    Honestly, they are both gorgeous! You look great in both of them. Go with which dress you love more!

    I love the first one. It makes your waist look absolutely teeny.

    Tough call! I’ll give you my honest feedback. 

    I agree that as is, Dress 1 looks the best right now. It’s ultra flattering, and it’s beautiful. Is it Justin Alexander 8627? It’s definitely a less unique style, but it’s no less gorgeous on you. 

    However, I know exactly how you feel about having straps (it was one of my requirements). I get why you are leaning towards dress 2. That said, your boobs look a LOT bigger in this dress, and I feel like it’s a bit overwhelming. I think this issue would be easily fixed by alterations, and if you manage to lose even more weight though. Also, I like the difference in the fabric colors. 

    I know I didn’t give you a definitive answer, but I feel like you’re going to have to go with your gut on this one. Honestly, I think you can’t go wrong with either though.

    I didn’t see your previous posts but I must say I am a fan of dress #1. The pictures of the back of the dress made me say “wow!!” Congrats on your weight loss!

    I also like the idea of the slightly darker lining underneath the lace- I’m thinking of doing the same thing 🙂

    I like looking at dresses with polls without reading post to pick which one looks better ( in case you mention something that may influence) so number 1 is best looking and most flattering:) now I will go read

    Edit- its not just the weight difference- I think its the neckline that’s more flattering 🙂

    @Future_Mrs_C25978:  Yeah, dress 1 was one of my top contenders, and everyone who saw a picture of it LOVED it. But at the end of the day, I didn’t think it was “me” so I got another dress.

    I like dress 1. I agree with pp that the neckline is way more flattering and it makes your waist look awesome. The straps and neckline on the second one give me a bit of a matronly vibe and I feel like they crowd you. I like the darker underlay idea as well.

    I’ll be honest, I quite prefer dress one. I think dress two is beautiful and I like the straps, but it makes you look more broad-shouldered than you are. Your figure is so pretty in the first option.

    @Future_Mrs_C25978:  You look amazing in both!!!! I love the sleeves on the second one. I also think the slightly darker underlay looks great as well! Gorgeous.

    @Future_Mrs_C25978:  Oh yeah, that’s probably a factor. I’m guessing most of the fit problems will be non existent once you have the dress in your size and with alterations…but that’s obviously a risk since you have to buy the dress to know for sure.
