Oh my god your dress is STUNNING on you!! I literally, out loud, said WOW when I opened this up. After seeing your second fav and the fitted dress pics, I definitely agree with PP that the dress you chose is absolutely perfect. You are going to be such a beautiful bride!

LOL I got a fit/flare dress and I regretted that I didn’t get a ball gown. Just goes to show that we always want what we don’t have 😛

Hi girl,

I just posted the same question but on the flip side. I got a tight mermaid dress and majorly gregret it because I just don’t feel very bridal and I hate that you can see my stomach etc in clear view! I too have a fuller bust and I’ve always balanced it out on bottom with a fuller skirt so god knows why I went for fit so tight for my wedding! 

I think you look amazing in both but you look more like a bride in the dress you’ve picked. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I can guess only a handful of people could actually pull that off! I think you’ve made the right choice for sure! Stunning!

I think you look better and sexier in your first dress. You have a great shape and I see it more in that one. Simply stunning!

I love your dress! I like the thicker straps over the real thin straps on the second one. And your waist!!! It’s sooo tiny!! I’m not really loving the fitted dress tbh. Your current dress is just so well proportioned for your body! I find it to be more flattering all around. IMO you picked the perfect dress bee! I wouldn’t even remove any of the tulle. You look absolutely stunning in it!!!

I actually think that the dress you bought shows off your shape more – it shows slightly less of it, but it looks more balanced and sexier. You look stunning – I wouldn’t turn back!

Although I think your current dress is beautiful and that you shouldn’t change it. I do like the 2nd favorite better. For your current dress my eyes are drawn to the bust area and the cups stand out, maybe due to the white underneath and I’m not a huge fan of the lace dropping down. The 2nd favorite doesn’t stand out so much in the bust area and the lace runs down the sides, which I prefer. And I like the straps better too. Just my preferences though. But for your question, YES it is flattering and you shouldn’t worry about your body at all. Just addressing the things I noticed.

mpd80 :  

You have , pretty much, what appears to be a  perfect figure  and beautiful skin.    You also seem to have  have a good body image and  high self esteem . You look great, really great in the dress you have chosen. 

In My Humble Opinion, you have absolutely no need to show any more of your body/shape   than either of the first two dresses already show . They  both have very low  necklines and are  more or less backless . You could , of course,  get another dress that has these features plus also showcases your bum and thighs if you really want.

I agree with pps about the flattering balancing  effect of the A-line dresses .

OP I think the dress you chose is everything! It balances out your top half, shows off your waist, looks very bridal, and with a hint of sexy with the bust. Mermaids are overdone IMO, and they look super uncomfortable (and are often uncomfortable). The dress you picked is much more flattering than the fitted gown in your third photo.

mpd80 :  my shape is similar to yours as in I have broader shoulders. a bigger bust to hips ratio. (An inverted triangle) The dress you picked is way more flattering than the fitted one. It balances you out.

Also the dress you picked is plenty sexy and shows your figure off. It’s low cut at the front and the back and it is  very see through with the lace in the top. I don’t think you could possibly show any more without it looking too much or having every guest trying to avoid accidentally looking  at your cleavage on your wedding day.

You look great in the dress. You picked the right silhouette  for your figure.

I think the dress you bought is perfect, really shows off your tiny waist and just the right amount of sexy (in the bust) balanced with classy in the bottom, perfect! I’m not a big fan of the fitted dress, I think it looks a bit too sexy and also a bit like a night gown (you know the ones I’m talking about, lace and satin). 

I also agree with PP that the first dress with the bigger bottom balance out your top half and just looks great 🙂
