So yesterday after a haircut and hanging out, my bestie convinced me to go try on wedding dresses for the first time. To be honest i was a nervous wreck. I had never tried on ANY bridal gowns before. I’ve always pictured myself in a ball gown or at least a full A-line but at the salon i went to they only had a few plus sized dresses to choose from and they were mostly fit and flares. So i went with it and tried on a few and apparently found my go-to designer, Mori Lee. The first one was a size 10 aline the (truly wonderful) consultant assured me she could make work on over my 44DDD bust, didn’t happen. but she held it up in front of me and it was so amazing my bestie and i both gasped! I was shocked to say the least. The first lace one is a size or so two small but i can’t believe how good i think i looked in it! Not to mention I this was an impromptu stop and i didn’t come spanx prepared. The second is the favorite of every one i showed(except mom of course, “why not a ball gown instead of a fitted one?”) but i’m not sure which i like more. It’s safe to say I’m a fan of the sweetheart neckline and it loves me as well! i tried on a few at DB where I used to work and i was not happy with any of them as i think they made me look way bigger than i am. i am so surprised i like the way the fitted makes my shape. i’ll be trying on more for sure but i have no idea what i’ll end up with. ok, end gush. here they are.
Thoughts please, Bees!

Obviously the second dress fits better, but in terms of liking the actual dress. I like the first one better. The lace is beautiful and once you have it in your size it will be amazing on you!

I prefer the first one. Even though it isn’t your size yet, you look so charming in it! I’m usually not a fan of this dress shape, but you make me reconsider 😉 I’m about the same skin type as you, and I think lace is usually more flattering on it than shiny materials though- so that might have something to do with my preference.
PS I love your hair color!
