    @jbbs1222:  Well, I think that #2 is about perfect.


    #3 is probably fine when, as you say, the middle part is straightened out. That’s a dress you could glamorize a lot with accesories.

    #4 is pretty and elegant. I think it’s just the dark ribbon belt that is throwing me. something lighter in color around your waist would be nice.

    LOVE the last one on you! :] I’m a size 24+ bride and tried on the Vera Wang ball gown in your first picture. Even though I loved the soft tulle layers, I knew it wasn’t for my body type. I went with an empire waist gown that complimented the smallest part of my body, and still had the flowing tulle like I wanted. Here’s pics of both just in case you wanted to see (the last one is my dress, only 5 sizes too small! MY dress comes in next week!) but really, That last one is beautiful on you!

    I think that dress by Eden is going to be a lot more flattering for you than the one by DB that you are trying to compare it to, because there is a dip at the waist in the DB one that there isn’t in the first one.

    My favorite is the Cinderella dress with the extra tulle at the hips. It creates a nice balance, and I love the flowiness of tulle.

    The last dress the lace dress is nice, but I agree with another poster about the color of the sash being too dark, but it could be the lighting.

    Option 2 DB Cinderella gives you shape and I think thats this extra tiul around your hips suits to this dress. I woted for option 2 but option 3 DB Lace is also beautiful and elegant!!

    @jbbs1222:  I think the DB Cinderella is the most figure flattering.

    The last dress is more flattering on you than any of the others. The shape and design is perfect, while the others just aren’t even close.

    The Cinderella dress is by far the most flattering.

    I voted for #1 because I’m assuming, based on the photo, that it’s actually a closer shape to the Cinderella dress with the layers pulled back than it is to the DB dress you showed as an example. Here is a pic of it being worn by another Bee:



    If it’s a choice between this and the Cinderalla, they are pretty similar, but this one seems to have prettier details and therefore edges it for me. That said, it would be really important that the sash is at the right point, the waistline is at the right point and the dress flares out at the right point. (Speaking as a size 24 bride I know how these things matter! 

    I also like the a-line (third dress) but not so much with the sash. Since you seem set on wearing the sash, it’s a no for me. Because the neckline is straight and the sash is straight, it creates two horizontal lines and makes you look blocky. If you could add straps to it and change the neckline to a v-neck or sweetheart I think this dress could work (the straps would extend the height of the dress above the sash and make it look more balanced, the v and sweetheart would add a flattering vertical-ish line which is what you want).

    ETA: If you really like the sparke of the last one but the shape of the first, maybe you could get a dressmaker to add some sparkle to the first dress (maybe just to the bodice?) Since I think Eden dresses are quite inexpensive anyway. maybe there’d be some room in the budget for that?
