding me?

You look beautiful. The dress is classy and doesn’t make your stomach look bad at all!
