Okay, so I’ve narrowed it down to 2 dresses, Maggie Sottero Lorie and WToo Emerson. I like both for different reasons:
Lorie: I think it’s slightly more flattering than the Emerson. But I also think it’s less unique and it seems like a lot of women are choosing this dress (probably b/c it IS so flattering!). It would be the exact same price as the Emerson, except that I’m going to have it altered to remove the lace-up back and have a zipper w/ buttons added instead, so that will add at least another $200 to it. And I have to put an $80 rush on it since my wedding is 6.5 months away.
Emerson: I just love the details of this dress and the fact that it is more unique and less traditional than the Lorie. It fits my “personality” more. That said, it doesn’t seem to flatter my hourglass figure like the Lorie does. They did mention adding a corset to this one though which would gve the torso a bit more structure to it, like the Lorie.

I LOVE the pattern on dress #2. So unique and modern. You have a killer body, and with all the right undergarments, you’re hourglass shape will shine.

WToo is nice, but the horizontal lines hit you in all the wrong places. If you put a corset under it, you will see the lumps and bumps. Def the first one!

@southern77: I love #1 on you, you have amazing figure but I’m bias because I love lace.

They both look great on you! I love the Maggie but I know what you mean about their popularity right now. The only thing I don’t like about the wtoo is the way the lines fall make it look like you have a really bad pantyline showing.

AH I love #2 but I could see it being super dated when you look back at your pictures in 10 years.
Not to mention the cut below your hips on the front makes you look a little wider than you actually are. But the back… DAMN! That looks amazing!
I’d stick with #1. Elegant, timeless, and flawless.

I think number 2 shows your figure more then the first. And if its more your personality then go for it

I like the Lorie a little better. The flare at the bottom makes it more of a wedding dress to me.

LOVE the first 1…
#2 is nice…but I dont think nice is how you would want people to think of your dress! I like that its unique…but it kind of reminds me of the pattern on toilet paper…#1 does much better for you

If you get the Wtoo which i think you should because you said youl like it more instead of a corset get a sausage slip because i think a corset might show underneath the dress. Your body is beautiful but I think it wil smooth out all the lines in the dress so it look flawless on you and prevent it from drawing attention to the wrong places. I think the maggie is a gorgeous dress but I understand what you mean when you say everyone has one right now, but I think that is for a reason, I think Maggie has the best fitting wedding dresses. Anyone can put it on pull it tight and it looks amazing.

Ugh, tough decision. I know what you mean about the Lorie being the typical lace mermaid gown, but it really does look beautiful on you. It needs to be tighter on you though, I assume that’s just because of the sample. It’s definitely the more flattering dress, gives you a beautiful silhouette and the perfect shape.
The Emerson is a very quirky dress, and I like it. But I always feel like it doesn’t show off to a bride’s best advantage, unless said bride is super thin and willowly. The horizontal seams at the hips are a bit of design flaw, in my opinion, because they widen almost everyone I’ve seen this dress on. I don’t know whether a corset will fix the problem because the Emerson looks like a lighter dress than the Lorie, and I don’t know what kind of corsetry can be added that won’t look bulky.
I think you can definitely get away with the Emerson if you really loved it – but there’s no question that the Lorie is the more flattering, classically beautiful wedding dress on you.

Lorie is definitely more flatttering. The pattern on #2 is unique, but kind of reminded me of freshly-pressed table linens? I know #1 is a more common silhouette, but fabulous on you! I’d even make it even more fitted through the thigh to really accentuate your hour glass figure. Lace is timeless and classic- can’t go wrong with #1!

They are both beautiful on you, but I LOVE the second one…the pattern, and especially the very low place the hips fall, makes me think of 1920s. I think it’s very classy, and its unique pattern is what I love about it!
