I don’t think it makes you look too young, but the design makes your chest look kind of big (I have the same issue, so I’m self-conscious about it). I think it’s the sash.

You seem to be slouching in this dress.  Are YOU not comfortable in it?  Maybe try on a few more to see if you feel more confident?

It’s a lovely dress, but I agree w/ the PP. It looks like you’re slouching in it.  How do you feel in it?  Can you see yourself saying I do in it? If not, keep trying on dresses. I hear that finding the right dress is almost like an audible click!

i had the same thoughts about the chest area looking really big… but i understand how that can be a challenge, i am also big chested ;). now that you say it was too big i understand why i felt like i saw the dress more than you, YOU are the bride after all. I think that deep down, you know if this is the one. when i picked out my wedding dress, which was almost the opposite of what i originally wanted (i wanted poofy fairytale, i ended up with fitted mermaid-ish style), just invisioning walking down the aile and my fiance seeing me in the dress brought on tears, my face was red like a tomato lol, at that moment, i felt i knew this was a dress for me. i agree with a more fitted dress, that one or any other one. you will be a beautiful bride 🙂 you will know whats right for you hun

You look beautiful. I would go with a single layer long veil, though. The short layer of the veil is competing with the bodice detail and making your body look shorter than it is.

I noticed the slouching, too. If you choose this dress, I’d be aware of how your body looks when you put your hands in the pocket. It might be different when it’s in your size, though.

I love this dress on you, I think it’s very flattering and not young looking at all. It’s actually a kind of classic shape and with the long train, it gives it an elegant feel. No young look at all to me. 

Just hold your shoulders up well when you pose for pictures would be my only advice to made you look more poised and mature.
