    Wow.  I think you look….absolutely beautiful.  I don’t see any torpedo boobs – they look like, well, normal boobs to me!  I think when you have decent-sized boobs on a thin frame with a strapless design, the boobs tend to just look more prominent.  Not bad, it’s just that there’s no hiding them, you know?  And I think they DO look better/more balanced in the after photo.

    As to looking pregnant..are you serious!?  You look gorgeous!  Did you have in mind a really tight/fitted look?  It’s not tight around your abdomen- is that what you wanted?  Cause the look you have going now is soft and flowing and romantic.  I especially love the back, and really, the bow looks to me like it just needs to be retied.  

    Maybe try to stop thinking about the dress for a day or two, then come back to it.  I know it’s easy to obsess, but I really do think you look great  🙂

    Your dress is gorgeous and I love it!  Seriously, I over analyze too. But it’s perfect.

    I think it looks gorgeous.

    @Quickiebee:  I’m honestly not seeing the problems you described. The bust does not look pointy/topedo-esque. Nor does the waistline make you look pregnant. I do love the addition of the lace up back. 

    But the most important thing is: are you COMFORTABLE in it? You talked about the bust not fitting correctly, can you raise your arms and dance around without spilling out? If that’s a problem and cannot be fixed, that would warrant a new dress. 

    Otherwise, it’s a gorgeous dress and it certainly looks perfect to me.

    your dress is gorgeous and looks amazing on, to me the only thing is it looks like it’s sitting a little too low on the bust and waist. can you hold it up higher and have someone lace you into it a little tighter? I think that would really help.

    I think it looks amazing!  You absolutely do not look pregnant, and I don’t see any torpedo boobs either.  I also couldn’t find the spot, but it is just a photo.

    Take a break from it for a little bit.  You definitely want to feel amazing on your wedding day, but you might just be too caught up in it right now.  Give yourself a little space and then regroup.

    i think you look great – but if you don’t FEEL great – try and find a solution, even if that’s another dress. you could always wear this dress as a reception dress

    @Quickiebee:  I think you’re crazy!!

    You are absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! I love love love the new back, and the front is just as beautiful! I don’t see torpedo boobs at all, you just have larger boobs on a very petite frame (so totally not a bad thing! haha). I think the ruching on the front is lovely, and you do not look pregnant in the least!

    I think it’s lovely, ethereal, elegant, and beautiful all in one. And you have a stunning figure!!

    The dress is stunning and so flattering. I don’t see any of the things you’re nitpicking about. I love the alterations!

    @Quickiebee:  What dress is this? I think I have the exact same one (purchased at Demetrios, but I can’t remember the designer). I added a Swarovski crystal belt to give it some pop.

    In other news: you’re being crazy, you love lovely and I love what you did to the back! It is seriously the most flattering dress and now I can’t wait to wear it!

    I literally cannot see ANY of the problems you’ve mentioned. You look v ethereal and the dress is so beautiful and diaphanous. Maybe you’re overthinking it just a tiny bit!

    I’m going to be brutally honest…. I genuinely think it’s lovely! I love it! I love the bust and the back, and if you hadn’t mentioned ‘torpedo boobs’ I never would have noticed and doubt anyone else would either. Can’t see the foundation stain either.
