I ordered this inexpensive Mori Lee 3124 replica online from DHgate.com. It came in today. I’m not sure if I like it or keep looking. It def had many modifications from the original. What do you think Bees? I was thinking about adding a sash to add some detail.

Honestly, I vote keep looking. It looks nice but doesn’t wow me. I think your dress is still out there! Or try a belt?

How do you FEEL in it??? That’s what matters the most–if you feel like a princess then it’s the one–take my advice, don’t try your dress on for a couple weeks (if you can afford that time) and then try it on later—make sure the stress of planning isn’t going to make you trade “the dress”–also, if you decide that after those two weeks it’s not the one–when you try it on it WILL be clear.

I’d like to see you in an a-line or ball gown. I don’t think this style is the best for you IMO.

There is something about the proportions of it that is bugging me. I think it’s that the dropped waist starts a little lower than it should, making your legs look a bit shorter than they are. It also could just be a weird angle in the picture though, it’s hard for me to tell.
Overall it’s a very pretty dress, and if you feel beautiful in it, that’s all that matters! Also, dresses look crazy different after alterations, which it looks like you might need a bit of in the bust area.

I think it looks good, but it does not look to secure in the chest area.
(Ie it is hanging lower than it should).

I think it’s gorgeous. What about adding a blingy sash?

I think it looks great on you and agree with adding a sash.

It’s a beautiful dress but I would keep looking. It looks off to me. The chest looks to be hanging lower than it should and the dropped waist is too low as well.

I also have a drop waist gown but I am larger than you. The cut is flattering and the dress looks nice I think you simply need the bust to sit higher. If you have a corset back then loosen it and pull the dress up, hold in the girls and then tighten. If it does not have a corset but a zipper I would have a corset put in, it just looks like it is sitting too low and is crushing your chest, I think it would look perfect if the bust was higher and not as tight.

That’s a cool dress. A sash is a good idea.
