I voted for the last one.
#1: love how it fits you from the waist down (you have a great set of hips), but that fluttery v-neck bust is not a flattering design (it gives almost everyone the unfortunate “rocks in socks” look 🙁 so it’s a NO)
#2: proved to me that sleeveless is your silhouette; I like the delicate look of the fabric, especially up top BUT I agree w/the PP who said that split skirt looks like a nightie; I think it’s ~young~ for you, but I think this because it looks like a little girl’s dress (something I’d put on my 7 year old niece); this style is too young for everyone on this site, so…NO
#3: you are working that bias cut charmeuse and I like the embellishmet up top, but that straight-cut strapless eviscerated your boobs and gave you all hips; and I know you have boobs, so this dress is OUT
#4: I really like the sequins, but the shape does nothing for you; it’s a sparkly sack on you (and after seeing how wonderful your figure is, this dress is a NO)
#5: since the entire dress is gorgeous and the fit is fantastic, it’s a YES for me; also, I’m a huge sucker for guipure lace (I don’t see people wearing it very often outside of Nigerian formalwear); I adore the bold, modern pattern of the dress, and combining that with the lovely sleeveless look, this dress is the clear winner to me 😀

@MlleFabuleux: Thank you for your detailed response and I pretty much agree with it all! The only thing I would say is that I would alter the upper part of dress one because it was much too big but I need that size for my hips – very pear shaped!! this is the stock pic of dress one

@Blackie: THE SECOND ONE. Omg, the second one. Your waist looks TINY in it.

@Blackie: You’re welcome. 🙂 That does actually look much better (and I’m pear-shaped too…we have to accomodate those hips!), but I do really like the full sleeveless style on you. The cut of the top almost looks like it’s intended to minimize the shoulders/upper torso, which isn’t as flattering your figure as some of the other silhouettes.

Love the second and the fifth dress!

please choose dress 2! You look great in all these dresses but dress 2 looks amazing on you!

@Blackie: At first, I thought to myself … wow dress number 2 looks beautiful on her. It is a very young looking dress though, not that you couldn’t wear it but I just noticed that. And then I saw the sequin dress and I just thought wow that is so different and unique. The last dress looks great too.
Which ever dress you pick you should go for that neckline. It is perfection and you look so elegant.

Number 1 is amazing from the bust down. If it was sized correctly on top, you would be ravishing.
Number 2 looks more appropriate for a beachy/outdoor setting, not a modern hotel; it looks lovely on you, but too casual for the setting.
Number 3 does not do your boobs justice and it’s a bit too traditional (in my humble opinion).
Number 4 does not flatter your figure at all, but I do love the sparkly fabric.
Nubmer 5 is amazing on you! For a bit more interest, I’d alter the neckline and have it lowered a bit so you show a little more decolletage. I love this fabric!
It’s between 1 and 5 for me. If fitted properly, both would be stunning. Good luck!

I voted for the second one, but now that I know you don’t like it, I’m for the sequin one, with and altered neckline.

So since so many of you liked the second dress that I only tried on to make sure I didn’t like that type of dress as much as I thought, I decided to go back to the store and try on again and get some better pics.
They had a number on the rack and as I searched for my size I noticed that the tiny pearls (hard to see on the photo but they are dotted all over) had fallen off every single one of six dresses there. I asked the lady if she had another one in stock and she said that it had been a real problem with that style and that she didn’t have any more in stock. She did say that they could easily be sewn back on but I wasn’t convinced and anyway what happens if they fall off during my wedding day! So that one is definitely off the list!!
I tried on number four again in a smaller size to see if it looked less like a sequin sack but it didn’t, it just looked like a tight sequin sack and the top was way too big.
I am still loving the ‘Clemence’ dress but need to go to London to try it again and that isn’t for another two weeks.
Also tried the first one on again and clipped up the top and it looked great and then I found a similar one by same designer in silver grey – same bottom slightly different neckline.
So all in all I am spoilt for choice – luckily I have plenty of time but oh so glad I started early!!
