I've just bought what I think might be my wedding dress. I'm 5 foot 8 and a size 10 to 12. If the dress were a couple of inches longer it would be absolutely perfect. But I'm a bit worried about showing my arse on my wedding day. Is there anything I can do or wear underneath it to save myself the embarrassment? something like leggings? Or am I going to have to go back to the drawing board? It's a mini dress length on me btw
lPretty dress, I think leggings would look ridiculous. Practice in front of the mirror how far you can bend in it. It may be more decent than you think. You may be able to buy a lace petticoat for underneath but only for an extra inch I would think.
I don't think you should go chopping up the dress and adding bits and pieces to it . It's really pretty and simple - well done you for spotting it - and I think any alterations would spoil it a little. Hopefully the tall option will work out for you, but if you're still worried, I would definitely go for a lacy slip underneath to add just a fraction of length.
Anyway, just don't bend over. Assign a minion bridesmaid to pick up anything you drop
