. I need help picking a dress. The bridal salon wouldn’t let me take pictures until I purchased a dress, so the pictures are of the models. If it helps, I’m 5’3, 118lbs but curvy and I’ll wear at least 3-4 inch. Heels.
If anyone has pictures of a real bride, please share.
Starting from the bottom/last picture:
#1-winnie couture esme
#3-maggie sottero sahara
#5-essence of Australia-d1459

@Soontobemrs2012: I like the Casablanca the best, because to me it has the nicest shape of all of them. But I’m not a fan of trumpet/mermaid dresses, and you are by the looks of your choices, so take my opinion with a grain of salt I guess!

@Soontobemrs2012: I like the maggie and the casablanca! I think it depends on what “style” you want for your wedding. The maggie is soft and romantic, the casablanca is more dramatic and flashy (in a good way).

OP, I’m same height as you; I’m curvy as well — more so around the bottom; 130 lbs. I ended up with a natural waistline A-line. Sheath dresses looked good as well.
Drop waist was awkward on me. (Maggie and Allure dresses as posted are drop waist) Modified trumpets were okay, but movements in such a dress are restrictive. So, if your first dance is lively/fast like a jive, the dress won’t be comfortable to dance in.
Have you tried all kinds of silhouettes, OP?

@Soontobemrs2012: all dresses are lovely but I think you mixed up 2 of the dresses! Dress #2 is the casablanca 2104 and #4 is the Allure.
I think the 3rd dress is gorgeous!!
EDIT: I read your post wrong, sorry! I see you listed from the bottom up!

Also, could you post some more info about the Allure dress? Like item #? I’m also looking for dresses and that one is absolutely gorgeous!
