    That fit-and-flair is *so* flattering on you and the tulle at the botom is so romantic. <3

    Gorgeous!! I love the form fitting ones better than the ballgown personally. The fit and flare shows off your shape better!

    I like #2 the best, but I like #1 with the straight top (not sweetheart).  However I am not convinced any of those is THE dress for you.  They all look very nice, but I think you could find something that is just right.  I think a ballgown in a different fabric might be good!

    @vintagebride143:  They are all very beautiful, but I voted for the Maggie Sottero… it is the most flattering on your figure, and elongates your legs the most.

     

    The fit and flare has too much emphasis on the bust, which appears to be your largest proportion, so it makes you look a little top heavy.

     

    The ball gown is flattering to your shape, but with the beading stopping so low on your hips, it makes your legs look shorter.

    @vintagebride143:  I think the first one (the Maggie) does the most for your figure, you look great in it. The second one looks okay, it’s hard to judge because it’s big on you (just not your size), but I’m sure would look nice in your size. The last one (Cassablanca ballgown) is not flattering. I think the line across the hips where the embroidery ends looks awkward and makes you look wider than you are.

    I love the top one (the Maggie) simply because it looks so much like my wedding gown, which I bought this weekend! And, it looks beautiful on you!

    Mine is a Mori Lee (Style 4704 – pictured below) and flatters my (slightly curvier) figure perfectly!

    #2 for sure.  It looks stunning on you.  The tulle on the skirt is so pretty and the beading on the bodice is gorgeous as well.  It gives you great shape and overall is the most eye pleasing as far as the fabrics and details.

    you look gorgeous in all but I really like #2. I think if you try any other ballgowns, try to find one that is more of a natural waistline. Great start!
