I would love some help. I fell in love with my wedding dress when I bought it, but it was 8 sizes too big. It was clamped in the store and I thought it looked great, and was assured it could be altered. Many fittings later, I am not super thrilled with how it turned out. I have no fashion sense myself, so was hoping that maybe some of you could suggest to me alterations for my seamstress to work on. The image on the left is how it looked clamped on the day I bought it, and the one on the right is where it currently is. I am aware that the lighting was better in the first picture, and perhaps the angle was more flattering as well. Any recommendations, especially using technical language, would be greatly appreciated!

The right actually looks a lot better to me, including the lighting. On the left the top is droopy and its bunching in the middle as a lot of wedding dresses seem to do. Looks like both issues were fixed on the right. FWIW I think it looks great on you. 🙂 Is there anything specific you don’t like?

What are you unhappy with? It looks fine to me. Maybe a little puckering under the arm but I think that’s just the position. It looks like maybe the waist was tighter when it was clamped and gave a more narrow shape?

I think the one on the left is just at a better angle. Turning sideways 45 degrees will generally give you a slimmer silhouette than head on. I think your tailored dress looks gorgeous and flattering on you. I don’t think this is necessary at all but since you asked, would you like the line of the lace covering your arms/shoulders to be more veritcal? What i mean is the lace over your chest tapers over your shoulders. Do you think it woud look more like the left picture if it went straight back, instead of angling? I do think you look lovely in your current dress 🙂
