Help! I dont like it :(

First of all.. I have to say my experience so far with dressilyme has been wonderful! The customer service and the communication was great and they did everything I asked.

Well the dress is beautiful and you look great in it.  But I do know how you feel, my dress doesnt seem to have as much shape as I would like with it, seems like it does not quite hug my curves like I hoped.  But I have decided its still great and beautiful (especially with the price).


Do you have enough time to have the dress altered a lil bit?  But even if you dont you do look gorgeous in it.

I forgot to ask, did you have your dress done with custom sizes or did you choose just  regular size?  The more I look at the picture I do deff see the difference between the first one you tried on and the one from Dressilyme.  Don't get me wrong I still think its GORGEOUS and you look very pretty in it, but yes deff bigger and not as form fitting as your first one.


I vote maybe try having it pressed first, maybe when it lays flatter you'll like it more?  Hopefully.

Hey! Thanks :) I keep looking at my dress and I am honestly SO happy with the quality but I am so sad it doesnt fit how I was expecting. I didnt feel "thin and beautiful" like how I did when trying dresses on. ..


BUT I can also get it altered. I have 4 months till the wedding so I am just going to hold on to it for now. For $150 dollars I am really not going to complain :)


I actually just ordered another dress from them.. that is more aline land body hugging ike the one I tried on.....


 


Id like to see a pic of you in yours!!!!!!!! it's so pretty :)

I will get a pic of myself in it as soon as I can find someone who can lace it up for me lol.  I have tried (obviously not very successfully) to lace it up by myself, but we all know that is pretty much impossible.


I'm not from up here and the only one I know who can help me lace it up is my fiancee (and he doesnt want to see the dress).  Thinking about putting it on and the draping a sheet over the front of me so he can just see the back laces LOL.


And thats great that you have so much time yet til the wedding.  You can have it altered no problem at all.  And yep at $150 + alterations still much cheaper then most dresses.


Let me know when you get your second dress :)

You do look very pretty in your dress but I can see why you are unhappy with it. It's a little bit more loose on the hips. You still look skinny :)


Do you have a pic of the new dress you ordered?

This is the new photo 2959955-1


 


This is the new Maggie replica I ordered. I think it will be more hugging to my body. I actually just ordered a standard size as they are fairly close to my measurements, just slightly larger and the length is actually perfect. I am pretty tall and I ordered a 60 hollow to hem on my first dress just to give me the ability to hem it if I needed too and its just a bit to long. Standard is 59 so I am again hopeful it will work out. I am going to get the first dress altered and probably use it as my "trash the dress" on the Vegas strip afterwards.


I have calmed down so much from yesterday.. I knew that this was potentially going to happen but you just think that its going to be perfect and when it's not it's dissapointing lol.

Oh and sorry.. my first dress was custom measurements but I measured myself! I measured my hips as a 36 and that dress needs to be taken in like 5 million inches to fit tightly around my hips. In the picture the dress hugs her all the way down to her hips


Oh and sorry my photo 2959967-1


 


But now when I look at this dress compared to the new one I just ordered I think the new one is more the shape of the dresses I tried on at the store.

Anyways we shall see :) I am still having fun with all of this.


 


xoxo Ladies!! Candi

lol Thx Candi!!  Yeah its a b*tch being so far away from my friends and family.  Maybe I should post an ad on Kijiji for some chick to help me lol.


And the new dress you ordered is GORGEOUS!!


I'm starting to have some issues with my dress the more I look at it :(  But oh well it will have to do.  I can't afford to get another.  I still love how mine looks its the color I have an issue with.  They did my jacket in the light champagne color (which is what I wanted) but did my dress in the regular champagne. They still look perfect together but my dress color slightly resembles nicotine yellow LOL.  My fiancee told me to have the whole thing dyed black LOL (which was actaully a thought) but I don't want all of the "Gasp, omg what is she doing wearing a black dress" talk lol

I think black would be awesome haha.... Ive seen it a few times and I am always so proud of those brides for being so confident!


I am thinking really positive about my new dress :)
