    @cranraspberry:  I voted for #2 because I think it works best with your figure.  The other three just look like they are hanging off of you; like the dress is wearing you instead of you wearing the dress.

    I like you in the mermaid and last ballgown the best. I’d also like to see you in some slightly dropped waist ballgowns (but still with a big skirt, to accentuate your tiny waist!).

    ETA: This is purely on the silhouette basis. I voted for #4 but think you should modify it to a sweetheart or choose a different neckline altogether. Then again I don’t like straight necklines on just about most people.

    I adore the third one. I think you’re a bit lost in the 4th one. I’m not that keen on 1, I’m not sure, it might be the “v”s of lace. I think 2 would also look stunning if properly fitted.

    You can carry them all off so I guess it’s down to the style you’re after, but if it was me, I would go for 3

    I voted for the third one. I love the way it falls off just under your bust – waist, and sits perfectly around you. 🙂

    @cranraspberry:  Don’t feel bad about not liking the dropped waist.  When I got it on my mom asked when I was due with the baby.  That dress came off before I even made it to the mirror outside of the dressing room!

    I liked the first two best, and number one looks way better with its regular straight neckline and both look better with no sash.

    @cranraspberry: 2 is a gorgeous on you. I had stomach flutters when I saw you in that one. Let us know what you decide on.
