I have been experiencing the dreaded dress regret for quite some time now. I bought my dress prematurely for our September 2013 wedding thinking it was “perfect” and it was such a good deal, I couldn’t pass it up.
Since I purchased the dress I have worked extremely hard to lose at least 15 pounds. This weekend I had a complete dress-meltdown and realized my original dress wasn’t right for me. It doesn’t flatter my body or show off all the hard work I’ve put into losing weight. I didn’t want to spend the money on another dress but I want to feel beautiful on my wedding day and I knew putting on my original dress wasn’t going to do it for me. I was fortunate enough to find a gorgeous Maggie Adorae second-hand and purchased it right away. I think it it much more flattering and I feel like I’ve picked the right dress this time around.
Here’s a pic of my old dress:
And the new one:
The pictures aren’t that flattering but you get the idea.
I think I made the right choice. What are your thoughts?

The second dress looks so much better on you! I am personally not I fan of the skirt on the first, but I also agree that it did not flatter your body as well as the second. Congrats!

@NinjaDuck: Thank you!! I liked the bodice of the first one but I think it’s the skirt which I realized I hate. It’s too wide and I feel like the dress swallows me up. I also realized I hated the pick-ups as well as the rosettes on the skirt.

Oh yeah, LOVE the Adorae! You look stunning in both of them, but it’s time to show off that figure that you worked so hard for!
