Honestly in my opinion you have a nice figure and even though this dress is nice I think you could find one in nudget or possibly under that suits your figure more and shows curves without showing too much like I would be looking for with mine. Smile

I was the same to some extent. It was actually more difficult for me to say “yes” to the dress because I was being too picky and was not ready to commit. Once I found “the dress”, I slept on it for one night and couldn’t stop talking about it. Like you, I was acting like it was already my dress. My fiance knew that I was in love with the dress, and drove me to the boutique the day after I tried it on and I bought it.

The only thing that has bothered me about “putting my money where my mouth is” and buying the dress, is my silly fiance saying, “Imagine all the outfits you could have bought for that amount of money?” Gah! Men say the silliest things sometimes lol.

I am having the same problem!  I’ve been to try on “the dress” on FOUR different occasions.  My mom and I had plans today to go out and BUY IT!  ….but I cancelled.

When I’m wearing it, I feel like it’s probably the one.  When I get home, I realize that yes, it’s 95% the one.  Then a few weeks pass and I look at all the pics of me in it….I’m “meh” about it.  I just can’t commit, but I really don’t feel like going out to other stores and continuing to look.  It always comes back to “that dress” as being the best of the lot, but I still feel so uncertain.  It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty good.

Not much advice here, but I hear ya!  Good luck.  Maybe after your mom and grandma see it, you’ll be able to be more sure. πŸ™‚

I went through the same thing… I had been to 4 salons in 3 days, tried on over 30 dresses, and thought I found the one, because it had everything I thought i wanted. We ordered it and as soon as I got out of the salon I freaked out, put it on hold, slept on it, (of course the next day the salon was closed!) and after horrible anxiety for 3 days was finally able to get it cancelled with a credit. Went back to the salon a couple weeks later and found one that I loved, which was completely different from the first. Went from a lace mermaid to a taffeta ballgown with pockets :). I slept on it for a couple weeks feeling 99% sure, and went I went back I didn’t let myself talk myself out of it. It still makes me nervous that we ordered it, but I know I love the dress so I have to relax! Same for you. πŸ™‚ The dress looks great, if you love it – get it. If there are things you want to change about it – then don’t. That was my problem with the first one, I wanted to change things on it and still ordered it, and now I hate it! Sooo glad I canceled!
