    @llberu:  Here are more pics and a link the the tea length version, there isn’t actually a model pic of the full length version.

    One of my favorite things about my dress is that even at a DDD I don’t need to wear a bra because it is so well constructed.

     

    All floofed out on the floor; the real silhouette of the skirt is much more like the first picture I posted

     

     

    and a close-up shot of the lace

     

     

    I don’t actually have a picture of the flower, but I could go take one as my dress is hanging in my closet. It’s kinda like a magnolia with some sparkly silver beads inside of it. Oh and my dress is ivory btw.

    @llberu:  I know these don’t have sleeves, but I tried on these dresses and found them to be so comfortable. Plus the extra coverage up top with the illusion panels helped me feel less exposed. The A-Line/slim ballgown style looks stunning on you btw.

    Dress 5 is so flattering on you!  It is always worth trying that style on in different materials since you said you don’t feel completely comfortable in that dress.

    @llberu:  No problem, I was reading your description and it was describing my dress to a T so I had to share 🙂 It took me quite a search to find it because like you I’m not a girly girl and I hadn’t worn a dress in over a year before I started trying on wedding dresses. It’s not really out there for people to find on the internet and I haven’t seen anything else quite like it. One thing my consultant told me which is probably relevant for you is that tulle is a bad idea for outdoor weddings because it catches on every leaf, twig, and blade of grass. Organza which is what the skirt of my dress is should glide right over.

    I love #5. If you can’t find a dress that you love with cap sleeves, you could always add them.

    @llberu:  5!! It looks like an A-line, or a slight ballgown without a lot of pouf?

    I love the sweetheart neckline, and definitely sleeveless!!

    You look amazing! 🙂

    @llberu:   Have you tried the Maggie Sottero dress called Emma?  I didn’t vote in your poll but when I looked at your photos in the dresses, the Emma dress came to mind as one you would look great in!  And it has detachable cap sleeves!
