So far i have gone to three bridal stores. Davids and two other boutiques.
#1 Davids dress. First dress I really liked but I couldnt say yes without seeing more. Still really love this dress.
#3 A dress i never thought i would like because it meets neither of my “must haves” no lace and no straps.
#4 Same dress as 2 but different belt and straps.
The next 2 dresses are Mori Lee from a boutique that didnt provide me with a bra or clamp the dress very well. They are my favorite but dont look that great because they are too big, not clamped well and im wearing a regular every day bra.
Opinions and thoughts so far?

Have you considered trying on more strapless sweetheart necklines? I like the top of 3rd one and the body of the first one but think you could totally rock a trumpet/mermaid/modified A-line with a sweetheart neckline, I feel like the straps are making your shoulders a bit more broad than they really are.

I really like dress # 3.. possibly because I love you without straps!

#3 is th most flattering, followed by #1.
But I would REALLY like to see you in the dress on the mannequin in picture #4! With the straps and the natural-waisted ballgown? That would look SO INCREDIBLE on you.

@soontobehisbride: I voted to try a different silhouette. I can’t explain what to try because honestly idk, but I do agree with a pp about trying on more strapless sweetheart necklines. Maybe not mermaid style, but a bit more fit and flare? I think I feel like most of these dresses are missing that umph. But whatever the case is, if there’s a dress you absolutely love and feel you need to have it, then go for it. The most important thing is to listen to your wants. You want to feel comfortable on your big day.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE #3 on you. Definitely the best choice out of all the ones you posted. If you aren’t in love with it, I would suggest trying on more strapless sweethear dress of different styles as the top of that dress is absolutely perfect for you.

@soontobehisbride: I love lace too, but I think #3 looks amazing on you!

I voted wrong…I meant #3, but said two…I read the order wrong.

Although it has no straps or lace, I agree with PPs that the third dress looks the best. You hear many women stories about finding dresses that look better on even though they are completely opposite from what they desired in the beginning.

I got confused about the numbers and voted 4, but I meant to vote 3. I think the ball gown silhouette is best on you!

@soontobehisbride: I really like the lace straps and can see how you like the last two dresses a lot.
Really, the only dress I do NOT like is #5 with the high belt and ugly straps. That same dress earlier in the photo spread is lovely with different straps and a lower or better belt.

I love dress 1 and 2 but I chose dress 1 in the end because it seems to fit you perfectly.
