    I think your body looks similiar to the model’s.  I know that we are always harder on ourselves than others would be.  It does give you an amazing tiny waist though!

    you look great! I think if you take it in any more you might have trouble sitting/walking and you want to be able to do those (be comfortable!).  Plus, you look amazing and I think it fits just fine in the photo.

    Violete, I think the dress looks so lovely on you as it is! But really, it’s your opinion that matters more than ours—you want to be comfortable and confident and feel your best on your wedding day. Because it’s really YOUR opinion, I voted for “make it more mermaid-y” because it seems like that is what would make you feel happier. 🙂

    I think you look really good in it. I wouldn’t worry.

    I think it looks really freakin’ awesome on you! You are being too critical of yourself (a flaw I share with you!).

    You look great! But I do see how the model’s dress flares out more at the hem than yours does. I wouldn’t take it in because you might not be able to walk comfortably, but you could add a crinoline to make the dress flare more. Since a crinoline is usually a separate garment, you also would not have to get the dress altered again, saving you money. Look for (or DIY?) a crinoline that has its flounce primarily at the hem. Either way you’re going to look gorgeous.

    I second the idea of a crinoline. If the bottom were bigger, it would make your hips look smaller in comparison. Also, if your hips are what you’re self-conscious about, making the dress tighter in the thigh area is NOT going to help that! The dress looks great!

    I think you look gorgeous!  Looking at the dress on the model, it looks almost like it’s longer on her than yours is on you…it’s spilling out on the ground in the back of her and I worry that if you added a crinoline it wouldn’t give you quite the same effect.  It would “poof” more at the bottom but the length might be affected. 

    I personally wouldn’t make any changes, I think your dress is gorgeous and it seems to fit you perfectly!

    I think it looks great as is! Just don’t think about the dress again and when you put it on on your wedding day, I’m sure it will cause you to smile from ear to ear the way it did when you tried it on for the first time! 🙂

    **Add tulle underneath to give oomph, it will create a slim A line but with slight trumpet style
