@nadiadarne:  Trust me, you do NOT have a tummy in that dress.  The great thing about wedding dresses is that they tend to hide tummies because they’re just designed so well.  If all clothing was designed like wedding dresses, I think women would feel much better about their bodies!

The first dress is a clear winner. Your figure looks amazing in it.

I would definitely go with the first dress.  It looks great on you!  Much better than the second one.

I actually like the 1st dress better. I had a bit of dress regret too. but after purchasing I went to about 3 more dress shops and just confirmed that i did buy the right dress.  This is not the best idea, but when the salons wouldn’t let me take pictures i’d take a picture in the dressing room with my cell.

The first dress is beautiful. I think you just have some dress anxiety. The picture does not do the dress justice. The picture of the model and the close-ups have me drooling. I think for picking out the dress alone you did a FABULOUS job!

+1 on the potbelly! I have the same problem, lol. Despite overall being really skinny/tiny I still have that ‘baby’ bump. I ended up getting a higher waisted aline dress to cover it and was a relief to not have to worry about it since it was covered up.:)

I also love your first dress though! It looks great on you now and will even better once fitted. I also did make an impulse buy just like you. I found a dress I thought was the one, and like you couldn’t take a picture until I committed to buy. I think that was extra pressure to buy it right then! Long story short I couldn’t get over my anxiety about it and was able to get store credit for a different dress. (I cancelled within 3 days though). If you can’t get over your anxiety about it, is there still time to see if the store would do that for you? I had to beg and plead and cry for 3 days till they did for me. But it sounds like all the other bees positive comments have let you see that this dress really is beautiful on you!
