    I actually love the Esther on you. Strangely, it looks like less dress than I was expecting from it (on Ivanka Trump, Blair from GG etc it looks more voluminous, yours looks rather sleek in comparison!) 

    I am really concerned about what you say about the Georgina. I am very close to buying it sight unseen (I won’t get a chance to try it on beforehand. What was it that didn’t work for you? I’ve tried other trumpet/soft mermaids that suit me…I was hoping that was close enough. Did you take any photos at all?

    @chateau2013:  Which one did you already order? Can you add a poll?

    Between the first dress (August Jones Elaine), the second dress (???), and the third dress (Vera Wang Esther), I like the third one the best. The second dress is my least favorite because I dislike the dropped waist.

    Oooo first one for sure!  And, this is coming from a huge fan of lace dresses, but the first one is gorgeous on you!  The lace dress is pretty, but seems like a looked-nice-on-the-hanger kind of dress.  And to be honest, I just am not impressed by the second dress at all.

    The first dress!

    I’m having a hard time deciding over here – I love 1 and 3!

    I’m stuck between 1 & 3. Go with your heart and pick the one you love!

    @chateau2013: Thanks for your thoughtful analysis, as usual! It really does help. Your post has actually reignited my love for Esther, I didn’t realise it actually looks closer to a modified A-line/almost a slight trumpet rather than a big ballgown (which how it appears in other photos I’ve seen). Did you try on the lace bolero? 

    I think the front of the Georgina is quite plain, I would definitely add a bejewelled sash. I was hoping the back of it, with that fabulous train, would make up for the front! And if I got the Georgina, I am also considering the Audrey lace veil (which I think you’re wearing with the second Vera?) to make it a bit more fancy, rather than just a raw edged plain veil.

    I have another question you may be able to help me with – any thoughts about the internal construction of the Vera dresses? Is there an internal corset? As in, sometimes I feel the Georgina looks a little flimsy through the bodice compared to other trumpet dresses that look like they have more boning through the upper body. I just don’t want to end up with a dress that isn’t sufficiently supportive, or one that doesn’t nip me in enough through the body!

    By the way, I still really like your Lhuillier. How do you feel about that dress now?

    @chateau2013:  Oh, I remember your posts! We have similar body types.

    Honestly, I really do like your original dress. The pleated bodice on the Augusta Jones is beautiful and fits you so well, but I prefer the lace on the original. The only thing I’m not wild about on the ML is the seam across the hips.

    I just don’t think the AJ is sooo much better to warrant buying a whole new dress.
