I like dresses 1 and 3.
I like dresses 1 and 3.
The bonny by FAR looks the best on you. I can’t comment on the last two dresses, you would need to try those on as well.
I agree with the other posters, the Bonny! So very flattering. And pretty!
I love the Bonny and the Maggie on you!
I love the bonny dress on you it looks beautiful. I would go with that one and not bother with trying to order a dress online when you haven’t even tried it on yet. You may not like them as much in person
#3 is by far the most flattering! Also, I hate to say it, but #2 has to go (it’s by far the least flattering). The last two don’t wow me but that could change once they’re actually on it.
I’d say #3 is the winner!
Mrs.Vanilla: I voted for the Allure. Here’s why:
#1 – OK, but I think it makes you look a bit lumpy in the middle. I would really like it if it were more a-line than trumpet. I think a slim a-line would look great on you.
#2 – I don’t think it does you any favours.
#3 – Wow! Makes you look so much slimmer than the first two. Also a really gorgeous dress. I’m not a fan of the neckline though.
#4 – I think this dress would really work on your figure, for the same reason that #3 works. I voted for it ahead of #3 because I like the neckline more than #3, and also because if it’s a dress you keep thinking about, it could have something for you that #3 lacks. When you try it on I would experiment with clipping it so that the skirt looks more of a slim a-line, just to see what it looks like.
#5 – Really gorgeous, but I think the combination of off-the-shoulder neckline, fairly dense lace sleeves and wide skirt might make you look larger. As I can see you have already ordered it, you won’t know until you actually try it, so we’ll see!
I’m for either the Lorie or Bonny. I actually like the Lorie on you slightly more than the Bonny – I’ll agree that the Bonny has the most flattering fit, but something about the more fitted look of the Lorie really works on you, IMO! Both of them are gorgeous on you!
If you already ordered the last two, do you know when they come in?<br />I’d say post pics of those on you, and then it’ll be easier for people to vote! (Of the ones you tried on, 3 is definitely my fav).
NOTLBride: The Evelyn will arrive in January and the Allure will arrive in April. I think that’s why I’m stressing out a bit. I know I need to see them on to know how I feel but I’m worried about holding out for Allure and hating it when it arrives. And of course the return policies state that they need to be returned within 10 days of delivery, so I won’t have much time to dwell on a dress.
One concern I have with the Bonny is that it feels very “Spring”-like and my wedding is in October. Not sure if that makes sense? I actually always pictured myself in a dress with sleeves (thanks to my flabby arms) and it really surprised me how much I liked the Bonny. If I end up with Lorie I do plan on wearing the optional Cap Sleeves.
Bonny for sure! You look great!
The Bonny looks gorgeous. Second pick is the Allure.
