anybody else experience dress regret? I just don’t feel this is “the dress” anymore. I was rushing when I was shopping cause the shop was closing soon and I had traveled from out of town. I did try on about 10 other dresses at another store before going there. I fell in love with it but looking back now i’m trying to figure out how to “add more”. Add more poof, more lace, etc. It was a fairly large dress so I didn’t get the full effect of how it’ll look once it’s fitted. I also want to do alterations on the train and possibly have it look like the picture attached. Thoughts?

Oh my gosh! This looks stunning as it is – pleaes don’t alter the train to look like the second pictures. You will look amazing once it is YOUR dress and altered to fit you perfectly!

You look like Jessica Rabbit! Hottie with the body! No need for dress regret girl, that dress is epic and does amazing things for your figure. Maybe get a long veil if you are dying for the train?

You could play with a belt/sash if you want to add more bling, but I think it will look great once it is fitted to you.

beanerchic69 : You picked right!!!!…..that dress is amazing! You dont need to bling it up because your fabulous figure is doing all the blinging up you need! Add a belt by all means if you want to but seriously you look amazing as is!
You are not plus size… you are all fabulous curves in all the right places!!!!
Don’t worry so much. You seriously look amazing!

beanerchic69 : I think your dress looks perfect as is, very wow and very elegant. You look so stunning! I would not add a belt or anything to it, just jewellery for you to wear.
Personally I’m not a fan of the train of the inspiration photo, the lace layers looks like oversized doilies.

beanerchic69 : I wouldn’t even call you plus size! That dress is gorgeous! If you don’t like it, that’s fine, but altering it so much would probably be more expensive than just getting a new dress.

Bee…you definitely shouldnt be having dress regret! That dress looks amazing on you. I honestly think youd risk ruining the dress trying to add a train like that..and I can only imagine the cost of doing something like that.

Looks just lovely , please don’t go adding redundant sparkly belts and stuff, nor a train like the picture , which I’m betting would cost heaps and In My Humble Opinion is rather old fashioned looking – and not in a cool vintage way!

beanerchic69 : I think you look STUNNING and this gown is a show stopper!! If you wanted it to be more poofy on the bottom you could add a crenoline? And a cathedral veil would give you the train feeling without having to blow your budget on alterations!! I wouldn’t personally add a belt though, I think it would make the dress look choppy and broken up and wouldn’t really do anything for your gorgeous figure. Never underestimate the effect of professional hair, makeup and accessories as well 🙂

It seems like the cups are the only thing that need alteration and then you’re set. You could definitely make/find a detachable train for the ceremony – that would be really pretty, or maybe just a really long veil.

dont have regrets. It looks amazing. It willlook even better when fitted. Put petticoats at the bottom of you want extra poof and super long amazing veil and it’ll have so much wow.

Don’t add the train in the second picture, I don’t even know how that would work. It’s great as it is.

Nope nothing extra needed there bar the alterations.
Try it with a veil and a petticoat if you want to though 🙂
