ok --- i posted earlier saying my dress was a mess. so i took it to a seamstress and she is helping to fix it with me. i have my first of many fittings with her yesterday and i am having super mixed emotions......
first let me show you the dress (please ignore my funny looking face i was talking..and the part of my butt that u can kinda see in the lace up-ha!)
so i love the back. im concerned because the seamstress wants to remove the privacy panel (which i LOVE the idea of doing this!!) but i'm concerned because i NEED to wear a bra. the seamstress is thinking she'll be able to get my dress to fit me perfect and i won't need one--but i'm a D and i'm really not comfy going without a bra. so---backless bra suggestions needed!!!!! she will obviously sew up the back so my booty isn't showing.
My concerns with the front of the dress-
1) the entire top just feels super "boxy". I'm a thin person with a super lean waist--and this dress just doesn't do my figure justice yet!! now--I know this is the first of many fittings--but i'm wondering if maybe i can have the boning and built in bra/corsette thing removed? it just doesn't feel like it is snugging my figure enough.
2) i need your opinions on this. i feel like the torso is too long? maybe its just because it doesn't fit me yet...but this part just seems "fluffy"? like it isn't laying flat? i hate that. is looks that way in the back too a bit....but it bothers me more in the front.
3)this stupid neckline is driving me insane. i want CLEAVAGE!! my boobs are one of my best assets and i want to show them off. i asked the seamstress about doing a deeper sweetheart neckline and she is concerned because of the beading. honestly--i don't give a crap if the beading gets removed--i really want some bood showing!! what do you guys think? i just don't feel sexy in this dress yet.
keep in mind...the seamstress hasn't cut anything yet. she has taken it in-but has just hid it inside the dress until we get it fitting a bit more...so that may add to the boxy-ness of the torso--but still. and she it taking it in about 1/2 inch more on top and the sides.
uuuggggh i just want to feel beautiful and i don't just yet and it hurts my heart...
