Tried on Dresses

I tried on dresses last weekend and it didn’t go as hoped. I thought it would find someone I loved and knew it would be the one but it was not the case. My budget for dresses is small (less than $500). Here on my options please nicely weigh in! I know my fiancé loves when I “show off the girls” so I do like something with some sex appeal. Thanks ladies!

This I think is the best picture quality of them all so it’s hard to compare but I think it makes my back look falling out. I thought front was beautiful and fitting but it was heavy and a bit hard to move for dancing and not sure it fits in with an outdoor wedding?

I need some shapewear and a little more covering I think in the front and possible belt?

Thanks for your input ladies!

    I like the third dress the best, but if you don't love any of them I would keep looking because you don't want to settle.

    I agree with the previous comments, I like the third dress best! However, it's your opinion that matters most. If you don't love it, I would keep looking at different dress shops to see what else you can find.

    I agree with Veronica - I like the 3rd dress the best but don't settle if you don't love it! Go out again and try on more and if you find there's one you previously tried on that you compare all other dresses to then you'll have your answer on which dress is THE dress!

    I love the third one too! It's really flattering on you and shows off some cleavage without being over the top. It also looks like it would be the comfiest to move around in. But I agree with Veronica in that you shouldn't feel like you have to settle. I bet if you keep looking around a bit more you could find something you love even more!

    Another vote for the 3rd one. You look amazing in it! But only buy if you feel good in it. Not everyone gets "the one" moment(you know tears and all). I didn't really either, but as long as you love it/ how you feel in it and feel like its your style thats what counts. Make sure its comfortable as you wear it all day!

    #3 all the way! Sexy and bridal romantic. You can ask a seamstress about replacing the spaghetti straps with wider ones because the skinny straps might be really comfortable thanks to your blessings on top.

    The third dress is my favorite. However, I think you should keep looking. It doesn’t sound like you love any of these dresses, and you should definitely love your wedding dress! I had to go to 6 different places before I found “the one”.

    I second a lot of the gals. The third dress is so lovely on you. The cut is very flattering and looks comfortable - which I highly value! You are going to be in it for a long time on your wedding day, so you don't to be uncomfortable.

    I would like 3, except that without and straps for support, the bodice drags down to granny bosoms, and the waist looks larger. 4 is best, with the halter support keeping your bust up where it belongs, and smoothing your now noticeable waist. ..........
    I love the asymmetrical dress with the ruching, # 1. But there is too much volume in the skirt. Either a fit and flare with little flare, or a sheath, with that beautiful ruching, would be dynamite on you. Maybe an evening gown for your honeymoon?

    #1 If this asymmetrical sheath could have the skirt reduced to like this, it would be outsanding front and back. Only alter the skirt portion, not upper body. This was the first asym. ruched sheath I saw.

    I also like #3 the best, but if you aren't in love with any of them, I would suggest you keep searching. You want to feel beautiful and confident on your wedding day in a dress that you absolutely love!

    I definitely like the 2nd dress the best! It looks great on you and has that bit of sex appeal it sounds like your fiancé likes.

    I also love the 3rd one on you! It’s super flattering and you look great! Like others have said though, don’t feel pressured to settle and do explore more options if you don’t really like any of them.
