    Liked #3 last time & still do, but there is something about #2 that I love.  So I voted for #2.

    Andreacbooth:  

    Like everyone’s been saying, you really can wear any of these dresses – you look stunning in all of them!! Not surprising, given your figure, but damn girl… no wonder it’s such a hard choice! Anyways, instead of just picking one, I thought I’d give you my feedback/thoughts on each one individually… Obviously, this is just one person’s opinion, so don’t let me affect what you want if I don’t like one you love!

     

    Dress #1 (boat neck lace) = Very classy, elegant, and timeless. Not as much sexy (which you said you also wanted), but it gives you nice smooth curves and looks very pretty on you! The neckline is so gorgeous and stunning – it draws the eyes right to it. The bottom does seem a little ‘stiff’ compared to some of the others. This is probably my 2nd or 3rd favorite.

     

    Dress #2 (silver cap sleeves and belt) = Looks like a red carpet dress, but maybe not a wedding dress. Love the neckline – so unique! Definitely elegant, but I don’t think it’ll be timeless. The sleeves also remind me of wings, or sea urchins… hm.

     

    Dress #3 (v-neck lace with thin belt) = If you want to emphasize your hips, this one does that very well! It’s definitely classy and elegant, and has the sexy aspect to it because of the prominent hips and the neckline. My one gripe about this dress is that the waist-to-hip transition is very sharp. I like the smooth curves that many of the other dresses give you. This one feels like a sharp angle where your rib cage/waist meets the start of your hips. One of my top dresses, but the sharp waist transition bothers me too much to call this my favorite. I’d probably rank this 2nd or 3rd.

     

    Dress #4 (sweetheart lace with wide belt) = Very classy, elegant, and sweet-sexy. I’m loving the proportions of this one. The cap sleeves balance out your prominent hips (unlike Dress #3) and give you a really pretty pin-up shape. The sweetheart neckline is just the right amount of curve, and dips low enough to be sexy without going overboard. The wide band at your waist emphasizes your tiny size and is very figure-flattering. This is hard to explain, but it made me feel like if I were wearing it, my fiancé’s hands would immediately gravitate toward that wide band and he’d wrap his hands around my waist any chance he got, haha. Finally, I like the softer, more floaty bottom (compare to my complaint about #1’s stiffness). This is my favorite!

     

    Dress #5 (sweetheart with illusion embroidery caps) = The lace sleeves on the illusion neckline remind me of vines climbing toward your neckline, like your dress is going to strangle you. I also think the illusion netting over your chest might make your skin look a weird color in some photos. But, I love the softness of the bottom of the dress, and the gorgeous beadwork/lace all over the dress. This doesn’t rank in my top favorites, but it does have stuff going for it!

     

    Dress #6 (waterfall back dress) = Too plain for your gorgeous figure. If you cover up the dress from your waist-down, it looks like a tank top. The waterfall back is gorgeous and the smooth silky fabric is so clean and classy, but the cut ruins it for me. The front of the dress is just too plain to be either elegant or sexy. I can see where this dress is going, but it would need the neckline of dress #2 (minus the cap sleeves) to “hit home” for me.

     

    Dress #7 (beaded long sleeves) = This reminds me of a fancy mother-of-the-bride dress, especially if it were in a different color. The extensive beading/lace on the long sleeves distracts from your curves. Your hips look lost in this dress, and since your fiancé loves your hips, I wouldn’t go with a dress that distracts from them! I’m also not really getting elegant or timeless vibes, nor any sexy vibes… Just “that’s a nice dress” and then you see the others and think “nope this dress isn’t doing anything for her.” This is the only one I’d be truly sad to hear you picked!

     

    Dress #8 (thin belt with bow) = In my opinion, this is a less-pretty version of #4. I liked the delicate sleeves in #4 and how they were slightly see-through. The sleeves in this one are opaque. I’d really have to see it on you to get a good feel for it, because the “official” photos almost never capture the right feeling of a dress, but I think this one isn’t going to beat the others. It seems more nondescript than the others.

    Justin Alexander 8727 is what I was picturing as a (IMO improved) combination of #2 and #6:

    Dress 2 is so gorgeous and unique I had to vote for it. I swear only about 2% of women could *possibly* pull that off! BUT I’ll admit U look beautiful in dress 3 also. The rest are meh and much more matronly IMO.

    I vote for dress 3. You have a nice neckline you need to show it off.
