Posted earlier about a bright pink dress for my work Xmas do, but decided to follow advice and find something else. So I went late night shopping and couldn't choose between three dresses so I bought them all and will return two of them once I've made up my mind. Please tell me your favorites and help me choose!

I'm 38, 5'4" and the do is dinner and dance in a hotel. Hope the links work:,default,pd.html,default,pd.html

No 2 for me.

CheddarGorgeous Wed 14-Dec-16 22:33:03

Definitely number 3.

DelphiniumBlue Wed 14-Dec-16 22:33:09

I llike the first one, it's way more sophisticated than the other 2, especially if you've got a fairly toned figure.

CheddarGorgeous Wed 14-Dec-16 22:33:46

grin so that's a consensus OP!

Justmuddlingalong Wed 14-Dec-16 22:34:19

That's that sorted, then! fgrin

RebelandaStunner Wed 14-Dec-16 22:36:32

I like no2 best, though no1 is nice too.
No3 link isn't working for me though

OuchLegoHurts Wed 14-Dec-16 22:37:36

2 or 3 but I think I prefer 3 for a party

minisausage Wed 14-Dec-16 22:40:14

2 or 3. But 3 if it's a party party

29redshoes Wed 14-Dec-16 22:42:04

I like them all OP! If it were me I'd go with the first. Depends what suits your figure best though. Sorry that's probably not very helpful fgrin

1 fo sho

I think as you are quite short two or three, I think three is the best, personally I'd go for no 1, but I'm five foot eight, size ten, and the other two would look better on more petite women I think. As you're five foot four, I think they would suit you better.

1 or 2.

2 if you'll be dancing a lot.

gettingtherequickly Wed 14-Dec-16 22:49:23

1st for me

Boolovessulley Wed 14-Dec-16 22:51:39

The 3rd link isn't working for me either so I prefer no 1 out of the other 2 .

littlecupcake Wed 14-Dec-16 22:51:50

Sorry, the links weren't all clicky, let alone short clicky ones!

Well, I'm glad your opinions were as divided as mine! At least nobody said none of them grin

There will be dancing, I hate dancing on my own but I'm a strictly wannabe and love dancing with a partner! So number three probably ticks that box but sadly wouldn't really be necessary

Number two is nice as well and is fairly flattering. I'm just worried about the length, it's very short! DH liked it so alarm bells immediately started ringing

I like the first one, it's probably the most interesting, but I do get bloated and I'd worry about a food baby!

Keep your opinions coming please! fsmile

Trying again with link for number three:

Justmuddlingalong Wed 14-Dec-16 22:56:59

Why not post pictures with them on, when they arrive. Maybe then there'll be clear winner. The favourites are very mixed just now.

RebelandaStunner Wed 14-Dec-16 22:59:41

Now I can see no3, I would probably go for that.
Whatever you choose I don't think you can go wrong tbh.

TheWoodlander Wed 14-Dec-16 23:01:47

They're all really nice dresses OP, so wear choose the one that looks best on you, or that you feel most comfortable in.

fat lot of use I am grin

McCunty Wed 14-Dec-16 23:03:28

No 3 it's lovely

littlecupcake Wed 14-Dec-16 23:04:48

DH has got photos of me trying them on but they're on his phone and he's snoring like a train asleep. I'll ask him to send them in the morning and I'll post them up.

FauxFox Wed 14-Dec-16 23:06:06

Three definitely - gorgeous!

DragonitesRule Wed 14-Dec-16 23:06:46

1 is really lovely

Helloooooitsme Wed 14-Dec-16 23:07:50
