#3 Looks amazing on you- it gives you such a beautiful figure. I’m a little jealous- its very similar to what I though I wanted when I went dress shopping, and I ended up with a lace/satin ball gown that I love. But I still adore that style of dress- just not on my body. On you though i think its perfect.

I understand dresses 1 and 2 are beautiful but 3 and 4 are definitely more classic and flatering ! My favorite is number 3 but also number 4 would fit your garden party theme. Good luck I know this is difficult, I also have 4 favourites dresses so far.
Since you are in the UK, Wich store did you go to ? It’s been very difficult to find a proper store here in London.

That last one is INCREDIBLE on you! My second favorite is the 3rd one. You look great in all of them though.

I full out gasped when I saw you in number 4. It is so classic and suits you so well. It might also be the hair up and bangs that sells me on it but I love love love it.
Number 2 would be my second choice, it`s unique which is why I like it with a vintage feel.

@lila2012: I went to a shop in Birmingham called Go Bridal, which is where I found the first dress. I think they have a few other branches as well, and they tend to carry dresses that are slightly lower in price. The three others are from a shop called Silk in Staffordshire, which I can’t recommend enough. My Maid/Matron of Honor got her dress there when she got married and had a similarly fantastic experience. I think part of the reason the last three dresses are so different is that almost all the dresses they have there are a bit special or unique.
Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts. I wonder if I might actually be more torn now! Fortunately, I have about a month before my stepmom will be coming from America to help me make the final decision, so plenty of time to mull it over. And thank you for all your kind and reassuring comments about my appearance. You are all lovely and excellent confidence boosters.

my favourite by far is no.4, the tea length one. with your fringe it just looks so audrey hepburn! stylish, chic, playful yet classic! love it, love it! my 2nd favourite would be no.1. i’m a sucker for the art deco look & i think the design of the beading is so flattering. simple but very striking, and it streamlines your figure. i’m afraid i think the eden does nothing for your figure at all. i know it has probably become an iconic dress at this stage, but i just i don’t think it’s the one for you. for me, no.3, while clearly beautifully made, is a little ‘safe’ & although beautiful, it just doesn’t stand out as much as no.4, to me.
By The Way stop berating your figure!

Goodness, woman! You have NOTHING to be concerned about. We women are so hard on ourselves….you’re beautiful with an amazing figure.
I love every dress except #1. I especially love #2 but also love #4. #3 is also very flattering on you (please don’t think it isn’t!) but it’s less unique than the others. Tough call!

I order them 3, 4, 2, 1. I think 1 makes you look like you have no shape at all; 2 is a bit better. 3, on the other hand, makes you look amazing!

PLEASE please please pick #4! It looks sooo great on you!!! (and you have an amazing figure!)

2 is my absolute favorite, followed by 4. 3 looks typical to me. 1 is cool, but not my personal style. Though you look great in all of them.

1 and 3, in that order. I love the art deco feel of 1.
Also, find a way to work on your body confidence issue, because you have a great figure and should be enjoying trying on all these dresses!

Wow! Each one of those dresses look stunning on you! You can definitely pull off any of those styles! I love #2 and #4 – but you won’t go wrong with whatever you pick!

No 3 for me 🙂 I think it’s most flattering.
