    I think 2 is the best, but I’m not sure this is the best silhouette for you. I think you can find something that gives you more of a waist.

    I voted for the first dress. I think the second one has too much going on, and it may distract people from being able to focus on your overall look. I like the last one, too, but I definitely prefer the first gown.

    I don’t know if you’re set on one of the three dresses, but I would keep looking if I were you.  I am not convinced that the natural waist ballgown is the best look on you.  Have you tried on different silhouettes?  I think you can rock a fit and flare or dropped waist better.  Take this with a grain of salt because I am just one random internet board poster, but IMO, these natural waist dresses cut you off in a weird spot.  And no, I am not commenting that you’re not a bridal size 6 or 8.  Neither am I!  And I found that after trying on my dream dress (Martina Liana 260) that the natural waist wasn’t for me either.

    Have you looked at this thread for inspiration?  http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/calling-size-8-10-12-and-14-brides

    I agree with PP that you should consider a fit and flare. I’m a size 12 and thought there was only one option for me and that was A-line. I ended up hating the way I looked in them and bought a fit and flare which I’ll alter to look more mermaid! Fitted does look better on curvy girls and not skinny minnies.

    But if you have your heart set on one of these 3 then I choose the first sans cap sleeves.

    i love the third one the best, i also LOVE the cap sleeves on the first one, BUT don’t like the twisted look on the bodice, if you get cap sleeves added to the third one it would be perfect 🙂

    Definitely the first one – with the cap sleeves positioned correctly! I love that dress 🙂

    I think you have great taste in gowns! I love #1 and #2 but ultimately voted for #2. I just think the silhouette of #2 is really fresh and different, really romantic and not something you see everyday and it really flatters your shape. I like #1 as well, but I think the natural waist on it is making your lower half look bigger than it is. I tried on a similar style and the way it poufs out from being cinched in just widens the area. #3 is a more traditional shape. Where are you getting married? Maybe the venue will influence final decision?

    I voted for the first one because I love the cap sleeves and the whole design of the dress looks lovely on you. But it was a close competition with the third one, which you are also totally rocking!

    I’m just going to sit here swooning over dress 1, as I always do when I see it. One of my top 5 favorite dresses I’ve seen for sure. AND I think it looks especially lovely on you- just imagine when its fitted!

    I love with the 2nd or 3rd dress on you, I think they are super flattering! I’m not loving dress 1 on you, I know you said it’s a too tight sample but I have seen this dress on others, and I honestly don’t think the design of the top can be flattering on any one who has a chest! The only girls I have seen it work on is when they are flat as a pancake on top, because the twist gives them shape. Since you have a nice chest already (which the second and third dress show!), I just don’t think it will sit on you right, even in the proper size.

    I love the second one! Its so different and pretty! I’m not sure the veil your wearing w/ it goes well though.  I like dress #1 too, but I don’t like the cap sleeves.
