I don’t think you look like a cow in it! It’s perfect for a casual/outdoor wedding.

Are you planning on wearing a veil with it?

I like it, and you do not look fat at all. What if you add a sash or belt? It would accentuate your waist.

It’s a VERY pretty dress, and you look beautiful.  You should be very proud of your weight loss!

To make the dress a little more figure-enhancing, I would have the alterations person deepen the neckline to a sweetheart.  Opening up the chest area is more flatterring on a bigger busted lady.  Also, I’d  add a belt at the waist to define that area… maybe in a colour that coordinates with the colours to be used in your shoes?

@MissNoodles:  Ouuu! I second the sweatheart neckline. That’s a great idea. And very flattering on most girls!

Congrats on the weight loss! Your dress is soo pretty.  I also agree with the other girls thought in having a sweat heart neckline.  Maybe find another seamstress that can do it.  You can ask any tailor shop if they also do wedding dresses.  Does not have to be at a bridal shop.

I was actually suprised when I saw a wedding dress in my tailor shop for work clothes.  I thought only bridal shops did that work.

Hey I just noticed we are date twins!  I haven’t even tried my dress on for the fitting.  It just came in a few days ago!

Sash would be great! You look gorgeous too, by the way. Just think you will have your hair and makeup done too and that makes a big difference when you see yourself in the dress. You look great I think! Congrats on the weight loss too, by the way. I am 25 pounds down 🙂
