I just purchased this dress and loved how it meshed everything together that I was looking for, soft flowy pick ups, gorgeous train, swarovski crystals, corset back, satin bodice and a soft flowy organza skirt. I envisioned this to be perfect for my winter wedding. So I ordered it in white. I ordered this dress on line purchased it a size smaller (16) than what I wear right now, it was a pre-loved dress, and to my budget, was more than what I wanted to spend, but I got shopping happy and purchased it without trying it on, I love the dress, but after showing my moh and the reaction she gave me i am second guessing my decision……she said “oh ya”, I was expecting a little more, but…………is this an “oh ya” type of dress? I am driving myself crazy here wondering if I made the wrong decision….ugh, can you please tell me your honest opinion? i mean the whole size smaller thing, scares me somewhat, but I have been on my weightloss journey and have already lost a size in the past 2 months and I fit the size 16 measurements in the bust and hips, my waist needs the work which I know I can do in the next 11 months……

I think this is a very beautiful gown, and I might have said “oh ya” when you showed it to me. Saying “oh ya” is not a bad thing. When I say it, I mean it in a very good way; like “Wow, what a beautiful gown!!!” Without seeing it on you though, I can’t give an opinion on whether or not it suits you. I am sure it is very beautiful on you though. Congratulations on your weight loss so far. I know you can lose the rest, so you should be fine 🙂

I think this dress is so much more than an “oh ya” It’s fricken gorgeous! Like noritake22 said, we can’t tell if it suits you without seeing it on you. But even with that, I think it’s a wonderful dress and deserves a little more of a reaction 🙂

It’s a spiffing gown as we say in England! (That means excellent, great, stylish, fantastic etc by the way)
Listen, when I first started showing dress pics to my nearest and dearest their comments where things like “you look like a mummy” (the Egyptian dead for thousands of years kind of mummy), “didn’t the cartoon figure Amazon woman wear something just like that” and so on. Unless you’re really into wedding dresses or you have been to at least a couple of stores to see dress in real life most people won’t have a clue what to say. I wouldn’t worry about it, and in the end, it doesn’t matter what your Maid/Matron of Honor thinks as long as you love the dress.

i think its a gorgeous gown! i myself would never order a dress without having tried it on. but now that i have tried on so many dresses, i can look at that one and tell you the waistline will have a positive slimming effect, and the flowiness of the skirt will hide anything you might be self-conscious about below the waist. so i think you are safe. and in general i think it is such a beautiful gown! totally my style! it gets an “oh wow!” from me 🙂

The gown is gorgeous and if you love it don’t let other peoples opinions get to you.

I think it’s an absolutely gorgeous gown. I’ve actually never seen anything like it, which makes it even more beautiful to me! Maybe she reacted like that because she can’t picture it on you. I think once you get the gown in and try it on she’ll have a better reaction! And “oh ya” might not be a bad reaction. I definitely wouldn’t second guess it because of what she said.

THANK YOU so much for the positive comments, I really do appreciate them. I was so worried about the dress perhaps being a bit too out there but I really do love her and in the end that’s all that matters. I can’t wait till she arrives and I can finallly try her on. I know it’s a bit risky ordering something I never tried on before but it was a risk I was willing to take and I am praying that dress will work for me! I am hoping all my reading on this board with the slimming styles and what works and doesn’t work will have payed off.

I have no idea how anyone could “Oh Ya” a dress that looks like that! WOW it’s beyond stunning. It’s a breathtaking, leave you speechless sort of dress – but in a good way. I hope it works out for you. Any pics?
