    I think 3 would be my top choice but only if you added a petticoat or something to flare out the skirt so it would have more fullness/structure.

    The illusion crystal sheath does it for me ( 2nd one).  Absolutley perfect on you. Love the shape (which I probably wouldn’t think of as a sheath), the delicate beading, the sheer romance of it and the way it hugs your well proportioned figure to emphasise your tiny waist and pancake flat tummy.  I think you look good in an illuson neckline (not everybody does). The bottom one would be my second pick. I’ll bet you would shine in the Gatsbyish dress.

    Not fond of the thin strapped dresses that seem to make you look all “chest”.

    Your dress search is positivly thrilling. Can’t wait to see what you pick in the end.

    #1! One of my friends wore #2 in her wedding this past May, that I was in. It was beautiful. All of these are.

    You look great in all of them, but I prefer – in order:

    2 – love the beading and neckline. I think it balances out your long torso the best. Adore the beading. Did I mention the beading? Beading.

    Gatsby dress – lost track of what number it was – you had me at the name Gatsby – I like that it’s got the flowiness you like plus the deco beading. This would probably be top if you were actually wearing it.

    Lace and tulle mermaid – again, I like that it breaks up the length of your torso. Like that you get the flowy skirt. The back gives you the edginess you like. But hard to judge without seeing it on you.

    1 – also gorgeous. Sexier than 2 – if that’s what you want. It lost points for me because I’m not sure what underwear you’d wear with it, and also it looks heavier and less flowy – and I know you like flowy. 

    Thin straps – I think it makes your shoulders look too wide. I don’t hate it though.

    Sparkly mermaid – not sure I like how it makes your shoulders look. Don’t like the transition from bodice to skirt either. It makes your waist look ridiculously tiny though.

    V-neck tulle – I love this, but I think you can rule it out. When left to your own devices, you chose mostly fitted dresses. Isn’t that a sign?

    Without seeing you in the other dresses, my vote would be for #1 or #2 with hoop. Both are beautiful on you, and have amazing detail.  You can’t make a wrong choice here!

    I love number one, you look wonderful in it. Much prefer the daintier look of the straps. I’d say it’s the best of the lot.
