The JA dress is more expensive – in the UK it costs around double (Anniston is about £900, the JA dress £1700)

I tried on Anniston, and it’s beautiful and superflattering (not that you need it at 105lbs!)

I never saw the JA in the flesh, but I tried on a similar, more expensive gown, that was heavenly. 

The lead time on wedding dresses is about 6 months.

Hello

I wore Anniston and LOVED it in Canada it costs around 1200 not including the alteration costs ..everybody LOVEED my dress and i felt amazing in it..did not want to take it off πŸ™‚  this dress is perfect for showing off your figure…small waists especially stand out…if u go check my post “i finally have my dress” u will c pics of me before and after alterations AND in the end from the wedding..also other fellow Anniston brides posted their pics πŸ™‚

I got mine (i was in the short time frame because my plans changed few months before the wedding) here from somebody who changed their mind about wearing Anniston.  It was 4 sizes too big but my amazing seamstress took care of that πŸ™‚ so for me i did not have to wait long to get it. When i was in the bridal shops thu they said rush order around 3 months for normally anywhere between 6-10 months πŸ™‚

I almost bought the Anniston in the states, the midwest to be exact and it was around $850 before alterations.

@norahw: aww thank you for ur compliment. Mine was in Ivory but i have seen the gold one in person and it is beautiful as well πŸ™‚ 

with ur tiny waist i say go with a smallest six so u will not lose too much of the corset look when it is tight.  My measurements are 87-63-89 if that helps..mine was a size 8 when i got it and it ended up getting down to somewhere between 2-4 for u smallest is better if u need some padding around the bust that is no problem. I had cups sewn in just to get a little lift πŸ˜‰ Bridal gown sizes are a bit different from normal (about 2+ more) I normally wear size 1-2 (used to fit into 0 back then before my but decided to get a little rounder leaving me with jeans that fit my hips but are to small for my waist) 

You will love this dress i promise u i would wear it again if i could lace myself up and just walk around. I may later make it a little shorter and use it as a cocktail dress mainly for a fancy dinner out with my other half πŸ˜‰
