I went dress shopping for the first time about three weeks ago (at DB) and narrowed it down to 2 dresses, went back the following week with just my mom and dad and got rid of one of the two but found 2 more I like. I never got the “this is my dress!” with any of the dresses I tried on so I don’t know if I should keep looking or if I’m just scared of making a decision and ending up with dress regret..
This has been my dream dress for about 6 months and I couldn’t wait to try it on. I really like it but it’s pretty heavy and definitely at the top of my price range.
I don’t know how I feel about the one shoulder.. I love what the dress does for my shape but the sleeve is poofy and reminds me of an 80’s prom dress. And it’s a bit plain.. But I had not 1, not 2, not even 3 but FOUR women come up to me while I had it on and tell me how beautiful I looked!
When I first walked out in this dress my mom gasped and got a little teary eyed. Everybody loved it. I really like it too, it just isn’t what I pictured myself in. I’m only 22 so I feel like it might be a little too old for me.. if that makes sense?
Sorry if the pics are huge, I still haven’t figured out how to resize them..

I do think #2 looks the best & I like the shoulder, but if you don’t, maybe you can try playing around with it & maybe having it be a little less poofy. Or, did you try on anything similar by the same designer that doesn’t have the one shoulder? I think you look great, but what’s most important is that you LOVE what you get!

I don’t think 1 is very flattering. Plus, all I see is dress. In 2 all I see is a beautiful bride. I agre with PP, if you’re not loving the ruffle, you could have it altered.

I think 1 looks amazing on you and I am so jealous!!! I tried that dress on and it looked horrific on me, but I loved it so much anyway I seriously almost bought it.

out of these dresses i think #2 is the best on you. the first one is too much dress and is not flattering.
by the sounds of it, it doesn’t sound like you’ve found the one yet. just remember, you should feel beautiful in your dress.

I think dress 3 is most flattering, but you’re right about it looking too “old” for you. Maybe keep looking and try on similar dresses to that one with fun ruffles or other features?

I think #2 is the most flattering on you. However, it doesn’t sound like you are especially thrilled with any of them. See what else they have that is similar to that dress or maybe find out if they can make it strapless if you don’t like the one shoulder. Have you tried any other shops?

I feel like No. 1 is not the most flattering on you. I’m full-figured and on the short side and have always found dresses with that much at the bottom make us women look much shorter unless you’re a model.
I like the general shape No. 2 gives you,but you can find othres with similar shapes and less ruffle on the shoulder strap. No. 3 is alright, but I agree it make you look a bit too old for 22.

Thank you ladies! I think I just needed some reassurance that these dresses weren’t for me. I feel like every else just thinks I’m being to picky but I want to absolutley love my dress and I just don’t love any of these!
Thanks for all the help!

I love #2! I think its the most flattering and I’m a sucker for one-shoulders so it definitely gets my vote. BUT if you don’t love any of them, they’re not for you!

Out of the three you posted, I think #2 is the most flattering. However, it doesn’t sound like you’re sold on it so I would keep looking.

#2 looks great on you, I bet you could have the seamstree de-poof the one shoulder, take some of the material away, and and a sparkle belt around your wait for some bling so the gown isn’t so plain as you put it.
However, you have time, if none of the dresses felt right, keep looking.

I think #2 is the most flattering! It looks beautiful on you! I don’t love the ruffle, but that could be altered.

I thought for sure #1 was going to have the most votes! It may not look the most figure flattering, but that’s probably because it’s not fitted properly on you. Once it’s altered and hugs you tight, I’m sure it will look amazing on you! I really find it the most breathtaking of the three. Especially the back!
Please give #1 another chance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
