    The skirt of the David’s gown is very flattering. It makes you look longer and leaner. Plus, that gown looks like it fits you in the picture. So it’s hard to go with the ivory because the fit in that picture is sort of frumpy. And the way it falls on your waist makes you look wider, almost like horizontal stripes.

    I do love the color of the ivory though, and I’m sure if it was tailored you’d look great! But gotta go with the David’s based on those pictures.

    I don’t think the grey gown looks like a wedding dress (reads bridesmaid to me). So I think the sleeved lace gown assuming it is fitted properly with alterations is the best out of the two. However I think you could do better than either of these options. I know we are our own worst critics, but for what it is worth, I don’t think there is anything at all wrong with your arms from the pictures posted. Good luck!

    I really dislike the ivory one – it’s a very unflattering shape (where the waist hits is all wrong, I also really dislike how the shirt bit sort of overlaps the gathering of the skirt and the skirt just hangs like a lace curtain). The grey one is much much nicer doesnt look very bridal.

    Can we see some of the others you tried on? I really think there is something better out there for you than either of these.

    I love the grey one and think your arms look fine but I hate my arms with a passion so I understand the feeling. I hid mine with my veil but you could also consider getting a shawl. I didnt wear my veil all night but it was nice to have options with photos.

    I would not consider you full figured at all. I’m not a fan of either dress. I think you can do so much better. If you don’t like your arms, you can always add a topper or wrap to a dress.

    I personally think you can find something nicer than both of those – The skirt of the grey looks far more stunning than the ivory but I personally wouldn’t go with that color. The ivory one isn’t too flattering in my opinion, but I think you can find something that will look stunning on you!!

    Also I want to add that you have a really nice figure and your arms look fine!

    I just want you to feel and look your best on your big day – and that means neither of these dresses. You have an hourglass shape with a slim waist, and you have a really nice neck/upper chest area. Find something that shows all of that off!

    futuremrspk :  I think the David’s dress compliments your figure much better than the ivory dress. It doesn’t look super bride-y right now, but if you custom ordered it in ivory I think it would be stunning in you!

    I think you should get something with similiar lines to the davids dress. It’s extremely flattering on you. Shame about the colour. I think you’d regret going with either of these dresses though. It’s clear you don’t love them 🙁
