Are you wearing anything under the dress to make it puff out (can never remember what it’s called)? Could you wear the dress without it (if you do have one on!)

I can’t pin point it exactly…but something about the poofy bottom part of your dress is making it look unbalanced.

Also the angles of the photo are different in every photo. The reason you like the first one is because it’s a higher shot, which is usually more flattering.

Have you tried the dress without the hoop? For some reason I’m thinking the focus should be on your lovely sleeves/slim waist, but my eyes are drawn to the poofiness of the dress.

You look great in every pic. We are all our own worst enemies ๐Ÿ™‚

I dont think you look wider, but I do think you look shorter.

It’s the angle of the photo.   You look gorgeous so don’t sweat it!!!

I think you look beautiful and are probably just a bit nervous as it gets closer to your day

In the first photo, it looks to me like you’re covering up part of your waist with your hands. It looks more flattering (I use that trick to cover up my lovehandles in photos all the time). ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you remember what you felt like when you were at your fittings? Did you feel the dress fit you better and looked better in the mirror? Don’t use pictures to “remember,” because the angles, lighting, and whatnot all change and affect how we see ourselves. I would go with the cold hard facts–you lost inches around your waist! That’s great news!

Hope you feel better ๐Ÿ™‚ For what it’s worth, I think you look gorgeous in your dress, and very slim!
