I am getting married on 1st December, I got a dress online (always a risk I know!) and to my surprise, I do actually really love it, but I’m not really sure if it suits me?
I am looking to take the train off and get the dress itself shortened to my height. Other than that what do you ladies think? Please be completely honest….
If it helps I’m 5 foot 7 no shoes on in the pic and a size 14/16. I will also have a better bra on and please excuse the unflattering facial expressions 😂

I think it looks good on you!! It could use a little more cinching at the waist, though. And I’d keep the train-it’s beautiful!

Ahhh thank you. I do really like it, everyone other than Mother-In-Law says it needs to be taken in a bit! The train is mega heavy though I’m scared I won’t be able to dance and I don’t like the bustle….. but it is beautiful to look at I agree!

The train on the dress is lovely! Maybe you can find a bustle style that you like! Your dress is beautiful 🙂 Congrats!

It’s a beautiful dress! I agree with taking the waist in a bit but it definitely suits you.

I think the sparkly waist accent is sitting a fraction low. I’m not at train fan. I think if you take it off it will feel better, less overwhelming. I wore a dress with a lot of fullness and no train. It was great.

The style of the dress really suits you! It’s like a medieval princess 🙂

observer : this is my thought! I think it isn’t at the right point of the waist, not that it needs more taking in.

Well I think you look great! I would leave the train alone ( when else do you get to wear a train!) What I would take off is that sparkly belt/sash . Never adds to an all lace dress imho.

I love it. I’m in a keep the train camp and get a good dressmaker to make those adjustments to make it perfect and do a bustle you like.

It’s a little loose in some areas but looks great on you nothing done minor altering can’t fix

Thank you ladies! I also agree about the positioning of the belt but I was wondering if it’s something that would possibly sort itself out when it’s shortened? Does anybody know because I honestly know nothing about dresses and alterations!
