I’m really glad I started shopping so early because I have been all over the place!!! Just see my previous posts…
We’ve finally narrowed it down to a style though… ruffled bottom with some sparkle on top. The dress that brought me to that conclusion was the Sottero & Midgley Topaz, but I tried on a natural waist dress that was on a mannequin today and I really am loving it more and more. Unfortunately I tried it on in the last 5 minutes of the appointment so we barely had time to judge it properly. But now that I’m looking back at the pictures, I think that shape is more flattering than the dropped waist of the the Topaz.
Obviously I need to go back… but I don’t think I could go wrong with either of those dresses, they’re beautiful – so I have decided not to try on ANY more!
So, let’s have a poll… which shape is better on me?
Topaz (but I’d definitely line that bodice, no flashing my guests!!)
Allure (it was too big and the salon didn’t have clips so I’m holding it, it’s also should be higher up on my chest I think)
I’m also really loving the pink/champagne color of the Allure. If only it would go with my color scheme….

I like the allure better, I agree with you that the natural waist is more flattering.

@kaw2be: Thanks! When my mom pulled it tigher on me and held it properly for me to see, my waist looked SOOOO tiny!

I think the natural waist is much nicer. The bttom of the Allure is amazing. I am kinda over the corset top…

The Allure is so much more romantic to me. It’s a beautiful dress and I can totally imagine it making your waist look tiny!

The Allure is AMAZING!!! I gasped when I saw it. Its looks stunning, the colour, everything. For me that has the wow factor and your figure looks incredible in it. Im really keeping my fingers crossed that you choose the Allure! Seriously beautiful x

Wow thanks everyone! I woke up this morning to a pretty clear winner! Next time I’ll be wearing it for more than 5 minutes!

I think you can dress up the Topaz with a sash if you have your heart set on it. The Allure is very flattering on you.

I prefer the natural waist. In fact, I had a sparkly top with ruffly bottom dress myself (with natural waist), so I may be biased, lol. But seriously, I think it’s more flattering 🙂
