Agree, I think the dress looks fantastic on you!

I’m not sure what you mean by puckering?

I’m guessing that the puckering is from the clips in back. Once it’s fitted appropriately, it shouldn’t do that.

Have you tried on a lot of dresses? If so, you will find that all dresses fit differently and it totally depends on the fabric, cut and thickness. So that particular dress might have a shiny fabric that shows all the creases, etc.

If I were you in order to avoid dress regret, I would try on a ton of dresses and wait to place your order until about 8 months out. Once you order, just stop thinking about the dress because it’s just a bad idea. On someone like you, most dresses will probably be figure flattering so narrow down what you really want as far as style, fabric, shape and stick to it. Keep in mind your style preference can change in a years time (I know mine did!) so try to pick something timeless and flattering in general if possible.

Hey date twin! Dress looks great on you. I’d be too nervous of my fickle, changeable dithering to commit this early though!

It’s beautiful!

Advice: don’t be afraid to commit. I totalllllly was too (seriously, just read my past posts if you don’t believe me  lol) but as soon as I did, it felt so good to have that decision under my belt, and I just moved on and haven’t regreted it once.  I didn’t have much more time to put it off though – it was 6 months away.  So once you feel like you can’t put it off any longer, you should just commit.  Good luck!

You look beautiful. I am wearing the Casablance 1957 in my wedding in August. I adore it and it does not look wrinkled at all. I think it is so unique! I first tried this dress on in October and loved it, but wanted to try on others. So I went to 2 different stores and tried on probably 50 dresses, but always came back to this one. Good luck!

I love it on you, but I’m a bit commitment-phobic . I probably tried on 100 dresses before I picked my dress!  I like to be positive.  You can always order this dress later if you still think it’s the one…
