I think that dress looks really good on you- total hourglass figure!

Since the other dresses are similar styles/cuts- I’m guessing they would look good too.

Which would look best is hard to say without actually seeing them on you.

I think the style looks great!  I like the second one better because there’s less going on at the bottom, which makes the model look clean and statuesque.  The dress you’re wearing creates other lines through your legs, and I think it looks almost stumpy. (That seems more harsh than I’m intending–I can’t think of a good word for stumpy-lite, and maybe it would look great if it was hemmed).  The "thumb" dress is also a little simpler  at the bottom.

I second rosychicklet that seeing them on you is the best way to go.  Did one make you swoon? 

Good luck!

I really like that dress on you! In fact, I like it better on you than the one on the creepy looking model.

You look great in that dress!!!! It’s really flattering on you, I agree with KateMW about the creepy looking model.

Yes, I’m with rosychicklet – you are cutting quite a nice figure in that dress, missy!

They seem really similar.  But theo ne you have on looks nice.  The other is hard to tell without you modeling it.  I’m typically a bigger fan of the less trumpety style, but they both would probably be nice.

Va va voom!  I love that picture!  You can carry off the hourglass look perfectly.  You could also wear some nice sized heels too with that dress..did you have heels on in the pic?

Maybe it was all the time I was in Miss America pageants, but I think a nice heel gives a great evening gown/wedding gown look.

I love that gown.  It does not need a single bead or sequin because its style is its power.  The gown is very old Hollywood.  I love it!

I like that dress you have on.  I also wanted a dress with no beading or sequins or anything.  Did you try on a Sottero and Midgely?  They have one that’s very similar to this style, but the ruching doesn’t go down as far.  I tried on a dress (I forget the designer now) that had ruching down past the hips and my sister said it made me look too hippy. I don’t know how to post a pic here but the style number is SSM5049.
