    poikl :  Any dress with a clear divide between the torso and skirt portions, such as the ones youve posted with the nude bodice sections, is likely to make you look disproportionate, as the divide will not fall where it is designed to on a taller person

    The waist fell far too low on you in the one you posted with the nude top. You would need fairly significant alterations to get it to sit higher, and with the details on the bodice it could ruin the floral pattern.

    I imagine you would find a similar problem with the one you just posted, unless they sell it in petite.

    Of the styles shown the ones that flatter your body the most , not necessarily in order, are the double strap (which still looks a bit snug in the hips), the high low and the chiffon. I also like the nude lace top. But a larger size would be better and have it taken in in the waist.

    It appears that your hip to waist ratio is high. This translates to needing a larger size. This will allow the dress to flow over your hips better. Of course the dress would need to be taken in at the waist to look fabulous on you. (My hip to waist ratio is also high and it makes it problematic to buy clothes that fit in bottom with my small waist. )

    If you look at the photos the bunching at the hip line means that portion of the dress is too small for you.

    All the styles are very different and I am wondering what style is YOUR favorite. After you choose the style you like then you can work on having it tailored to fit you perfectly.

    I hope this helps. Best of luck.

    poikl :  You might want to consider an above the knee or knee length dress; there are may beautiful alternatives available. Just as an example:

    I love Dress #3, but also understand that it would be the most difficult to hike in. I also like Dress #5, if you are concerned about hiking. It looks really good on you, while still giving you some room to move around in. I personally, don’t like the new dress because I think you will have just as much of a problem of it cutting you off in the wrong spot.

    l love the last but one with the bateau neckline and it really looks great on you. . The last one is nice and you look good in it, but, like most of them, it is a constricting style and l am not sure why you keep selecting this style given the venue and plan for your wedding…

    Claroquesi’s suggestions ( as ever) are great. I think you would look really good in that fullskirted one.

    This latest one is gorgeous!! Overall I like it the best, but still love the first one too. The first one seems more practical since it doesn’t really touch the ground. If the small train on this one isn’t going to be an issue, then definitely this is THE one!

    poikl :  I looove this on you!!! I think it’s the most flattering out of what you’ve posted, plus i just like it best. You can get a bustle put on to keep it up if needed. I say just get it if you love it. I also think it ‘goes’ with what you have planned. The flowers and simple silhouette are prefect.

    Cool idea to do the hike 🙂 we thought about doing something like that, but decided on a very small ceremony at red rock canyon park outside Vegas. So we’ll be in the middle of the desert, but i still chose a dress with train. I say go for whatever you like!

    I have a background in fashion.  And one of things you first learn is “Fit and Fabric” far outweighs style.  Option 3 is much more luxurious in weight and fabric, your body looks seamless – pefectly balanced and slim.  The decollatage neck area is magnificent and the style unique — never saw this before.  This is a great dress because it has a timeless, vintage feel with a modern flair and boho chic feel.  When you look at your wedding photos 20 years from now, you will be thrilled at how fabulous you looked on your wedding day.

    girrrrrrrrrrl YES the latest one you posted is definitely it!! I am only about 5’2″ so I understand the whole length issue, PLUS I had an outdoor elopement with only parents invited and my dress had a similar look to yours with being all lace and slightly fitted but flowy at bottom. It looked awesome in pics, yours will too! That dress fits you GREAT! Its a good balance of bridal/formal and casual all at the same time.

    poikl :  Oh good – I was going to mention I thought the straps needed shortening. I can’t wait to see your photos!
