    You’re beautiful.

    Why didn’t the entourage like the third one? I liked it, but I also liked the second.

    I actually think you look great in all three of them and that you can choose whichever silhouette you like best.

    For what it’s worth, I think that you really have already eliminated Belle in any form, due to the weight of the gown. After all, it’s not only important that you feel beautiful in your gown, but also that you feel comfortable. That leaves the A-line and mermaid styles under consideration.

    I would choose whichever dress makes you feel as if you look your best — the one that feels most special and most wonderful to you.

    If you find that you really LOVE the details  of the A-line dress the most, but you truly love the silhouette and feel  of the mermaid style the best, then I think you can safely say that you need to keep looking, because neither of those gowns is the one.

    I hope that this makes sense. πŸ™‚

    I think the first one is the most figure flattering. It defines your waistline better than the others and I like the sleeves, which help soften the shoulder line.

    The other two are okay, but the one with the asymmetrical waist makes your figure look more straight up and down than hourglass. That’s probably my least favourite of the three. The last one is hard to form an opinion of because there is no picture from the front. However, I think the side pic makes your boobs look squashed.

    The applique on the bodice of the A-line is exquisite, and I LOVE IT! I wish I could find stuff like that on natural-waist ballgowns. Unfortunately, that’s the only thing I like about #2, so I vote for #1!! Ballgowns all the way!

    I love the A-line dress! But also think you are rocking the mermaid! Ultimately you have to pick the dress you feel best in (and I think from your description the mermaid is the one you liked best).

    Shame on your friends for not taking more photos of the third dress. Definitely go back and try it on again! (But bring different friends to take pictures)

    #3 is DEFINITELY my favorite, even seeing the not so great photos!! #2 is a close second, it’s really unique..and I thought I was going to choose it until I saw #3 lol. And #1 I didn’t like at all. It’s just too much on you.

    Also, I love your hair color!! πŸ™‚
