Hey Everybody! First post here! I am totally torn between Essense of Australia 1845 and Allure 8800! Which dress do you think suits my body better? (if either) I am sorry that the pictures are not that great! If you have a reason as to why you like one over the other, please share!
Essense of Australia

I think it flatters all body types. That was the dress I choose for myself but in the end, went with another dress.
I still admire it on other people though!

The Allure for sure. There’s something about having the lace, bling, AND illusion neckline all in the same area of the Essence dress that makes it a little busy, almost cheaper looking to me. Also the lace on the allure is much better, the essence looks sparse down at the bottom.
The Allure is stunning on you!

I think the Allure looks better on you. They both look equally flattering from the front, but I think the back of the Allure is more flattering. The sleeves and style on the Essence of Australia dress make your back look very broad in the shoulders.

annalise9: I totally agree about the broad shoulders thing!
Thank you guys! I feel a little guilty loving the Allure more since my mom cried when she saw me in the Essense of Australia

I am so surprised at how many people love the allure. I love the essence on you! No question!!!

But I’d cut off the illusion part in the front

I like the Australia one better It has more shape in the front, and I like the back.
They are not 2 tremendously different styles, though.

colld88: I’ve asked about doing that but they said it would make the sleeves difficult to stay up, so then the sleeves would need to be altered to be closer together, and that’s all just a wad of cash i don’t have in the budget lol! My Mother-In-Law, Maid/Matron of Honor, and sister all agree with you though that it would be better without the illusion lol
