    Only the chiffon says “beach” to me.

    I think the chiffon is the most flattering, but the sleeves look very matronly. You could modify them to make them shorter or less “layered”. Or keep looking for a similar chiffon dress with better cap sleeves

    I like the 3rd one the best. Why? Because it gives you more of a shape/curve meaning theres more of a waist and hips contrast compared to the first 2. The first 2 doesn’t give you much shape between the waist and the hips. It just looks kinda straight. BuzzedBumblingBee :

    socalgirl1689 :  I agree with you!~ OP_-The way the chiffon dress shows off your waist is the  most flattering. The other two look a little boxy in the midsection. Looks like you have some mixed reviews about the chiffon dress, particularly the sleeves. I like them but if you aren’t completely sure… you can always continue your search, but do look for the same silhouette as the chiffon dress. I think you’ve picked a winner there!

    I voted #3 it fits your body best, whereas the first 2 are kinda boxy in my opinion. I have larger breasts and curves as well and thought I wanted a mermaid dress until I tried them on and they totally ruined my curves! I went for what I call a toned down ball gown as I loved how it cinched my waist!

    I vote for the chiffon! It’s definitely the only one that looks like it would belong on a beach, but it also wouldn’t look out of place at an indoor reception. I actually like the sleeves and think they stop the chiffon dress from feeling too simple! I tend to like kind of vintage details though.

    Oh the third by far, it is light and flowy but not completely beach casual . You look lovely and free in it , where l thought the first two looked somehow more constraining. 
    Perhaps lose the top layer of the sleeves? They are quite voluminous , tho very pretty .

    The third is stunning, easy to wear,  and will photograph brilliantly. Also suits your figure.

    i like the chiffon the best, but not a fan of the sleeves, i feel like they could be altered into something much more flattering.

    BuzzedBumblingBee :  So glad you ordered the chiffon one – you look stunning in it!

    For what it’s worth, I’ve never seen a mummy or ghost with curves and cleavage that good 😉

    BuzzedBumblingBee :  I think your mum is wrong about the chiffon dress, the sleeves are very flattering on you and the dress is light and romantic Xx

    Isn’t it funny how people see things differently. I see a beautiful flowing gown and your mother sees a toga! Please post your dress and bolero combo so we can all admire that look.  I really think that all financial considerations aside, you’ve picked a gorgeous dress that looks beautiful on you.  That’s the important bottom line.

    BuzzedBumblingBee :  Hey bee! The chiffon dress looks stunning on you and really flatters your curves. My personal favorite was the lace, but honestly, you rock the heck out of the chiffon gown and I think it will look AMAZE on your wedding day. The fact that you got it on sale makes it even sweeter. Enjoy your dress without regrets, bee!
