    The structured/modified trumpet is lightyears ahead of the others.  And look at that…its the same shape as the Georgina (which I voted for when you first posted the poll) Wink

    I am liking you in the princess ball gown or the OTT A-line dress as you carried both really well. Especially the OTT A-line as it is such a unique design. Never seen anything like it. Not exactly liking the mermaids at all.

    I am in LOVE with that ballgown! Honestly, #1, #3, #6 #7 all look great. I think you could pull off any shape dress you want, it’s just finding the details that you like. Good luck! I voted for the ballgown, but the others were lovely too!

    @peonyinparis:  love the long, detailed post!  my thoughts, from favorite to least favorite:

    2)  i voted for this one.  love this.  very flattering on you.  simple, elegant and beautiful.  

    3)  i feel the same way – i detest corset lacing.  but otherwise the fit is quite nice and for a ballgown, it’s not completely over the top.  i love the way the lace graduates away to tulle on the skirt.  

    5)  it’s a toss-up with #1.  i think the train and lace on this one might have an edge on #1 though. 

    1) fit is lovely, not crazy about the heavy lace at the bottom hem. 

    4) very cool in concept, but the structural details are waaay too distracting.  

    6) i personally do not like OTT dresses, so this is easily my least favorite.  it could be ok if it didn’t have those weird butterfly pieces of material sticking out all over.  i find it all very distracting.

    good luck!!!

    Maybe I’m biased, but Asians tend to look REALLY REALLY good in trumpets/mermaids. Asian women tend to (I don’t have an Asian body) have petite figures and those silhouettes really compliment them.

    If I had your body, I’d definitely be going for less of a ballgown and more of a mermaid.

    @peonyinparis:  I’m glad to see that someone else wrote an extremely long, detailed dress shopping post!  Smile

    I chose both ballgown and structured modified mermaid/trumpet lace.  You have an amazing figure, so you’d probably look amazing in a brown paper sack … But those two stood out to me as being slightly more flattering than the others.
