Holy wow!! First of all, congratulations on losing so much weight in such a small amount of time! You’re an inspiration to me; I’m currently trying to lose 30 lbs.

Ok, now onto the dresses… I love both of them! I love the mori lee the most though. Unfortunately I’m not going to be of much help on suggesting a specific dress like the one you described.. but just wanted to say that the first one is my fav! 🙂

i actually much prefer the first dress. I think it accentuates your small waist and is very feminine and pretty.

I lost 50 pounds (just prior to going wedding dress shopping) and I can definitely understand wanting to show your new curves and figure off! Even A-Lines that were not too full were too much fabric for me, I went with something that showed off my new figure and was still very flattering.

I like the second dress you have shown (the first is lovely too!) but I am too not a fan of pick ups. How about these ones:

Congrats on losing weight! Any tips?

 

i like both dresses, but I think the first one suits you better. Are you trying to lose more weight? Not that you need to, but if you do, you might want to wait to do alterations.

Wow, what a huge success! Congrats on the weight loss!

I tend to agree with the others, that the first dress is much more flattering as it really excentuated how tiny your waist is 🙂

Definitely the first dress!  I think it is timeless, while the 2nd is trendy right now.  You look great in it!
