almamelissagonzales:  I agree with the PP.  I will admit Im not too crazy about the bottom but you look beautiful in it. only you can answer for yourself if its the one. if you didnt get that “this is the one” “omg im a bride” feeling then I would keep looking (and perhaps come back to it)

I’m not crazy about the bottom, but it gives you a really lovely figure I think that it would look amazing with some crinoline underneath.

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of the dress but it does suit your figure well! I agree with pp about adding crinoline underneath as well.

It seems too tight around the upper thigh region. I think it needs something under the skirt to poof it out. The colour is lovely and the lace is very attractive

i’m not a big fan of the sudden transition to the skirt either but that is just my opinion. the colour is pretty and it looks good on your figure. if you love it, go for it!

almamelissagonzales:  It’s OK but I think you can do better. I think you’d look better in a slim modified a-line (which is quite similar to what you have now but flares out at the mid hip instead of the thigh).

I do really like the colour on you. I also like  each of the lace patterns individually, but not both of them together. It looks like the skirt and bodice are from different dresses.

If it’s within your budget, the Maggie Sottero Emma springs to mind (straps are removable):

almamelissagonzales:  It’s a very pretty dress. I worked high-end designer retail in NYC for years, so I have somewhat of a working background in fashion. 

I think it’s flattering, and the style is unique. The color is perfect on you. If you adore the style, I think you should go for it. If you’re having reservations, I think it’s probably because of the bottom cut of the dress. 

Speaking purely aesthetically, the fact that the different fabric on the bottom begins at a very sharp straight hem is a little more severe than most gowns that you’ll see on the Bee. The fabrics are very different, and the horizontal hem tends to echo the largest part of your body (width wise). That being said, you’re slim and have a great figure, so I think you can rock it.

However, because of the cut on the bottom, you’re going to have the effect you have in the photo. See how the fabric on the bottom is kind of clinging to the inner part of your legs? That will most likely be amplified when you walk. The fabric at the bottom is a much lighter weight than the fabric at the top. The skirt will most likely cling to you and sort of go in between your legs, so it won’t look like a flowing fit and flare, but more clingy. Adding an additional layer of crinolin on the bottom only would solve this, but it would also transform the silouette into more of a mermaid look.

I’d just consider that before you purchse. If you like that look, or like the idea of adding a layer and going more mermaidy on it then I’d say you found your dress!

You look great, and it’s a beautiful unique design. Just offering some very detached “fashion” kind of advice.

Nay. The texture is not flattering.

You have an amazing body but this dress does not give the wow factor.

I agree with raspberrymojito: 

seems like there is to much going on. I say keep looking.
