Ladies I need your HONEST and UNBIASED opinion!
To begin, I’m a bit self-conscious about my body. So of course when the time came for dress shopping, I started out with the “safe” silouhette first: A-line. But after feeling somewhat underwhelmed in them, I tried on several fitted/sheeth dresses for fun and surprisingly liked a few! But looking at the pictures afterwards, I’m not so sure if it’s flattering on me?
The way I see it…design = important, but at the end of the day I wanna look my BEST on my wedding day. What do you think? Dress 1-3 are the dresses I liked. Dress 4 – 5 are the dresses I felt “meh” about, but by definition, should be more forgiving/flattering silhouette.
Dress 3: (I forgot to take off my bra in this fitting – sorry in advance for the boobs)
Thanks In Advance everyone!

I loooove dress 2 on you. It’s elongating and elegant. Dress 3 is my second choice.
I MUCH prefer sheaths on you than A-lines. You’ve got a great figure and the sheaths really show it off.

Another Bee loving Dress 2.

Dress 2 looks beautiful on you and you pull off dresses 1 – 3 much better then 4 & 5! Good luck!

Wow, you look fabulous in them all, but dress 1 is breathtaking! Your curves are absolutely stunning, Bee, and dress 1 is perfect!

dress 1 really wowed me and showed your figure off beautifully…I went back and looked at that one several times. That’s the jaw dropper dress in my opinion.

I love #1. I think more structure around the waist and hips in that dress give you a beautiful hourglass shape in a way that I don’t quite see in the other dresses. I will also add (because I am picky and tried on a lot of dresses) not all A-lines are created equal. Some are much more flattering than others. In particular I found those that didn’t have plunging backs to be more flattering because there is more structure to pull you in. Some A-lines are also a bit more fitted in the hips which I found more flattering and a less extreme transition between the waist and the hips.

I like #2. The a lines are really ‘blah’ on you. Work those curves!

I really like dress 2 and dress 3 almost the same. Dress 1 looks beautiful as well, but I personally don’t like the style of the skirt going out in this way. I like the flowy style better.
So you can tell that I like the fitted style better on you, than the A-line style. 😉

In brutal honesty, I think “necklines” 1-4 are truly hideous. It’s a trend I hope dies a sudden and painful death. I don’t care for fitted dresses in any case, usually, personal preference as well, of course. Number 5 ftw out of these, but if I were you, I’d explore some more options instead of locking in to just these two styles (unless you already did, of course)
ETA: in case anyone decides to get offended on your behalf while I’m sleeping, I am not knocking your figure, which is fab – you could wear anything. Just the dress style doesn’t appeal.
