hey girls, you have been such a GREAT help! no words can ever thank you for your honest & kind words. Thanks a million bees! I’m taking everything you all have said into serious consideration and do agree that the Calista gives a better shape, yet the vera has the idea I’m going for, but not that flattering! I’ll be looking at others and I’ll thinking of other styles! Thank you again!

The Calista definetly, so flattering.

Also, just wanted to add that whilst a PP thinks that the Calista does not have a vintage feel, I have to disagree- I really think it does! I don’t think a dress needs to be lacey to have a vintage style- I think the Calista is totally old Hollywood, vintage glam, whilst the Vera has a more cute, traditional vintage feel to it- my grandma’s wedding dress was very similar.
Accessories can add to the vintage feel of your outfit, too- type of veil, fascinator, etc

I am going to go with Keep Looking. I agree with the PPs that said the Maggie is more flattering, but the VW is more your theme. What about the Maggie Karena Royale?

I love the Calista, although personal preference – I’d see if they can put the belt above the diagonal draping. I agree with the others that said this particular dress flatters you more than the Vera. But there are definitely plenty of ballgowny dresses that use lace if lace=vintage for you.
You might try Enzoani for some flattering lace dresses, though I don’t know their price point.

I think the MAggie looks more flattering based mostly on the angle at which the photo has been taken. However, I agree with the idea to keep looking and find something that fits your hteme and your body. I would also say the Maggie is more modern with its ruching and general sillouette.

The Maggie is gorgeous on you, but the Vera has a more vintage romantic feel. I can see your dilemma! I absolutely love the Maggie, though!

I say the Vera! I think it is just as flattering as the Calista, if not more so because you don’t have all that fabric around your waist! I think it is timeless and beautiful, and you look gorgeous in it!

Being a military wife myself, I can get the jist of your wedding vibe I think.
Forgive me if I may say this but I prefer the strapless style on you, but don’t love *that* dress, and I like the second dress, but the style is not as flattering on you.
Weightloss or not, you look fantastic in a strapless 🙂
