So, I was lucky enough to find my pronovias dress at a sample sale at over 70% off the original price. It is from the 2010 collection. The description of this dress fits my “dream dress” however, I don’t know why I’m second guessing my choice. There is no question that I want a strapless, lace and/or organza dress with ruffles. This dress is made of lace and organza. The ruffles are lace and organza (alternating). My question is: is this the right dress for me?
Here are two pictures of me and two of the model. The dress is not fitted and clearly needs alteration. I wonder how it would look on me after the alterations and whether it would give me the hourglass shape that I want because right now I don’t think it gives me a nice shape. I also question the shape of the bust. Although you can’t see it well, the dress has a straight lace under the bust, so I wonder if I it would look better if I remove the organza portion of the bust and leave it with the lace or create a sweet neckline instead of what it has now. In these pictures I am not wearing a bra or any shapewear and I think my boobs look huge.
I am replacing the bow and placing a rhinestone sash, which is in picture #6 and I am adding some beading, which I didn’t think I would like but after trying beaded dresses I now love. Prior to choosing this dress, I did try a bunch of dresses at Pronovias and kept coming back to this one. What do you think? Do you like this dress? Do you like the bust?
