Went dress shopping again yesterday by myself so I didn’t get many objective opinions. There are things I love about each dress
Dress #1: I LOVE the dramatic low back and the train (detachable). It is light but still has the fullness on the bottom which I’m looking for. I would like some sparkle on the actually dress though versus just adding a sash. This dress also buttons in the back and is not a corset which I was looking for to suck me in. Also I think it may make me look bustier than I am (not a good thing)
Dress #2: Love the sparkle in the dress and the shape it gives me (corset). It is pictured here with and without straps added. It can be made into a keyhole back or just regular straps. However, this one does not have the dramatic back I was looking for.
Both are gorgeous dresses by Stella York. Opinions please!

I like dress two a lot. With or without the straps I think it looks amazing. I voted for with the straps, because if you have the straps, perhaps you can do a more dramatic back.

They look almost identical to me except for the backs…I guess that means they are not identical, lol. I am not a huge fan of lace, but overall I like the back of the second option better (and the fronts look the same to my untrained eye).

@Lily_of_the_valley: Dress 2 compliments your back better. (In the photo not sure about IRL!)

@MrsPanda99: interesting! They look very different in person to me. The sparkle in dress 2 shows up much more in real life compared to in a photo

@MangoSong: That’s what I was thinking, I’m sure they can make an interesting back when they add the straps to it

@Lily_of_the_valley: I’m not really a dress person…or a girly girl at all. I guess I am not the best one to have an opinion, but I try. I do (surprisingly) know what a corset back is though and I like how they look. That’s why I picked the second dress. I prefer it without straps because the straps looked added rather than like they belong there.

Dress 2 gives you the most incredible shape – very hourglass, and you look perfectly in proportion. Dress 1 is nice but its not making the most of your waist and it makes you look a bit top heavy.
I like the straps with dress 2 as well, I think it balances the whole thing out nicely, and the keyhole back will look lovely.

dress two for sure. You can go either way, with or with out the straps. I would go with out though.

I love dress 2 with the straps! It’s perfect for your figure.

Dress # 2 is beautiful on you. However, I like it both ways…with and without the straps. I know you didn’t ask but I am not a fan of the first veil eiither…I think its too much for dress #1 if you go that route.

I love dress #2 with the straps! I feel like it’s by FAR the most flattering!

Dress 1 is a beautiful design, but dress 2 takes it home 🙂
