@jbbs1222:  I read through some of the posts on your other thread, and honestly..I think you have made up your mind! You clearly want the dress, it fits your vision, you feel great in it. Just order it and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks!

If you know what you are getting and the thread was long, then you know what people genreally think. It seems you just want the attention.

@jbbs1222:  Why aren’t you getting the one your actually trying on? I tried on so many dresses and I can tell you that the bodices can make or break a dress. Some are too flimsy or not structured in a flattering way. There’s no way I would have bought one online.

Oh and in the pictures where you are wearing the dress I like the first dress better than the second because the bodice looks like it is puckering between the boning.

I like the dress on the mannequin, but I think it might be safest to buy one you’ve tried on. I wouldn’t take such a risk with a wedding dress.. I won’t even buy pants online lol.

What is the dress on the mannequin is thousands of dollars over budget?

it’s a great dress– but the tulle puckers out at the hips. Giving the illusion that your hips are wider than they actually are. To counter that, I would look for a dress with an even higher waist, the waist on this dress makes you look short as well. A higher waist would make you appear taller. 

But this is my HONEST opinion, if it’s what you want, by all means wear it, girl.

@jbbs1222:  I don’t think the dress is flattering.  It makes you look rather large, drowning in all that tulle.  Perhaps a non tulle version would be a better fit.  Just a suggestion.

@jbbs1222:  I’m interested to see the one you’re buying online once you get it.

@jbbs1222:  I think if your getting a dress for that cheap, it won’t have the nice soft tulle, it’s going to have the scratchy kind. I’d just make sure your able to return it because I tried on some of the lower pricepoint tulle dresses and they were not comfortable at all.

I am sorry I still think that style of dress is not flattering on you.  There are so many different types and styles out there.
