I think the Decklyn is my favorite, it makes your waist look INSANELY tiny and when the top is fitted it will be very flattering. 

Your favorite is gorgeous as well and it would be hard to top either of those!

All four are gorgeous, you really had wonderful luck your first time dress shopping and don’t need to look any further.

But for more realistic opinions: 

There’s something so unique about the Dory that goes beyond the silver bodice- I’m in love with this one. 

The Decklyn is very flattering for your figure. 

The first Valenta is ultra feminine and romantic. 

The second Valenta has an amazing cut…..

….so still undecided. Yeah, get all 4 ๐Ÿ™‚

They all look so good on you! I don’t think you can go wrong.

I only went dress shopping once – I tried on a total of 5 dresses! I had no regrets, I got married in October and I still love my dress!

I love the first dress, but all of them look great on you!

I had a very low dress budget ($200), so I couldn’t be too picky. I went dress shopping at a salon where I *knew* I wouldn’t be buying dresses; I just wanted to get a sense of which styles looked good on me. I tried on a total of 8 dresses in totally different styles/fabrics, and all of us (me, my 2 friends who went with me, my family, and my Future In-Laws (who saw photos)) all agreed on one style. I found a sample dress in that style in my size on Tradesy for exactly $200, shipped, and bought it. Couldn’t be happier with my decision!

Could you get a petticoat to “fluff” out the Decklyn more? 

Honestly though, the one that was your favorite is gorgeous, and classic. Once it’s tailored to you I think it will have a similar effect as the Decklyn–I think the plunging neckline adds to the tiny waist effect but either way you will be stunning!

They all look fabulous on you! Your favorite is just gorgeous!

I bought my dress on my first shopping trip. It was the first dress I tried on and I knew it was perfect! If you love it, you should go for it!

I love the Alvina dresses, but any of these would look gorgeous on you. I think you found an amazing silhouette for your body so pick the one that speaks to you!
