OK…so my brain just pictures a lace gown for my wedding….BUT I haven’t found one that I LOVE on me. I don’t know if it is bc the samples aren’t my size or it I haven’t found the right gown. I love the Maggie Sottero Presca and Karena Royale in pictures but it doen’t have that same effect when I put it on. I actually think that in the pictures you loose so much of the lace detail. Is that just a cheap camera in bad lighting or does that happen with professional photos as well????? I was thinking that a lace over the light gold makes the lace stand out but then in some pics it looks WAY to gold…so I’m torn. If I get lace I want the detail of the lace to be seem in my pictures ya know!!!
I’d love suggestions on gowns that I may not have tried on. Like I said lace (alencon is my favorite!!), A line or modified A line , sweetheart neckline, prefer a corset back to help suck me in! I’m 5’8 and a street 12-14 and very insecure about my lower stomach so nothing too dropped or hip hugging. Budget under 1500 if possible but I could do a little more if it was absolutely THE ONE. I’ve tried on mostly Maggies with a few allure and mori lee thrown in.
Seriously would love and help/suggestions!!!!!! This is stressing me out!!

What kind of body type would you say you have? (Apple, pear, hour glass) Would you say you have a long/short torso or legs or are you evenly proportioned?

I’m pretty evenly proportioned…per the consultants..but my tummy is not well defined. My measurements were 40/33/42. I just have a bit of a lower tummy that I am very aware of. When trying on gowns everyone says that you don’t see it..that my stomach looks flat…but I don’t agree.
