I like the Cici one the best.

If you decide to get the David’s Bridal one, make sure you get in writing about the alterations. I have heard that they like to over charge.

You still have a couple months before you have to make a decision, so if you aren’t happy with either one, you can still look around.

I like the Cici dress better than the David’s Bridal dress too.  My usual opinion is that one should never buy a dress that they can’t try on first.  I found a dress that I liked on a designer’s website and searched everywhere for it but I couldn’t find a single store that carried it so that I could try it on.  I ultimately decided to forget about the dress.

However, I think with that particular Cici dress there is nothing too outrageous that you wouldn’t be able to make an educated guess on whether you would like it on yourself or not.  You obviously aren’t in love with the DB dress and if you feel like you are going to struggle finding something perfect for you in a store, I think you should take your chance on the Cici dress.  You could also just go to regular dress stores (non bridal) and try on some dresses with similar silhouettes just to be sure.

That Cici dress is stunning! Do you know about the return policy for it?? If you end up hating it, you still have time to find something else!

I think the Cici dress is beautiful.  But also a friendly word of advice, Davids Bridal is notorious for saying anything to sell a dress, bought my dress a year ago during a sale they said was ending that night.  Turns out the sale was still going on months later and is still going on now.

I don’t know… I am weary of purchasing clothes without trying them on first.  It seems that you have a few months left to search for your dress.  I think you should try to find a dress with that has that similar design of the Cici dress before you order.  I know that it can be tempting to buy things when there are sales, but I think with a purchase like this you should be absolutely sure before you order anything.

Ah yes!  I remember you psoting this a while back!  It’s a beautiful dress!  Any chance the Etsy seller could send you pics fo the dress on someone, so you have a better sense of what it could look like on you?  Also, stores constantly have sales, although I know it’s tough when something is happening *now* and you’re worried it won’t later.

Can you go to a regular bridal shop to look at mermaid gowns?  They also might have different sizes in store for you to try on than David’s.  That being said I think that dres is completely lovely and I think would look great on a girl with curves!

I like the Cici much better but before going that route I would try to find another place where you can try on a similar style just so you feel more secure in purchasing the Cici online.
