@Mrs_U:  The sweetheart neckline looks really great on you. And the waistline is very flattering and it seems to show off your curves really well! I actually didn’t even notice the dropped waistline until I read your caption. Maybe it’s the lighting in the photo? I think if you’re feeling unhappy with the dress, you should try on a few more dresses to see if you like something else more! But I think the dress is very flattering in the bust and waist, and looks very clean!

@Mrs_U:  I personally really like the first dress. Even though it’s simple, it flatters the curvature of your body, making it a real statement! What a classic dress; you’ll be thrilled you decided on that dress in 10 years 🙂

@Mrs_U:  I really like the Monique Lhuillier, it shows off your shape well and frankly you look MUCH happier in this dress. The other dress you purchased is a little TOO simple and plain.

I’m not a huge fan of the horizontal band below your hips and I agree that it draws attention down and can make you look kind of short. I think adding a belt at the natural waistline would draw attention up and even out your porportions. I like the simple flowiness of the dress, it’s very classic. I think the multi-directional rouching on the second dress makes it busy and draws attention away from you, so you picked the right dress.

I love the dress you chose a million times better than the inspiration.

I love your dress. So often I think that simple is better. Understated and elegant rather than over the top. I think with some jewelry you will look absolutely stunning!!!! Plus I think your dress is so different because of it being simple, so that actually makes it stand out among so many dresses where there is just so much going on. I really love it.

The dress you bought is beautiful. The fabric and the simple lines of the dress are gorgeous and allow you to stand out.  I’d add a great belt to it, perhaps like the one you tried with the second dress.

@Mrs_U:  To be honest, the dress you bought does make you look shorter. I really do prefer the ML, since it gives you fantastic shape and does make you look taller. 

Perhaps try a belt with the first? Dropped waists on ballgowns can be hard to pull off. A belt might help break up the bodice.
