please help me pick my dress. i bought the first dress because it was only $399 and i did love it on me but i’ve always envisioned myself in a ballgown. i’m getting married at saddle rock ranch – chateau le dome and figured the ballgown might be a bit much for an outdoor wedding but now i just feel so confused. the store is allowing me to exchange my dress but i need to do it asap because my wedding is august 30th. what do you guys think?

Dress 1 and dress 2 are gorgeous on you..but since you are doing an outdoor wedding, dress 1 would better.

The first dress looks the best on you. The ballgowns do nothing for your great curves!

Depends on your style. I love the first one on you, it makes your figure look amazing and feels really cool and almost artsy. If you really want a ball gown I prefer #2 on you.

I like the lace on two but don’t like the see through bodice, even with lining, but I like all of #3! I voted for #3 followed by #2 🙂

Much prefer the first on you, you are absolutely rocking it.
The reason why people love ballgowns (OK there are many reasons, but this is one of them) is that they highlight a slim waist. But these ballgowns aren’t doing that for you. I think it’s because you’re fairly short-waisted, so the waistline isn’t hitting you in the perfect place for you.
I think if you want a ballgown, you should be looking for something even more drop-waisted. If you are petite, then an asymmetrical drop waist may be better, as it would make you look less short. Either way, look for one that is still fitted to some extent at the higher hip.
I would be looking for styles like these (some of these are more fit and flare):

I voted for dress #2. All the dresses look great on you though!
