    Default Please help me choose a dress!!!!

    I am going to my sisters wedding..
    yay...

    anyway, she has asked us to choose a dress and we have to wear it in a certain colour.

    I am not a skinny girl and need a dress that will look nice..the wedding is on a beach in Thailand. It will be hot.

    so these are my choices... if you look at the pics of the first one, it will get to a pick of colours and the colour will be L 148

    So first dress choice:

    and my fave:

    I like yours and your sister's choice, as I find the other 3 a little too casual, even for a beach wedding. If I did wear those ones, I would have to jazz them up with a thick belt, some costume jewellery or a fascinator in my hair.

    I think my top pick would be your sister's choice, but I am only thinking of what 'I' would wear as I don't know your height or figure etc.

    ETA: Why do you have to have a particular colour, is that what your sister wants, as the 'Watermelon' looking colour would be a hard colour for most people to wear/pull off.

    Hmm I'm no good at this sort of stuff but I like the first link best (I'm a larger woman).

    Eta the only one I really don't like is the one your sister picked

    I like the first one, and your favourite, although I find long dresses can be the difference between hot and sticky and uncomfortable and just hot.

    Sadly for your sis, I don't like her pick.
    I think it would be the least flattering style. I think the first would be most flattering on my shape. Maybe you should go shopping and try on dresses in those styles to see what suits your body?

    If really like your choice but if it's a beach wedding I'd stick to shorter so your sisters choice is best

    I like the first one, and the one you chose.

    Your sister's choice is not nice, and would not be flattering on a larger figure... it's not even flattering on the model.

    Definitely number two or the last one. Neither of these dresses cut you off at the waist so should look very flattering! I think you should go for a canary yellow. Gorgeous happy summer colour or tortoise.

    I'd go number 1. Love the colour and it would be flattering.

    If you aren't thin then no to off the shoulder dresses, or shorter dresses unless your calves are thin. Mine aren't boo. The maxi dress is nice but unless you have impeccable boobs then I wouldn't attempt it.
