Now I have more stuff to talk about with my sister about this particular wedding dress.
I agree that if it is bigger half a size or a size, the hooks won't pull too much.
Also, if te dress is bigger a bit, the armpit area won't bunch and wrinkle up sooo badly.
But I still wonder why they go for a watteau, if they're going to pin the whole thing down to the waist anyway.
I get that they want this whole seamless look at the back of the dress, that goes from the neck to the end of the train several meters away, but there's problems with the sides of the dress and how piled on everything looked.
Wouldn't it be nicer to make a faux plaque for the back if they want to put a backboard there, and then a detachable train from the waist?
