I am on a tight budget, and I am trying to see if I am lucky enough to buy a sample, or from a sale.
I THINK I am down to a couple choices.
1. AA 1151
I saw an ivory one, but not sure how it looks in pictures. It looks darker than I had wanted. I am hoping to take pics next time I try on.
2. Private Label 1413
Haven’t tried this on yet, not sure about price either.
3. CasaBlanca 1827
I think the back looks a little bit messy, is there a way to bustle it?
I really like the lace, any other lace dress that you’d suggest?
Is this dress very hard to wear? Do you need to pull up the dress often?
For brides who wore this dress, did you wear a petticoat and bustier underneath?
Many many questions…..

Something fitted at the bust and natural waist and flows out from there down. This will make you appear taller and leaner and make your waist look smaller. Your natural waistline is around your ribcage just under your bust. Most people think the waistline is at their hips, so thought I’d tell you.
A tiara or detailed hairpiece and veil will draw the eye to your face and have an updo instead of leaving hair down will make you appear much taller. I am talking a lot about making yourself look taller because it will also help to make you appear leaner.
My other advice is to buy a bustier that you can tie up the back to pull you in and can take inches off your waist.
These would be ideal gowns, just to give you some ideas:
