I have been through a long process with this dress being made for me, having designed it myself. I’ve been through my struggles, doubting the train length, neckline etc. as some of you may have helped me in my other threads. At one point a big chunk of lace was even taken out of the neck and it was completely reconstructed. (See my previous thread if you are curious to see it before that: https://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/help-me-figure-out-why-this-dress-looks-like-it-doesn't-fit-me-properly/ ) But now it is all done.
I will be going back in a few weeks time, just to try it on once more before the big day so if I really wanted anything else altered I possibly could, so would really appreciate some strangers opinions. 🙂 Do you think it fits me well? I am happy with it, the only one thing which niggles at the back of my mind is that I feel it is possibly a tiny bit too snug at the lace above my bust and it might look like there is a little armpit bulge? You kind of have to zoom in to properly see it though!
Overall what do you all think?

Your dress is gorgeous- the third picture there that fully shows your train and veil looks like something out of a wedding magazine.
I don’t notice any snugness or underarm bulge, it looks like it fits you well- but if it feels a bit too snug on you where the lace is at the top of the bust, if possible to alter this without hurting the overall fit/ look of the dress I’d do this, simply because you want to be comfortable and not worry about it ripping if it feels a little too snug.
But absolutely gorgeous dress, Bee.

I think that the change in the neckline made a huge difference. I don’t think you need any more alterations at all. You will be a gorgeous bride!

It’s very beautiful! Looks very similar to mine so I think you have great tast! I am wearing a bridal belt at the waist to give some definition, and I think you would look good with one too. This is mine and I love it.

Beautiful. I hope you don’t add a ‘bridal belt’ as a pp suggested. The only definition that dress needs is what your body has already perfectly provided!

The dress is stunning, and you look amazing in it! I second that you certainly don’t need to add a belt.
