    I think this dress is gorgeous!!!! If you have tried it on just not in your size, and you love it then I say go for it! It is somewhat similar to my dress which is also a size 14, and I think it will shape your curves very well!!!

    I love that dress!! It’s really gorgeous and so unique!  I haven’t really seen one exactly like it before. 

    I won’t say that I would NEVER buy a wedding dress without trying it on, but it would have to make one hell of an impression from the hanger and online pics.

    I have bought 5 wedding dress, never once trying them on 🙂

    I kept the ones I liked, and re-sold the ones that just weren’t my fit!

    If you have a sample size body, it works out great. Keep in mind most dresses need to be altered anyways…so just try and buy a size up from your measurments just incase

    When I went dress shopping, the first few dresses I tried on were too small and werent able to be closed in the back. I still got a good feel for how they would look on me regardless of this. The next dress I tried on was the first one I could actualy get zipped and as it lucked out I was the ONLY person to ever even try this sample on. So long story short, I bought this stock dress which was a size 14 and saved $$. Honestly, if you are the same size as me and you LOVE this dress, I think it will look beautiful on you. It reminds me of my own a lot so here is a pic that might help yo envision what it will look like on you! I hope it helps!!!

    I bought my dress after holding up a too small sample and it turned out great!

    it looks like it would flatter you, I would have totally bought mine without trying it on but my Fiance strongly opposed it so i went into Davids Bridal and bought one. It IS kinda scary though I understand!

    I voted not a chance until I saw that you did sorta try it on…I think it looks great…I would buy a dress if I loved out it looked half way on.

    That dress is gorgeous! It looks sexy and elegant at the same time, and I think it would look lovely on your body!

    As for the poll, I voted yes because I actually bought my dress without trying it on and I have no regrets whatsoever.

    I voted before I read the post. If you can see the dress and feel the dress but the sample doesn’t fit go for it! If you LOVE it and it suits your body shape but you just cannot fit that particular sample I would buy it. If you love it in person why not. I voted thinking you were just looking at pictures. 

    By The Way I L.O.V.E. That dress! and it would be stunning on you!
