@Barbiestylez:  soooooo pretty! I love that color. Didn’t you only pay like under $600 for the dress? That is such good work! I would wear that everyday after the wedding haha. You’ll have to host fancy tea parties!

@Barbiestylez:  I’m actually sitting here at 1.40am, super tired but still super excited because HELL THIS IS YOUR DRESS!!! The JBS pink mermaid was my favorite by far and I must say I was rather sad when you didn’t pick it, even though I agree that it didn’t look as nice on you.
But this is perfection on you! The cleavage would be also too much for me, but if you’re comfortable with it, then that’s great. It definitely looks sexy and beautiful.

This journey makes me believe that I’ll also get their one day (and it better be sooner than later…).

I don’t wanna stop writing because it really looks so nice on you haha.

@Barbiestylez:  I’m obsessed with the bodice!!! Would you have the style name of the original dress or care to post the pics you gave to the Etsy shop?

LOOOOOVE the bodice OMG. And it’s so much better than on the lady wearing the original. First of all her cups don’t do anything for the chest, I would have never thought of getting that bodice as seen on her, yikes. And there is no lace on her tummy area which actually makes it look bigger. So yay all the way for your dress. I might just have to replicate the bodice.

@Barbiestylez:  okay, I’ve had a crappy day, so I’ll bite.  You have an amazing figure and you obviously love your dress.  You have gotten defensive with anyone who thinks it’s not perfect.  Lots of people agree with your opinion.  Honestly, at this point, I don’t think you were asking for opinions.  I think you were fishing for compliments.  This really deters from all the genuine (and slightly insecure) bees looking for honest opinions.  You think you look awesome.  Many agree.  I’m annoyed that I took the time to share my honest opinion.  In the future, I’ll save my thoughts for someone who actually has concerns about how she looks.

@Barbiestylez:  I don’t think you should take my comment as a slap in the face. I’ve had dresses made according to my measurements that didn’t fit perfectly and still required alterations. It’s not a reflection on your body, so don’t take it that way.

I would go with the bra with no padding. I agree about the wrinkles in the hip area. It is distracting so I’d ask the seamstress what she can do about that. Maybe as simple as tacking down the lace in spots? I’m not sure. The only thing that bothers me about the dress (but I know it’s supposed to be there) is the frayed lace look at the bustline. I’d want to follow you around with my nail scissors trimming it! Lol

@Barbiestylez:  Love it!!! You look amazing!  My only note, which you’ve already seemed to have decided on, is NOT to wear a pushup bra.  The boobs/cleavage give the illusion that the dress is squeezing everything up and out on top.  Just taking the pushup bra off made the dress seem to “fit” you better and look more comfortable.  I wonder if some people aren’t scrolling and seeing your updating pics, because the first shots definitely look tighter than the updated ones!   Congrats on finding it,   now stop shopping! LOL
