Mr CL and I are getting married at a hotel, so we’ll be having breakfast with a lot of our friends and family the following day. I’d love to have another white dress to wear for the breakfast, so found these (and similar) ones online and was wondering what people think?
To give you an idea, I’m heavier on the bottom than the top – about a UK 14 (US 12) on the bottom, UK 10 (US 8) on the top – and I’m blonde and fairly pale, if that makes any difference to your decision

I love them all! That said…I’m about a 6 on bottom and a 2/4 on top, and I know the beautiful crocheted cotton dress just would not work on my figure. So, I voted for that one, but I also vote that you try it on first! I know that the second or third dress would work better with my figure (which is similar to yours) so those might be safer bets.
All of them are adorable, though 🙂 I love this idea!!

I love that first dress!!

I love the 3rd one, where is it from? I have similar proportions to you and I think that style might be the most flattering!

@clumsylawyer: I really like the butterfly print dress. It’s really cute, seems like it would work well with the body type you decribed, and it’s something that doesn’t scream “wedding” so you could definitely wear it again!

The first one is so cute!

I love the first one- it feels a little weddingy but not too formal to wear again in the future (but more bridal/formal than the other all white one). Not a super fan of all the patterns.
Haha, I saw my cousin’s wife the morning after her wedding and she was wearing something like this:
I’m sure she changed by brunch time but I was too busy looking at the super cute guy I met at the wedding (now my SO of 4.5 years!).

@clumsylawyer: Seeing your figure stats, I would say #1 or #2 would look best. My friend has a similar figure to yours (38G + size 8 bottom), and v-necks with flared skirts look phenomenal on her (since it adds balance to her top-heavy frame).
The butterfly dress is really cute, but when you are bustier, high necks can create the dreaded “uniboob” or “megaboob,” if you aren’t careful. It’s the difference between:
This (mondoboob): and this (nicely separated and flattering):
If you can try them on before purchasing, I would definitely recommend doing so.

Thanks everyone for your replies!
@nicolervt89: The third dress is from here
@li612: I know what you mean, but I wear dresses all the time anyway, so it’d just be normal to me
@collieblueeyes: The butterfly dress is from here
@MlleFabuleux: I think you might have misread – I’m big on the bottom and small on the top I’ve definitely not got to worry about shelf boob!

@kgirl91: HA HA HA!! Yeah, that’s the way! Now I’m obsessed with the idea of getting a matching sweatpant/hoodie set + big sunnies for the honeymoon.

@clumsylawyer: Ahahaha I definitely read that the wrong way. In that case…you have no uniboob worries, and #2 or #4 would be perfect.
I’m a pear, as well, and shift dresses (#1) look a hot mess on me since they don’t fit loose enough to look chic. Baggy sleeveless dresses like #3 also look a hot mess on me since they tend to add bulk to my bottom half without giving me enough of a waist.
