I exchanged the original Lilly Bridal Shower dress for the Lilly Fiesta dress and I am so glad I did! The fit is much more flattering, and I love the fun print!
When I returned to the store today, the 12 of the original dress was already sold, so I took it as a sign to try on a few new ones. Lilly's sizing is really funny! In some dresses, I'm a perfect 8, but in others, I take a 10. I also tried on this dress and loved it! I think I may be back for it later this summer.
I'm learning that certain styles are just much more flattering on my body type (hour glass), and both of these dresses fit the bill! When I was younger, I used to wish I had a straighter figure. I hated my hour glass frame, but now I've learned (well its still a work in progress) how to dress so that its more flattering to my body. Also, as I've been getting into better shape, I've really been feeling better about my figure. Too bad I wasted so much time wishing for something else! Do you ever wish you could have visited yourself at 16 with what you know now and enlightened yourself a bit? I sure do!
Thanks to everyone who commented with advice about this shopping dilemma!
