    First off, congrats on such a huge accomplishment. You look great!

    I chose number #2, I think it’s most flattering on you. All the gowns are beautiful though, but #2 is my fav πŸ™‚

    You look fabulous! And congrats!!!

    I love #1 because I am a sucker for the intricate lace/beaded dresses. I think they have such a romantic feel to them. But I also love the detail on dress #2 and how it cinches your waist and flatters your figure perfectly!

    That probably didn’t help any! I’m indecisive too! :o)

    Be careful in choosing a dress.  You’ll likely have to buy another one by September.  My mother had gastric bypass and she lost weight steadily (about 225 lbs total) for two years.  I’d wait until the last possible minute to order.   Or else choose one that can be taken in easily.  Or don’t spend too much on one, because even selling it brand new your likely to get your money back.

    @rocktheshade: I just wanted to say congrats on the 160 loss! I had wls myself 6 months ago & have lost just over 100. How are you finding it? πŸ™‚

    I vote for #4, and you don’t need sleeves. That swoopy cappy thing is gorgeous.

    You look fantastic in all of them, but I agree with a previous poster.  I would seriously wait a few more months before ordering.  Try on some more in a couple months and then decide.  Congrats on the weight loss!

    congrats! i think #2 is the most flattering to your shape..it looks gorgeous on you!

    if you lose more weight you can always alter the dress. i wouldn’t worry too much about that!
