@MrsHernandez209:  Hmmm, not sure how it would look more “puffed out.” While the dress is not my style, it does look nice on you. I like the bodice and where the belt is located, I would suggest keeping it there. I love the top, but if you alter it just right, it will probably look fine.

ETA: Whatever you do, make sure it is because YOU want it done and that YOU like the finished product. It seems like you may have been pressured into buying it and even now your Fiance is weighing in on what he wants it to look like.  I am not saying ignore people, but you have to wear it, so your opinion matters the most. Be sure to stick up for what you want!

@MrsHernandez209:  I think your dress is great! I think the skirt is really pretty but the front looks odd in this picture. However I bet you it will fall better with a slip/crinoline and steaming. 

The only thing I don’t really love is the belt placement. It could look different once the skirt flows out more but I would mess with it and see what you like more!

I would not make the skirt bigger, but I would try it without the belt. I think the shape is great on you and the ruffles are so fun!!

Very flattering!  Just make sure you are comfortable and happy with it in the end.  No need to worry about what others think right now.  All that matters is they will all see you as the most BEEauitful bride they have ever seen!

@MrsHernandez209:  My dress is very similar to yours but not as much detail (ruching) at the top and not as defined a sweetheart neckline. I would change the belt and I would NOT add a slip. It looks great on you!

You look great in the dress.  I understand dress regret. I bought one after an entire day of shopping for dresses.  Everyone said how great it looked.  I was exhausted. It didn’t look bad at all (it was the Kitty Chen Charlotte).  I usually look at photos of me in the dress before I decide on it but I was so tired and swept up in it all that I forgot to look at the photo my sister took and I bought the dress!  About 3 hours later I went into panic zone..drove to my sisters at midnight and looked at her photos.  Wrong dress for me.  It was really pretty, but it accentuated things I didn’t want accentuated.  I went into the store as soon as it opened the next day and asked for a refund.  They didn’t want to give it but I said “the order hasn’t been placed..cancel it”..so they did.   Don’t let yourself be pressured ever.  If you don’t like the dress, see if you can swap it or get a credit or something.  If they weren’t going to let me out of mine, I was just going to eat the deposit and be sick about it, and chalk it up to an expensive lesson learned. 

I think you look great in the dress from the back and the front! You seem to have a longer torso so you can carry this dress!  I don’t really like the way the belt looks in the front..maybe because it is thicker than in the back?  I think you look really good.  Small alterations can do wonders though.  What is it that you don’t like about it?

If you added more fluff, it would make your waist look really tiny!

Obviously the choice of dress is entirely up to you, and I think the front of it looks great but (and this could just be my hatred of ruffles speaking), the back of the dress looks like a chiffon vagina.

@MrsHernandez209:  I truly doubt that your fiance is going to stop the ceremony because he doesn’t like the dress you are wearing. All you need is confidence… and an iron. ๐Ÿ˜‰

OP your dress is pretty similar to my VW White dress:) I love it on you:) Just a good steaming and maybe a plain sash will do it some good or not one at all.

Your bust area looks fine ๐Ÿ™‚  If you want though, get those push up pads and it will add cleavage and I think the sweetheart neckline the way it is, will actually enhance that.  I played around with your belt digitally lol..I think it would look really good lower on the waist. Please excuse your skirt..I wanted to see how fluffy I could make it.  I love your dress.  Also please excuse the very rapid enhancement..it is not my best work. I just don’t want you to agonize over dress regret like I did the other night. I was in tears.  You really do look great!

I’m totally distracted by the skirt. I feel like it gives you an odd/asymmetrical shape. I find the back of the skirt to be the most unappealing part, it’s too much. I hardly ever write “negative” comments, but I think there’s a better dress out there for you. If you love it though and want to alter it to suit your tastes better, then rock it!

I think the belt across the mid section was making you focus on the bust too much.  The belt looks great in the back where it is, but I don’t like it in the middle on the front.  The lower belt draws the eye down.  I think if you use push up pads to make yourself feel better about the top (although I don’t think you need it)..I think you will be happy with the dress! I’m pretty sure he will love it.  The lower belt elongates your torso even more so you can carry a full gown.  How tall are you?
