Hi bees! I’ve been lurking for a while, but I would really like some advice!
Basically, I’ve fallen in love with the Nicole Miller Dakota dress, however, it’s nowhere to be found in the UK *at all*, so I would have to order it online (and if it’s no good, I would lose out on quite a chunk of money – delivery and customs charges).
Therefore, I’ve been trying on wedding dresses here to get a feel of whether I’d like it or not.
I went to David’s Bridal yesterday, and they didn’t have anything similar, but I did try on a few different shapes, so I’d really like to get some opinions on which one looks best on me!
Just a note – I’m pretty self-conscious about my arm/back fat, so I’m not 100% sure I want to wear a strapless dress, however, I really love the look of strapless…
1) White by Vera Wang – grey dress
2) Flowy, sheath dress – I thought the gold sash looked lovely with it
(This is the backfat I’m worried about – this dress actually fit pretty well and wasn’t tight, so I think this is just how my upper back/arms will look on the day)
3) Mermaid 1 – lots of tulle at the bottom
4) Mermaid 2 – there were parts of this I liked, but I didn’t feel this was ‘the One’
Also, this is the Nicole Miller Dakota:
I’m really nervous about taking the leap and ordering online without trying it on!
I’d really appreciate any advice about which shape looks best on me, whether I’d suit a mermaid dress, and if you know any plain mermaid dresses in the UK!
Thanks so much bees!! xxx
