A while ago I had asked for all of your help, as I had found a dress for which I had an emotional reaction. However, I wasn’t sure about it because I felt a little matronly in it. But then, I accidentally deleted the post with my phone by accident (the joy of a cracked screen) and couldn’t hear more. I knew I really wanted to find a dress with sleeves that didn’t look too busy on my figure, and was classic and elegant.
I went to a trunk show this weekend, and they had Maggie Sottero’s Verina. I was so excited, as I had just discovered the dress online and was hoping they had it. I know not everyone likes sleeves on a dress, but I was hoping for some feedback on what you think.
Do you think it gives me enough shape? The main problem I’ve been running into with wedding dresses is that my little figure does not give much shape in dresses, even in trumpets. I feel like this one has done the best so far! I have some health conditions that make me a bit too skinny and I don’t want to look sickly.
Also, even though I cried and loved the dress, I’m scared to purchase a year out! Anyone else feel that way about “the dress”? What if I change my mind? It’s such a big purchase. I’m an indecisive person, so big decisions like this are tough. The trunk show lasts until the 4th and I can only get 10% off until then.
Let me know what you think! I love it, had the reaction I expected I would have with “the dress”, feel beautiful in it, but I’d like to hear feedback about it from others first!
Others that I liked:
Thanks ahead of time!!!!

I like the verina, clearly the sample is way too big on you, but once alterations gets ahold of it I think it would be amazing.
The second one looks good too. It gives you shape and doesn’t make you look super skinny.

The Verina is gorgeous! Once it’s fitted to your size, it will be perfect on you. It suits you well.

Um, Verina puts all the others to shame! I LOVE the sleeves! It’s just….elegant and lovely. It really is on another level from the other dresses. I see what you mean about your shape, but ta king it in at your waist and above your knee can help with that. Wait until you have to buy it, timewise, to be sure, but this looks like your ONE. 🙂

Verina for sure! It’s classic, classy, and flattering. Your shape looks great in it. I’d buy it now! I bought mine a year ahead of time. Isn’t that relatively standard?

The Verina is stunning on you! I love the illusion neckline and the sort of vine-like details. Just gorgeous!

The Verina is AMAZING! I love the sleeves and all the detailing, and the back really pushes this one over the top! As for fit, I think once it’s actually your size it will really emphasize your figure. Since you had this kind of reaction to it, and considering how beautiful it is, I’d definitely say go for it! A year out seems to be pretty standard for purchasing a wedding dress, and this looks like a winner. I had a lot of doubt/indecision when I purchased my dress about 13 months out, but I ended up going with the one I had the strongest emotional reaction to, and I’ve been very happy with my choice ever since!

I guess I’m in the minority, because I love 2 on you! I think the Verina with its heavy beading, thick details on the illusion, etc looks too heavy on your petite frame and is really weighing you down and masking your beautiful figure. I think 2 looks lighter on you and I see you versus seeing the dress.

Love the Verina on you so much more than all the choices from your first thread! You have a great figure for that style dress, not everyone can pull it off. Gorgeous!
