Dress after altered

Here is my dress after alterations. I feel like it does not flatter my body. Wedding in 10 days, should I add something to it. Or do you think after hair and makeup it will come together. I'm also wearing pearls with it.

    Why don't you think it flatters your body?! I think it's perfect!!! I think you'll also feel better after hair and makeup! Smiley smile

    Can you tie the corset tighter? Just in the waist area.

    If you feel it doesn't flatter you, what do you think is missing...or needs to be altered?

    Pretty dress...btw.

    It's really beautiful on you! Where do you feel something is missing? I think you look great the way it is, but if you want a little something, why not a belt?

    If you don't think it gives you enough of a figure, which in my opinion you look awesome, try adding a belt. Not only would a belt highlight your tiny waist but it would bling up the dress.

    I love bling so probably biased

    I've had 5 kids and my boobs I feel like are not right in the dress. They sag I've tried about 5 different kinds of bras. Wish I did not do strapless dress

    Your boobs look great! There's absolutely no sagging from what I can see!

    You are your harshest critic, so relax and understand you look great! It may be hard to see but once it's all pulled together you'll look amazing! (Not that you don't already!)

    Would that happen to be a DB Jewel dress? If so, I have the same one so I obviously think you made a great choice Smiley winking

    Do you think adding a belt will help? I think you look great!

    I think it looks fantastic! Shows off curves and a little volume at the bottom. Gorgeous on you girl!

    It's a beautiful dress. If you want a little something extra, try a belt? You'll be beautiful regardless.

    Maybe you can add straps and you'll feel better.

    If you feel like you look saggy (which you don't at all---also 5 kids! you go!) is the waist and bodice tight enough? With strapless dresses, the waist and boning through the bodice is what holds the dress up--if its not tight enough, it cant do its job..

    the dress appears to fit in pics, and I think you look great! However, you should feel comfortable in the dress on your wedding day!

    ETA: now I see its a corset-tighten that sucker up through the waist a little more--also another trick my seamstress had me do--bend over and put your boobs into the cups of the dress then stand up holding them in place until your dress is secured on you---my girls looked great and way perkier than normal by doing this!

    Your boobs do not look saggy! Actually I am really jealous of them! The dress should hold you up, is the corset tight enough?

    Your boobs look great!! I never would have guessed you'd had 5 kids, your body looks great in that dress! If you want a little more waist definition, a belt is a great way to go. But you really don't need it, you look great.
