    The Willow looks like it would have more give to it, but it might just be the model/lighting/etc. Why not try them on at a local shop, or something of a similar design to at least get the idea?

    @Amitchell12:  partial to the Windsor…cuz that’s my cat’s name!! Haha no but in all seriousness, I think it’s much more simple and elegant ๐Ÿ™‚


    ETA: I also think the deeper cut in the neckline of the willow will allow for a lot of cleavage, even with the lace…maybe a little too much, yanno?

    @Amitchell12:  It’s hard to vote without actually seeing the dresses on you, but I love the Windsor.  I gasped a little when I scrolled down to it!  The neckline is a little higher and the sleeves give it a little more of a “modest” look.  I think it has the elements you’re looking for while maintaining a very feminine, almost fairytale princess feel.  I’m not usually one to love a fairytale princess kind of dress, but it seriously is gorgeous!


    I would definitely recommend trying it on in person, though, even if you decide you want to order it online.  There were dresses I thought were awesome in the pictures online, but when I tried them on, they just looked awful on me.  Sometimes you’ll be surprised with what looks best on you!  Good luck deciding!

    Both of these dresses are so stunning! Can’t go wrong with either!

    @Amitchell12:  I’m saying the Windsor because I think it will flatter your chest more. The Willow has that high cut neckline that can make a chesty girl look like she has total matronly bosoms, so I’d steer clear. They’re both gorgeous, though. Great choices.

    I say the second one… They’re both gorgeous, but I’m full chested, and I tend to find those high, straight-across necklines make my chest look positively enormous, and they throw the rest of me out of proportion.  A V-neck is generally more flattering on a larger bust because it visually breaks up the chest space and draws the eye down rather than across.

    I wanted to be a maggie bride SO BAD but I wear a bridal size 18… and so I had no luck ๐Ÿ™ I didn’t have many places to look either because I live in Wyoming so I shopped around in Utah and Idaho. NONE of the sample sizes even came CLOSE. I couldn’t try a SINGLE one on ๐Ÿ™ I’m still a little heart broken. The dress I bought is lovely but my heart has been set on being a maggie bride for YEARS. ๐Ÿ™

    I hope you have better luck than I did.

    @Amitchell12:  v-necks are more flattering for busty girls. The high neck will make your chest look even bigger. I say the Windsor. Also, if you’re worried about the v-neck being “too low” i’m sure a seamstress could add some fabric and fix that for you.

    ETA: I’m also a big fan of the lace on the top of the Windsor, not so much the first one.
