bcbride17: 

Well one and two look pretty much identical to me, and three, which  I like best,    is  not that dissimilar  . All dresses of this shape/type are going to emphasise  your hips, that’s  kind of  the point of them, to display  the body . So , I think, embrace your  curves  and buy the dress you actually like best . Or go for a  style less fitted over the hips

FWIW, I think none of them are enhanced by the bling belts. Maybe thats why I like 3 best !

bcbride17:  Your figure is fab…no worries there at all!

Tbh, the dresses are practically identical, so you can’t go wrong. Maybe the third dress as it has some additional interesting detailing round the bust?

That shape really suits you!

bcbride17:  I think you look amazing in both dresses, and you have beautiful curves so nothing to worry about in that area!! I love how dress 1 fits you, it looks like it was made for you but I think dress 3 is SO romantic… Tough choice, but I would probably choose one of them.

bcbride17 :ย  hi, I was curious to know if you ended up choosing one of these dresses?? ๐Ÿ™‚ all 3 are absolutely gorgeous. I need to choose and order my dress asap and I loved the first one you posted, but personally didn’t care for the shape of the neckline on me. I also liked 9215 with the tiers in back, but was unsure about the heavier material. I really want to try on 9374 because it’s seems like a good combination of them both!!…but I can’t find it anywhere to try :/ I was wondering if you remember if allure 9374 had sequens or something on it for a little sparkle? Its hard to tell in the pic. not sure if I should order without ever seeing a dress..ughh, i’m stuck. Lol

They all look very similar to me. I think any one you pick will work out!

bcbride17 :  I just wanted to say thank you for posting these pictures!! I am in love with the 9250 but feel the flare begins a little too low for my height, and since you mentioned 9374’s flare starts higher, that might be what I’m looking for. I’m having trouble finding the 9374 in stores to try on… would you say it’s more comofrtable than 9250?

ut0pia :  hi, I just wanted to say that I was having the same uncertainties with some of the styles I was trying on, including the Allure 9250. I was also unsure about the shape of the neckline on that one because it was a bit more angular. I ended up trying on a bunch of different Allure styles, But could not find the 9374 anywhere!!!! After looking at the pictures of it online, I decided to order it from the bridal store sight unseen!!! I had to go with my gut. It seemed like EXACTLY what I was looking for. It has the flare that starts a little higher, the buttons that go all the way down the train, the lighter fabric (like the 9250), and slight sparkle from sequins placed throughout the dress. I was nervous, but it ended up being absolutely PERFECT!!! I finally found a dress I’m in LOVE with! Unfortunately, I haven’t taken any pics of me in it yet.

ut0pia :  So my answer to you would be, yes!! If you feel the flare starts too low for you on the 9250, but you like that Allure, I think the 9374 would be perfect! If you can try on the 9215 (has been a popular one for bridal stores to have in stock) try that one…where the flare starts on that one is more similar to the 9374. So you can get some kind of idea. The style has similarities with the slight v/u in back with the buttons that go all the way down the train. That one has the tiers in back, is a LOT heavier material, and no sequins. But if you like the shape, go for the 9374!  It was soooo worth it for me ๐Ÿ˜Š & the lace is gorgeous! I’ll post pics after my sept. 2nd wedding.

sar052188 :  Hi, thank you so much for your input, it helps a lot!!  Wow you are really brave to order the dress without trying it on, but glad it worked out for you!   I really love the back button and neckline details of 9250.  I will definitely try on the 9215 to get an idea of the flare, since the 9374 is impossible to find in stores!  Are you changing the neckline of 9374 to make it rounder? Since the flare starts higher, are you able to move around more comfortably than in the 9250 (i.e., peeing, sitting, dancing, etc).  Can’t wait to see your pics! I do need to buy my dress in the next few weeks, so if you’re willing to share or PM pics of your dress, that would be helpful!!

ut0pia :  ut0pia :  hi, unfortunately I didn’t take any pics during my fitting so I have no pics to share of my dress yet! I don’t go back until I pick it up the week of the wedding.  ๐Ÿ˜•  I didn’t have to alter the neckline at all. The sweetheart neckline on the 9374 is more naturally rounded than the 9250. If you  look at the pics and the video of the dress on the Allure website, you can see details much better. ๐Ÿ™‚ It is still a fit n flare, but on me it is definitely more comfortable than the ones that the flare starts lower. Where the flare starts is perfect! Not too high, not too low. It is a little difficult to bend over, but I think that’s the case with most wedding dresses from it being structured ๐Ÿ˜‚

sar052188 :  Please send me pics if you somehow receive your dress by the 21st!  Besides 9215, which other Allure dresses do you think the 9374 is similar to?

I kinda wish 9374 had the raw edge… have you tried on 9403 or 2709 by any chance?

you look very pretty in one and 2, but I think I like 3 the best. I think your hips look great in that style of dress. Don’t worry you’ll look beautiful.
