    Girlfriend, you look gorgeous in all of these dresses. Do not be ashamed of your body, you look perfect! Bridal sizing is an easy way to make us all feel fat. I wear a street size 4 and most of the bridal samples wouldnt zip all the way up….sorry what?!

     

    I think any of these dresses would be great! I love the tea length, and also the lace with the bolero. The other two are not really my style, but beautiful nonetheless.

     

    Sorry this is in no way helpful, but be proud of your body. Wedding planning is stressful enough, without the added bonus of body loathing.

    Hi, first of all you are not overweight and you are really really pretty so I don’t get why you feel like your size is a problem? However, I think dress 2 draws attention to your stomach by creating a crease between your chest area and the top of the stomach so just for that reason I would say that any one of the other three is a better choice. One of the other posters said you look so happy in dress 4 and I agree.

    #2 is by far my favorite! It looks so sweet and classic without looking costumey. But to be 100% honest, I think all four of them look incredible on you. Which did you feel most comfortable in? 

    I love #4, too. My order would probably be: 2, 4, 1, 3. The third one is nice, but it is not as unique as the others, in my opinion. The fact that you can rock the vintage-y, different look makes me want to tell you to GO FOR IT! But ultimately, you just need to choose what you’ll be most happy and comfortable in. 

    Looking too awesome in several dresses to choose is not a bad predicament to be in, though!

    I love number 4 on you, it’s stunning. I could be biased though as I’m going to be wearing Justin Alexander 8465 which is a tea length dress. I love them!

     

    Oh and I would kill for your figure!!!x

    Edited for spelling mistake!

    I love the 2nd dress! It’s unique and you look stunning in it! Then I like #3, #2, and I’m not a fan of the bow underneath the breasts in #4. I’m also not really a fan of the pleats.

    What feels like dress-up about number four to you? 

    To me, it’s almost the most natural of the bunch. Conversely, number three is “I’m a bride!”

    Please don’t go for dress 3! I feel like i have seen the same thing a million times on these boards 🙁

    You look amazing in all of the dresses but I love the Jenny Packham and surprisingly I also love the last dress, it’s just fabulous on you!

    I wanted to add that I am sad you feel bad about your body. You have a fabulous figure most girls would envy.
