I bough a Priscilla of Boston #4607 sample dress a few weeks ago but I feel sick about it now. I don’t think I generally like it anymore. Is this normal? It was the most flattering dress that I tried on at the store and I did cry when I had it on but I didn’t look anywhere else and I felt pressed to buy it the next day when I came back to try it on again because the store is going out of business and they only had one dress left. Plus I saved nearly $2,000 on it. My grandmother, mother, and nieces were there when I bought it and they agreed that it was “the dress” but I just have this sick feeling that I didn’t get the most beautiful dress that I could have. Please give me your opinions. I’m just sick about it.
Here’s a link to the dress:
I am 5 feet tall (I’ll be wearing 4 inch heels!) and I do not have big hips and I must say that the dress looked better on me that on the model on their site but what do you think about the dress overall? I have a gorgeos Swarovski crystal and silver broach that I bought to put in the center of the bow on the front. One thing that you cannot see in the pictures is that the buttons go all the way down the back of the dress to the floor.

Personally, I am 5’0″ and I would def wear your dress. It is a gorgeous dress! But if you really want to chance it you can always go try on more dresses to help ease your worries, but it could also backfire and you could end up finding another dress that you like more.

It happened to me too. I doubted my dress for a LONG time. I bought a sample dress too so I understand the pressure. But in the end you picked that dress for a reason! There’s something that you felt when you tried it on! I’m sure you love it, its just scary when you buy a dress w/o trying on a ton like other people and being able to go home and decide. But it will look gorgeous!

I think the dress is absolutely beautiful! I love that designer, but cant afford anything of hers. What a steal!
I do have to say though, if it feels wrong to you then maybe you should re-think things. I am in the midst of dress regret myself. Have you tried on any other dresses for comparison?

try to remember why you fell in love with it to begin with – from one dress regretful bride to anotehr i can tell you i felt the same exact way about my dress, i felt like i didnt look around enough even though i liked my dress enough to buy it – fast forward to my wedding day, when i was all done up with hair and makeup and i put that baby on i fell in love with it all over again. – unless you are willing to buy another dress i wouldnt search any more. your dress is really pretty! and im sure it looks wonderful on you!

I think it’s gorgeous!!!! I bought a Priscilla sample, as well, and saved over $8,000, and I couldn’t be happier!
Are you actually unhappy with something specific about the dress or do you just feel like you were rushed into it?

Do you have a picture of you in the dress? That might make it easier to give you an opinion on how it looks on you…
But fyi, I too second guessed my dress after I ordered it. I just pushed through it, though, and once she finally came in and I put her on again I remembered why I fell in love to begin with.

This is a beautiful gown! I’m also just a little over 5′ and would totally wear it. I agree though, is there a photo of you? That might help with this decision!

Its a beautiful gown. What don’t you like about the gown? Once you have your gown fitted to your body, you’ll feel the love again.
My Gurl was a Badgley Mischka sample that I got for over 85% off. I truly fell in love w/ her when I was @ my 1st fitting. I nearly tripped and fell on my A… cause I looked DAMN GOOD.

Do you hair and makeup all up, Take the dress with you to another shop, try on other dresses then try on yours! I just did this today and I am TOTALLY positive about my dress now! Definitely the best!

No…keep it! I think the dress is beautiful and incredibly unique! I think it will really flatter your petite frame and not many girls would be able to pull it off. I think that the broach will be a perfect complement to the dress. I think it is natural for you to have doubts since you were pressured into buying it, but I think that at the end of the day you’ve scored a great deal on a stunning dress.

I think it’s a beautiful dress! And if you liked it and cried when you put it on, you shouldn’t have dress regret. I think brides get WAY too hung up on “the one” when it comes to a dress, and forget that really, its just a dress. If you liked it to begin with and there’s no major issues with it that make you feel insecure AND it made you cry, that should be good enough.

I LOVE your dress – I think it’s beautiful and I love the silhouette. But I can totally relate . . . I have two dresses. I had severe doubts about the first – so bad that I couldn’t sleep at night and my wedding is over a year away! I fell in love with dress #2 online, and once I tried it on I knew it was my dress. I have no doubts whatsoever and can’t wait to walk down the aisle in it. I had to bring it to my mom’s house because I couldn’t stop trying it on! I honestly love it. So now my first dress is for sale, and as financially inconvenient as it is, it was well worth it for me. I have no regrets.
