feet and shoulder stance

Im in a bit of a confusion regarding optimum foot and shoulder position for casting. Ive heard or read about 3 different opinions:
For right handers:
1-Ive read that the best is a "closed stance", standing sideways with right foot and right shoulder foward in relation to target area. For those who like boxing, a lefties fight position.
2- I took a casting lesson, my instructor who casts pretty good recommended the following: standing in a frontal position, shoulders and feet facing the target.
3- My own personal that I find more comfortable: standing sideways but with left foot and left shoulder foward. I actually cast better with number one option, but it feels kind of strange.

any thoughts or opinions regarding this?
