I think if you let it out a bit and maybe added a crinoline underneath it would balance out a bit better.

Love the back  and I hope it wont make it too difficult to  angle the sleeves , which I believe is all it needs –  apart from letting out a tad maybe.  It makes such a difference to have the right neckline/sleeves for your body type. 

 It does not , imho,  need a belt  or any other  embellishment. Let the ornate fabric speak for itself .

gettingmarried18 :  I think the dress is starting to look like it fits your properly. so the real question is what is still bothering you about it?

gettingmarried18 :  Agreed, bee. It looks loose in the waist through the bust.

gettingmarried18 :  it does look like the waist can still be nipped in a bit, but there might be a limit to how much she can take in the waist without making the hips too tight. you have a very tiny waist with large hips (which is awesome), but it does pose a challenge in terms of getting your waist fitted tight without the hips being too tight in that your dress needs to flare out from the waist to accommodate your hips over a very short vertical space (if that makes sense). your dress looks like it actually fit your waist originally, but was too tight on the hips. definitely talk to your seamstress and see how much more she’s able to take the waist in – she should still be able to do so at least some – but ultimately i don’t think you’ll be able to get the waist to fit as nicely as it did originally while also fitting your hips (not bunching or pulling). but there should be some middle ground somewhere.

as far as the bustle – i’d ask about more points. 1 point bustles are known to fail (it’s putting a lot of stress on one single button/hook), and ultimately the purpose of a bustle is to be useful.

gettingmarried18 :  oh, and i would ask about the bustle being pinned lower – right now it looks like you’re pooping out your dress.

I thought it looked lovely before, just perhaps a bit low in the front, but with the alteration pinned up it is already quite transfromed and seems much better proportioned for you! Now both the neckline and the back lace are so beautiful! If you’re concerned about the waist, perhaps a sash (not one that goes all the way around — but where the beading/detail is concentrated in the front) could help? Really, you look great. Your fiance is will be blown away.

gettingmarried18 :  you’re paying her for a service, and she should know better than to pin a bustle right in the middle of your butt. So…I’d say it doesn’t matter if she’s annoyed 🤷🏼‍♀️ It’s not a good look. She’d have to change both where the bustle point is and where it connects to.
