    Definitely the one strap one! It looks gorgeous.

    I hate one strap dresses, they remind me of togas.

    I think the shape of the strapless dress looks less flattering although it might just be the photo. It sort of looks like a bag dress!

    I voted for the one strap because I don’t care for the cut of that strapless dress but the other one you posted may be a good option. As far as your BM, just tell her that you found a dress you really love that fits the look you are going for (your “bridal vision” if you will…yuck I hate that term) and you hope she is open to it since it is just one day! If you say it nicely and with a smile/positive attitude, I think she would have a hard time saying, “ew no I refuse to wear a free dress I don’t like for one day.”

    I like the one strap one best; however, it’s not a style that is flattering on everyone. The strapless is safer.

    I have 3 maids, one is VERY large chested and loves to have the girls hanging out and the other two , one is stick thin and other is hourglass. This is the dress they all love, i love the strap in the middle – hoping it will hide the #1’s cleavage ;P

    I’m not usually a one-strap dress girl, but out of the two I prefer that one.

    @springwed8:  i recognise these dresses!! what i found with Dessy, is that the one shouldered dress looked great in photos…but not on my BMs. but it looks pretty in that photo. i really dont like the second one – its shapeless and not flattering

    the ones you said you didnt have a samples of, look awesome in real life.Theyre actually my favourites in the whole collection. i was in LOVE with number 4…but my bridesmaids preferred number 3. strangely, the photo doesnt do it justice. it looks even better in real life
