    You can’t go wrong, these dresses are all so lovely on you! The second is my favorite on you.

    I vote the Gemma—personally, I bought Vera Wang Ethel, but it was between that and the Gemma.  The Gemma looks gorgeous on you!

    I think the Gemma hit too low, but the Kathleen is much better!

    Definitely Gemma!  But part of what makes it amazing is how it hugs your curves… 20 pounds lighter and it might fit differently.  I think you look amazing in it at your current size!

    I don’t care for the a-line on you, it just hangs on your figure.  I think you definitely found a silhouette that works for you with the first 2 dresses.  Fawn, June, Fiona, and Holly are all trumpet/mermaid styles in the VW line that could work.  There are 2 others from Spring 2012 that I can’t find their name- one was green and one was grey, both had big bow belts when shown on the runway.  I tried on the green one and it had really cool detailing on the bodice.  I have the Hayley, a big ballgown, but I’m envious of brides who can pull off the slimmer silhouette!

    I like the last one but that is because I am not a fan of mermaid styles at all. I think it would look even better with a sweetheart neckline 🙂

    20 lbs!!  OMG, I can’t even imagine how thin you must have been!  In my opinion, a little bit of curves looks great in a wedding dress.  If you look at some of the models in the dresses, they just don’t look as good!  But I know what it’s like to want to be a size you used to be & I’m working on that myself 😉  Just saying, you look great now, so if you only lose 5-10 lbs, be happy!  And also I voted for the first one 😉
