    MadameX:  In case i’m getting them mixed up, I say a BIG FAT YES to the middle dress (with beading all over) it’s absolutely beautiful!

    I like the “new” dress best but I lean towards more intricate beaded gowns. Since you do not seem to be completely in love with either you might wanna keep looking.

    I like the last dress it looks lovely on you.  The other two are nice especially the second one.  I think your real problem is that as a bridal consultant unless the dress is made out of sausages or something then you are not going to find something you haven’t seen on a lot of others already.

    you need to find a dress you love on you and then work on accessorizing it your way.  i don’t think you should try mixing together different dresses and you need to remember that your guests won’t have seen that many dresses as you.

    So you’re just adding more beading to the first dress and removing the pickups? So it’s kind of like dress 3 but instead of the belt it’s got heavy beading on the bodice?

    i don’t have a problem with customising per se, but I am a bit concerned that the pleats/ruching plus the full bodice of heavy beading might be too much or make the dress look disjointed. I’d like the beading more if it flowed down the dress so it fits with the lines if the ruching.

    So because if that, I think I prefer the Allure. It would probably be a harder dress to pull off though – you’d need to have the right figure for it.

    I have to say I can’t decide which one until seeing you in the new dress yourself. The ruching is very flattering on you, so I see why you went that route. But I must say, that Allure dress is AMAZING. It’s giving me some dress regret here…

    MadameX:  That middle dress is stunning. I’m hourglass/pearish too and I think you need curves in a dress like that! Admittedly you would want to make sure your stomach was relatively flat given there is nothing to hide it at the front so I get your concern but I think you look great now so with the weightloss you are planning too I think it will be fine!

    MadameX:

    Judging by how you look in dress 3, the La Sposa (I think), it’s more likely that the ruched style is more flattering. You would know yourself that some lace dresses are really good at defining the waist – and you have a really nice waist to show off – and some of them just sort of hang there.

    Looking at the C288, I’m not sure about it. Particularly the waistband of beads, which would need to hit you in the right spot or it’s going to look odd.

    Do you have the option with the customisation of putting the beading wherever you like? I can’t find exact photos to show, but I think if you are having a ruched dress, the beading would look better at the bust, waist and skirt, or bust and hip, like in these dresses (I hope you understand what I mean).
