AW: Dress Porn -- MORE PICS ADDED

So I went today & tried on dresses for the first time! I had a really fun time & I'm so happy I went because I felt beautiful in pretty much everything & I am perfectly good with my body :)

This was my very first dress, it was on my inspiration pics of dresses I love so I was really excited but I really didn't like the top on me AT ALL. I tried on 1 more dress with straps & realized I definitely want strapless. 


Here's another that I like in the picture now that I'm looking at it but I honestly don't remember trying it on so I can't tell if I liked/disliked it or why:


This one was a little too busy for me & I felt too constricted in my legs which I didn't like at all.

And... last but not least... My favoritesttttt ever!!!!!

ETA: More because I'm an AW

This one made my grandmom & best friend cry & it was actually my 2nd favorite but when I put it on the 2nd time I didn't like it as much.

This one made my mom cry -- especially the veil  even though I'm not wearing a veil. I liked it but didn't love it.

    I think you look gorgeous in all of them.  Honestly, you could choose any of the above and I would think it was perfect.

    And, for the record, I don't think your boobs look too big at all.

    Oooooh!!!

    You look lovely in all of them, but 2 and 4 are definitely my favorites!

    It helps SO MUCH to have pictures. I don't rely on mirrors. (Bonus points for whoever gets that reference!)

    Yaga, yes! I want it low, loose-kinda curls & a flower or something. No veil. 

    Jaycee, thank you!!!!!

    Elle, thank you & I don't think so either. I really felt great in all of them but I wanted to see for myself in pictures later to make sure I wouldn't regret not having the surgery after the fact, KWIM?

    Desert, those 2 are my favorites also. I really wish I could remember what the deal was with #2 but for some reason I can't at all.

    Totally.  Dude, I'm starting to want implants.  I've always said I'm ok with small boobs, but the older I get (and thus, the less often I can shop in juniors without feeling ridiculous) the more I'm realizing that clothes just don't look right on me.

    <div>I vote do what ya gotta do to make YOU happy. I think I will have the surgery eventually but I since I'm ok with it now I will wait. I would like to be able to breast feed if I decide to have kids so after that would be ideal. </div>

    I agree that you look gorgeous in all of them, but 3 and 4 are my favorites! : ) I tried on one mermaid style and didn't like feeling constricted either. I love the strapless on you though!

    Ok I'm going out on a limb here... I only like #4 on you.

    Here's why:
    #1 reminds me of a (cough) mature bride
    #2 is a great shape on you, but I dont like the sheer part of the skirt and how it stands out from the undershape
    #3 is busy, and doesnt flatter you as much as a softer look
    #4 I LOVE on you! It shows your have a natural curvy shape, but it doesn't hang wierd or anything. Plus, lace has grown a special place in my heart (and closet)

    Liv -- Thank you so much!!  The girls were pretty tucked away for the most part in just about every dress, I was a very happy camper about that!! 

    Yaga -- LMAO! You crack me up :)


    Sorry gals, I HAVE to go to sleep. I am exhausted, been up since 6:30am & I've been in 3 different states today. It's been an extremely long day. 

    GOOD NIGHT!!!!!!

    Sometimes I have to shop petites for pants (like, slacks, not jeans).  I'm not really short enough to need it for everything, but, as I've mentioned before, I have short legs.

    All my jeans are "short" sizes.

    RDR - you look amazing in all of them!  But I love #4 mostest.  You look amazing.

    And your boobs look normal in all of them.  Except #1.  I think the straps accentuate the chest.

    This makes me really happy. Honestly, I've met you in person, and this might sound creepy, but one of my first thoughts was "wow, she has an AMAZING figure" Also, if I had to guess in person, I'd put your boobs at a large C. I was really surprised when you said your actual size.

    I love dress #2 and #4. I think #2 is actually my favorite! I'm so glad you had fun, and I think you'll look amazing in anything you choose.

    RDR I agree I think #4 looks best on you. You look comfortable and happy in and I am partial to lace.

    I sometimes go to the petites section for dress pants too. I'm only 5'2 and I swear they make pants with models in mind that are like 5'11". I don't like having to get pants hemmed! Yeah I feel the peities section doesn't usually have clothes I would wear lol, I'm only 25 so I'm with Yaga on the Gramma thing.

    Raven , Sparkles, Desert, Leese, Beth &, Ollie: THANK YOU!!!

    SKP -- Yes, I was thinking of having one but I'm comfortable as is so I'm going to hold off :)

    Peek -- You're exactly right, I just looked at the pic of me in the other dress with straps & my boobs definitely look bigger.

    Lunar -- I'm really not sure! We were looking back at the pictures & I was like OH! I really like that one! It looks nice on me. But we couldn't remember what I didn't like it about it when we were there or why it was a contender for my favorite. Weird.

    Jorja -- That's what everyone says! People are usually SOOO shocked to find out what size my chest is LOL Apparently I'm very deceiving!

    I have to admit, my first thought was (and feel free to tell me this makes me a creeper LOL) "Wow! She has a great rack!" Not meaning huge, or anything, but that it looks perfectly proportionate and you've got gorgeous curves. I love my curves, too! I'm glad women, today, are becoming more comfortable and proud of them. 

    And that 4th dress is amazing on you. A-MAZE-ING.
