You look beautiful! Just from the photos, I think you could ask your alterations lady to be sure it fits you well in the bust – it looks like it could be taken in a bit.

But for a more ‘major’ change, if you’re looking for something a bit more drastic, I think it would look so beautiful if you had them cut the sleeves off right along the sleeve seam. I think that wide-strap tank style would look great. It would show off those arms but still have the loveyly modesty that your dress does very well! 🙂 Just an idea – Good luck!!

I agree with the PP about the sleeves. I would also go a bit further and use the scalloped edge of the bottom of the sleeve to cover the seam.

I also think maybe you could lower the neckline and also make it a more obvious sweetheart. With the illusion lace over it you can get away with a bit more.

cpick:  Dress looks wonderful on you. Very flattering OP. I agree with taking the bust in a little more and making sure it accentuates that curve. With some bridal a jewlery and a veil, I think you’ll start to see it as complete. Congrats!

cpick:  the only thing ”off” is the sleeve length! Once you shorten the sleeves, It will look beautiful! IMO a cap sleeve or no sleeves would look best. I think it fits you nicely and I love the illusion neckline! (I have one on my dress too!)

The top half of the dress needs tightening so you get that hour glass shape. The dress can then get pulled in much better. I think the skirt is fine but for me I see the sleeves as an issue. It makes the dress look quite heavy on top. I personally would remove the sleeves just past the seams so you don’t get that harsh line where the sleeve meets the top of the dress. I feel your arms need freeing,  don’t know why. But other than that, beautiful dress.
