The dress fit me really big but I had the dress altered, They did a great job! Had the dress dry cleaned bef and after the wedding... the dress is flawless! It rained on my wedding day so u can just imagen the bottom! It was covered in everything!! Everyone loved my dress!! I pictured this dress in my head and I’m so glad I decided to order it online even tho everyone tried to convince me not to lol as being a plus size girl I had such a hard time looking for what I wanted locally!! The veil was pursed online as well but not on amazon!! They fit perfectly together!! I loved my dress!! ❤️ Everyone said it was diffrent and beautiful!!
First this dress was tall, it was designed for someone about 6 feet. If you decided to shorten this dress you cannot cut from the bottom because of the lace design therefore I altered creating a slight bubble effect. It pulled up the dress several inches giving me the ability to walk freely without pulling on the edges.
Second, it was also designed for someone who has shorter arms. I had to add approximately three inches of fabric around. If you look where the purple lace stops on my sleeves that is where the extra fabric was sewn.
Finally, this dress came with with see through pads that were supposed to conceal your breast however in the sunlight the padding shows. There is no lining to conceal the padding. I had it altered by removing the original breast pad and having a thicker white breast pad added along with a white lining to conceal the pad therefore no bra was needed.
