I love the bodice of the second dress you posted, just not the puffiness of the bottom.
I am also curvier and only 5'2".
Thank goodness concern of price is off the table. The certificate is for any dress in the boutique. The most expensive dress they have is $1875.
Alterations are not included, but that's just fine. I will have the dress
I did find a few more styles I liked yesterday while looking online. But I still go back to the dress with the sash.
