So, for the first time today, we went looking for a dress. While I am not officially sold on one yet, I did put two on that I liked a lot. Surprisingly, they were trumpet style…I had seen myself in something more funky and cutesy instead of elegant/bombshell-ish. To appease my aunt, I also put on a ball gown. I’m not really a ball gown person, but I’m not opposed to the way it looks either. I need objective opinions, though, because my mom and aunt were too caught up in just seeing me in a wedding dress. What do y’all think? Please pay no mind to my goofy faces or messy hair.

I actually love the ball gown on you the best. But second choice would be the first Oleg Cassini CWG377

Definitely the second dress. You look so beautiful in it!

I love that 2nd dress on you! Gorgeous!

I think you should stick with a fit & flare/trumpet over the ballgowns, but can’t pick between the first two. The silhouette is definitely great on you but there’s details about both that don’t thrill me. Still, gorgeous!!!!

I like 1 & 3… I like 2, but I dislike where a part of 2 hits you. The little strappy part around your hips isn’t very flattering, IMO. I do like the ballgown on you actually.

I love the second one, it shows off your shape so well!

Oh goodness! Thanks for everyone’s input, but it looks like (collectively) everyone is just as indecisive as me! At first, I really loved the second dress the best. Then, when I put the first dress back on, I noticed all the detailing and I also saw my mom tear up 🙂
When I got home, I looked at the ballgown picture again, I started to love that one, too! WHY DOES THIS HAVE TO BE SO HARD?! hehe.
@AmeliaBedelia: that is EXACTLY the one thing I don’t like about that dress! It makes me look super hip-y…an area that I do NOT need to accentuate more! It also is a little busty, which I’m not too sure if I like or not…

I love your shape in dress 2 but hate that band near your hips. I vote for dress 3!

I’m a photographer and shot a wedding last summer where the bride wore the Oleg Cassini (lace floral fit) dress and it was absolutely stunning. That would be my pick! It looks gorgeous on you.

I’m partial to number 2 because that is my dress also. 🙂 Also I don’t think that it makes you look too hippy. I’m a size 16, same shape as you. The detailing up the middle of the dress and the shirring on the sides actually creates a perfect hourglass shape in this dress. Especially from the front.
I like the first one on you too though. The oleg cassini gowns are gorgeous.

I love the details on number 1, they’re just so fun and beautiful. I also think it looks amazing on you.

I like the second, and the shape of the first two in general. But I would say keep looking, and if you don’t like anything else, you should come back to the first or the second.

I like number two on you but think that you should keep looking. I think that style suits your figure wonderfully but like another Bee said there’s something about the details that doesn’t sit right.
I do have a question about how you put the pics together, lol but will PM you!
