@J_stanaitis:  I would not order the dress if you have never tried it on. That’s a HUGE commitment (and expensive!). I know when I was trying on dresses some would look completely different on me.

@J_stanaitis:  I did exactly that – I ordered my gown over the phone without ever having tried it on.

I did go and try similar style gowns (mermaid) and knew they suited me, but I don’t have a Vera Wang stockist where i live, so I had to order it from the States (I’m in Australia!). I had never even seen or touched it in real life.

In the end I have my gown now, it fits like a glove with no alterations necessary and I’m in love with it.

It’s a huge gamble and there’s no turning back. If you go down that path, be sure to try on as many similarly shaped gowns as possible. Try ones in a similar style and fabric to get an idea of how it will sit on your body.

I was the same as you – I tried on many other gowns, but my heart kept going back to the Vera that I saw in photos, so I went with my heart.
