Looks good on you!
Lol, too many windows opened and I posted the wrong comments in the wrong windows! The dress looks great!!It’s hugging all the right places!!
You look stunning! I never would have guessed from the photos that the dress dosen’t fit you properly. It’s amazing!
@alikat2014: I agree with the previous posters … The dress really hugs your curves in a very flattering way, so I’m sure a correctly sized gown would look fabulous!
I hope you’re able to find a store in Illinois that carries this designer, though. Your dress shopping experience sounds like my worst nightmare … Seriously! I went to 4 bridal shops this last week in Omaha (and found my dress, yay!), and I was never treated with anything but respect. I worked with one consultant throughout my appointment, each girl I worked with took everything I liked and didn’t like into consideration before pulling dresses, and each girl helped me in and out of every dress. They made the experience fun, and none of them were pushy. I definitely would not buy from a shop where I had such a negative experience … You’ll still have to deal with fittings, etc. and you probably won’t get the greatest customer service at a place like that.
This was my 8th bridal shop. I have tried on so many dresses it’s crazy! I have seen dresses that were ripped and things missing, but every place I have been has clips to help shape the dress if it is the incorrect size. I have also had one consultant dedicated to me, or me and one other person and they were always so helpful.
In the most recent stores defense they were very busy, but I will admit I feel like they tricked me in to coming. I made it very clear what size I needed and I even call yesterday to confirm the dress would fit. I am not sure why I was so worried it wouldn’t fit, I guess I just had a feeling. The store was very nice aesthetically. I was able to look at a lot of dresses before I went in to the fitting room and I find it hard to believe they cater to women of all sizes.
Very pretty! 🙂
Gorgeous! That dress looks stunning on you.
If it looks that good in the wrong size, imagine how it’ll look in the right one!
That looks amazing, even if it is the wrong size! Imagine how good the right size would look!
The only suggestion I would make would be looking at other bridal salons for the same dress (even if they just order it in). But that’s because service is really important to me. I don’t see the point in garnishing the wages of people that can’t do their job properly and don’t seem to care.
@alikat2014: i can’t believe a consultant would treat you so poorly. she should not be working in that field.
well i think that you have a great figure and that the dress will look stunning on you. i pulled up the mikaela 1406 to see the dream dress and it’s gorgeous. here it is for the other bees to see. i hope this is the right one.
