    I like Option 1 much better than option 2. It just gives the dress a little bit more shape and I think it falls more nicely. Both are gorgeous and look fantastic on you though!

    Hello!! Vava voom! I love the pleating, it draws my eye in to the dart at the knee and really accentuates your curves.

    I feel like the pleats make the botrom fuller which balances your hips better than the bottom option

    I never thought I would vote in favour of pleats for anything, let alone a wedding dress, but it’s gorgeous!  I don’t think it’s too heavy for the beach.

    I love option 1! And I think that’s a perfect beach wedding dress

    I think dress #1 looks killer on you!!! And try not to be too hard on yourself. Take it from an inverted triangle, curvy is gorgeous! Oh the things I would do to have beautiful round hips 🙂

    kelleyk8087 :  ooooh I like that one too but I’d have to see it on you.  I do like the elegant simplicity of the first one for the beach, the Hayley Paige skirt is more “fussy”.  But I have to see it on you!  Hopefully you find it 🙂

    I tried on the Hayley Paige and very similar to your shape and build. It was just too much dress *for me* I loved the way the lines curved my body on the bodice but it was uitimately the skirt that made me feel heavier. But def try it on for yourself!

    The pleats on the HP looks weird and not like the model. They probably steam pressed and arranged them a certain way before taking the pictures. I still like the first one you tried on. The pleats do make the dress look good!
