Okay so I actually selected my dress yesterday and now I’m waking up with morning regrets. Help!!!
Dress 1 is Francine by soterro midgley.
Dress 2 is Melanie by Maggie Soterro.
Obviously both dresses are too tight and I will be ordering larger sizes. Both photos of the second dress have parts where the slip is bunched. But bunched in different places thus the two photos 🙂
The the salon opens in a couple hours so any input is appreciated!!

They look very similar to me. But of the two I like the first one better 🙂

I like the first one on you better. The neckline and the illusion back is beautiful on you. So much prettier.
Which one did you buy?

The illusion details on the first dress look higher end and more beautiful. I would go with that one for sure 🙂

I like the 1st one a little more, but they’re very similar dresses. Very pretty, btw.

Thanks for the feedback. I have currently ordered dress 1. They are slightly different. The first one is actually a gold dress. For soterro fans, its ivory lace with gold tulle over light gold. It also has little sequins which overall gives it more of a formal feel. My wedding is in a backyard with a country rustic theme. Im worried the first dress is too formal. I honestly want to cut out the illusion neckline and back to make a V cut front and a keyhole back.
The second dress is shown in ivory over ivory. I would order it in ivory over light gold. I really like the V neck and I LOVE the train.
Ugh! I feel so silly. This feels like Im naming a child or something.

Cut the back! Oh no! The back on both of these dresses is what makes it!

You are completely right. Which is why I ended up going with the Sottero Midgley Lara dress. My salon allowed me to change my order. AND the dress was over $500 cheaper. It feels SO right. Thank you everyone for your input 🙂

I’ve been drooling over the melanie for so long but haven’t made it down to the shop that has the sample. I have tried on Maggie dresses that are very similar but I have a question for you. Did the Melanie have the boning it in when you tried it on? Did you feel like it provided enough control and support for you?
Also if you don’t mind me asking what size was the Melanie you tried on?
