    I am a very curvy pear shaped lady and when I went dress shopping I avoided anything like the allure gown but stuck with the kind of gowns you chose because the rouge and the sweat heart line really hug the curves. Then again, why don’t you try it on first ?

    @HopingtobeeMrsV:  i love your gown and i def think you should stick to it! at the same time it all honestly depends on what you want to look like as a bride since theyre both very different dresses.  the allure is classic and sophisticated while the maggie is fun and refreshing! im personally a fan of the fun ;)

    I would have concerns about the Maggie for anyone over a D-cup because it is quite low cut all the way round, including at the sides. This limits the kind of support you’ll be able to get from your bra. You’re also risking boob overhang or squashed boobs, which look horrible.

    So look at v-necks, and if you’re looking at strapless dress go for ones with a bit more coverage.
    I think the shape of the Maggie is right for you though. Either low waist dresses or ball gowns would show off your curves the best. You don’t necessarily need to wear an a-line as your figure is already balanced. So I’m not that keen on the Allure for you.
    Also look for features such as belts or draping which emphasise your curves. Plus i think with yout venue I’d prefer something without lace, maybe something a bit flowy. How about these?

    I love your gown.  To be honest, I don’t think the Allure would be a great fit for your figure.  V-neck thick straps are not usually for brides with big busts.

    I tried on the allure dress, and it didn’t even look nice on me and I am a size B. I am not sure how it would look on you. But if you’re concerend about the chest you have to try on allure 8956. It’s almost like the dress you want except it fits nicer. It looks COMPLETELY different on than it does in the photos. The photo they have online is pretty ugly. It will cover your chest. I am thinking about getting that dress because It made me feel and look beautiful. It covers the chest. Its worth a shot.

    if it helps to get it out your system then find it and try it on YOU not pics of anyone else. I had my heart set on different gowns based off pics and other Bees but once I tried them on they were a big NO especially since Im a DD.

    Hi! Allure 8965 is MY DRESS!! Once I had tried it on, every other gorgeous gown just didn’t give me the same feeling. I love it!! :) Oh yes and I’m a 36D, 5’3″.

    I have been thinking about getting this allure dress as well! Something just keeps bringing me back to it. Although I am small breasted, I am still not a fan of the straps on me because they make me feel very boxy. I found out for an additional $200, allure will make the dress strapless and raise the back on it! Hope this helps out a little bit

    @OnceUponATime:  Thank you!!!!! :D Yes!! I chose that belt, and the gown is gold!! I never in a million years would have guessed I would have chosen a gold gown, but there was no doubt it was definitely my dress!!

    @FutureMrsWells:  I love love love the open back! I knew that no matter what I wanted an open back for the wow factor. After all, for the majority of the ceremony that is what all of my guests will be looking at! Might as well give them a view ;)
