    I would say the Olivia, it looks romantic and almost floaty, and versatile enough for either casual or formal wedding. The SaBelle looks a bit heavy and fussy for me personally. but really, go with whatever makes you comfortable and feel like yourself

    @BusyBeaBee:  Honey, I would never urge you to get satin ( or is that taffeta?)  when you can have tulle and lace! Wink

    Could it even be possible that you are considering the color of the Enzoani dress in the photo (be still my heart!)

    It’s kind of hard to tell without seeing them on you, but here goes…


    PROS:  Maggie dresses usually have a lot of boning and are loved by curvier gals. this one, with the cinched in waist and full skirt, will be good at emphasising your curves and making your waist look smaller.

    CONS: It is a lot of dress and has a lot going on. I am worried about the horizontal lines and heavy fabric possibly adding bulk to the lower abdoben and hip area. This would be especially concerning if you are pear-shaped. The fabric and beading are also quite shiny, which again is not good for larger girls. May also be a bit dated.


    PROS: Softer neckline and straps will help draw the eye upward and have a slimming effect. Vertical lines in the skirt also have a slimming effect. Appears to be a more contemporary style. 

    CONS: May not have as much boning. Lighter fabric may be less forgiving and belly and hips may stand out more. (Hard to say without seeing on you.)

    In the end, I chose the Olivia. I am a similar age to you and also plus size. In my opinion, the Sabelle is kind of a young style – I’m not saying you can’t wear it, but I think you would need to have major diva attitude to pull it off. Given how you feel in the less dramatic dress, I don’t think this is you.

    I voted for Olivia… stunning dress! Not a fan of SaBelle, especially the pickups.

    ETA: I also picked Olivia because it seems like it gave you more of “that feeling” than SaBelle.

    Olivia! Hands down. Especially if you have that feeling!

    Olivia, I don’t like the pickups in the Sabelle combined with everything else, and Olivia is beautiful,  and it sounds like it makes you feel the prettiest!

    Not a fan of SaBelle. I think it looks very dated, like a dress you would see 10 years ago.
