I am SO torn between three different Allure dresses and would love your opinions! I tried all 3 on, but the shop didn’t allow photos so I only managed to sneek photos of me in 2 of the 3. A little background info: We are having an outdoor wedding on a dock with the water & mountains behind us, and then an indoor reception. I have also recentley lost about 50 pounds, but am still super self conscious about my thigh/hip area, as thats where I carry most of my weight.
So the first dress is the Allure 9250. I’m in LOVE with the lace on this, especially around the bust area, but I feel like when I look at myself in this gown my eyes go right to my hip area, and I can’t focus on anything else.
The second is the Allure 9374. The sample on this one was way too small, so try to ignore the bunching. I also wasn’t able to get as good of a sneak photo on this one so its a little blurry. This one had a subtle beeding throughout, which was pretty but almost felt like it might be too much for me? But when I look at this dress I see myself in the dress and my eyes dont go directly to my hip area even though it’s still fitted. I think this is my least favorite of the three though.
And the last dress that I wasn’t able to sneak a photo of is the Allure 9072. This is the dress I went into the store with a picture of, and I’ve been in love with it ever since I first saw it. Its a tad bid more fitted in the hip area than dress #2, but not quite as fitted as #1, and my eyes didn’t immediatley go to my hips in this one either.
The top area on all 3 fit me practically the same, its just the bottom fit that differed slightly. I’m so torn, as I thought forsure going into it that dress 3 would be my dress, but now I’m second guessing myself. The lace on dress 1 is SO beautiful, but I don’t want to be self conscious on my wedding day and look at my pictures and only see my hips. So bees please help, which dress should I go with?

First of all, congratulations!! You look AMAZING and honestly you couldn’t go wrong with any of these. I think dress 3 has a little wow factor that the others don’t and I imagine it looks gorgeous on you!!!

I think the first one looks amazing on you. You have an incredible hourglass figure.

Dress #1! Your hips look AMAZING. Embrace the curves. You don’t have to disclose if you don’t want to, but can I ask how much the dresses cost?
I am looking for a lace mermaid from Allure as well!

First of all, your body looks SMOKING. Yeah, my eyes go to your “hip area” too because you have a perfect hourglass shape. Seriously, don’t feel self conscience about that! I love Dress 1 best. The lace is incredible. Also keep in mind that things will look a lot better to you once it’s in your size and altered to your body.

They all look pretty similar, so it’s hard for me to decide!! But your body looks great, so no need to worry about your hips!!

I honestly had no idea that #1 & #2 are different. They are very similar. I think I like 1 best though because I like the bodice how the lace is kind of swirly. Gives it a gatsby-like feel & I love it! I think your body looks rockin!

Yeah number one and two sre very similar, I thought it was the same one until I read that that was #2. I like #1 best but something about the belt is off- maybe a longer belt or a different design? But either way, PP are right, the eye does go to your hips but only because you have a perfect hourglaas figure. Emrace those curves!
