jennibear : Hi there! I think option D looks the best. Plain and simple compared to the other options and more mature looking than how it currently is 🙂

c or d – I actually like c as it emphasizes your waist – but also, this dress is so pretty and looks great on you. Don’t stress too much about mature. Sans the bow, it’s great in all suggestions.

I think C or D, leaning towards D. But honestly, I think the sleeves are part of what make it look young too.

I like D best, though I’m not a huge fan of the ball gown silhouette and think a slimmer lower section would be more flattering.

jellybellynelly : Agreed about the sleeves. I think making these cap sleeves or off the shoulder could be nice.

I would cap the sleeves or at least shorten them, take out a layer of the skirt and use a thin belt, no satin. Def remove some of the lace from the neckline.

C or D. I love how C cinches your waist. Maybe with a different belt?

Contrary to what others are saying, I think the sleeves are great. I vote D! Though I confess I’m still really into the idea of making this tea length (totally get it if that’s not your thing though).

Smoothing out the neckline and removing the fluffy tulle is brilliant. Much better. I would definitely try D first since if you decide you do need the belt it should be easy to add, and you can try out different ones or make it removable.

I like A or D (i.e., I’m not positive which skirt I prefer, but I think you should skip the belt or get a lace belt that won’t stand out as much).
I like the sleeves (love the wide, off-the-shoulder neckline that they give you), but they might be hitting you at a slightly weird spot on the arm. They’re a little too long to be short-sleeves (which would be just above the elbow, or higher), but they’re a little too short to be true 3/4 length or full-length sleeves. So, perhaps you could either shorten or lengthen them a bit? (I’d shorten, unless you really hate your elbows or something!)

I voted for C, however I’m not a fan of that specific belt. But with the picture of the dress on you I love the belt and how great it makes your waist look. So I would personally go with a different belt with more sparkle…less satin. I think it looks so much more elegant than in your last post, so your going to look amazing.
I for one love the sleeves and don’t think they look childish at all. I also love tea length but that’s a personal preference. Post pics of the final!

D, but I would reconsider the sleeves. They hit your shoulders at a very awkward angle and are the wrong length
