    I voted for the last one but I might have gone with the pink one if the belt was higher, it’s not hitting you in the most flattering spot right now but I love the top lace design on it

    Have to agree with you… the first one is the least flattering of all the dresses.  And there is just something odd about the lines at the top.

    The second one is a beautiful dress, and your back is just gorgeous in it.  I think the issue with it is it seems to not fit you properly – too big in the cups, a little too snug in the waist and then to big in the hips again.  If it were fitted properly (maybe talk to a seamstress?) it could be stunning on you.

    The last one is pretty but personally, the pink tule is both striking and fits you the best. The cups come up high enough and add lovely fullness while the corset style is really flattering. And it is a very memorable (in a good way) dress.

    Removing the back of the last dress is something I’d be concerned about.  Dresses with illusion tops/backs are constructed with less structure than strapless dresses so you may have trouble with it staying put on your wedding day. 

    Two months is plenty of time to have a dress altered so I wouldn’t worry about that. The real question is, which one do you FEEL the best in?  Which one has the details you like the most? Is there one that you feel is more representative of your personality? If so… go with that one 🙂

    jessa89:  I think the last one, the white with lace back is the most flattering of all the photos.  If it isn’t the one, keep looking.

    I think the dress that has a bit of pink to it is absolutely stunning and fits you very well. It also makes such a statement and doesn’t look like a cookie cutter dresss. Can you call around to other stores to see if they have the same one and if you can purchase the sample? Oftentimes the designers list on their websites who sells their lines, and you may get lucky!!

    I REALLY love the last one with the sweetheart neckline (rather bustline). Gorgeous!! That dress is definitely for you :)) and if you feel a little iffy about the back of the dress, don’t forget to consider the veil! That’ll cover the back anyway…. Try not to get anything too see-through if it bothers that much but that dress with the sweetheart neckline is a winner!!!

    As a bride who wore the second allure dress, I can say confidently that the lace back is a million times more beautiful when it’s properly fitted. I wouldn’t alter it to be strapless though, I’m not sure how it would stay up because  it has a very low back and it’s so soft and flowy that you’d have to add some serious structure to keep it up. 

    I love the pink allure dress on you, and voted for that one. It seems like you’re really drawn to a strapless dress, and it’s so beautiful and unique!

    The pink one doesn’t hit your waist at the proper place and makes you look larger than you are. I like the styling on that the best, but the waist location is a problem. The fabric on the mermaid looks like a nightmare to iron/keep wrinkle-free. The only dress that I feel looks decent in the fit category is the last white one.

    I don’t care for the first two dresses. I reallly like the third one but when I saw the forth one it took my breath away. It’s very ethereal. I love the back and I love it with the straps.

    jessa89:  I’m definitely in agreement with you about the first dress. I’m not crazy about heavy satin and I’m just not too crazy about that style.

    I love the skirts on the last two, but would have to say Allure 9269 is my favorite because of the color of the skirt and beautiful lace detail on the top. I would love to see it with sleeves added 😀
