I think the dress is pretty but very overwhelming on you.

I suggest you try a drop waist or a mermaid style.

Honestly, I like the dress, but I’d love it if there was a way to take the applique flowers off of it. Then, with simple jewelry and maybe some colorful shoes it would be so beautiful.

I think the dress is just okay, to be honest.  I’d really like to remove those big applique flowers too.

But really – if you’re having serious dress regret, its time to start looking elsewhere.

It is very pretty but I feel like you’re being swallowed by it. Is there a way to depoof it?

I think the dress is pretty but it is just eating you up! You are petite and cute and it seems like the dress is swallowing you.  You could look good in a potato sack so if you feel like this is not your dress then keep looking! 

Another option that I think would really help is taking off the little rosette things that are hanging off, add a thin sparkly belt, and then when it is hemmed to your length it will look gorgeous 🙂

I agree with taking off the rosettes/ appliques… plus, keep in mind that you’re looking at a pic that isn’t hemmed properly yet.  I think some of the problem is the odd way it’s hanging at the bottom, and that will be fixed in altering the length to fit you.  Some of that might be the bulk that’s bugging you.

I agree with pp’s.  The dress is swallowing you and I’m not liking the appliques either. Perhaps you can sell the dress and use the money you make from the sale of the dress towards another dress that fits your frame.  Then you won’t be wasting money – just moving it around a bit.

@JM1217: It would be better if the flower petals could be sewed down so they lay flat against the skirt and blend in. If they were just more subtle they could definitely work.

Like this, with the ribbon sash.

I’m going to be frank, I really don’t like your dress. And it appears you don’t either. I say let your parents purchase another dress for you, and sell this one.

You need to look for a new dress. You look fine with this dress but it’s just not what you want.

I suffered from dress regret too and after agonizing for days (and pissing everyone off in the process. My in-laws now know me as the ‘indecisive, picky, dumb one”), I cancelled the order and looked for another dress (at the same store so as not to lose the deposit).Initially, I thought I would never get the feeling and would never be satisfied and that the first dress was the best I could get BUT I was wrong. Best decision ever!
