- Wedding: November 2012
if we can pull it all together, we opted to move our wedding elopement to 13 days from now vs 3-5 months from now. I have tried on about 12 dresses and I like these the best. as of right now, I must find a dress that doesnt need any major alterations. let me know which dress you like (NOT the sash. I am sold on it no matter what) if you chose to comment on which you like, please tell me why.
I am a very rectangle shaped/boyish figure. I am a mom and 37. i feel like I am not curvy at all so was looking for something to make me look fuller. as you may see in a couple dresses, my chest looks very flat and I am hating the bone sticking out between the boobs making me look flatter… so I am stuck on what dress to get. (the J crew one is a impossibility at this point even tho its been my favorite fabric, color and weight on. it need major trimming at the bottom and its really hard to find in the size I need cause its discontinued)
this is a remarriage for us both so I asked FI to come with me to help take pics. he is fine with whatever I get BUT i asked his opinion obvioulsy.
$99 dress. very flat in front so I need to not gain a pound. (also this is a 4 and need a size 6 to fit in my back chub) I like the front but the back has funny seems down it and its not pretty. I can turn the sash to the back tho for pics. for an elopement its comfy, fits like a glove but its a skinny dress. no volume. FI thinks its ok. he’d prefer something more full.
I hated this in the bag but on, i dont need any bra in it. it makes me feel skinny and like everything is in its place. the length is perfect and nothing needs to be fixed except the ugly bow to be taken off *which i am hiding with the sash. my FI doesnt like this dress. says its too foofy. its $250!!
the galina I have been googling over. I like it but not in love. the fabric is really icky to me. not smooth, and its heavy. the top cuts into my boobs making them flatter. but its flowy and gives me shape. it may need a tad bit of a hem. the bow has to be cut off. FI loves this one on me. I really love the back of it. its comfy to sit in.
the dress I have always wanted but refuse to pay $1K for. it need a HUGE hem and I am not crazy about the deep gap between my boobs, also smushing them down. not sure what bra or anything I could have worn with this. the back was not as flattering to my wide chest. plus side, I LOVED the feel of the fabric and it was comfy.
and just for fun a 5th dress i also liked that was $250 and needed seam work. this was a size 10 and I need a 6 so it was really hard to get a good feel for it. if I got this i would not want the bubble on the bottom. I would just have them press that flat.i was afraid I could not sit in this dress (forgot to try it) and i could not gain a pound or wear a corset. again didnt try it BUT the fabric was a silky smooth taffeta that I loved, the price was right, it had the detail I wanted… FI said I looked like a cha cha girl. yet he liked it a little.
