    Dress #2 all the way. And with the belt because it’s hitting at your smallest point. You look amazing and your shape is beautiful.

    GLAMBYLEO:  Dress #1 is STUNNING on you!! If you go with a lace style, I think that #4 also looks lovely on your figure.

    I know that #2 is the winner, but I think that lines of that dress where it changes from lace to tulle at the bottom is a little disjointed. The shape is quite flattering on you though, as well. You sure can rock the mermaid style well!! 🙂

    You are gorgeous! Of those options, I like dress #2 the best as it really does give you that hourglass shape.

     

    Since you asked for honest opinions, I will say that I would make sure the back of the dress hits you in a flattering spot. Strapless dresses can create “back cleavage” that isn’t flattering and makes women look bigger than they really are.

    GLAMBYLEO:  I think #2 gives you the best shape.  While others mentioned things with sleeves, I would disagree.  You have great curves and I think you should rock that!  Sleeves, higher necklines actually accentuate things you probably want to not call attention to.  I have a larger bust and thought I would totally need a higher neckline…thought about lace.  When I put it on, I felt like my boobs were being suffocated and when I looked in the mirror it was so much worse.  White/white shades of fabric call attention to things, not hide them.  If you want to keep everything in place and feel covered enough, try a higher peaked sweetheart neckline.  It will give the appearance of a v-neck, which is so great for accentuating and longating your face, but will add a tad more coverage.  A coreset back also does wonders for a waistline, and much moreso than if you just wear shapewear.  It will keep the dress up tight (they do actually stretch out as you wear them throughout the wedding and you dont want to be pulling it up all night).  The shape of #2 is the perfect amount of flare i think, but maybe also consider a slightly less intense fit and flare dress.  It’s key to find a dress where the flare starts at the right stop….too high and yuo get the drop waist look which is honestly flattering on 1% of the population, or too low- makes anyone look stumpy.  You want the visual appearance of a tiny waist and long legs! Does wonders for pix 🙂

    I have the same shape you do and did not choose such a fitted gown for this reason. I wore an 18 dress and bought a ballgown. the width on the bottom balanced me out and I cinched in the waist with a corset. It gave me an hourglass shape vs looking like a barrel, which is how I felt in the fitted dresses. Perhaps you could try a different shape and post pics?

    I voted 2 and 4. I think four is so flattering and classically pretty. I really liked it. 

     

    But dress 2… HOLY CRAP YOU’RE A BOMBSHELL! It looks freaking amazing! And so flattering!!! You look jaw dropping!

    Dress 2 of the ones you have shown because the flare  is in the best place  compared to the others. Or maybe 4, but with a narrower belt.  But, like a couple of of pps  I think it may be to your advantage to try other shapes too, like A line or smaller ballgown. These  are the shapes that flatter the  most I think,  for many of us who don’t have the tiniest of waists  .

    You have  a beautiful face and hair, and shoulders and decolletage and a ballgown would really display those assets I believe. Certainly no sleeves needed .

    Dress #2 for sure – for neckline and shape.

    But can I say you look lovely in all of them?  Seriously you are made for bridal dresses – they bring out your curves in a great way!!  Congrats 🙂
