Very pretty bolero!! I honestly think that the one in your actual size looks better.

I see what you mean about your waist being higher in your dress, but get it steamed and see how you feel.

To answer your question-Yup! You’re crazy. Your dress looks great!

You look much smaller in the dress that fits.

The dress your size looks perfect to me! I think the larger one is a smidge baggy…

The correct size looks much better on you.  I think the sample size pic is just in more flattering light, like you said, which makes it look softer against your skin tone.  Love the bolero too!

The waist is higher on the size 10.  It appears to be at your natural waist.  Evidently that is where it is supposed to be.  The size 16 had more fabric thus making the waist lower.  Your size simply fits you better!  : )  BTW, your bolero is fabulous!  It goes perfectly with the dress!

Once the dress “settles” I’m sure you will feel better. I think the one in your size looks better!

I think the dress that fits looks better. But only if I really scrutinize the differences. They don’t look too different. So, have yourself the $$$ and hastle. Get your size! lol

Yes, your actual size looks way better! You’re drowning in the bigger size. Your dress looks great!
