    I have gone back FOUR times to try on each of these dresses and I'm STILL not 100% sure which one to order. The bridal shop called me today telling me I MUST make a decision ASAP as it will take 8 months to come in.

    Dress #1 is Maggie Sottero Melissa Brooch
    The sample fit perfectly so its really easy for me to love this one but its pretty simple

    Dress #2 is Maggie Sottero Jovi
    Now I do realize I'm no skinny-minny and this dress is kinda mermaid shaped but I really like it, especially the peekaboo tulle underneath. The sample though is 2 sizes too small so its hard to picture if the dress will flatter me in my size? Do you think I can pull it off?

    Help ladies!! I'm leaning towards #2 Jovi but I'm hesitant because I don't know exactly how the dress will look in my size!

      Definitely Dress #2! Interestingly, I went with the melissa brooch, but trying to save money for a 3rd ttd dress, I got a knock off of it online at inweddingdress.com. Well, it came out pretty awful, so I'm glad you're going with a real one! I say that the Melissa somewhat makes the bottom look too short on you? I even had that issue, because the bodice was so long on me. I know they custom make it for your body though. I am 5'9, though, so who knows. Theres always ways around that of course, and maybe it's the angle the pic was taken!

      On the flipside, I LOVE dress two, because not only do i feel it gives you more of a nice curve, but mermaid shapes are really flattering to give that womanly hourglass feel! :)

      Either way, good luck deciding! You'll look stunning in whatever you pick!

        I absolutely love #2 on you! The neckline and bodice of the dress suit you well. :)

            I'm not sure! I think I like #1 the best - it really suits you and makes you look fantastic!

            Good luck! Whatever you choose, it is going to look amazing!

                  I must have looked at each dress 5 different times. I honestly think both of them look great on you, I love the back of dress #1 but I love the detail on dress #2. Sorry it's a toss up for me, but the cut and style of the dresses you choose is very flattering. Good luck :-)

                    I can see why you are having such a hard decision here. They both have their positives. I love the front of the second dress and the back of the first. I think you will be happy with either dress.

                      Oooooh! This is a tough one....

                      Well, I gotta say that I truly feel that #2 is the right dress for you! And I know where you are coming from when you tried on the sample dress and it was a little too small! When I tried on my Sottero & Midgley, I was like, 'You want me to wear a what? A 6? I'm a lot of things, but a size 6 I AM NOT!' and they said, just to give it a shot, and sure enough, even though I am a street size 10/12, I was able to get enough of an idea of what it looked like to fall head over heels. YOU LOOKED BEAUTIFUL in both of them, but I just loved the cut of the second dress, and although dress #1 is lovely, I think 2 was just more special looking on you!

                      GOOD LUCK making your decision and CONGRATULATIONS on finding 2 gorgeous gowns (you can't go wrong either way!)
