sophielle:  Of all of these, the only one that I love on you is the Jenny Woo Monarch. Second would be the Nina… pretty back and it’s very flattering.

sophielle:  I love 4 (with straps) 5 & 6… they are the most visually interesting and fit your figure well.

I really like both Jenny Yoo! I think Jenny Yoo Monarch looks stunning as a halter. Please post pictures of your round 2 shopping trip. I love Rosa Clara and would love to see her line on a real bride 🙂

hey OP I liked th eMOnarch dress best, too! So simple, so beautiful!

I LOVED parts of that Sarah Seven dress (the back, wow!) but it had too much going on with the flowerly shoulder strap things, so I am am sort of glad it was out of your price range becuase it wasn’t perfect.

I know this might shock some, but I wasn’t wowwed by any of them on you. I know this sounds harsh as they are pretty dresses but I just think your a beautiful lady with a fab figure and these didn’t do you justice. Sweetheart necklines definately suits you better. Ones with straps seems to cover you too much. One of the David Bridal with the sweetheart neckline suits you best on top, but it looks see through on the side view. You have good shoulders, show them off. Straps looked too bulky on you. But that is just my view. It does help if they fit though and these are big on you. Prehaps in the right size, they won’t look so bulky

sophielle:  I think you’ve cracked the shape. I think you do look good in sheath dresses but it’s all about the neckline. I also liked the shape the sash gave you. Bringing in the waist to create the hourglass figure. Have you tried any illusion necklines. Like this? Ignoring the rest of the dress ie shape and pattern. Very similar to one of your dresses but just a bit lighter and doesn’t take over your upper body.

Having said that, out of all the dresses above, I do prefer the HP dress but I just wish it was more sheath shaped. You can tell I was a nightmare when I went dress shopping. Wanting to chop bits of dresses up and making my own version. I tried on about 60 and finally got there  !
