Great thread, I’ve only get these two pics, my Mum’s got a couple of others. It shows the back view first for both dresses. The first dress I felt like an armadillo and the pattern on the breast area is awful and as you can see I don’t suit satin. The next one was the best I looked in all the dresses I tried on that day and it felt lovely, made from taffeta but days looking at the pics I thought I looked frumpy in it expecially from the back.

@PrewittI actually like the second dress on you a lot! I can kind of see what you mean about looking a bit frumpy from the back but I think that’s more down to how you’re standing with your shoulders a bit too forward.

I only took pictures of 2 definite no’s:

1) Makes me look bigger than I am, especially in the waist:

2) Couldn’t move my arms, WAY too small, felt like a mummy:

@irishbride2be: Yes they are.  I actually bought one of them but these just didn’t do it for me.  Belle looked even worse on me. Here it is

@froydis: Thanks it was the forerunner until my 2nd shopping trip. I think it’s the straps that made me look frumpy from the back as cut off the top of my arms. I did try on a strapless A-line with a big skirt and it did look great but i’d already tried on the dress I bought, which is a fishtail shape.

This dress was really gorgeous, and I loved the red detailing. I loved it when I tried it on, but when I saw the pictures of me in it, it was just too much dress for me. I’m totally a petite shorty, and there was just more dress than there was me. I also didn’t like how the top part fit me. I didn’t feel it gave me much shape.

and the detailing on the back was probably my fav part. I had a really hard time saying good-bye to this dress.

@Hobokenbride2012: Ahh well nice to see the dress on a Bride instead of the model. Have to say it looks sooo much better on you that on the model pics i have seen of it. =) Even though you didnt pick that one. OK now I am curious which one you did pick.

I had specifically picked this one out at Davids to try on, because it was light and airy and cute.  When I put it on though, the cups were this stiff molded foam (not the shape of my cups!), and with my “child-bearin’ hips” and the separated layers, I looked totally preggers.  Not cool!
