I think the dress looks beautiful on you!  It really defines your waist and flatters your figure.  It does look like it sat a little higher in the first picture… I think what you said about hoisting it up a little before lacing it up should help.  I wouldn’t worry too much though – you look great in both pictures!

I really like it!!!  I actually like it better without the veil covering up your shoulders… it shows off the neckline better  =o)

It’s a beautiful dress & looks great on you! But I think I can see the uncertainty in your face in the second picture.  I do like the first fitting better as well but I don’t know why. Does the second fitting look kind of tight to anyone else?

I think it looks pretty much the same height, is it possible just laced too tight in the second one? You’re beautiful and the dress is beautiful but the second one looks a teensy bit more…squished maybe? I’d support the girls alternatively like with a strapless bra or something else inside and independant of the dress so you can lace the dress more confortably. Teensy almost imperceptable difference only noticeable but us OCD gal’s (it was passed down by my Dad, yay genetics). Also, the veil is probably softening the first pic alot, so maybe that’s the difference too. I definitely wouldn’t regret the dress though! It looks great!

I agree with @LucyLaLa – it does look a little tight at the 2nd fitting. I would discuss your concerns with your seamstress – if you do figure out what exactly feels “off” there is still plenty of time to try and correct it!

Your dress is beautiful and you look amazing in it!

@LucyLaLa:  I think that’s what I’m seeing too, not super tight but not as nicely fitting as the first one.

I agree with PP, it just looks a little tighter in the second photo. Who ever laced it up for you was just a little to enthusiastic 😛

It looks gorgeous on you, their is no need to worry (though my sister has OCD too, so I know that even if their is no ‘need’ to worry, your gonna do it anyways :P)

You will look like a million bucks on your wedding day!!!

I think you look gorgeous in your dress. It compliments your figure quite nicely!

@ethorn13:  You can also add loops to the inside of the dress to thread your strapless bra through if you’re worried about it showing 🙂 I’ve seen other bees do it and it seems like a great, simple, easy solution.
