    I love the first one on you! It makes you look very slim and gorgeous and I LOVE the back!

     

    AND YOU DON’T NEED TO LOSE ANY WEIGHT! 🙂

    @mrsv- I think that’s the Jim Hjelm model.

     

    Have you tried any of these on?  You really need to see the dress on your body to see what will really flatter your figure.  That being said, I love 8904!  Its gorgeous!

    There was an episode of Say Yes to the Dress on just tonight where a bride to be tried on the first one, and even before seeing this episode, I loved that dress, but it really has nice movement. I love the high neckline; I think it’s very classy. I like mermaids when I see them on real brides, but in general, I don’t tend to go for them in the abstract like this.

    I do agree with PPs, though. Things I loved online looked awful on me in person, and I realized I like stuff I never would have considered!

    I LOVE that first dress.  I am the same size, and very curvy, and I actually wanted that dress- I was obsessed with it!

    #2 is my favorite, with #3 a close second. And as with all these polls, my least favorite one is in the lead 🙂 I think 2 and 3 show off the derriere very well. #1 makes even the skinny model look thicker, so I’m not sure how good it would look on a real person.

    I like the first the best, but higher necklines can be unflattering if you have a large chest. The second is probably the most flattering and necklines can be adjusted. The combination of the strapless dress and the very high waist seems difficult to wear on a curvy figure.

    But you do have to try things on and you have 5 seasons of new dresses  between now and your wedding! At the most buy it 1 year before the wedding.

    This is too funny!! I was just looking for pictures of girls in literally the exact same dresses you have here (which is why your blog popped up in the search). I am going through the same situation. Mother had the same reaction to these dresses, and I am still in love with the first dress. Your last post was a year ago, so any success finding the dresses? Have you tried them on??
