- Wedding: June 2014
When I picked out the dress, I knew it was THE ONE! But when I got home and looked at it on the model on the website, I didn’t like it at all. What scares me is that the dress I tried on in the store is a size 12, and they measured me as a size 2.
My biggest area of concern is up top. I am self conscious about my bustiness and tops tend to make me show more than I’m comfortable with. We are having a church wedding and I want to be modest – showing very little or no cleavage. I love the look of the sweetheart neckline but I thought it was out of the picture for me because I couldn’t make it look modest. But I loved this dress on me because I feel like it looked modest.
But what if it only looked modest because of all the extra material since it was a size 12?! They clipped it of course but still .. she is showing a lot and it almost looks like it’s falling on her. I plan on dancing a lot at the reception and if I was showing that much just standing there, I feel like I would be scared to dance .. constantly yanking my dress up. And worse, in all of the candid pictures, I could see it looking very inmodest. It drives me INSANE.
Also, I feel like it makes her upper half look very elongated. Just very uncomfortable. I just don’t like the way it fits her and this was I’m sure fitted to her perfectly. What if that’s exactly how mine fits me when it comes in in a month and a half?
Do you think that it will fit me just like it fits the model? If so, do you think there’s anything a tailor could do abou it?
Thanks for reading my lengthy freak-out-moment!!
