Okay so I went shopping for the first time. I wasn’t expecting to find “the dress” but I found two I’m pretty enamored with. However, I just keep staring at the line where the “dropped waist” is… Am I just being overly critical?

I think you can pull off the dropped waist. It looks poochy on some girls, but you look great in it.

I like it! But if you keep staring at it maybe that’s because you’re not satisfied with it, yourself.

Personally, I think it would bother me, but the dress overall is beautiful and looks great on you. Like ILikePink said it can look sorta pouchy on some girls but it lays nicely on you. The only reason you can tell is because the gathering comes down from there.
So basically I’m saying, yes it’s noticeable, no it doesn’t look bad or weird, but if it bugs you maybe that look isn’t for you.

It would bother me too… but it is very lovely.

I think you look lovely, and it is a pretty dress! But I know for myself, once I find something that bothers me, I’ll fixate on it. So while we can all think you look great, I would bet that’s all you’ll see every time you look at those pictures.

you are pulling off this dress wonderfully! it looks great! even the tinniest of girls look like they have a pooch in some drop waists (depends on the material) but this material and your thin frame is really looking great! congrats!

Thanks ladies. The reason it is so hard, is that my mom was in town (she lives in Florida) so I am not sure when the next time I’ll have her at an appointment will be, and I’d like for her to be involved, ya know? By The Way, here is the other one I’ve been looking at:

I think you pull it off beautifully! I didn’t like the drop waisted dresses I tried on so it was a deal breaker for me. But the way your dress has it is very subtle. Have you considered using a small crinoline under your skirt? It would stretch out the line/creases that your skirt makes to give you more of an a-line shape. I think doing so might make your drop waist almost disappear. Maybe you can use that when you try on the dress again.

I think it looks lovely.. i was expecting a huge seam at the drop waist with massive boxy pleats.. but this is soft and elegant

Get dress #2!. You look stunning in it! It defines your waist and hips better and honestly it makes you look 5-10 pounds lighter because of the cut. I tried that dress on two days ago. It is beautiful.

I think you look absolutely amazing in BOTH. So if the dropped waist really bothers you (I think it works for you and I personally really like it!) then the other one is an equally beautiful option.
