if you tried on a sample 10 it was probably stretched out from other people trying it on.

Once they let the sides out it’s going to look great – then the waistline won’t be so tight over your stomach.   The voluminous material will lay flatter – everything will be perfect!

I think it’s really beautiful, and I like it with the straps. I guess I’m not really seeing what you mean. Your boobs don’t look smashed and the waist doesn’t look like it’s buckling? If you DO need to lose weight, it can’t be very much…

that seens so odd. Did they not take your measurements and then decides the size to order you? I dunno that just is odd that they would order based on the size you tried on and not your actual measurments. 

But it sounds like they have a plan to fix it. And i have DD’s, i feel your pain lol!! Its lovely though and you will be perfect on your wedding day!!

i think you look pretty!!! I like the straps.  I love the sidesweeping hair, You look beautiful.


I have the same issue – “My boobs were bubbling over the top with the dreaded big boob crease line (ladies with DD’s and above should know what I mean).” if you figure out how to fix that – let me know. That is my biggest concern for my dress too.

me – the first time i tried it on (i had a corset bra on)  … i’ve lost weight since then

2nd time i tried the sample on – no bra or built in one.

The straps crossing in the back gives it character… I like it. Good thing about the boot camp, but it’s still not a guarantee, you will lose fat but also gain muscle so you may not lose inches! But on another note, didn’t she measure your bust area, to make sure a 12 was the right size?

OMG, I LOVE your dress! It looks great on you! I think once it is let out a smidge (not much at all) it will be perfect!

@Swizzle:  Agreed. They’re supposed to measure you and then suggest a size to order based on your largest measurement.

However. You look great in that dress. Aside from being too tight to breathe, I think it fits you just fine. The straps look good and don’t take away from anything.

I think it looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Remember that we are our own worst critics hon. 

If it feels too tight though, then obviously something needs to be done. personally, I see nothing wrong with it, but it’s how you feel in it. 🙂

Dress looks fine.  Boobs are fine.  The waist is a little snug, but if you’re going to be working out, that should resolve itself.  Don’t let it out until you’ve reached your ideal size/shape, otherwise you’ll be paying more for alterations.
