    You seem to really want to take a chance on the ruffled dress so instead of asking for more opinions go for it. People are naturally going to vote based on what style they prefer and having a pic with a dress you already look good in may also influence the votes. As far as the size and whether it will fit that all depends. Measurements are helpful but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will fit well on you. Seeing it on someone with a similar frame is also not a guarantee so my answer is I can’t say if it will or wont.

    Objectively I do not think the ruffle dress will look as nice as the lace dress. It has a drop waist which will make your legs look shorter. Also I think the ruffles will look frilly and dated in a few years while the lace is timeless. 

    Sounds like you really want to take a chance on the ruffle dress and are looking for someone to back you up on your decision. I have no idea what your budget and timeline is but it seems like you’ll regret it if you don’t try it on.

    sakurabee :  lol @ drill. Understood and I totally get it since I’m known for going with my gut even if its not the most practical decision. Sometimes you have a good feeling about a situation and it won’t leave you alone. Good luck!

    The bodice on both dresses are very similar in shape, just one is more dropped than the other.  For that reason I feel that the ruffle dress would fit similarly to the lace dress.  I do agree with PP that the ruffle dress will look dated in time.  Really love the lace one on you.  But do what you feel is right!

    That lace dress is the absolute perfect fit for your curvaceous Body!  The one you want to order has a smaller cup size and I think you are going to bubble up and look very va va vroom up top.  Your waist looks absolutely tiny and very bridal in the lace dress.

    sakurabee :  Hi, in the first post, did you write that you wanted a tulle type bottom, but a shiny, shimmery top?  I happened to find a gown, looking for something altogether different myself, but happened across this one and thought of you, is this more the style you are looking for?    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beautiful-Wedding-Dress-Bridal-Gown-White-Size-6-Small-Casablanca-/172054574275?hash=item280f4074c3:g:8wUAAOSwbsdVKWDg

    sakurabee :  or maybe something more like this? I think ruffles like this would give you more height.

    sakurabee :  I feel like the corset drops lower on the ruffled dress than on the lace one so it is hard to tell how it will look on your body. Some brides look better in a dress with a natural waist (like the lace one) and others look better with drop waists and I am having a hard time visualizing you in the second one.
