I think you look amazing in the second dress.  It gives you a very flattering silouette, it gives you soft curves.  I would try trying it on without the slip.

I love the second gown on you!!!

I am only 5″ 1 1/2″ and I am wearing a ballgown with an extremely full crinoline. Everyone that has seen me in it loves it on me, so you being 5′ 3″ shouldn’t be a problem ๐Ÿ™‚

I tried on the Oleg Cassini too – I loved it! I tried it w/ and w/out the slip, and its still a pretty full skirt. I do love the first dress on you! Maybe you could ask the salon if the designer could do a different floral accent belt? Also, so many times a designer can eliminate a portion, such as the lace on the bottom. Easy & quick fix. Sometimes you have to think creatively ๐Ÿ™‚

I wonder if the skirt of the ballgown can be taken in to be more fitted? I would try asking a seamstress about it to see if it can be altered this way. Both dresses look beautiful on you but I also love #2!

@anuicupcake: I was looking on this board for some idea how to make that EXACT gown less poofy!! I would be very interested if you found something to make that work. I’m 5’7 so kind of the other way.. I’m worried I will look like a giant! being really tall with a really big dress!! Until now I have been loving the sheath style dresses but something about the oleg cassini I can’t forget…I’m not sure if you’ve found another dress yet but the other one I’m tossing up is the Maggie Sottero Edie..it has a less full skirt with a similar bodice as your first dress and a jewelled belt which I thought I could add a flower too if I choose that one…Please let me know how it worked out for you with your dress and good luck!!!

Wow, it sounds like we are going thru the same dress search :-). I was hunting for a A-line or dropped waist organza dress with some great flower detailing, and I was considering that Wtoo, as well as the Wtoo Desdemona at some point. It’s surprisingly hard to find a dress like this. My best advice to you is to find a dress with the silhouette you want and have a great flower sash made on Etsy. I feel like there’s a decent number of slimmer organza dresses out there, I’ll go find some examples.

Edited to add:  I just realized this thread is a bit old – PM me if you’re still looking and want any examples.

Casablanca 1992…it has the same top as the first dress and has a ballgown silhoutte.

It’s my dress. I’m 5’0 and I don’t think it’s too overwhelming
