I am purchasing a very light-weight lace wedding dress that is incredibly perfect and everything in a dress I want, but also made out of breathable and comfortable materials that I love. And, I sweat easily, so being very content and comfy with the material and shape of the dress would really help! I am wearing lace cap sleeves (I don’t like my arms, chest, and back being completely bare).
I’ve heard people say the most important thing about the dress is to feel like yourself but also to be comfortable. So Bees, tell me about your dress and your experience(s). Did you feel comfortable? Or not? Or in-between? What do you define as something feeling comfortable or not? Just really curious about how you feel/felt in your dress…Thanks, Bees 🙂
P.S. Feel free to post photos if that helps.

Mine’s a bit uncomfortable when the corset back is being laced up, but after that it’s fine. Probably by the end of the day I’ll be uncomfortable, though. I’ve only had it on for a half hour max so far.

Mine isn’t really light and airy, but it isn’t cumbersome either. Once I get rid of all the tulle in the skirt and make it more of a fitted A-line, I think it will be really easy to move in.
Also the material of the skirt is that very soft satin, so its flowy and not too stiff.
Here’s a pic:

@Jenniferk6: Thanks for the in-put! I always wondered about corsets, and they’re so pretty! Mine is a side zip-up.
@Evie19: Your dress is so elegant! 🙂 It does sound like it will be more moveable once you make those changes. Best wishes, it’s a beauty.

Mine wasnt very light when I was carrying it around but on the body, the weight distrubted well and it was very easy to wear. It was nice and snug so I wasnt worried the strapless dress would fall off like I usually am with other dresses. Over all, it was very comfortable like everyday wear, I didnt have to think about the fact I had a huge wedding dress on. Only pic I have on this is old, but here it is

Mine was very comfortable and lightweight, it didn’t feel like I had this huge wedding gown on at all!

Mine was really comfortable too – lightweight fabric, it fit just right and was really easy to dance in 😉

Mine is totally comforatable and light, one of my requirements since I was going to be travelling with it in addition to wearing it.

The only uncomfortable aspect of mine was the weight because it was so hot that day. The corset was fine and actually made it feel more secure.

my dress is snug, so when i first put it on it feels like i can’t breathe. While it’s on, though, it gets more comfortable. It’s definitely heavy, and before it was the right length my legs would sweat (which was gross!). It’s more comfortable now that it fits me correctly, so that’s something to take into consideration too.

@craftybridelovesnerdygroom: That’s a gorgeous dress!! I love the sleeves, so dreamy!
Mine is very lightweight & chiffon, so SUPER comfortable. My ceremony will be on the beach in FL so comfort was a must for me!

@pinkshoes: Oh my, how gorgeous is your dress! That’s great it fit snug so it wouldn’t fall!
@dolphi99: Yes, it looks beautiful! Glad you were very comfy while still being a bride on your big day!
@totheislnds: Very sweet and romantic. Happy you were able to do everything from walking the aisle to dancing in your dress.
@MASPA: Wow, it’s so elegant, reminds me of a goddess! That material looks so silky soft! That is perfect for traveling.
@nicolethegrrr8: Lightweight is good news. And it’s so beautiful! Glad you were secure and comfy on your special day.
@pinkandsparkly: That’s great you and the dress adjusting to each other! Sounds like alternations do play a huge role in maximizing comfort/size since everyone is different. But I’m sure any discomfort is worth it in the end for the photos, etc. I would love to see a photo of your beautiful dress if you don’t mind? 🙂
Thanks, ladies!! 🙂
