@Quickiebee:  really??! I haven’t seen anyone else with it! I ordered it without even seeing it in person and loved it! It was too big even after sizing but it was perfect for our wedding!

ETA: your dress laced up in back? Was that a change you made? Mine zips. I love yours ๐Ÿ™‚

Maggie Sottero Kendra! Wouldnt have tried it on based on the model pic but the salesperson brought it and I was in love as soon as I was tied in there. I plan on getting a crinoline sewn in, and also wearing a slip for some more fullness. ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow great thread! I found this really helpful and I think all you REAL women look better in your dresses than the photoshopped models.

@Chrissy26:  you looked absolutely amazing! That’s funny that you ordered it without seeing it, I did too! I am in Italy, so when I saw it online, I called up the store near a friend and she picked it up and sent it to me. It was absolutely perfect. I got it fitted here, and yes, I had the back lowered and a corset closure put in.  lacing it up worked well because lowering the back meant it had to be really tight, and in the end, i love how it looks. i love it to death. I also added a gigantic butt bow. ๐Ÿ™‚ it really is a great dress, and it certainly looks amazing on you.

Please excuse my expression in the 2nd one LOL – it’s the best photo I have of the dress from the front to compare with.
