Don't cry! I'm sure a good seamstress in your area can help you make the changes you need to this dress. I ordered the exact same one from babyonline and had the same issues with the bunching of fabric on my lower tummy (I swear it looked like it was for a baby belly lol) but a seamstress here was able to fix it for me and I loved my dress afterwards. Mine also turned out a bit more trumpet than I wanted as well, I'm wondering if thats just how this dress is made?
I dont know if we are the same size, but I do plan to sell my dress after I have it cleaned (I took it into the ocean with me lol). I do hope you are able to have your dress altered the way you like though!
Speaking of babyonline, I just read a lot of the more recent comments about their customer service and I'm a bit surprised! They were super accommodating to me when I had my wedding dress made (I did ask for a lot of very specific things and was charged almost double though... little annoying but not a huge deal). Also ordered 3 bridesmaid dresses through them and was very happy with the work. When I decided at the last minute (3 weeks before leaving) that I wanted a reception dress, they even went out of their way to rush my order so that I would get it in time! I dont know if the person that some of you have been speaking to recently is just not the same person I was lucky enough to deal with (I was chatting with Sunny) but my experience with them was fantastic. Fingers crossed that their service returns back to excellent once their holiday is over and that you ladies get your dream dresses too

So for me #1 is that the hoop can be seen under the dress.
#2 is that it is now a trumpet/mermaid dress instead of an fitted-Aline like I asked.
#3 I can barely pull it over the petticoat they provided.
#4 I specifically requested to not have sequin but its throughout plus beading. The beading is very nice.
You all seem very educated on how to request specifics for your dress. This is what I suggested but I haven't received a reply yet. Do you think I am correct or should I add more, rephase?
Its bunched in the front and back but I feel once my legs can breath that I will be able to pull it down.
