@cupcakesnpies:  Whoa, that’s really strange.

I like the dress you’ve picked, but the dropped waist and big skirt make you appear shorter. Have you tried other silhouettes?

@cupcakesnpies:  I think a mermaid with a more flared skirt or an A-line would be more flattering. I do like the floral appliqués and the rouching on that dress, though. It’s a nice look.

Gosh, what an awful store! Good on you for sticking up for youself, I can’t believe they would try to pull something like that. 

Your dress is lovely, but I agree with the PP that perhaps a softer modified mermaid/trumpet would be more flattering. I feel the ruffles need to start a little higher, the current style kind of cuts you off a little.

OMG that is the most ridiculous story I’ve ever heard! I’m glad you told the truth to the manager, because surely the shop assistant must have known the manager would try and CHARGE you for damages, if she was that scared of being fired. Jeez.

 

That dress really flatters your curves! Although I’m not sure if it’s the massive flower, or because it was a sample, but the neckline looks a little high on you? I don’t know.

I went there too!  I fell in love with a dress, but I couldn’t find out who the designer was.  They called me on monday to let me know it had been sold but I could order another one but it would be a $60 rush fee, and and extra $100 to get it made in white on top of the $25 shipping fee.  I didn’t want to pay that but I was going to because I loved the dress so I went there the following monday to order and try on another dress I had liked and then the owner called the company and told me there was no way to get the dress I really wanted on time.  I left the store crying.  I still  have dress regret and settled on a different dress.  The dress was originally $1100 but with all the fees and stuff they were trying to add it would have been over $1400.

@cupcakesnpies:  You know, I like this dress and think it’s pretty but agree that it shortens you…I would keep looking!

It is so pretty, but shortening…post pics after you try a mermaid- I think that style would suit you:)

@cupcakesnpies:  That’s crazy!

To echo PP’s, I’m totally digging the way that bustline/waist fits you but the bottom half of the dress doesn’t do your (clearly nice) figure any justice! My SIL is 4’11”, busty, and hippy, and she wore a fit and flare dress that looked beautiful on her. I would lean in that direction!

Let me see if I can find a pic…

@cupcakesnpies:  Personally I think it overpowers your small frame. Its a little too busy up top & at the bottom. Maybe find a dress that has one or the other.

I can’t believe you had to deal with that crazy store! I like the dress on you, but I have to agree with the PP’s, I would keep looking:) This may not be THE ONE!
