The dress looks amazing on you in that photo, so I wouldn’t worry at all about looks! If you’re not comfortable/struggling to breathe, that’s a bit of an issue, though. It is possible to get through the day in a dress that’s a big tight – my dress (corset back), was pulled in really tight. After about 10 minutes, I barely noticed it and could breathe fine, but when I took if off, there were bruises on my side! So even though it was definitely tight, it still looked great and I barely noticed it after a few minutes! (Note: I’m not normally an advocate for wearing crippling clothing just to look pretty, but figured I’d make an exception for the wedding day).

Honestly, the dress looks great, so if you think you can wear it for the day, then go for it! If you’re worried, though, maybe get someone to let it out slightly so you can breathe – even if it’s just a random seamstress rather than a wedding dress shop 🙂

i think it looks good but if you still want it altered, you can take it to any seamstress or tailor that has wedding dress experience.

You can’t tell anything is wrong by looking at it, so I think you’re spending your energy on something that doesn’t deserve your attention!

I think it looks absolutely wonderful on you! My dress (corset back) was pulled SUPER tight at first, and within 10 minutes it fit nice and snug. Within 2 hours I was pulling it up because it was a littttle too low for my taste. I honestly think you will be fine! It will loosen up over time, promise 🙂

I think it looks fine! You’re going to be in this dress for several hours, you need to breathe!
