    I actually really love #4 on you! My other favorites are #2 and #6. Those 3 I think are really flattering but they’re all really different feels so it depends on what your wedding’s theme is. You look beautiful!

    I like the 2nd, 3rd & 6th…But all of these styles are completely different. Figure out what you gravitate toward. For example, as I started trying on dresses I fell in love with a sweetheart neckline. So all the dresses I tried on after that had a sweetheart neckline. Good luck!! ::Smile::

    @SugerPlum:  We have very similar shapes. Smile  I love dress #6 on you.  It’s stunning! I, too, wore a strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and ruching at the bust, but I will note that you may have to think outside the box when selecting your foundational garments.  Unfortuntely, I found that a traditional, slimming, long-line, corset-style bra pushed me up way too high and resulted in too much cleavage. Instead, I ended up having to go with a regular strapless bra that lessened this problem.  Dress #7 is also quite pretty.  That neckline will tend to have a more minimizing effect, if that’s the direction in which you ultimately decide to go. One final note:  I don’t know if the dress you select will have the same effect as mine did, but, if I wasn’t careful when seated, the top sides of my gown tended to press into my upper chest area, creating a “double” chest affect in some of my pics.  Make sure that someone (your photographer or his or her assistant or someone else attending to you that day) pays attention to this, since I am going to have to have some of my photos edited because of this. FYI, below is the designer’s photo (on a model much smaller than I am) of the front of my gown:

    @SugerPlum: #2 is my dress! So I’m biased. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have to say #6 and #7 look awesome on you!

    I love three, six and seven on you the best- and it is just too hard to narrow it down from there….  What type of wedding are you having?  Venue and theme might help with picking the dress!

    I love numbers 6 and 3 on you!  Number 2 is also a close contender.

    I love the clean lines of #2. It’s gorgeous on you. I also really like #6 and #7–#6 highlights your waist and #7 has that clean look that I think really works well on you.

    #1 and #5 are my least favorite of the bunch… I think they just have too much going on. 

    Good luck with the search!
