I currently have a used Paloma Blanca #3609 dress with French Alencon Lace with Chiffon Pick-up Skirt. It was the very first dress I had tried on upon my dress search, but now, I’m having second thoughts.
Here are also pictures of the POB Maeve from their Vineyard collection.
What do you girls think? Shall I keep my Paloma Blanca or opt for the simple, A-line look of the Priscilla of Boston Maeve in Silk Taffeta?
I’m not sure what would be most flattering for my petite, 5’4″, 110lb frame.
Help is much appreciated!

Number 2! Wow. My friend is very small, probably only 5’2. She got married in a dress with a big-ish skirt (actually it was a super princess dress) and oh my goodness, it looked amazing.

I love number two. It looks amazing!

I love the second one as well, but I thought POB was no more? Can you still order their dresses somewhere?

I think the pick ups make you look a bit shorter & overwhelm your frame. I had the same problem & bought the same Paloma dress as you but found it without pickups. Your seamstress can take these out so you don’t have to buy another dress. Good luck!

You look very lovely in the first dress. Unfortunately Priscilla of Boston is no longer in business. They closed their doors in December. The company to whom they belong decided to focus on David’s Bridal instead.
Have you looked at Watters? Their Austin dress is a cross between the POB Maeve and your first dress.

I think that the A-line silhouette would look really good on you, especially this Amsale dress!

@Sarahbear: Yes! I’ve tried on a few dresses since, and I tend to gravitate towards the Biggish skirts!
