You’re stunningly gorgeous and will rock that gown on your big day! What are you doing veil-wise?

What a fantastic gown; you look wonderful in it. A good bra will make it look even better. Congrats on the great find!

You look great in the dress, and I would leave out the strap, capped sleeves, and the flower.  I think it looks great just the way it is and you don’t want to draw attention to the areas you are self consious about.

I agree with everyone else that the right bra will do wonders.  Also, in the forward facing pictures, it looks like you are hunched forward just a bit.  I only notice it because I was doing it in all of my dress pictures too, so I have been super conscious about posture lately.  Make sure you pull you shoulders back, especially when they are lacing you up, and hang onto the dress when they are tightening the corset because that can pull it lower unintentionally.  Those things should make a big improvement as well.  I love the dress.  The pleating on the skirt is so cool and pretty!

I think you look stunning in that dress. I agree that a good bra and the corset tied how you want it, will make you feel better.

Remember that you are your worst critic.


On boobs, rock them girl. If I had even a 1/4 of them I’d rock ’em, coming from a flat chested girl 🙁

Don’t worry!  The right undergarments will completely change the look of any gown and create a perfectly supported shape.  You will look great!

I had the same fears with my dress, I found adding a hoop to my skirt made me look like i had an awesome hourglass figure. So my suggestion is to try a hoop underneath!

The dress is gorgeous! You do look great in it. That said, it looks like it might be sitting a little too low. Having the correct bra might fix this on its own, but have you thought about converting your neckline to a halter?It would provide a little more support. You have a big bust like my best friend–she had to switch to halter for support reasons, and when she compared the Before and After pics, the halter was the clear winner: It turns out that the dainty little spaghetti straps were actually making her boobs look much BIGGER. And since I get the impression you might want to minimize them a little bit, might give that a shot. (it would also allow you to wear a halter bra, which is great if you’re anything like me and find that strapless bras always slip down and have to be continually readjusted.)

I think you look very pretty! Just a little nip in the waist and the dress will be prefect!
