scipioblack :  Those are quite impressive embellishments on the first dress! However, the lace somehow “defeats” them.  Not too certain about the second dress.  I think David’s Bridal has great option for you:

These are both gorgeous from the back, dress one obviously fits better especially from the front so it’s slightly harder to envision dress two properly fitted and whether it would suit you. They’re both perfectly bridal but I don’t see any reason to buy it now, wait until you’ve had your other appointments so you have something to compare with. Unless the deal is so good you might have two dresses, in which case buy dress 1 for the reception.

I like the backs on both, but I honestly don’t care for the front of either. The first one looks more prom/pagent-like to me, and the second one looks a little..matronly (for lack of a better word). Keep looking. I think you’re going in the right direction shape wise.

I agree with pp… I like the backs but not sold on the fronts. At least you know you like illusion backs! I’d keep looking.

Yes I agree, nice backs but not so good from the front, esp round the belly area .

I’m not crazy about the design and construction of these two gowns. You have an amazing figure, and these dresses detract from it. The front of the first one has too much going on. The embellishments are competing with the lace. As for the second one, I’m not crazy about the embroidery/lace appliqué patterns. 


Keep your appointment at David’s and try on a few more. Try a few other bridal salons as well. I’m confident you’ll find some dresses that will be extremely flattering on you!  smile
