So after going back and forth back and forth in an endless war of Dress Regret, I decided to go back to the boutique and try on the dress once more – but before I did, I asked if I could try on Jenna by Maggie Sottero, as I had been eyeing that dress for a long time, but never tried it on as I was afraid my curves would just ruin it.
I AM SO GLAD I TRIED IT ON. This dress, although WAY too small (the sample was a size 12, and I’ll need to order a size 16 with my HIPS!) fit my curves like a dream. It put all my best features front and center and I feel like such a special bride…I just came to life in this dress and I feel amazing!
Here it is..
and the amazing train/back:
I am beyond happy with this decision…I’m so glad I embraced my ‘womanly curves’ and that I’m going to take a leap of faith and end up buying two dresses. Now I just need to sell the first! But this dress is SO WORTH IT.

@karo: thanks! yes, I’ve been growing my hair out for a very long time now…I’m very pleased with it! I’ll be dyeing it a dark brown for the wedding though, to go back to my natural hair colour. 🙂

You definitely made the right decision!
I didn’t really like this dress on the model or on many other thinner brides. But it looks like it was made for you. 🙂
And it is much better than any of the other dresses you posted here.

You look awesome! How long have you been growing your hair, btw? Mine’s only about elbow-length and I thought it was mega-long til I saw yours, lol.

You are beautiful and that dress really suits you. If you don’t mind, what size are you in street clothes? I’m also envious of your hair. How are you planning to wear it on the big day?
