@mrsmdub2b: In my honest and humble opinion, I think you actually look superb in that dress. It hugs your curves and gives you a really nice shape. Plus I really like the one shoulder. If you don’t love it though you should get on shopping as soon as possible, but if I were you I would keep that one, it is FANTASTIC!

Héy, I think the dress looks great!! And your body also!!  But how come they ordered it too short?? And to small? The should have ordered the right size for you! Now they are making it your problem, but its actually their problem!

Yes, I’d love to see more pics of other dresse, but just because I love pics of dresses 🙂

@mrsmdub2b: You can shows us the others if you like, but I think you look fab in that. It’s a hard one as you’ve got to feel excited about it no matter how many of us tell how great you look.

I was reading this not knowing what to expect since you said you don’t feel anything. Let me give you my honest opinion. You are rocking the hell out of that dress and look darn good. I LOVE the way it hugs your curves, makes your booty look good, and cinches in at the waist. The sparkle is gorgeous, the strap is an added pop of interest, and the ruffles at the bottom make the dress. This is the perfect shape for you, and you look absolutely beautiful and perfect in this dress! I can’t imagine a more beautiful look on you. I’m sorry you aren’t feeling anything. I’ve gone through moments of that before too. But then I remember how I felt in the dress. I felt hot and classy! And you my dear look hot yet classy!

Your dress is gorgeous! Seriously!! But if you dont feel good in it I guess you wont be happy on your big day. Is there something specific you dont like about the dress? I honestly would work with the dress you have rather than getting a whole new dress

That dress looks amazing on you! After reading your post I expected something way different, but wow, you look great!

I know a million people can tell you that and it won’t make you think any differently, but personally I would not get another dress if I were you, that one is beautiful!

You look seriously terrific in that dress. It’s definitely a ‘wow’ dress – I love the bottom! What are you looking for in a shoe? Maybe we can help! I was thinking in the 2-2 1/2 heel range initially, but ended up bailing and going for flats. There are definitely lots of gorgeous shoes that aren’t 4″ heels!

Also, remember that pictures in a bridal shop aren’t going to be the most flattering. I LOVE my dress on, but the crappy pics that I took just do not do it justice. Florescent lighting is nobody’s friend. Even still – you look awesome.

You look REALLY amazing in that dress! Seriously!

Have you taken any steps to loose the weight you said you need to loose?

I also think you look gorgeous in that dress! I love the way the ruching on the bodice hugs your figure, it is super flattering!

And unfortunately, the dress shop was right in telling you six months. Designers generally say 6-8 months for a dress to come in. It’s just luck that it happened to come in faster, and not something you can assume will happen again if you order another dress.

I say just relax, get them to let the dress out a smidge, and find some awesome flats to wear with the dress! You will look beautiful on your wedding day!

Girl you are rocking that dress, and trust me I am not just saying that! I believe its a nice fit and it accentuates your curves perfectly. Don’t be ashamed of them, embrace them! I love one shoulder gowns and this one is beautiful. Possibly just the stress of wedding planning and all of lifes other elements playing into your emotions, but I agree with previous posts that say you look beautiful!

@mrsmdub2b: Oh my goodnesss! I started reading your post and only scrolled down to see the dress when I finished. I expected to see something boring but I am being 100% honest when I say that your dress is stunning, and it truly compliments your body! If I were you I would be VERY pleased. You look very good in that dress. 

Perhaps there is another underlying issue… Are you sure it’s the actual DRESS making you feel this way? It can’t be your body either because that looks great too. I can’t stress that enough!
