HELP! Fiance wants something sexy, fitted, and modern. Mom (who is NOT normally a girly girl) wants a ballgown, big and pouffy to hide my stomach which carries all my weight (not in a mean way lol). I love them all, for different reasons.
1. Mori Lee Ballgown
This dress was in a sample size I could NOT try on. This is just me holding the dress up against my body. I love the option of adding sleeves for reception when I take the veil out. My mom loves this one. My bridesmaids all do not like this one. The photos don’t do it justice, the colour is dreamy and the belt is amazing. Once in my size, I would alter the neckline to a sexier sweetheart or v-neck with the sleeves on. Although I know I wouldn’t be self consious in this dress because it hides my fat tummy,I am worried it looks too sweet, especially for a downtown evening wedding that we are trying to feel elegant and a bit sexy.
Price is $1300, includes the belt.
2. Jasmine Mermaid
This dress is stunning. The lace is modern and the tulle catches my breathe! I woiuld add a full crinoline to the bottom to pouf it out more. This sample was too big, so the chest area and hips were not snug or fitting correctly. I love the straps, and I know my Fiance would love how fitted and sexy this dress is. I am a little wary being a plus sized girl in a mermaid dress about looking like a lumpy potato. This is the priciest which weighs heavily on my mind. My bridesmaids love this, my mom thinks it isn’t flattering on me.
Price is $1600, I would also need to order a belt on top of that price.
3. Bonny A-line
This dress is really pretty in person. The mesh piece is edgy and daring which I love, but it doesn’t actually show cleavage which my Fiance wants. This sample was too big, so it would fit tighter when ordered in, and give me a better waist than in the photos. I love the long train, it would be pretty once bustled. My bridesmaids all dismissed this dress as boring. My mom actually loves this one the best, she thinks it matches the edginess and sexiness I am looking for, without having to worry about it being flattering on my tummy. It is almost half the price of the Jasime dress, which means I would have that much more money to help put into other details- veil, dj etc.
Price is $840. I would also need to order a belt on top of that price.
