I think my fave style/dress itself is the paisley except I don't really like the print.

I dont like the style of the split front one. The sleeves on the leaf print look more flattering than the animal print. However leaf print isn't stretch like the others, not sure if that matters.

Def not 3 and 4. Probably no 1 out of all of those, but I don't really like any of them tbh.

I like 1 and 4 best. Don't like the animal print one, the split one is an evening dress and unless the fabric is amazing it could look a bit cheap irl.

Although having watched the catwalk view I think they all might 'bag' unflatteringly on the tummy, it's the pleats at the waist...what do you think?

The properly body con ones like this and this look better if you've got the figure imo.

How about this one ? Or this ?

I'm a big girl so can't get away with body con . I had a wiggle dress ages ago and really loved the shape of it I have a big tummy and found it flattering .

This is for a March wedding so just trying to get something in smile

lovely dresses - 1,4 and the last 2.
depends what size you are as that model is verrrrrrry slim!
the last one is only £19 but sold out in my size.

In that case I think the butterfly one you just posted is the best - gorgeous patten, flattering colours, you will look lovely smile

Personally I like 4 (green paisley) and 6 (the last one) but that's because I'm thinking about the colours and what would suit me best. It really depends on your own colouring.

The only one I don't like at all is 2 because I think a wiggle shape plus split plus red is a bit too much.

Thanks all smile

I think I have it narrowed down to green Paisley and navy butterfly .

I really like the £19 one too but I think it might be the price I like grin
