Were you able to take pics of you in each dress?  I was so hung up on a certain shape of dress and it looked bad on me (hippy) and so looking at pics of me not looking as good in that shaped dress vs. the dres I bought and looks good on me really helped!

-Good Luck

I totally get that – I wanted more of the trumpet/mermaid style and it just made my hips look enormous where as a drop waist modified a-line really slims me down.  I think that if you keep thinking about the fact that that dress just didn’t flatter your figure like your dress does that it will help 🙂

Not looking at pics of your “dream” dress might help too 🙂

I wish I knew what the solution was, because I have the same problem! I still drool over my dream dress, but I tried it on and I looked 5 sizes bigger than I am. So I totally get how you are feeling!!

I think that it’ll help to recognize that you are comparing a reality (the dress you bought) to a fantasy (the dress you tried on). Remind yourself that in dreamland, the dress is exactly what you want and fits you precisely but in reality–which is where I presume you’ll have your wedding :)–the dress is what you want, but it’s not doing your figure any favors. And you don’t feel comfortable wearing it–to me, that’s a major red flag.

The right dress is the one that makes you feel good in your own skin.

I am in the same situation. I love the dress I bought but… I cheat on it and think about “THE” dress I rejected.

I don’t know if we will ever get over it so to speak. I picked my dress because it looked better (it didn’t help that they had my size in the dress and it fit like a glove). If I had gone with the other one I’d regret it when I got my pictures I know I would (if I don’t lose the weight I want to).

I am trying to not think about the “other” dress and focus on how much I LOVE my dress (it is actually starting to work LOL). Good Luck!
