You DEFINITELY picked the right dress. The first dress – yours – is absolutely perfect on you and much more flattering than the second. Honestly, most men don’t have a clue about dresses or what would look best on their Fiance. Most men want something that will show off your figure, but the wedding isn’t the time to show everything. Your dress flatters your figure and makes you look beautiful, and I guarantee your Fiance will think so, too. Don’t second-guess yourself; you made the right decision.

The dress you picked looks AMAZING on you. Do not regret it. Your fiancé will LOVE it on you, I promise. He will like ruffles once he sees it, trust me. It is very, very flattering.

I think the second dress is nice and all, but that’s what I would wear out to dinner. I like your first dress much better.

Both are gorgeous but if you really hate the dress you bought can you possibly sell it (given it’s a desirable brand) and not take too much of a financial hit?

Teddie_bubb :  you got the right one, it’s super cute and looks good on you. The second one, the one you didn’t get, is not flattering, the fabric is too thin or too clingy or something because you can see your belly button through it, and that just looks wrong imo, I hate it when tops and dresses do that.

Ok. Both dresses are gorgeous! Honestly tho, your dress is the exact opposite of what your Fiance said he liked. It’s basically the definition of ruffles. However the top of your dress is actually pretty low cut and revealing so he might like the sexy aspect of it.

If I was in your shoes today: I would show my Fiance my dress. Not an ideal choice for many but if it’s important to you he likes it, you may need his actual input in this, since you are not feeling confident right now in your already made decision. If he likes it great!  If not then you can decide if you want another dress. Which is what I personally would do if my Fiance didn’t like my dress.

Teddie_bubb :  nope, it looks to me like it’s the fabric, like it woukd do that even if it were looser, it drives me crazy when stuff does that, I’ve tried putting a bandaid over my belly button with fabrics like that before and then you can see the outline of the bandaid. Rayon is a terrible fabric for doing that, and also that modal stuff.

The first dress is the one! The second one is nice but not stunning like the first one.

Your dress is beautiful, and it DOES hug your curves. Just not ALL of them. You will look amazing in this dress on your wedding day.

Ok, I am always totally 110% honest with posts like this because that’s what I would want.  I honestly hate ruffles…but I love your dress.  It’s that good.  It fits your body very well.  It flatters your body.  It gives you a great waist.  It looks infinitely better than the second choice.  The second choice leaves nothing to the imagination and though you are positively GORGEOUS and super slender and have a great figure…even you will get random bumps and bulges.

What I would do is keep the first dress.  If your fiance isn’t a fan of ruffles, I would minimize the train a bit…maybe even take it off totally because that beast is gonna be a monster to bustle…and I would go with a gorgeous sparkly hair clip instead of a veil.  There’s a LOT going on in the back of your dress, like tulle overload.  No veil, shorter train, maybe take off a layer of ruffles.
