    Based on your photos, I really love the Mori Lee on you.  Is it in your budget to have it altered if the larger size came in and needed some adjusting?  (Also, don’t feel like you should pick a dress because your mom loves it.  My mom loved the first one I tried on – I didn’t pick it, then found a different one when she wasn’t there, that she actually ended up loving more than the first.)

    @vintagefair i agree with @ MalbecMe since the Mori-Lee A-line dress seem more fitted and have a nature beauty, and you seem very gorgeour in this dress!  you may go to local tailor shop to alter it to be size10 if it is in your budget, just follow your straight feel, you may still have enought time chosing your dress.

    I totally understand how you feel about Snow White, I actually bought but ended up having major dress regret over how the flower details don’t entend farther, the way it cut me off looked kind of awkward, my parents fell in love with that one, but I think it was because I looked like a little girl and not a woman! Don’t know why that is, I’ve seen it look gorgeous on brides but hey, every body is different.

    I’m sorry you’re having such a tough time with dress buying =(  I know this isporbably easier said than done, but next time you’re going to dress shop try to clear your mind a bit! It’s one of those cycle things, because feeling so down and stressed is going to make finding the right dress a million times harder. You’re going to find something that makes you feel beautiful! (Personally, I think the one your mom loves looks beautiful too, but it’s really important that YOU feel that way too so you don’t get dress regret). Some consultants and bridal stores are better than others at making suggestions and pulling dresses that look great on you, maybe look around for the best recommended store, and go there even if it’s a bit father away?

    I googled the Mori Lee dress to see what it looked like on real brides in the right size…it looks like it does fall around the same area as Snow White, but I think that it’s more fluid in the way it flows into the bottom because the material stays the same, unlike Snow White.

    Have you tried on any Allure or Mori Lee gowns? Not to be more overwhelming, but they both have some gorgeous dropped waist dresses with beautiful detailing and beading.

    And this one is different but it has the silhouette your mom loved but in a softer material with no pickups, and even buttons on the back and a bit of floral detailing!

    I personally loved the Snow White on you best. It gives you a very nice waste line! Maybe when they take your measurement and order the dress in your size, the bodice will fit you better? i would ask the alteration department about it. They would be able to tell you. Good luck!

    My dress is Casablanca 2072. Its technically an a-line but it is fitted through the hips. It comes as a zip up back with buttons as well. No pickups. Idk how you feel about lace tho…

    You could also try some Allure dresses. I know they  have a LOT of dropped waist dresses.

    Good luck!

    I like the top right and bottom left dresses the best. Just FYI you can’t have buttons and a corset back at the same time.

    I love the Mori Lee gown.  It is timeless and beautiful.  I love the well defined waist and how the skirt floats. Oh and the sweetheart neckline, lovely.

    i love the unknomn style on you.i think that dress compliments you soooo much ! you look slimmer in it and it really gives you a nice shape.maybe you could not sit in it because it wasn t your size,but trust me once you get it in your size, you will be able to do everything, sit, dance and what ever you like. Plus the tip i can give you is to purchase a waist cincher and wear it under your dress, it will give you a nice hourglass shape. here is the one i purshased, every time i wear a dress i wear it and people always compliment me and tell me how tiny my wait is.

    you have beautiful curves, show them, i defenitly think you should consider wearing the unknown style with a waist cincher, or at least mermaid dress.to me, you look better in those kind of dress.

    think about it !
