    I love the first one on you. Makes your waist look super-tiny! You’re not chubby–ignore your mom’s negativity and go with the one you love.

    I am probably around the same age as your mom. I don’t think either one of them make you look matronly, but the second one does give off a younger feel and seems more princessy. The other one is more grown up.

    Honestly, the 2nd dress is not my style. I don’t like the sleeves. I prefer dress # 1. I actually think, dress # 2 looks more “matronly.”

    And by Size 10, do you mean regular clothes size or bridal dress size? Either way, you are in no way fat. I’d be hard-pressed to find the arm fat you are referring to.

    @SweetRose2011: My mother’s the same way. I had to buy the 12-14-16 in the pattern I’m using and she blew the frig up, lol.

    Okay, first of all you are not chubby! And I love your style, you love you some sparkle just like me! 🙂 Both dresses are so much fun, like you are a ballerina, but I like the first one better for your body, it really flatters you.

    @SweetRose2011: If you are referring to Bridal sizes then your Mom needs to be informed that Bridal sizes run small by at least two sizes. A bridal size 10 is actually a street size 6.

    YOU..chubby???  No way!!  I think dress #1 looks absolutely gorgeous on you!  I wouldn’t change the neckline at all either–I think it looks very ‘bridal’ as is!

    Number 1 for me. I don’t think you look chubby at all (far from it actually). Do what makes YOU happy :). Congrats!!!
