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?

I think you look gorgeous! But what do you think?! You didn’t say, and you look a little bit scared in the dress, so I’m afraid you don’t love it. Please tell me I’m wrong!

Just to add: You have such a tiny waist, hold your bouquet a little lower so you can show it off. Right now the broaches are blocking the narrowest part of you!!

@LittleRiver: Oh, I absolutely love it! I just had a scared look on my face because I was concerned about the top fitting correctly. I’ve never for one second had dress regret with this dress 🙂
@MrsRugbee: Thanks for the tip! And also thanks for the compliment about my waist. I know the bouquet is something I’m going to have to be conscious about. I’m holding it lower in the second picture if you look in the mirror. I also don’t want to hide the band that embelishes my waist as well.

You look so pretty! I know this is a Casablanca dress. I was a Casablanca bride a few weeks ago and I LOVE their dresses. You made a great choice!
