$1,800 is a lot of money so it’s worth the extra effort.  I think I like the Adore better.  I don’t like when the corset backs have strings hanging out, and I like the train on Adore better as well.  I think the cut looks almost identical so I would think the Adore should work perfectly. And really, they are siimilar enough in style for you to feel comfortable.  That style dress with either work for you, or it won’t.  It’s clear that it works for you.  I can’t wait for the update.  🙂

@aat108:

OK, my opinion for what it’s worth 🙂 Don’t hate me, but I’m still REALLY loving the La Sposa on you.  I’m not a lace girl at all but there is something about that dress that shows off your curves AMAZINGLY and the lace at the bottom doesn’t take away from that at all!  To me, the Alita just doesn’t do the same things for your curves.  I personally think the Satin is too “heavy” and it hangs off you instead of flattering and showing off what you’ve got.  The other thing is that I didn’t once read in your posts where you said you felt “BEAUTIFUL” in either the Alita or the Jim Hjelm, but you did say that about yourself in the La Sposa.  Just a little something I picked up on.  Just figured I’d throw my 2 cents in.

GIRL yes get the Adorae…..BUT honestly I am sure they don’t carry this line at Kleinfield’s BUT DaVinci has a similar style to the Adorae and it is MUCH cheaper I myself just purchased a DaVinci and the way it hugs my curves is AWESOME!!! The corset back like another bride said once it is in the right size it is MAZING what it will do for your waist line and the overall look of your dress…Here is the link to the DaVinci gown:

i think the first a-line dress in the correct size will look good on you but you’re right about trying on other shapes.  the shape of the second dress looks awesome on you.  it pulls you in at your natural waist.  i can’t completely tell by the photos but you look like you have an almost hourglass shape.  you should consider trying on a mermaid or trumpet dress.  i’m short and larger on top but my hips/butt are almost non-existent.  a girl friend told me to try on all shapes.  (i knew a-lines were not the best shape for me.)  i tried on a mermaid and fell in love.
