So I made a blog post about a month ago about what a nightmare it was to order a cheap wedding dress online. Well after an additional $1,000 it’s finally back from the second seamstress.
I really like it now, but because I’ve hated it for the last 6 months I don’t have a clear prospective of what it really looks like on me.
Below are the three phases that the dress went through with the bottom one being the most recent.
And finally the finished product

It looks good on you. Personally, I think it looks a little nightgown-ish.

The slit and material of the skirt makes it look like a nightgown 😬 but it still looks way better than it did before! You have a great figure though.

It gets skimpier and skimpier! Way better than the first. Do you love it? It’s very far from the dress style it looks like you wanted — long sleeve, long skirt.

It does look better Bee, but I’m not loving it. The material of the skirt looks a little thin and unfinished for me. If it was a heavier satin or more structured I think it would make a big difference. Maybe if it the skirt even had some tulle to finish it, and the existing material be a lining?
You do look FAB in it though! I love your vision, but I’m not quite sure if it is complete yet.

I think you look great in it and it is so unique which I love! You won’t look like every Allue/Maggie/DB bride out there.

It looks a whole lot better but I’m still not really a fan. Firstly it still look unfinished, with the hem and the seam at the back.
Secondly, I don’t know – it looks more like a dress a bride would switch into later in the night so she can dance, with the slit and everything. Doesn’t mean it can’t be worn as a wedding dress. But that is the impression it gives me.

You wear it well, but it looks like a fancy nightgown 🙁

You have a fantastic figure and anything would look good on you, including this dress. The dress itself though, I don’t like.

It is kind of surprising that you turned the dress into something it seems you originally didn’t want (low-cut and strapless). I’m not a big fan of the thin satin, the puckering down the back seam and the negligee look, but I do agree that you have the figure to carry off almost anything. I just think you could do a lot better.

You have a great figure. Honestly I like the phase 1 version best. It looks like the top of the dress needs more structure – the 3 pic is way better than the 2nd, but even in teh third it looks like it is not supporting you enough. However, I am very modest in my clothing and would not be comfortable with so much upper body skin exposed. I like strapless better when they are hiked up a bit more….

Agree with PPs. You have an incredible body, but I probably would have just spent that $1k on a new dress rather than try to salvage this one. I don’t mind the top so much (although the U shape in the neckline seems quite wide and makes your girls seem miles apart), it’s the skirt that I’m really not digging. It looks cheap and like a liner. I like PP’s idea of putting tulle over it (so it’s actually a liner), but I don’t know if more manipulation would do more harm than good at this point.
Does it photograph differently than it looks IRL? Maybe if it comes off more polished/refined in person.
