OK! You ladies have been sooooo helpful over the past few days and I have been so confused as to which dress I should buy. I posted pics of myself yesterday, and got an overwhelming response toward one dress. HOWEVER, one very helpful bee also recommended another dress and now I am torn!! I can’t try on the second dress as it isn’t available in stores, however I could easily order it and it’s not pricy. Here is a link to my prior question where you can find my pic in the Allure 9007 dress.
Which do you think is more beautiful? I am 5’2″ and 145lb…Either dress would be ordered in Ivory color.
Here is the Maggie Sottero Sydney dress:

I feel like the Maggie Sottero makes the model look longer and taller, and the Allure with the pickups and bubble hem kind of cut the model off. They are both gorgeous, but since you are 5’2, I think the Maggie would be better for your frame since it will make you look longers and taller!

I voted for dress two because I’m not too fond of the pickups on dress one.

I like the Maggie. I don’t like pickups in general.

I am not a huge fan of pickups but the picture of you in that dress from your other thread is lovely. That dress looked great on you. I really love this new allure you posted, but I’d have to see you in it to be sure.

have you tried on mermaid dresses? I’m also 5’2″ and think there is no way they work on someone short. By the time the dress reaches the mermaid part there is no more room on the body.

I’m not really a fan of either style or material, but I like the 2nd one better than the 1st,

i picked the allure on your other poll but with this new dress in the running, i think i change my mind to the maggie. i think it will make you look taller. i would have to see it on you though.

Thanks everyone. Apparently the maggie dress is in their new 2013 collection and not available in stores yet. However, there will be a trunk show this week in nyc as my luck would have it. I’m really hopimg they have that dress for me to try on and compare to the allure dress. We’ll see! Thanks for your opinions!

I’m not a pickup fan, so dress #2 gets my vote!

@joanna329: Well you know which one I pick! 🙂
But I think you should choose the Maggie in champagne, like in the picture. I think it would look great on your skin tones.
Hopefully you do get to try it on at the trunk show!

@joanna329: I love the 2nd dress. Both dresses have elements of my dress that I wore…..my dress looks like a combo of the both of them but more like the Maggie! I love the Maggie!!

#2, hands down! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Maggie! Her dresses are amazing and gorgeous and timeless and beautiful.
Also, (and I mean absolutely no offense to anyone) I really hate pickups.
