    #2 is really flattering. I like #4 too.

    Dress three makes you look like a freakin’ greek goddess! So gorgeous! I mean, they all look good, but damnnn #3 is very flattering.  (side note: my SIL was sitting next to me as I looked at this and made me scroll back up to tell me she wants your ass as it shows in the first pic haha!) and she also agrees on #3

    ETA: I don’t think the setting matters.  Wear what you love!

    @SleepyBee:  None of them (I think you should keep looking).

    1. This is prettiest of the four dresses, and it fits your body the best (and from the photos, I think you know you look pretty amazing in it). However, the slit looks super-awkward made with all of those layers (looks more like a tear than a slit), and I am just not feeling how it looks when you aren’t moving or trying to make it show.
    2. No. I am not as pickup-adverse as I was when I first joined the Bee, but these are one of the exact kinds I despise. They look like random fat pockets on the skirt (esp. from the side). And unfortunately, the bodice isn’t giving you enough shape to redeem the skirt’s shortcomings.
    3. No. It looks like a satin comforter, and makes you look way straighter than you actually are. The deeper sweetheart looks great on you, but the empire fit does your waist no favours.
    4. NO. The top part of the bodice is really boxy/overly-structured. So, it has that “embellished full-body cast” look that I don’t think is flattering on anyone. And I don’t care for the asymmetrical 90s Homecoming ruching (esp. paried with the straight skirt). 

    You have an amazing figure, love (#1 confirms that), and #1 is the only one that comes the closest to doing you proper justice. You have plenty of time to find your dress. So, I honestly think you should keep looking. You can do better.

    I recommend trying on more gowns with 1) true sweetheart necklines (like #1), 2) natural waists, and/or 3) fitted bodices.

    I like dress 4 the best, I think it is most flattering for your figure. But I can understand you can feel plain in it, I felt the same way about similar dresses I tried on. I like 1 the second best, although not the slit (not because of your figure, I just don’t like slits on wedding dresses personally, I think they look less “weddingish”). Dress 2 is a nice shape but I don’t think the pick ups and very flattering (on anyone, not just you), the top half is very flattering for your shape. Personally I don’t like 3 and think it is the least flattering and the fabric looks cheap. Have you thought of trying on some more? Perhaps none of them are “wow” for you because they are not the one.

    I think #4 has the wow factor you are looking for, especially wiht your body type. It also suits the setting the best. It has a flowly romantic feeling that goes with the cliff-side venue!

    One is stunning on you and will have the “wow” factor that you are looking for.  Just lower the slit a bit.   The others are just oh thats nice.  Two is oh thats nice and over  done.  Three is not for outdoor venue.  Four is boring greek costume.
