Thanks for your previous help ladies! It’s been so useful and I am now confident about my final two choices. I seriously love them both, but I’m very indecisive and don’t want dress regret.
If you can comment why you chose either one, that is SUPER helpful!! thanks so much : )
The samples are a size 8 &10 (I’m a 0 in both designers) and the enzoani was not Clamped well – gives me no waist in these pics so try to imagine it with some shape!! my body in fact does not go straight down ha ha…in my size it will be all good….
I’ve found them both for approx the same price, so now it’s just a matter of which do I go with???
i like how both are flattering, i like the sparkle of sophia tolli and the poof skirt of dabra – so really which one do people thinks look best? I really need your help deciding. I polled my bridesmaids, they are split.

Oh gosh, I can’t decide! I know that doesn’t help you AT ALL, but the good news is you can’t go wrong! 🙂

They both look great on you but I prefer dress 1 but there’s not much in it so you really can’t go Wrong:)

I’ve been eyeing the Jillian for awhile and I love it on you. I’ve seen the Dabra so many times (because it’s gorgeous), but go for something fresh and new.
eta: If you like the poof of the Dabra, you can always add a crinoline slip underneath the Jillian.

Which one is cheaper? If you love them both, go with the cheaper one. They both look fabulous on you!

I like the dabras neckline better. The other sweetheart is too dramatic on ur frame.

Warning: insanely long post ahead (but think of it as a good thing…like when two teams are evenly matched and it’s a super-close game) 🙂
Another case of a bride who looks fantastic in all choices! Huge samples or not, you can tell you have a killer figure and either way you’ll be a stunning bride.
Seriously, I scrolled up and down about 5 times to see which one I like better on you. Since it’s not really about style or fit (because you look amazing in either one), my critques are going to be very very nitpicky. My disclaimer, as always is that I’m only doing this to help your decision, and really if you go with either gown, you are going to shock and awe (and amaze your guests). 😀
Full disclosure: I voted for the Dabra
Dabra: love the simple lace + tulle combo; the Dabra does so many things right: the lovely sweetheart neckline, the subtle dropped waist, the wonderfully huge tulle skirt, and the lace appliques added to the skirt (helps tie both halves togther) BUT I don’t like that the lace “disappears” in the middle (it almost looks like someone rubbed the lace pattern off, but only around your waist); also some might find the straight sweetheart to harsh of a contrast with the overall romantic loveliness of the gown
Jillian: love the deeper sweetheart with the lace embroidery along the edge; the asymmetrical beaded lace embroidery is pretty cool, and I especially like how it “opens up” more on one side to let the tulle peek through BUT it’s not as jaw-dropping as the Dabra on you; I don’t really like what the asymmetry is doing to your figure from the straight-on and side views (but that might be more of a clipping issue)
*Even so, my comments on the Dabra are minor, picky “issues” that don’t actually keep the Dabra from being spectacular on all levels. I doubt any of your guests have seen the Dabra IRL before (unless they’re other brides, but that doesn’t caount), so you won’t even remotely have a “been there, done that” look. What really sells me on the Dabra over the Jillian is that even though both samples are way too big for you, you are still absolutely breathtaking in the Dabra…think of how much more so you’ll be when you get it in your size!

I voted for the Jillian, but you can’t go wrong with either. I prefer the way the lace covers the whole bodice, and I think there’s beading on it too? I also like the softer, deeper neckline more.
I also like the asymmetrical pattern on the Jillian – but I love asymmetry so that might just be me.

I love the Dabra on you!! I love the lace and tulle and how they mc one together! The train and neckline are beautiful too!

I like the Jillian because the dramatic diagonal line makes you look long and lean, and that neckline is just amazing. But you seriously look beautiful in both!
