I like all three dresses (you have fabulous taste), but I said keep looking.
I just don’t think this silhouette suits you. I think there is a more flattering style out there for you and your figure.
Try a dress with a deeper sweetheart or v-neck. You have a short upper torso/clavicle area, and all of these dresses sit really high, so they swallow you up and don’t show off your lovely collarbone/neck very well.
These necklines might be more flattering/elongating:

Thanks for letting me know why you picked to keep looking! And I have to say I agree now that you pointed it out!
I tried on this Sophia Tolli gown that I loved, I just wasn’t able to take a picture of it at the bridal salon, I’m trying to find a place that carries it and will allow photos. This has a deeper sweetheart, so maybe that will help?
I’ve also found this gown online and hoping I can find it in a store to try on.. Same thing has a deeper sweetheart.

You’re welcome. 🙂 I adore both of the dresses you posted (esp. that Tolli). I also think if you went with one of the dresses that you posted before but deepened the sweethearts/necklines on those, then that will also improve things, as well. That being said, dress #2 has a deep enough bustline, it’s just not as stunning as the other two.

@Dixiesgirl: EEK! Number one is the Hartley! I only know because that is my dress that I ordered a month ago 🙂
I had the same concern as you, so I am having the neckline altered into a deep sweetheart. Much more flattering on me.
Go with number 1! it is soooo beautiful and the crystal details will make you sparkle 🙂

@Dixiesgirl: I personally like the third one, but if you’re not in love with any of them, then keep looking!

@Dixiesgirl: Did do you decide on one? Or are you still looking??

LOVE #1 on you! But you do have time, so if you’re not sure then keep looking…just keep #1 as a contender : )

I’m still looking 🙂 Once my semester ends in a few weeks I will be hitting the stores again and hopefully choosing a dress… But I will definately be trying the first dress again!
