Hi Bees, I previously posted for help picking a dress here and I really appreciated all the feedback. I think I agree that the dropped-waist A-line is what looks best on me. However, I was still having trouble committing so I went to look at the dress again in person. The two details I’m having trouble accepting are the color, which is too yellow for my preference but the only other option is white which looks awful on me. The other thing I’m struggling over is this side detail – to me it looks like a curtain pulled to the side to reveal another curtain (see picture below). I may be overthinking that part, but I was curious if you ladies have seen similar dresses without that side detail? I’m ok with the draping, just prefer without the vertical line “reveal”. I don’t want pickups (would look too similar to my cousin’s dress). I do love the ruching to the side but haven’t seen many dresses like it, most seem to be lace now. Oh and I would make the neckline more sweetheart in alterations, so if it’s a different shape neckline that’s fine. I would love any suggestions!

it doesn’t sound like you are happy with this dress at all. Keep looking

The dress you have on strongly reminds me of Alfred Angelo 2360, which looked AMAZING but just wasn’t me. It’s not technically an a-line, but it has that same figure-hugging shape and already has a sweetheart neckline, too!
The only downside is I think it might have the side-draping that you despise, although in the 2360 it is not so vertical.

It kind of reminds me of this one I tried on…although I don’t see what you’re talking about with the curtain effect…

@livcurious: The side draping, while I find very flattering on you, sounds like it doesn’t make you happy. Keep looking until you find a dress that makes you happy.

@LittleAnn That dress is amazing, who is it by?
@zumbaista I actually tried on the 2360 but there was so much bling on top I sort of dismissed it, may need to revisit that one.
@Bridey77 That Allure dress is gorgeous.
