I just had my gorgeous baby boy and I didnt have an opportunity to try on dresses until now… but no where stocks the two i like… ive tried everywhere…
I have posted pics below 🙂 the first two are of me trying on a mori lee dress in a similar shape to show you what the mermaid ruffle looks like on me… (bit concious of these as im not back to pre pregnancy yet and sample size was quite small!) what do you think of the style on my shape? and if ok which of the two do you like best below!
only 6 months to the big day and im fuffled please help!!
Now my dilemma is… because i cant find the two dresses below should i stick with the one above or should i order blind!!
Thanks in advance to everyone who takes the time out to help:):)

Did you check order dates on these dresses? My Allure dress is now ready to ship and was ordered in mid Sept. Not sure if they do rush fees.

Thanks for replying brandnewbride 🙂
Destinationic they said 16 weeks roughly 20 weeks for the mori lee.. they said start of septemeber/middle of septemeber at the latest 🙂 cutting it very fine.

They are all so pretty- great silhouette for your figure (congrats on baby!). I love #2, but any of them would be amazing i think:)

@mummyb: I think you look great in the one you tried on! I tried on a very similiar beaded gown bodice (your second picture). I thought I would love it on..but it fit my shape a bit odd and when I sat down..the whole bodice sort of shifted/moved up (on me, it was kind of like a tube wrapped around my mid section. All of the beading made it stiffer and not around my curves, if that made any sense. I thought I would absolutely love it and when I tried on dresses, it didn’t make the first cut! I also have a short waist though and it doesn’t look like you do, so maybe you wouldn’t havce that same issue. It’s a gorgeous dress…I think you would look great in all of them. I can’t believe you just had a baby, you look great. Hey, just a thought, you might want to get a dress with a corset back because if you are going to keep dropping weight, you may be too small for whatever size you order when it comes in and a corset back would give you some wiggle room as far as that would go. I mean, that top dress almost fits you…not sure how much further you need to go with dropping baby weight (doesn’t look like you need to at all lol) but if you dropped even a little that first one would fit you and I think that beaded one probably has a zipper back. Just a thought though!!!! I still can’t believe you just had a baby. That is amazing. I’m getting married 10/5 and I’m at the point where I have to order a dress or make the wedding for next spring lol..so be careful about where you order from because I’m already being told I’m cutting it close. Some of the gowns I’m looking at might not be in until 8/9 the way it is so I assume you will be in the same boat!!

@mummyb: Sorry, I didn’t even answer your question. Out of the 2 pics you were considering, I’d go with the second. I think it looks softer and curvier and would look amazing on you. 🙂

I like the second one. When I see the first one, I think of lace spandex; the top doesn’t have any substance (I know a big part of it is the model). The bustline looks a little strange too, perhaps due to the model, but hard to say.
Honestly the one you tried on to check the lines of the dress is very nice too.

Stick with the first one! It looks great on you and I like it better than the other 2 anyway.

I also tried on the second dress and it was one of the top choices. However, I didn’t get it in the end because I found one that I liked better. It also depends on your venue, the first one is great for an outdoor, rustic or beach wedding, also a day wedding. The second and third are more for formal weddings in my opinion (especially the second one because of the bling:)).
I don’t think you would have a fitting problem, they were actually quite flattering and we have similar body types. But you really have to be aware that the “fluffy” stuff at the bottom is pretty wide!

i think im going for the plunge and buying the mori lee 1241 blind!!! eeek…
I love truffles… i totally agree i think the first dress of me wearing the dress is quite simple and would be perfect for a beach or day… but as mine is an all day event and quite formal… and my bridesmaid dresses are very bold i need something to stand out and the first wouldnt quite cut it!!
did u try on the mori lee 1241! could you give me more details of how it was like on… is the beading more blingy in real life as its described as diamante but it doesnt look very bling bling in the above pic… also did it fit like a mermaid without embellesment would… im wondering what it would be like when sitting down… do u have any pics of u in the dress?? 🙂 sorry for all the questions just hard when i cant even try it on 🙂 xx
