Hi Ladies! New to the boards here! Just wanted some feedback as to which dress looks better on me. I am torn.
or Dress B
The mid portion would not be sheer on B, I would have a panel put in so that the seam doesn’t show,

I also like dress A better!

Sorry if this is too friendly but in the second one it looks like “the girls” are kinda out there, and not usually what one wants at a wedding.

@chasesgirl:I know, unfortunately I am top heavy in that region. I am wearing a bra, which is pushing everything up a little, but I intend to have the neckline raised on B if I go for it, I know what you mean though.

I love Dress 2! I think getting it altered a bit to reign in the girls a smidge would make it perfect. I think a little sassy cleavage is just fine for a wedding dress (just watch a few SYTTD episodes and you will see many women show cleavage– just maybe take it down a notch.) I also love the shoulders and the corset. I think it is very original, too– the first dress is pretty but I have seen so many on the boards that resemble it. In the end they are both stunning– it’s just up to you to decide what style matches your personality best. Good luck!

I really like the first dress. The first one screams of a more traditional wedding style though so if you want something bold I would go with the second dress. The second one might be more appealing to me after you alter it to help keep “the girls” in. It looks like your boobs want to steal your thunder witht the way the dress is now.

I think you look better in dress 2 and yes your girls are out there. If you get it raised it should look really good.

I think if you’re planning to alter the neckline on dress #2 then go for dress #2!
I might be mistaken but dress #2 also looks like it has boning in the corset? If it does, I think the dress could be better without it as it looks very rigid around your torso.
The reason I don’t jump at the first dress is because you have a beautiful curvy figure that I think you can accentuate while still being classy. The placing of the sash, just below your bust does not draw attention to your waist, instead it draws attention to your upper torso where you say you’re top heavy. The very a-line skirt also comes away from your body too soon, you should look at dresses that have a better fit around your hips like dress #2 does.
Now if you look at the torso of dress #2, you’re waist is well defined and you have a cap sleeve, coupled with a skirt more fitted around the hips that flares (kinda between an a-line and trumpet) all of which highlights and frames your best assets, I think this fit is much better for you despite all the cleavage it creates!

I prefer A. I think the second would be a talking point

Is the second one sheer around the torso? If so, I would line it and raise the bust-line. I think 1 would be better if the sash were lower…I have the same problem of being top heavy.
I don’t want to sound like a total snob, but I would keep looking if I were you. These dresses are both pretty, but don’t show off all of your gorgeous curves the right way. You have a lot of time, maybe go to another store and try on some more styles before paying. Just a suggestion–certainly do what you feel is right…it’s your dress!

The second dress in a heartbeat. The first one does nothing for your figure

Thanks for all your opinions. I am leaning toward Dress B minus all the cleavage. Any other thoughts??
