    sakurabee :  that Eddy K is gorgeous!

    It’s probably a good idea to look out for samples/used. You’re a standard dress size (well apart from the boobs LOL) so there should be options. And would be better than stressing about whether the dress will arrive in time.

    The mori lee looks amazing on you but i love the eddy k.  So i think you should keep looking. Maybe you’ll find something similar to the eddy k.

    sakurabee :  I think it’s time to step away from the Mori Lee and discount it as an option. Pretend you never saw it. There’s no reason to settle for something that’ll make you so miserable.

    The issue with Eddy K is that it’s going to be much harder to find samples or preowned because it’s a less popular designer. So you would have to order blind. 

    That said, you could do it if you could try on one of a similar style, even if the similar style has the wrong neckline. I would be more confident in doing that with the Eddy K in the video instead of the one in your original post because it’s a simpler silhouette that’s more likely to be a good option.

    This is the dress in your video – did you try on any dresses with the same kind of cut and waistline – even if the necklines were wrong? If not, maybe you should.

    sakurabee :  this might be a stupid question, but have you actually talked to an alterations person at a salon about what would be involved in raising a neckline?

    I mean, from the beginning you’ve said you didn’t want to do that, but is that because you’ve been told it can’t be done, or are you just assuming that it can’t?

    I don’t mean you should suddenly start considering super plunging necklines, but it might not be a big deal if the neckline is only slightly too deep

    sakurabee :  I don’t think you’ve found your dress yet.  It seems the EddyK wiill swallow you up.  I think the dress would be wearing you.

    I didn’t read the post (sorry) but the Mori Lee looks gorgeous on you and is also the most beautiful dress imo. I love the lace and think it’s a lot more elegant and stylish than the ruffles. That’s just my taste though, you gotta do you!

    Could you have the lace dress altered to have ruffles? Or at a minimum, add a hoop underneath to give similar volume? Otherwise, is there any chance you could find a dress similar to the eddy k, to try on/buy right away? Sorry my advice is weak here, I feel like I would be just as much in a bind as you if I were in this position! Haha

    sakurabee :  oh god – your description of the monoboob and spillage had me wincing! (I’m an F cup myself so I feel your pain – I didn’t even try to wear strapless, I had a square neck and cap sleeves so I was able to wear a regular bra.)

    I’m wondering if it’s worth expanding your neckline selection to scoop necks with straps and v-necks that aren’t plunging? (Not like the Mori Lee you tried on on page 1 – even on the model photo you can see her sternum. Just no.)

    Like these kind of necklines.

    You’ve probably already seen this Eddy K

    I’m a big fan of scoop necklines as a larger busted girl myself – they’re often just that bit less revealing than a v-neck. It’s so hard to find them though.

    sakurabee :  I definitely think that the Mori dress is beautiful but the Eddi K dress style definitely suits your figuer best. I normally wouldn’t recommend buying blind but the silhouette is what’s working for you best and as long as you have a backup I think you should be fine (and hopefully the dress makes it in early).
