    I also voted for the third one, but like the idea of making it a sweetheart neckline – seems like it shouldn’t be too difficult for a seamstress!  🙂

    I think the third one fits your figure best!  It looks absolutely amazing!  But in the end it’s what makes you happy good luck!

    @MUAbride2be:  yep that #3 is flattering, get that altered to a sweetheart neckline and you are good to go. See how flattering dress #1 is with that sweetheart!.

    I am actually seduced by the beauty of #2 but the PP who said the bottom is part of its beauty, it’s not near your face and a waste–well, that is an astute observation. I’ve not seen this dress before and I just love the bodice and bottom of skirt together.

    #3  you look happiest in it, which is most important.  And it flatters you the most.

    I like #3 the best. The dress flatters you the best!

    The 3rd one is best IMO. It seems the most flattering and I love the waist detailing.

    I voted “none of them” but I think I liked 3 the best – the draping and fit of the skirt are perfect for you.

    But I personally think you should avoid strapless altogether because none of them are making your chest area look its best and they don’t look like they fit you properly on top (the first one looks too big and in the other two you’re spilling out a bit – they just look uncomfortable). Though this may be fixed when the dressess are fitted properly, not sure…

    I can tell that you have great boobs, so why not go for a v-neck, crossover or (sleeved) sweetheart neckline? Or the very least- a sweetheart strapless with a bolero jacket? They will fit you better, draw the eyes down and complete the slimming effect that the rest of the dress is achieving. 

    I am a similar shape to you – but my boobs aren’t a nice as yours – and there is no way I would wear a strapless now, after having tried them on.

    So – number 3 with a different neckline is my pick. Probably some sort of crossover v-neck style that continues the draping effect you’ve got going with the skirt, with a few sparkly bits around the bust and shoulders. That would really work for you.

    I said none of them because I honestly think you could find something that flatters you more and is just more wow! You’re a beautiful girl and you should be wearing a dress to match! I definitely think you should look into the links that Clairebbbear sent you especially the Mori Lee! I think you would look killer in that!

    And please don’t feel discouraged! Keep looking, be patient, be daring and wait for that moment when you KNOW that you have found THE dress!
