1,2, and 3 all make you look tiny and as if you have no hips. #4 does NOT have this effect at all – it might be because you have your arms up to take the photo. Since you posted 4 dresses, I get the sense that you aren’t there yet – usually it comes down to 2. Maybe try them on again?!

@sfchick… So, is it a good thing that I look tiny with no hips, or not such a good thing? 🙂 I think I do have to try them on again, but I do think my dress is one of these 4. The first three were taken from an angle, and I have no slips on at all, so I think they do define my waist/hips more than the pictures show. They all nipped in my waist nicely (well, what waist I have… my midsection is kind of rectangular!).

I agree with sfchick. #4 doesn’t really flatter your figure. It doesn’t show your waist! You have a great figure don’t hide it!
With that said.. I like #1 the best. It’s romantic… like I would expect for a garden wedding and reception. #2 is also another great choice.. it shows your figure and has a more modern classic look for a garden wedding. I think either would be a great choice.

#2!! it’s fashion-forward and it looks really great on. My friend just got married in your dress #4, and the whole night she was pulling it up because the fabric was so heavy. They are all beautiful, but I say go for #2 🙂

I like #2 best for the unique details and how it flatters your figure. It might just be the angles of the photos, but I feel like 1 and 3 make you look a little top heavy with hips looking a bit narrow. #4 is also pretty but I like the way #2 makes your waist look very defined and tiny.

@jamieynn_109: having no hips and looking tiny is a GREAT THING! 🙂 See mandigrl04 ‘s comments below mine – she hits it right on the head! 🙂
So if your dress is one of the four, I’d suggest going back to salon(s) and really trying the gowns out – walk around, sit down, bend down, do a little disco dancing, etc – that way you can get a feel for the movement of each gown. This will probably x out a couple immediately for you. Of the four gowns, I think number one photographs the best – it looks a bit more expensive and the vertical seams really accentuate your awesome figure. The skirting on 2 and 3 looks very matte and kind of flat – this might just be the lighting. From looking at #2, it appears like it’s going to wrinkle easy. Spend some time sitting in the gown and see what it looks like when you stand up.
Sorry for the lengthy post – I’ve had too much coffee today 🙁 Please post more photos so that we can get better idea of the gowns – maybe stand by front window of salon? The Galina gown is a great modern gown but I suggest only for really tall women who want to hide their hips and thighs. Just my 2 cents, go with your gut and listen to the women at the store 🙂

I voted for #1 but I like #2 almost as much. I guess it just depends on the feel you’re going for. But all four are really flattering and pretty!

Oh I like the last one you best. It’s just so soft!

I voted wrong, I mean to vote for #2, I also love #4 on you. They are the most figure flattering, imo.

I really like #1 – I tried that dress on when I was shopping and found it very flattering. That being said – I love #4 on you too! Good luck – any of the dresses would be a good choice!
