Okay after my first dress this morning was a bust, I thought I’d acquiese to some requests of seeing other gowns on me to compare. See my first post here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/i-found-the-dress-14
Some of these gowns are out of my price range (like, $500 tops) but just so we can all see how other styles look on me (not that good, in my opinion 🙁 ) Sorry I don’t know all the model numbers!!
Alfred Angelo gowns:
This one is the original Cinderella gown
One with color
This one is model #2166
Next I have some Davids Bridal gowns:
This is a full-blown ball gown. I do not like how it makes my hips flare out so much.
This next one just feels very blah.
This last one feels alright but not in love
annnd just for reference, the original dress:

I still love the original dress! It’s flattering to your figure and elegant.

your original “cinderella dress” looks the best on you BY FAR! I would maybe try on a blingy belt at the waist with it too!

The silhouette of the Cinderella dress is the most flattering for your figure. It pulls your waist in and then the poof coming from the natural waist is very flattering. I also think #2166 is a flattering silhouette, but I feel the dress itself looks a bit dated.

I really love #1! I actually like that it feels much softer than all the other ones and you look great in it

@Omgbunnies: I’m a little confused… so you didn’t buy the original dress?
I think the first (Cinderella) dress is the most flattering on you. The others ones are a bit ‘meh’ in my opinion… nothing that makes me go ‘wow’.

I have to say Cinderella was my 2nd favorite! I love it, too, but it’s about $1099 and my budget is $500. But maybe there are cheaper Cinderella-esque ones out there?

First dress looks great on you but I also like the last one as well.

@canarydiamond: No, I was *this close* but wanted to sleep on it before committing.

@Omgbunnies: Oh ok. Hmmm I don’t want to upset you, but the pick-ups if that’s what they’re called aren’t exactly flattering IMO. Maybe you could find a dress similar to the Cinderella? The Cinderella is sooo nice.

I think the Cinderella dress is gorgeous in general, and even more so on you! Have you looked at pre-owned dresses? It’s been out a couple of years now – I’d think you’d be able to find one!
To be honest, the only thing I like about the last one is the bodice. The skirt is doing wayyy too much for me.

I was torn between Cinderella and 2166…I voted 2166 because I love the bodice!

@sarahbabs: I was considering going to a couple consignment stores. Maybe they would!
