Am I the only one that stays up til crazy a.m., worries and changes her mind every 2 seconds, and sends tonnes of messages to the bridal boutique about dresses??
OK – i am deliberating between naomi neoh dresses…. dita/marianne – need sleeve modification or snowdrop. Rather than fuff around with sleeves… I think i’ve decided to go for snowdrop…. am i making a mistake?? I’m going to miss the lace…. I will try and ask if they can make snowdrop in blush…also…
The shop can make small modifications for me if I want dita/marianne with different sleeves etc… My favourite is actually Dita – without the sleeves, (but i’m gonna have to lose weight before I am confident enough to wear that…. but i need to make my dress choice now and not sure about being able to lose THAT much weight !
Please tell me i’m making the right choice choosing snowdrop???
this is snowdrop
Am I making the right choice ladies??
This is marianne…with customisable sleeves… can’t even picture how the off the shoulder one will look like…but think the other sleeve looks….not very good
this is dita..but i need sleeves and detachable sleeves don’t look that good…..

I think you are missing a photo? But from the photos I can see, I think the dita is the best on you. It gives you a lovely shape. You do not need sleeves! You look great!!

The first one really looks amazing! It’s really unique and flattering and ‘flows’ well (the other two look too much like separate bodices/skirts to me)

@glimmerybride: Okay, that’s cool. Couldn’t tell what you look like, by the way..=)
I like the last dress, but I don’t know if it’s the same one in the last picture. It looks like the top is different. I like the neckline being not a sweetheart. So I like the “Dita”.

Girl, shut up your arms look fine. These dresses are making you look older than you are!
BUT I do think “Marianne” is very classy and beautiful and shows off your teeny tiny waist!

@glimmerybride: Oh girl, there is nothing wrong with your arms! I think strapless actually makes your arms look thinner and it draws less attention of them.
But if you’re dead set on sleeves, I think the snowflake looks really good on you. I also love Dita though. Maybe get a bolero instead of detachable sleeves?

Haha, i see i’m not the only one undecided about dresses! Sigh. I’m split in three!

Ahh love these dresses! They are all three gorgeous! I love the skirts on them.. So flowy!
i really do like the first one on you the rouching is really pretty and flattering. I love lace and all three are beautiful so you can’t go wrong… And I don’t think you have anything to worry about with your arms. You look amazing!!!

I like Dita without sleeves. I think you’re the only one who thinks there’s a problem with your arms. I think the sleeves make all those dresses look sort of frumpy.

Yes, I agree the sleeves make it look frumpy. THERE’S the word, frumpy!! I’ve been trying to tell my mum it looks bad but couldn’t find the right word.. Although…. Marianne’s frumpy sleeve is growing on me the longer i look at it ! Lol
Dita’s reversible bolero is 500 pounds plus can’t see the chest area where I want to wear a necklace also…

@peachacid: The last dress is same as the one above it, I just bent down the triangular lace bits…

It seems like the dresses are customisable in some way so could they customise the first one? Because it is the one that I think looks best on your shape – I mean holy cow look at that tiny waist. The other two dresses are also flattering, but the transition from the bodice to the skirt is sort of disjointed in both of them, and mean they don’t show off your waist as well as #1 does.
But if you are wanting to hide your arms, off-the-shoulder sleeves and the neckline of #1 probably isn’t the way to do it. The straps being in that position probably actually draw attention to the arms.
An off-the-shoulder neckline or strapless dress makes the eye look at everything above the neckline, including the shoulders. Ideally you want to narrow that focus to the centre of the bust and neck, away from the shoulders and arms. I think the best option if you want to hide your arms would be the v-neck of the second dress with the straps of the last picture you posted.
So I’m wondering if you could choose #1, but nix the off-the-shoulder sleeves, make the neckline a plunging v-neck like in #2, and add lace straps like in #3, would it then work for you? Maybe even add some lace appliques to the edges of the skirt. I can’t imagine it would be difficult to do.
Because seriously, dress #1 shows off your body fantastically well and if it’s just the neckline/arms issue that’s a problem, that’s fixeable.

Okay, I know I just put a plug in for #1 but if #3 is the one that you love I think you should go for it. Again, though, judging by how fantastic your boobs look in #2, I think you should go for a v-neck with dress #3 – no sleeves, just lace straps, maybe an inch wide. That way people will be looking at your boobs (and necklace) and won’t even notice your arms. Don’t worry about the sleeves. Seriously you don’t need them.
