    Sunshine024 :  I think you look completely beautiful in the dress. The lace detailing is gorgeous! Brides are told to try on dresses in every style becuase of exactly this reason. Sometimes what you love on isn’t what you thought you would. 

    Have you tried the style you thought you wanted? If not, go try on this style in stores. The dress will look different on every person. You must try them on for yourself. Even if it’s not the exact dress. Try on a similar satin dress with no detailing, see it on. Then decide on the which dress to buy.

    Sunshine024 :  i think it looks lovely on you, but unless you’re in a tight timeline situation (like, you need to order it NOW), i’d go and try on a few more dresses first. not because you can do better, but because it may help give you peace of mind. right now, you’re still kinda doubting it, and that doubt ha a way of planting itself and growing in the 6+ months you’re waiting for your gown to actually come in. try on a few more dresses so that you feel 100% on this when you pull the trigger.

    Keep looking! You look lovely in that dress but I actually prefer your inspiration dress. I am not a huge fan of lace either, it’s beautiful but it doesn’t go well with every style. Have you tried on something similar to the inspiration dress?

    I love the dress you’re wearing! esp the lace at the bottom, its form fitting and shows your curves. I really don’t think the dress in the picture will do your body justice. It sounds like you need to keep searching though, you can always come back to the first dress if needed.

    It looks beautiful on you!! I had that same feeling when dress shopping for my first wedding. I was pretty sure that dress was the one but it was nothing like I had envisioned. I tried on a bunch more dresses and nothing else compared to that dress so I went back & purchased it. I never had that overwhelming “I’m a bride, this is IT!!!” moment; it was a very logical decision for me, even though that dress wasnt what I had “planned”. If you have time, try on a bunch more. You’ll figure out pretty quickly if you’re wasting your time or not!

    I think the A-line you posted would look stunning on you.  Don’t get me wrong, you look lovely in the lace number, but I do think thatan A-line would work better for your figure.

    I think you should try on a dress closer to your original vision before you make any decisions!

    Your inspiration dress is designed for a person with much smaller boobs. I would keep looking.

    Yes, have to agree with pps who say keep looking . The dress you have on  is pretty , if a bit generic and I agree the   inspiration  dress is made for a smaller   boobed woman . But there are plenty of classic ones like it that have more back and straps etc  Do  try them.

    The dress looks great on you but if you are asking us then it’s probably not WOWing you. I’m sure there’s a dress out there that you will really love. I am a medium/large size and was annoyed at some bridal stores where many dresses only came in small/xsmall sizes. Don’t lose hope, you will find your perfect dress. You don’t have to settle, there are plenty of stores to try.

    Sunshine024 :  I ended up getting a dress totally different to what I thought I wanted and I am so glad I did because it looks the best of me. By The Way, March 22nd bride here – it’s soon coming around!

    Sunshine024 :  If time is on your side I would recommend you try on your inspiration dress and compare pictures.  You look really beautiful in this dress, don’t get  hung up on the fact that it’s not what you wanted.  Focus on how it looks on you and how you feel.  I bought a dress that looked totally different from what I originally wanted.  PS. I have big boobs and I found that strapless looked best on me, don’t be afraid to shy away from sleeves.

    Sunshine024 :  I voted “keep looking”, especially if you haven’t actually tried on the one/style you’re dreaming about yet. I also tried on about 30 dresses and was pretty ready to just pick one and be done but I hadn’t tried on my dream dress yet and my mom and ‘maids wouldn’t let me buy before I had. I’m so grateful. Ended up buying my dream dress off the hanger moments after I finally got to try it on later that same day.
