I'm stressing A LOT - but, I need to try it on with someone else and definitely need to have it taken in - It just feels like its REALLY heavy.... Anyways, I will keep you updated - 2 months before my wedding, I was just hoping and praying that this dress that I never tried on before would go on and give me that "its the one" feeling I haven't had yet.... Definitely not the case... Eek!
I wouldn't worry just yet. Uhara is right, wedding dress can be extremely heavy and if they don't fit perfectly will definitely leave you feeling a bit frumpy...hence the mega clips they use to cinch it up to show a more streamlined and accurate fit. if it weren't for this no bride would ever feel beautiful in a wedding dress. I honestly think the fit has more to do with you doubt than choosing the wrong dress. The dress is beautiful and is cut almost exactly like the Maggie Sottero Adorae and I have never seen anyone look bad in that silhouette. Fear not just find a trustworthy seamstress and you will have the "it's the one" bridal moment. Keep us posted.
