I’ve decided to sell my Ella Rosa BE123 gown, and have narrowed it down right now to two Allure dresses, each of which I like for different reasons.
Which looks best?
1. Allure 2456
It’s satin and modern. I love the sweetheart neckline and the “rose” look to it. It feels very “bridal” to me.
2. Allure 2459
It’s organza and flowy. I fell in love with the bodice, which has little roses and pearl detail, although I wish it was more of a deeper sweetheart. I tried it on in my correct size, but somehow the back seems “off” to me? As if it’s crooked or flat and not the same as in the model photo? Wondering if the size I have on is maybe too small and I’d need to order a size up, if I chose this one?

@basia: I like the organza better. It’s beautiful and flowy and gives you a lovely shape. Very feminine and romantic. I agree that something seems to be a little off about the back, but that’s what alterations are for 🙂
The satin seems sort of off around the hips. I can’t explain why. Maybe it’s too busy? There’s a lot going on there with the sash and the ruching and the asymmetry.

I think both dresses look beautiful. But I voted for 2, because if you are not happy with you Ella Rose dress, number 1 reminds me a lot of that dress. So wondering if once it is your size if you will not be happy with the look again.

Key, I had the same exact thought, which is why I drove all over the city trying to find the 2456 in the closest possible size to me. The last photo of me in the dress is a size 10, which is one size up from what I would be (an 8). It definitely is similar to the Ella, but I love the fullness of it and the fact that the flare starts higher up, so the dress is more comfortable and hides some bum area I’m not too happy about having fitted 🙂

I like the first one, but without the belt. They are both stunning though. You can’t go wrong!

If you think this dress is closer to the fit you would want, then I say go with dress 1. That is obviously the look you are going for since it is similar to the one you ordered before, and since you went all over trying to find this in the closest size. I don’t think you could go wrong with either of these dresses. As I said they both look beautiful on you, but I think you will be happier with dress 1. Good Luck!

I like the organza better. It looks great on you, and much more comfortable than the satin one 🙂
