    @Slbauer87:  I think it looks amazing on you….BUT, if you are not 100% thrilled I say try on a few more that have the shape you want before saying yes.

     

    It truly is beautiful, I looked at her line of dresses and wondered how they fit but never tried any on.

     

    I agree though that the neckline looks a bit low, but the material OH gorgeous and love the back!!

    I agree with what sablemuse said as well…

     

    for me, I have an hourglass shape, but I have a wide chest and a smaller cup size…many of the dresses I tried on the bustline was way off mainly because they were deep sweethearts (which I thought I wanted…)

     

    I watched an eipsode of something old something new, and I heard the guy comment that smaller busts should wear a straighter neckline, as they look better. For me this was true (I’m a 34c or 36b for reference). I think if I would have ende up with a sweeetheart neckline it would have been a modfied or less deep,…but in the end I choose a straight.

    I think it looks awesome, BUT if something bothers you about it before you buy it, it wont just magically go away after you buy it. Keep looking. If you keep coming back to that dress, get it, if you find something else you love, so be it.

    I think a sash would add a lot of pizzaz to it!! But truly, it’s lovely!

    @Slbauer87:  I liked your first dress better. Although the Roni is more of what you’re looking for, it looks quite similar to the ubiquitous generic fitted satin wedding gown. Plus, as you said, it doesn’t really showcase your curves. I think you should keep looking. 

    ETA: Your pick is gorgeous, though! It does everything you said (your figure looks awesome), and I really like the pinned skirt + spiderweb-delicate lace. Great choice.

    @Slbauer87:  You got it girl! Amazing! It’s the vertical seams, the deeper sweatheart, the wider flare, the flow of the material. That is *your* dress! 
     

    Now pair with a fingertip or a cathedral veil, with some sparkle in the hair and this is going to be breathtaking.

    @Slbauer87:  If I can find a store near me that has this dress, I might want to try it on…was it heavy?
