Do you mind me asking what size you are? I bought a wedding gown that I am no longer going to wear and am willing to give it you or someone who would like it. Let me know if you’re interested 🙂

zora99 :  I am with PP it looks like you probably have an incredible figure but it’s been hidden and swamped by the dress. I think look for a different style.

Well I really like the dress ,I  think it has simple elegant style  It would NOT look better with a belt of any sort ,it  is made to lie/flow flat  down the front . If you really want to add bling , a necklace, earrings or bracelets  is a far better way to do it . I think the belt craze has got out of hand frankly,  lol.

  It is not a ‘sexy’  body-outlining  type of dress,  so if you now think that is what you now prefer, you need to cut your losses and buy another.   

Personally,   I think when fitted to your (admirable) figure it will look wonderful.

zora99 :  Girl, it’s your wedding, if you don’t LOVE it, then it’s not the dress for you. On to the next one! You can wear this to a different pre-wedding event.

As I see it, this dress has huge potential, but you have to commit to making it yours, and you’ve gotten some really interesting suggestions. 

I see “organic’ embellishments, something that suggests the environment of your ceremony- sea shells, a free form flower or leaf? 

I think the line of the dress is lovely on you and I’m always happy to see something that really is unique, as your look has the potential to be. If you have access to a really good sewing outlet you may be able to find something wonderful there that will strike you as being RIGHT.

Also consider a statement necklace in a style of your choice. Simple, elegant, authentically you, so in your own style, dramatic.
