    @calisunshine3404:  They both look great, but there’s something about the 2nd dress that makes me think it suits you better. What is the dress? It’s lovely.

    @calisunshine3404:  They are so very similar, i could see why you would have difficulty picking one. I would go with dress #2 especially if you plan on doing a sash/belt. If not #1 has a sash that I think is the most flattering feature. 

    I think #2 with out a belt/sash does not define your waist as well as, #1 does because it has a sash.. BUT I think #2 with a sash/belt would be the best choice. I know you were looking at just shape, but a sash/belt plays a huge role in the way a dress’s shape is percieved.

    We have the same body type sweetie! You look gorgeous in both of them! #1 is my favourite though,  but I think it would be more flattering if you had a petticoat or hoop underneath to give it a little bit of volume at the bottom. I have narrow hips and not much of a waist so I found adding a little bit to the bottom helped give me a shape. The first one gives you a longer torso as well Smile

    They’re both A-line, so the shape of the dress is the same.  The only difference is the neckline.  I always lean towards sweetheart necklines because I think they’re flattering on everyone.

    @calisunshine3404:   I didn’t vote because I prefer the slimmer A line of the first dress but the sweetheart neckline of the second dress.

    They are both gorgeous! I like the second one better because it gives you waist a little bit more definition… it would probably be even better with a belt or sash of some sort!
