I need some help! I bought my dress…Pronovias Lebien…and when I tried it on in store it looked so much better with a belt. Unfortunately the belt sold in store cost $500! Definitely not within my budget. So, thanks to the help of another bee, I found some appliques online that can be sewn directly onto the dress from Glory’s House. I need some opinons please ladies! I really like the first one, because I think the pearls go nicely with the lace in my dress, but I’m worried it’s a bit too wide. What do you think?
My dress – not me in it, but we have similar body types. I’m a bit smaller and definitely flatter lol.
#1 – Pearl and Rhinestone belt, 3 inches wide
#2 – Rhinestone belt, 2.75 inches wide
#3 – Mostly rhinestone belt, 2 inches wide

I would definately go with the first one! It’s gorgeous! The other two just look too uniform where the first one has some variety and has those gorgeous pearls! Are you going to sew the applique onto a ribbon and tie it around or directly onto the dress? If you do a ribbon there’s a slight possibility it will look too wide, but I think without a ribbon the bigger width would be perfect. Have you tried measuring out three inches on your dress and looking at how wide it will be? I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how small three inches really is, especially since the two ends of the applique taper so much!

I also have the leiben dress and am trying to decide between sash or no sash. Do you have a picture of your dress finished with the appliqué? Where online did you buy it? Thanks so much!!
