So I posted a few weeks ago and got great advice about two Lazaro dresses.
The majority loved 3003, but I found myself secretly wishing everyone would love 3819 (that’s how I knew I loved 3819). But I still wanted to try on other dresses. I now have three very different dresses and I love them all! My mom, best friend, and FMIL are flying down in two weeks to help pick/buy the dress, but I don’t want to be a crazy mess with indecision when they get here, like I am now. Let me know what you think. I’m getting married on the beach in the Florida Keys. I’d love some objective opinions. I want a dress that flatters me (I’m around 5’3″) and has a romantic feel. I’m going to post pictures of the three contenders.
The first dress is my original Lazaro. This dress is WOW in person. I’m just not sure if that the detail will reflect in pictures (lighting was really bad in the store) or if it’s the best for my shape/size. The bridal salon has assured me that they will be able to alter it into more of a sweetheart so that’s not an issue. I’ve grown to love this dress, but I’m still indecisive.
The second dress is from Essence of Australia (the pic is of the model b/c they wouldn’t let me take pics at the store), in person the dress is much more beautiful. Also the sleeves/ jacket won’t be on the dress (they are an add on on in the pic). This dress has everything (shape, style, lace, sweetheart) that I originally wanted.
The third dress from Kittychen is nothing like I thought I wanted. I tried it on for fun because my friend wanted to see me in it. As soon as I put it on she started to tear up because she loved it so much (and trust me, she’s not the sensitive type). I felt beautiful in this dress, but I’m scared because it’s not what I thought I wanted. But I loved it when I put it on and had a WOW feeling. (This one can also be altered into a more defined sweetheart).
Let me know what you think. All opinions are greatly appreciated! I love all three!

I think you look gorgeous in all three but the last one is my personal favorite. I think its unique but still has the classic elements. You have a great figure and will look gorgeous in whatever you pick!

I liked Lazaro 3819 best in your first post and I still like it best. It looks best on you and the quality looks much nicer. The last one looks like it has too much going on imo, a bit thrown together.

You know I’m a fan of the Lazaro 3819…But I really like that second dress as well. Because of the corset top it may be more flattering on the body, especially knowing how they’re having a hard time fitting me into my Lazaro. You said 3819 is a sample right, thats a few sizes too big? So you could possibly have similar complications. Mine fit better when I tried the store size 10 and was all clipped into it, but in the size 6 it’s just not hugging my body the way I want. The material is just too thick and it doesn’t show a good hourglass shape. Since you like the mermaid look and the lace, the second dress might have everything that you want.
I’m not a big fan of dress 3. I know how those ballgown dresses do give one the wow feeling because they’re princessy and glamorous…But I agree with @veganglam, the quality seems inferior to the others. I like the lace parts but not the taffeta in the skirt and the bust.

I still like #1. It just seems to suit your body so well and I love the detailing.
#3 is pretty, but I think the fitted style of 1 is more flattering. #2 is my least favorite-I don’t think all of the details work together as well as in the other dresses.

I really really really like #3!
The detail on the bust enhances that area; I love how it’s super fitted low on the hips and then it flows. To me it looks much better than the other two, more flattering and more comfortable, too.

go with number #2 (the Essence of Australia gown). meliss’ advice is right on!!
Yes, number #3 is pretty, but if it’s not what you initially envisioned, you will always have doubts.

I think you look amazing in the Kittychen dress! And also, considering that you looked great in the mermaid silhouette of the Lazaro 3003, I think you’d look so stunning in the Essence of Austratlia.

I personally love the lazaro on you. Hands down my favorite! If I had your body I would totally rock that dress.
Post # 12
The first and second picture are the same dress right? Because I think they look GREAT on you! That is my favorite of all of them!

The third one is the one that looks best on you! Don’t be afraid, I too wouldn’t think I would want the dress I bought in the end. If it looks stunning on you, buy it, whatever the dress LOL What’s important is that it looks nice!!!!

i vote for dress # 1, but I’m biased because dress # 1 is the same shape as my dress and I love the shape!

without reading the other comments i will say that i love the look of the first dress and the detailing i find beautiful even though that’s not something i’m usually into. however, i do really like the second dress as well…and if you are concerned about your height, the seamlessness of the second dress will make you appear taller. the third dress is a no for me. good luck!
