    It’s interesting that you say #4 does nothing for your figure, because I think you look stunning in it! But now you know how you feel about styles of dresses – I think it sounds like you want to go down the fit and flare/mermaid route, and they’re going to look fantastic on you! πŸ™‚  Happy dress hunting!

    @pengoala:  I agree.

    I LOVE dress #4 on you! You look stunning and the dress looks like it was made for you.

    That dress is by far and away my favorite.

    That said, the mermaid dresses look fantastic on you as well. You have a great figure. You will look awesome in whatever you choose.

    There’s one piece of advice I would like to give you. Don’t pick a dress just becuase the sample fits you the best (close to your size) You need to look past the large sizing and remember that details can be changed like the corset/zipper and neckline. Some designers will even allow you to add metres to a train. If there is something you don’t quiet like, mention it and ask what can be done before you disregard the dress all together.

    One last piece of advice, don’t ever buy a dress the day you tried it on, as exciting as it is and I know how easy it is to get catch up in the moment, walk away and go back the following week with a clear head and retry it on. I tried on alot of gowns and there were a few I could of purchased that day but when i went back the following week I was surprised that I would have made a mistake. When you see alot in one day the details can start to merge together.

    Happy shopping.

    Oh and dress 4 is my fav on you hands down.

    I think #4 is super pretty on you as well, but if it isn’t “you”, don’t get it.

    Enjoy dress shopping!! It is so much fun πŸ™‚

    Once #4 is fitted to your curve it will look amazing! I have never seen that dress before it must not be on the website.  You have inspired me to go to David’s Bridal!
