Also, it looks much better now.

@Ambience:  Oh, thats terrible! It does fit much better now. Once you get an insert it should look much better!

Have you or are you going to wear some type of slimming undergarment? those can take inches off.

Wow!!! Well done for losing so much weight!!! That is fab! πŸ˜€ Can I just say that the dress looks amazing from the front, so there is no worries there. I would think that getting a bigger modesty panel would sort the problem right out. Also, I would think about making it a feature – you could get some realyl nice ribbon and cover it with crystals etc/ pearls to make it into a feature and then it will be the reverse affect if that makes sense? Seiously all you need is a different modesty panel and you’lll be more than fine! You look amazing from the front – it’s just changing the panel xx post us some more photos when you’ve got it! x

@Ambience:  Congrats on the weight loss! I think the wider laces will make a really big difference in how the dress looks in the back by making the wider V look intentional. You really shouldn’t worry about covering your back with the veil. Your dress will turn out just fine!

It looks good! With the modesty panel behind the lacing, it’ll look totally fine.

I used to wear corsets and have a bit of advice as to how to tie them up for maximum effect!

Tie them with the bow in the middle.

The way this corset is tied, it doesn’t pull in at the top as much as it could, and that might help a bit πŸ™‚

Also – the best way I found to tie my corset was to loop the laces around a doornob and walk forward until it was tight but comfortable, and then tie it.

Congrats on the weight loss πŸ™‚

Congrats with the weightloss! What an inspiration you are. That is really amazing!

I think the dress looks stunning on you. Like others said: with a modesty panel in the right size & wider lace it will look stunning. The seamstress might be able to take the dress out slightly. Ask her to take it out so there will be a perfect V-shape in the back. As far as I can tell from the pictures you need to take it out ever so slightly at the waist (but not at the lower part of your waist). 

I work at a bridal shop, where we have one floor reserved for outlet dresses. You have to buy the dresses there as is, so if we don’t carry the perfect size, we’ll make do with what we have, with some fabulous resulsts. Bigger modesty panels are an easy and stunning solution, so you’ll be fine and your dress will be as gorgeous as you are on your wedding day.
