Have you purchased it or could you buy a different dress? Maybe going up a size will help with the wrinkling? How far off is the wedding?

I don’t think you look awful but I think they’ve made the dress too small. Can you try it on with shapeware? Not sure if that will help. Best of luck x

The dress just doesn’t fit yet. Have you seen a seamstress for alterations?

You don’t look awful AT ALL.

The only thing bothering my eye is the bunching at the waist (the sideways lines) if these weren’t there everything would look more streamlined. Shapewear, letting the dress out or fixing the lining if that is the issue can all help this. 

Truly, this is a lovely dress and you will be gorgeous in it.

I think it looks great on you and will look even better after you get it fitted.  It does seem to need ton be taken out a bit,  but after that,  I’m sure it’ll look lovely on you.

As the others have said, it looks too small. It would either need to be let out in the torso area if you have $ for alterations or you could try to lose a few kilos..if that’s something that you want to do and if you have time.

Look at your hourglass! You look beautiful, bee. 

Perhaps it needs to be altered a bit and you could always try your sleeves angled more toward your arms to accentuate your décolletage, but as is, hello nipped in waist and beautiful figure!

Agree with pp, perhaps alter the sleeves so they angle out toward your arms more and I think a small belt will accentuate your waist more, give you that sexy shape!

You do not look awful at all. A bit of alteration in terms of letting out ( or maybe just shapewear) 

Also, as balletparker says , the straps/neckline could be angled outwards better, edging to an off the shoulder style . As they are, they are not the best placed for your slightly sloping shoulders. I have  the same and look far better in wider necklines .   

Don’t please  be tempted to add a  belt, the dress would not be enhanced by one and you you have a beautifully  defined waist already .

You don’t look awful!!! You just need a seamstress to let it out a bit, that’s all!

gettingmarried18 :  the sleeves should be easy to angle out unless the back is complicated. You just want them angled out, not hanging off. 

Please don’t worry about the dress right now, the alterations appointment will give you a lot of info.
