Just for reference, here are pictures of me in the sample gown, one size too small:
Aaaand here’s my actual dress:
You can see glimpse of my brooch bouquet in these pictures. My shoes are these lovelies (which actually are the PERFECT height so that we don’t have to hem the dress):
I had a slight moment of panic when my sister was struggling to hook the top hook on the back, even though this was a size up from the sample dress I had tried on. In my head I went “Well, I guess I will have to lose a rib.” Normally dresses are far to big up top in order to fit my hips, but this dress is the exact opposite and fits me perfectly through the hips, but is super tight around the bust. But the alrterations woman made a quick suggestion of removing the claps from its’ current location and moving it slightly higher on the illusion straps, which also help for them to lay better anyway. So problem solved!
What do you think, ladies?
