HELP! Poll FO SHO  
So I had the most tragic and frustrating news on friday. I got a call from the bridal shop telling me that even though I was emailed and told my dress was ordered and would be here for the end of Feb, it was a mistake made by a new 'trainee' and that they couldn't get my dress in after the wedding date. After telling the woman I couldn't even talk to her because I was so frustrated, I made her call my voicemail while I called my mom to deal with it all since I was at work.

I ended up calling back after work and making arrangements to come in for Saturday, which was yesterday. My goal was to purchase the dress I had tried on just a little over two weeks ago because, at the time it fit me and I was so sick of this whole issue/crap. I walked in and had literally dropped two dress sizes from excerise and stress. That's about 15 to 20 lbs. I had to sinch the waist with my hands holding the extra 2-3 inches of fabric. It also meant I could try on another dress I liked. Now I'm caught.

The simple one that I lost two dress sizes in, it's Bink's favourite, but alot of alterations need to be done. My sash added, more crinoline, and a sweetheart neckline made with cups to hold my boobs better (I think they look tragic and saggy in it). The second one, I need a size up so my back fat isn't so gross and the bodice taken in. That one is my moms favourite. I LOVE THEM BOTH. I see alot of potential in the second one, but gathering of fabric under my breastline is one of my favourite things. ACK! Either way the Sash is getting added. So I've decided to show the pictures and then from there get more feedback. I know it's ultimately my own decision. I just... am a pansy.

I appologize for the back fat, I'm working on it.

I think the bodice in the second one would be needed to taken in... and it's the size too small making my tummy pounch a bit... hmmm.....



Which dress do you like better?
Dress number one, the plain dress that has potential? (more crinoline under bum, sweetheart neckline, sash and better boobs.)
Fancy beaded bodice taffeta dress (needs size up so less back fat, sash added, bodice taken in.)

as someone that sews, unless you're going to wear a nice sturdy corset under something to cinch up your waist 2 sizes down, NEVER buy a dress that is too small for you and hope to add fabric to make it bigger, it rarely if ever comes out nice. I'd go for the first one, it's definitely simpler and suits you better, it's more flattering to bum and boobs and the second dress it's directing eyes to your middle. So yes definitely dress number one is the one to go for

I appreciate the imput. We were going to order a bigger size in in the one where my middle is showing not add more fabric, and I was going to be purchasing a corset. However, it still helps.

curious, where are you getting a corset from? a good one for actual cinching down is going to run you about $200-$300

Holy cow, they are both so so beautiful.

Its hard to tell a little from the pictures because the first one is much more flattering on you since it's the right size. But if you're going to get the right size in the second one, I think I like that one a bit more... The fabric gathering is gorgeous and the sparkle adds a little bit of life to it!

Definitely keep us updated with which one you choose, although I don't think you can go wrong with either!

I agree, I think I'm going to go with the first one though, because my tummy is hanging in the second one (It doesn't have a built in corset so I'd have to purchas a new one) and if it came in and my tummy still paunched, I'd be devastated. That a biggie for me. Plus my friend keeps asking if the seamstress will be able to get past the intricate beading on the bodice to make my boobs fit. The first one though it's starting to pale in comparison fabric wise (in my mind) it does have a built in corset and if I didn't have to hold it closed and up, then I think I would have been able to rearrange my boobs to make me feel more confident in it.

Late I know, but I hope you went with the 1st one. Beading is a bitch to alter! And I like the 1st one on you better.
