The dress looks wonderful on you! And actually, there are a TON of bees in the hive that have this dress! I even tried it on, although it didn’t make the final cut, it’s very beautiful!

@modernriot:  The sillouhette is fine, you need a veil and a necklace and maybe to alter the neckline so it’s less straight. Your body doesn’t look large though. Editing to add: after seeing the post above mine of her in the dress I think it needs to be tightened in the bodice it seems to be rounding on the side like it’s not fitted properly.

I’m not a fan of that on your figure to be honest.

@modernriot:  You absolutely do not look frumpy. At all. I think the band at the waist gives you a nice figure. I am pretty much always a fan of sweetheart, so I think that might look nice, but that’s just a personal preference. Furthermore, I think this dress is perfect for a beach wedding. It’s soft and flowy and not too over-the-top. You’re gonna look awesome!

@modernriot:  You look absolutely beautiful in this dress! Dead honest, you look neither frumpy nor huge! I would say NO to the straps and NO to the capped sleeves — THAT to me would look frumpy!! I think you look like a stunning bride as is. I agree that if you add a sash, or a brooch, and a necklace, this dress will instantly come alive!

Nope- you are definitely not frumpy! I have seen many straight necklines turned into a sweet heart. I think that would be a great idea for your dress. It would add an extra femine touch. 


Definitely not a fall back or safe dress for “big girls” I think it is a very flattering dress for many different shapes. Emprie waists are super flattering and elegant.

@modernriot:  I think it looks great and is not frumpy. If Iwasn’t truthful, I wouldn’t even bother to say anything.

@modernriot:  I actually think that dress is quite flattering on you =) What about altering the neckline to more of a sweetheart? I think it would flatter your chest more, I’m a 38D and I found Sweetheart necklines were way more flattering to my bust then the straight across.

Also you could look at having the back switched to a corset, it would support the girls more and define your waist a little more while still keeping the bottom flowy…

I think your dress looks really pretty! Add a few accessories and then you’re good to go! 🙂

@modernriot:  I don’t think you look frumpy. Your dress was my runner up dress, and even now 1.5 years after our wedding I still wonder if I made the right choice. I loved the flowy-ness of your dress.
