please help me choose a dress! i’ve been to 7 shops in the last three days, so i’m all confused and shopped out. please don’t say “none” unless you absolutely hate them all because.. well.. i’m shopped out. haha 😛
they’re all casablancas! in the first two dresses, the second pic are of modified necklines that i think i like better – its a very rough way to tell, but i tried my best! the beading on dress two is old and yellowed – a new one wouldn’t be that yellow. i tried on a newer version of that dress at another shop to see what the coloring would be and the pic is included 🙂 both these are more fitted, like mermaid i think?
on dress three, its hard to see in the pics but there is a silver beading detail under the chest, its quite large. i dont really like how it looks, but i’d order it without that detail if i choose that one. this one isnt as mermaid-fitted, but i liked it anyway. surprising!
dress 1 – casablanca 1902
dress 2 – casablanca 1827
same dress, different shop
dress 3 – casablanca 2072
detail of the silver beadwork that i’d likely opt out of – its hard to see in the pictures

I think sweetheart is definitely the way to go, but you have a lovely figure and any of your options would look stunning.

Love the first Casablanca, it’s looks amazing on your figure . It looks gorgeous with either neckline, I prefer the sweetheart only if they can do the alteration in production, with the beading it’s not something I would want to have changed in alterations.

Sweetheart neckline definitely!
All 3 dresses are similar but I voted dress #1 because I like the way it drapes better. Very flattering, and normally I don’t like tafetta at all. Very pretty

I like the first dress with the sweetheart the most by far. It looks great on you!

I love the last dress; the lace at the bottom is gorgeous. Would you get it with or without the straps?

#1 with the sweetheart! Really really gorgeous! #3 is my next choice.

@stuckinwonderland: aw, thats sweet! thank you! i’m actually really short – 4’11, so dress shopping has been very stressful trying not to look too stumpy 😛
@ChemistryBride: luckily, casablanca will change the neckline in production! i had asked that too, because i was concerned about the beading. it will be an extra $50, not bad imo!
@Cyri: yes, they’re all very similar – i had one thing in mind and stuck to it, hehe
@MeiFrancis: thank you! I’m worried about the belly pudge after dinner. its very unforgiving around the belly!
@eocenia: hmm… i think the straps you are seeing is of my bra, hahaha! i didnt have a strapless bra so i wore a nude bra. they are all strapless dresses 🙂 if you’re talking about the beaded closeup pic, i’m not sure if the owner had modified it to add straps? but i’d get it without!
I keep flip flopping between liking the 2nd dress with deeper neckline and the third. i wanted a mermaid/fit and flare, which the third really isn’t. but for some reason i still like the third a lot! its tough 🙁 my mom said she liked them all.. haha
keep the comments coming! so helpful, thank you!

@sugarcube: Haha! Ok, strapless it is then! Good luck finding the right dress – I know how hard it can be. Just ordered my dress today, so happy to have it off the TO DO list! 🙂

Ooooh, that’s a really tough call. They are all beautiful, though I think sweetheart is the best neckline on you in general. I voted for dress #1 with a sweetheart.
