    It is a little hard to see in the second picture, but I prefer the look of the second picture. I wouldn’t add a thing. My preference in general is less tight fit and no belt. Love the beautiful details on your dress!

    I did a belt and liked it. I feel like it still needs altering so that it lays more smoothly or maybe have it steamed?

    As someone who fits clothes for a living, the dress in the second picture is way too big in the waist, which you can see in the fabric folding/collapsing below your natural waist line. It definitely needs to be taken in and reshaped along the seams to create the curves you can see in the first photo. Also, construction and fabric on wedding dresses is much better quality than everyday clothing- I wouldn’t worry about any tearing/ripping unless your dress is very fitted and delicate fabric like chiffon.

    It looks too big, so I say have it taken in.

    If the second picture is after all your fittings you need to get a new seamstress. You do not need to leave that much space so you can sit down, that’s ridiculous. Find someone who knows how to properly tailor the waistline to your shape and you will be able to move, sit and still look as good as you did with the dress clamped.
