Well, I’ve been shopping for the past two days, and these three were at the top of the list from these trips. I would love some input. I know I love the shape of each of these dresses, but I can’t say I absolutely love anything from looking at the photos. When I had them on in the salons, I felt beautiful and glamorous and all that good stuff, but when I look at the pictures, I’m just disappointed. Maybe your non-biased opinions will help?
Dress #1 – Martina Liana 380. I really liked this one yesterday; thought it might be “it” until I tried on more today.
Dress #2 – Casablanca. Felt like a movie star in this one.
Dress #3 – Marisa 815. I still cannot believe how light and airy it was. I tried on other Marisas, but this one was hands down the best on me and the most flattering.

This needs a poll.
I love 3 in general. It is one of my favorite dresses ever. It isn’t pinned too well on you though, so I’m not sure what it is doing for your figure. So, I guess I vote 2. I am certainly underwhelmed by 1.

This definitely needs a poll! You should try on some Maggies. I feel llike they dominate in the dress style you’re going for.

They are all beautiful and you look great in them all, but I definitely think #1 is the most flattering, you look amazing!

@mrsSonthebeach: Yeah, the Marisa was too small, and there wasn’t much she could do to pin it on top to fit.

Va-Va-Voom! You have a killer figure and I think the overall shape of the dresses you posted is spot on for you.
I like the simplicity and elegance of dress #1 but the abrupt transition to the skirt seems a bit awkward. Dress #2 seems to have a bit too much going on and it distracts from your hourglass shape.
My favorite is dress #3 because it looks awesome on you; it’s delicate and feminine while still looking classic and elegant. And because you mentioned that it’s light and airy, which is important to consider for a July wedding. Also, if you have it altered to be more of a fit-and-flare shape, it would be a showstopper.
