Your dress is so pretty! I think the way it’s done up in the picture is perfect. The shape looks really great on you.

As for under the dress, most bridal stores have different things you can try on. I have a very large chest (40F) and I have a bra-boustier underneath as well as a slip. It looks just like this picture:

I would definitely recommend pulling the dress up higher, which will help with the back and make sure you don’t have any girl slips!

I think it looks amazing on you! And congrats on the weight loss, I know how hard it can be. I would look for an alteration company, they should be able to take it in in places without touching the corset part.

The dress IS gorgeous! I agree with everything you said though– the dress needs to sit a bit higher, in my opinion, and the corset is too tight. However, I would THINK (not positive) that if you were able to do up the corset properly it would hold your dress up higher.

It looks like you’ve got lots of time until your wedding and you are losing more weight! (Oh I can only wish that would happen with me!) I would contact a seamstress in your area to see how much alterations would cost and how much time it would take to fit the corset back. I believe to fix the back they alter the seams at the sides of the dress.

My first thought was that it needs to come up a bit higher. I don’t think the corset looks like a problem but if you lose some more weight or the dress is falling down, I would look into possibly altering it. Also, keep in mind, it will fit different with a bra under it if you are not currently wearing one. Even though you have substantial “girls” I would suggest a bra with a bit of padding/lift may be all you need to make the dress a bit tighter and hold it up.

Wow!  You look Great!  I think if you are worried about slippage, it could come up a little higher.  Sorry I am no expert at bras.

I agree, I think you should try it again with it higher up.  That might help with having the corset a bit wider as well.  If it still laces too close together; you could take it to someone and have it taken in at the sides; so the corset will be wider.  It should lace up securley and feel like it’s holding the ‘girls’ in. You may not need a bra then.

OMG you are ME on the other side of the world I swear! The hair is exactly what I want too! I haven’t ordered a petticoat yet, I totally forgot and now it’s to late (or it’ll take longer to get my dress) I’ll figure that out soon though. What are your colors?? My whole these is fun flirty and sexy, yes, sexy, most will probably think it’s the tackiest thing, but I will have feathers, and zebra print and bling! black and fuschia. Thanks for the new pics, they are amazing, I am dying here, I just want my dress! My shoes will be fuschia abd BLING!!!! Feather bouquets etc.

 

I am going to order this veil as it has some bling in it, and might pass on a necklace all together, and go for nice earrings and a bling-y bracelette.

 

I found the shoes I want the other day, my heart litterally stopped and I tried them on, and it was like a cinderella moment! I will pick them up  next week hopefully!!
