    Don’t know what you mean by halfway pretty, you look beautiful in both. If you like the sleeves better than go with that. To me, it is more unique and is very pretty. I’m generally not a big fan of strapless either

    I felt the same way. Non strapless is tough to find.   that said, I think you look amazing in that first dress! Like seriously great! And I’m not fond of that last dress at all. It looks matronly to me.  i guess id say don’t be afraid to try strapless, you might like it more than you thought. BUT you also gave to be comfortable… Straps would be ok too!

    I like the first dress on you, just the way it is. And your shoulders look slender in it.  I also think the back of the 3/4 sleeve dress is lovely.  But I wish the front was different – the flowers going up your chest age the dress.  I dislike the strapless full skirt on you.

    The 3/4 sleve dress looks divine! I also count myself as someone uncomfortable with all the upper body exposure that  a strapless dress offers. Love them on other people but just not for me.

    I’ve ended up with a strapless dress after all, but it was a long journey to it and I started in the same boat as you (didn’t look bad, I just didn’t feel like myself). There’s lots of pretty sleeves out there, they’re just harder to find than strapless. Try something with cap sleeves maybe, those illusion 3/4 length ones don’t do anything for you. Once you start to narrow down what you like and looks good on you, you’ll stop feeling like you’re playing dress up, promise ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think both dresses look good on you. 

    i would go to my next appointment with an open mind. Ask the sales lady for some advice too. Ask her what she thinks would look good on your body type. 

    Good luck finding the one!

    I think the strapless looks more slimming on you, at least in these pictures. The 3/4 sleeves are pretty, but I do think they sort of have a widening effect.

    You look great in both dresses!! I agree that going to your next appointment with an open mind and asking for advice might help.  Also, you may be able to find a strapless dress that you can get straps or sleeves added to.

    Could you buy a strapless dress and add a topper or cap sleeves or straps? If you are really uncomfortable then buy a dress with straps. You will have enough stress with wedding planning without worrying about your dress.

    You look beautiful I’m both dresses but I personally prefer the strapless dress. It’s very flattering and shows off your gorgeous figure

    Sorry, but I love  you in that last  dress –  the strapless big skirted one! But of course if you feel odd in such a dress then it’s not for you . Pity though,  you look great in it.

    I am tbh, not very keen on either  of the first two . They look  a bit matronly. The illusion part on the second comes  too high maybe ? Not flattering anyway , and I am usually a fan of sleeves or straps, just not that one.
