Hi bees! I got my dress back from alterations yesterday, and I had mixed feelings about it. The dress needed to be taken out in the hips, but now I feel like it has lost some of its shape (whereas before it was more figure hugging).
My sister suggested I put a belt/sash right under the bust to give it more shape, so we tried that using my bridal headband. What do you guys think? Would it look better with something there? If so, what kind of belt would you suggest? Or is that an odd place to have a belt/sash?
P.s – sorry the pics are so huge!

Definitely think it will look better with a belt! I think something similar in style to your headband would actually work pretty well.

Love it with a belt. Can they take it in under the chest area to the waist? I feel like it looks very loose.

I’m for the high waisted belt too and I think your dress is just gorgeous.

Gorgeous dress! And the belt is definitely matching the dress. I agree it gives more shape to the dress.

Looks great with the belt.
are there cups sewn in? I feel like the definition under the bust area is not as great as it could be. Perhaps it needs to be slightly higher but it definitely needs support there. Are you going to wear any support garments?

the belt gives it a better shape. i’m just not sure if the belt you had on is the right one for the dress 🙂

belt definitely makes a difference! I would try lowering it a bit so it sits on your natural waist which is the smallest part. That will give you even more of a shape!

I like your dress better without the belt. The belt doesn’t look bad, but it seems like “too much” because of the 3D lace/flowers on the dress.
