Went dress shopping for the first time yesterday and found a few that I liked but wanted some outside opinions…
Dress #1 (David’s Bridal mermaid)
Dress #2 (David’s Bridal Oleg Cassini)
Dress #3 (Allure 8950)
Thanks for your help!!
ETA: I’m not sure why some of the pictures are sideways:(

Oh! And if you could tell me why you picked the one you did (others not flattering, favor ball gowns, etc) that would be awesome! Thanks:)

I like the DB ballgown the best. I am not a fan of the tiny ruffles on the allure, and I don’t think the draping on the back of the mermaid is flattering at all

@LivingInPink99: IMO, I think the DB bsllgown is the most flattering. Do you have more appointments scheduled?

#1 and #2 (ballgown) make you look skinny skinny skinny! 🙂 I usually dont like mermaid, but its so flattering! the other one has A LOT going on for MY taste.

I love the first dress. I think its very flattering and shows your shape fabulously. Its also very slimming. I do not like the second dress at all. I like the 3rd dress but I think the first one is the best.

I love the oleg cassini ballgown. It looks great on you:) and I chose an oleg cassini ballgown, from davids bridal, last week. (ct258) I just haven’t made my post yet!

@Mrs Canuck: thanks! I do have more appointments scheduled which is why I want to narrow these 3 down to 1….that way when I find a new dress I like I only have to compare it to one other one:)

@MeiFrancis: I wasn’t the biggest fan of the back of the mermaid either, but I really loved the front! Thanks for your opinion:)

I chose the first because I think it does the most for your figure–you look lovely in it. I also like the second for a more stately/princessy look. I don’t love the third, it feels overly busy on your frame to me.

I absolutely adore the Allure! I think they’re all gorgeous on you, but the Allure really has that “wow” factor!

@LivingInPink99: I voted for dress 2 because it looks so nice on you and I’ll say it, I really don’t care for mermaid gowns…BUT you really do look beautiful in the mermaid you picked (#1), and you look very balanced in it. I just think they are too trendy right now (just my opinion, don’t mean to offend anyone). So, in terms of style I like #2 the best but in terms of what looks best on you you could go with #1 or #2. #3 reminds me of an ostrich, but I do like the bodice on it.

I like the fitted dress on you and I like the Db ballgown. I just do not like the beading on the ballgown.

I think the Allure takes my favorite elements of the first 2 dresses and combines then. AND adds extra flair. Definitely unique. I love it more than the first 2 combined! Nothing against DB dresses…I got mine there! Woo!
