    The dress fits you like a dream and is beautiful.

    I do see what you’re talking about, if I put my critical eye on. I don’t think the seamstress bringing it in a little will really address it. Have you tried a sash or belt? Maybe something to complement the under-bust bow? That would help accentuate your tiny waist.

    You look beautiful either way!!

    You look gorgeous from the front, gorgeous from the back. It fits so perfectly.

    You don’t look even the slightest bit fat with my most critical eye on.

    i feel like these posts must be so hurtful to people who actually are overweight.

    anyhow, your dress looks great; stop obsessing!!

    I was so confused when I saw the photo so I really do have to ask ‘what are you talking about?’, you’re really silm and have a great figure. I have no idea how you think you look fat?!

    I do think you need to stop obsessing. I also think a super tight-fitting waist would help ease some of your anxiety.

    the dress is beautiful and you are a slim woman, unless they sewed an extra 30 + lbs into the lining there’s no way a dress could make you look fat

    If you’re fat, then I am Jabba the Hutt. I think you look awesome! If you’re worried about it, though, you could have the seamstress shorten your dress to just below knee-length. What you might be seeing is a shortening effect on the legs, which that length of dress gives to EVERYONE. Shortening to tea length would solve the issue, but again, I think if you walked down the aisle in it just like that today, everyone would absolutely love it.
