    I love looking at dresses online – not in person.  I bought only one.

    no dress regret.  no Fiance regret Smile

    Love my dress 🙂  Oh wait- well, technically a friend of mine who got engaged around the same time bough a bunch of super cheap e-bay dresses so she could try them on & resell them if they didn’t work out.  I did try on a few of hers, mostly for fun, but still kept my original dress.

    I tried on 5 dresses total, bought the very first one and never looked back. I though I may have been getting dress regret but never even thought about looking at more dresses. I tried my dress on when it came in last week and any forming dress regret disappeared. 

    I think people may just end up confusing themselves if they keep looking!

    In my head the title reads like one of those radio ads, “Are you or one of your loved ones drinking more than 37 drinks a day? Are you finding that it’s affecting your life or your chances of finding a job? Call us for a confidential study and treatment program, yada, yada, yada…”

    @MrsFeatherbottom:  I think I tried on over 50 dresses.  I had a few “maybe” dresses that were out of price range, and if they didn’t require alterations I might have purchased one.  Some of them were my friends getting me to try on mermaid gowns and other silhouettes.  I obliged, of course, because sometimes you never know what will look good once you put it on.  I have wide hips, and no boobies, so mermaid dresses and trumpet gowns just looked, I dunno… too clingy?  I couldn’t sit in some of them!  Meh.  It was fun to play princess/dress up, but when I found my a-line with lace trim & a beaded bodice, I was like “SOLD!

    I couldn’t bring myself to buy the first dress I liked – because I didn’t “love” it, but couldn’t find anything else I remotely liked. I took a break for two months and started looking again, then found one I loved! Haven’t looked back since.

    I work in a bridal salon and cannot help but to keep looking. Every season when new dresses come out there are atleast one or two that I fall in love with, however, I have stuck to may original  Summer Royale. That may change when I see the new pink Divina!

    The dress I bought is the only one I saw that really struck a cord with me. Even when I see other dresses in passing,  I think about how much more I like my dress for me. Right now I’m more stuck on thinking about how I might like to accessorize, but I am already way ahead of the game and I have plenty of time for that.

    I bought about the 8th or 10th dress I tried on (but tried them all on during the same salon visit) and I did have pangs of dress regret. I kept looking at one specific dress online, which is actually very similar in style to the dress I bought, but would have to come from a Chinese knock-off boutique as it’s a long-discontinued style that would never have been in my price range even if it were still available… and eventually I weaned myself off of the kock-off website because I didn’t like how much second-guessing I was making myself do.

    I did have dress regret and I badly wanted to purchase a second but I didn’t.
