@nadiadarne:  I love the flower too! Wasn’t sure if you did, though.

I agree on the thicker sashes! And feathers!

WHAT POTBELLY??? No, seriously, where is it?

I really like your dress. The fit looks fine to me, but if you’re uncomfortable with how it feels, you could always get it altered. I also like the idea of a thicker sash with more flowers. Your current sash sits lower than your natural waist, which doesn’t do much to define it. A sweetheart neckline might also help to elongate your figure, but I think your dress looks fine either way.

Another vote for the top dress – it’s so pretty! 🙂

I definitely think the 1st dress is the one for you, it gives you a very pretty hourglass figure and the belt compliments it well!!!

@nadiadarne:  I love the feather flower! I think a sweetheart neckline would work. Luckily you can pin it and test it out beforehand.

I really like the top dress, too! I would try a slight sweetheart neckline with it….not too deep. And I also love the belt and feathers!

I think that the one you chose is miles better than the picture of the other one you tried on.  It’s a lot more flattering to your figure!

I love your dress! I think it is much more flattering and interesting than the other one you tried on. And I have NO clue what you are talking about regarding a “pot belly”, By The Way. You are right about the dress being unique… definitely a “wow” dress in my opinion!

It’s easy to feel underwhelmed by your dress when you look at pictures of you in it– especially low quality pictures like cell phone ones. They just don’t do the dresses justice. Whenever I look at my cell-phone quality pics I feel totally underwhelmed, but when I try on my dress I am in love with it. Just try to remember how you felt when you tried it on!

You made a great choice, promise!

The dress you did get is GORGEOUS and far far better than the other one!! Yes, a sweetheart would probably be great too, but I love how it is now!

Oh, I think the one you bought is GORGEOUS on you, and much more flattering than the longer waisted dress. If it was a hasty decision, it was definitely the right one!!

The dress you purchased looks amazing on you. It defines your waist great and is much more flattering than the second dress. You made a great choice, beautiful dress!!
