I think the shapelessness can be fixed by having a dress long enough for you to wear crinoline underneath. On the model, the skirt is fuller. I thinl once you have that, you’ll get the shape you want!

@lilybrambles:  They both are lovely gowns, but I like the Allure better. We have similar shapes and I’m pretty tall as well. My gown has the shape of the allure so maybe I’m biased. Maybe the Seamstress could make the sleeves of the allure removable so that you can take then off after the ceremony.

@lilybrambles:  I think the Essense dress is much more beautiful! I agree with Sally G above, just make it a little fuller and you’ll have the shape you want.

My dress is incredibly similar to the allure dress so I’m partial to that one. However, I think you look great in the essence dress and alterations will fix the shape.

Yes, you are being paranoid. That dress is fantastic.

I like the sexy look of the allure. The Essence of Australia dress is beautiful.  I think that no matter which dress you would’ve chose would’ve been a great choice. The back is to die for on the Essence dress…however, I feel that from the front, like you said, it’s rather shapeless. With your thin & tall frame, I would have that baby altered to a fitted mermaid shape like the Allure dress & then you will have the ultimate dress! You will have combined the sexy feel of the Allure dress with the beautiful look of the Essence dress! I don’t know what kind of hair you have, nor what type of style you are looking to do for your wedding. ..but I think you should try & mock the look from the Essence model. It looks so good with the dress.

@lilybrambles: this dress is really beautiful!  The front is groegous and everyone will see you walking down the aisle and gasp and then once you are past they will see the amazing back and the jaws will drop!  Once the dress is long enough and tailored to fit it will have that pop you are looking for.  Have you thought about maybe making the sleeves a thinner?  That might also help with the front.  By the way, I tried on the same Allure dress I loved it from pictures too but not being able to lift my arms was not ok with me, I’m a total hands in the air dancer plus the dress you got is so much more unique I think you made a great decision!

Hi @lilybrambles, by now you’ve had your big day and I hope it was amazing. I’m just starting the dress search for my Sept 2016 wedding and I love EoA D1598. Would you mind sharing how much it cost? Thanks!
