This topper is a great addition to my blush Annabelle dress. It gives my blush dress more of a bridal feel. I only had two issues with the topper that I am hoping my seamstress can fix.
1)The topper cuts into my arm pits a bit. I went to the store to have myself measured for size. My measurements matched up perfectly with the M. I do have broad shoulders and longer arms. I often wear tall sizes that have lower arm holes.
2) I think because of my broad shoulders the material pulls in the back and there are gaps in the material between the snaps. Very similar to a button up shirt that is too tight and you can see in between the buttons. I would size up but the bottom of the topper fits my torso perfectly. I am worried if I size up the bottom will be too loose and not lay flat. I hope to add a simple satin sash.
I am hoping that these issues can be solved with altering the arm pit holes and maybe adding additional snaps in the back.
