I really like the dress you bought, and once the bust is fitted better I think it will give you the more defined waist you’re looking for.

I love both the dress you chose and the second dress. Alterations WILL make it look amazing on you.

klhg515 :  Don’t have second thoughts; the dress you bought is the perfect choice. The placement of the appliqués make for a truly interesting design element, and adds to how very flattering the dress looks on you.

klhg515 :  Hi bee! I honestly don’t think you should have reservations! But I understand having them. I DID THE SAME THING!! Literally for the past couple of months until the ladies here gave me their opinions and my doubts settled down. And like you what was getting to me was that it wasn’t what I had pictured myself walking away with! I love the dress you bought. The flower appliques are so unique and beautiful! In my opinion much better  than the flowery details on dress #2 (you see that kind of detail in tons of dresses). And even though the bust isn’t fitted to you in the picture I find it to be the most attractive cut out of them all. And what do you mean you don’t feel it defines your waist?!!! It looks beautiful around your waist!!! You honestly look gorgeous!! I think you made the right choice and I hope the worries are soon washed away for you and you feel as beautiful in this dress as you look 🙂 I wish you had more pictures because I’d love to see the back!!

I agree that the first dress once altered on the bust will look wonderful. To me your waist appears the thinnest in the one your purchased.  It elongates your shape and makes you look longer waisted. I think sometimes belt can ruin a nice hour glass shape by chopping the person in half.

I also like the way the lace ” flows” on the first dress. It looks more romantic and feminine. Don’t doubt yourself. Out of the four, I think you made the perfect choice.

Oh my gosh I am drooling over the dress you bought. It is absolutely stunning! Please don’t have doubts. Once you get it altered it will fit you like a glove and you will look so beautiful.

Once the bust is fitted, it will be perfect.

I wouldn’t waste any time thinking about number 3. To me that looks like the dress everyone would expect a plus size gal to wear and really isn’t flattering. The one you chose is a real WOW dress.

Bee, the dress you chose is unique and jaw dropping. It is seriously stunning, none of the other ones you posted compare.

klhg515 :  The one you have seriously outshines all the others. I think you just have to get your head around the “differentness” of this dress from your original vision. I can see the bustline needs fitting but apart from that it’s perfect and by far the most flattering to your figure. That colour is just right on you too (way nicer than the ivory shade in my view)

You look great in the dress that you chose. Your waist looks very defined. I think that the background in the picture is kind of light and so that might make it hard for you to tell how small it makes your waist look. You made a great decision!

Dress three is my wedding dress laughing I really like the dress you picked out. Your waist looks smaller in that dress compared to the others. I think once it’s been fitted you will feel better in it. Are you whering a strapless bra or a bustier? That can make a big difference in the fit. You could always add boning to it so it feels like it has a more structured bodice. You could cut the train but it looks pretty with it. Have you tried on some belts or even just a plain ribbon sachet to try defining the waist? I don’t think it needs it but I had that same feeling when I was trying on dress so I get it.  Talk to the seamstress she may have ideas. You could add some off the shoulder sleeves. Being plus size I did feel like I had a limited options and I think even after I picked out a dress it was hard to get past that it wasn’t what I had in mind for a wedding dress. Plus I never tried on what I had in mind because I couldn’t find it but I think you have to get over that.
