    @mlleviolette:  I love JP Aspen! I tried it on, too. I didn’t want sleeves, but it’s a beautiful gown.

    Even in the correct size that dress has way too much boob for a wedding dress, IMHO.

    Are you 100% set on the sheath type dress?

    It’s a lovely dress, if you’re worried about cleavage I’m sure I saw another bee with that dress who added more lace to make it more modest

    It might help to see pics of the other options. I’m not sure this dress would be the most flattering pick for you

    ETA: I just noticed the link. I loved the Sue Wong but as that’s no longer in the running, I voted for the Laila. It’s gorgeous 🙂

    I think all of the dresses from the previous post were gorgeous on you – and made you look beautifully proportional. This JP dress makes you look a bit top-heavy. I vote for the Leila!

    The Laila is most flattering on you. The JP does not look flattering in the bust area and I don’t think it will even in the right size. The Laila is gorgeous and still has that lace back you’re looking for.

    @mlleviolette:  Aspen is all wrong. Look at your side picture. This dress makes women look like they have big panty lines. Bothers the heck out of me every time I see it. I know JP dresses are the crowd fav but they don’t always translate well on the female body. Great in theory but the reality is most look better on the hanger. I vote for Laila.

    @mlleviolette:  I like the third gown with the plunging neckline.  It is elegant and sexy all at once.

    I loved the Laila when I was looking, but couldn’t find it to try on. My vote is for the Laila. Also I love lace illusion backs, my dress has one too 🙂

    I usually LOVE Jenny Packham gowns, and drool all over the keyboard -but I really think the Pronovias Diemos looks AMAZING on you.  I love the bodice cut, front and back, and I love the wispy bottom.  I wonder what you don’t love about the front.  I think the front has much more interest than the other gowns. I know it has much more sparkle.  I am wondering if you take off the slender ribbon, and add a wider sash with a piece something like the one on the JP gown, would it work for you?
