DISCLAIMER: I know that my boobs look huge in all of these dresses. I wear an “H” cup, and the rest of my body is a size 12/14. It’s just the reality of my body…I’ve accepted it, and unflattering comments about them are just going to make this hellish wedding dress shopping thing worse. (In case you can’t tell, I haven’t enjoyed this process.)
With that said…
I’m torn between 4 dresses. I’ve been debating which dress to have Jasmine’s make for me… I’m concerned that the dresses with lots of beading won’t come out like the original.
The retail prices of most of these dresses are more than I want to spend.
Answer the poll and let me know which dress you think looks best on me. I’m having an after 6 wedding at a country club at the beginning of summer.
For reference, these are the dress stats:
#1: Mori Lee 1953- retails for $1469
#2- Allure 9017- retails for $1899
#3- Allure 2601 (with optional sash, $200)- retails for $999
#4 Allure 9003- retails for $2199
If you have another dress you think I may like/ may look good on me; I’m open to suggestions. Thanks!

@HisQueen2Be: The best two are the ball gowns :), I voted for #3 simply because I prefer tulle, however, #1 fits your body the best.

@HisQueen2Be: I have seen that first dress on others on the bee and I didn’t love it. However, I think that it looks best on your body shape and the colour looks great with your skin tone! It got my vote 🙂

@O.My.Heart: Thank you for your input! You don’t think the pleats look odd? That’s my concern with that one.

I agree that 1 fits you best, I also prefer that your entire breast isn’t covered with beading. I vote for either of the ballgowns really, as they balance out your figure. A natural waist ballgown may balance it out even more. I’m a DDD and I ended up with a natural waist ballgown that really emphasizes the best parts of my figure.

I love the two ballgowns on you! I also voted for the third one with the tulle because, well, I am biased. I had a tulle ballgown and I loved it haha. But they both look so beautiful on you!
Also, the third one has the lowest price tag among the others, could you swing that one? Then you wouldn’t have the concern about the beading….

The ballgown dresses flatter your body!! I especially like #3! So pretty

@HisQueen2Be: You mean the pleats on the first dress, in the fabric?

@HisQueen2Be: If you are concerned about the pleats looking odd you can look for a circular cut skirt (that’s what mine is), or maybe ask Jasmine’s to cut it that way for you.

@HisQueen2Be: i think what is not making the other 2 style dresses look good on you is because the tops arent held in to your body. i think number 2 could look good on you if you had someone holdin your boobies in. lol with the dress flared out like that it makes you look way too top heavy.
with that being said i voted for number 1 because of pictures shown i ike the way it fits and everything flows on you.

I didn’t vote because I think the poll options and the order of the dresses in the post might be different. But my favorite is the tulle beaded ballgown. I’m not feeling the mermaid for some reason, and the A-line lacy dress is just ok. I like both of the ball gowns, but I’m a fan of tulle and I think that one looks great on you!
ETA: I missed the descriptions in the poll the first time around. I just voted 🙂

I like #2 & #4 the best. 2 Is my favourite. I personally feel that the fuller skirt combined with your ‘ample assets’ make you look heavier. I really like the way #2 hugs your body – and I’m guessing it’s not tied properly at the top so when it fits it will be spectacular. BUT Listen to your gut, not to us. Which one does your gut tell you is right – that’s the dress you should buy!

I think number 1 fits your body the best but I like the skirt on number 3. If it makes you feel better, I didn’t have the big boob issue to deal with dress shopping and I still did not like the process. I have the huge hips and thigh thing with my body.

Love, love, love #1. Gorgeous!! It looks like the expensive Pnina Tornai gown from SYTTD
