I like it on you! I dont think you look wide at all, a sweetheart neckline would make the dress looks diffrent if you want to spice it up!

Your waist looks teeny tiny. The only part that looks “wide” to me is the bust area. I think making the neckline a sweetheart would look better.

You look great in the first one. You should call the shop and really tell them that you have changed your mind  but if they refuse at leas you know you look really good in your dress.

You know, looking at the two dresses, I’m not sure it’s really that you feel like dress #1 is going to be too big on you (because it’s probably not). I think you’re just in a style disagreement with your mom – she probably is thinking more streamlined, a-line dress for you, whereas you’re craving the trumpet/mermaid look.  Both are beautiful, but you should definitely go with what makes you feel better!  Don’t suppose you have photos of you in both dresses?

My wedding dress looked very similar to dress #2, and my mother loved dresses like #1.  I’m barely 5’1″, so I totally feel you!

I think you look great in Dress #1!  It’s just hard to tell because of the length – maybe you can try on the sample dress again and tuck the excess length under to get a sense of what it will look like on you?

 The sample is just way to long and thats why it seems to be swamping you. You can order a shorter length which willhave better proportions to your body

you look beautiful in the sample!  I can only imagine how great you’re going to look once the alterations are made.
