A few days ago, I posted about my dress that still wasn’t fitting at all after two alterations: https://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/dress-doesnt-fit-after-2-rounds-of-alterations/page/2#post-11389811
Sad and frustrated and running out of time, I ordered a bunch of dresses to try on (the wedding is in October, so there isn’t a lot of time to continue trial and error with the original dress) with the hope that something would fit better out of the box than the altered one does and I wouldn’t have to keep investing money toward alterations for a dress that might not work in the end. While none of the dresses are super unique or fancy and I wouldn’t have targeted them as my “dream” dress in terms of style, I think proper, flattering fit is more important than anything. It’ll need to be hemmed, of course, but that seems like an easy fix. I’m posting a close up of the boob area since that was such an issue with the last one. I have no idea why the second pictures is showing up sideways. Let me know what you think.

Yay, that’s super flattering! Sorry this isn’t your dream dress but it looks great if you can’t get the other one to work.

Rachael1 : I posted on your other thread and OMG you have an amazing figure and the old dress didn’t do great things for you and didn’t highlight how amazing your figure actually is!!
This dress is beautiful and you make it even more beautiful! I’m pretty certain you look even better wearing it than the model on the website you purchased it from.
Great pick and seriously you look amazing! This is 100% your dress!

I love that dress on you! What a fabulous figure you have. While the other dress has lots of detail (and is stunning too) this one puts the focus squarely on you and your slender gorgeousness.

You look 3 sizes smaller in this dress and the bust area improvement is amazing!!! This is a more ‘plain’ dress but if you dress it up you can make it work…it makes the other dress seem.dowdy.

I wore a $99 Lulus dress for my wedding, I do not regret it. I say go for it, if your other dress cannot be fixed. I dont particiularly care for most traditional wedding dresses. I prefer a sophisticated look. This dress says sophisticated and elegant, without doing the most. It will all come together with hair, make up, bouquet, and shoes.
