@beb108: Its really hard to judge without seeing you in the dresses. I would try on similar dress shapes by the same designer to figure out if you like the dress. I bought my dress used, so I couldn’t try it on before hand. I tried dresses by the same designer that were similar before I bought it and found myself wishing it was more like my dream dress, which is how I knew it was the right dress for me.
If you have a larger chest you might like the second one more because it seems like it covers more, and it has straps so you might be able to wear a regular bra. Personally I like the skirt of the second one better (but probably because its like the skirt of my dress).
ETA: If you like the top of the first one, and the bottom of the second one, you could probably remove the straps and alter the neckline to make it like the top of the first one. Thus combining the dresses.

Love the skirt of the first one, but love the straps on the second. Both are beautiful!

ok thanks for your suggestions and thoughts! I will go and try similiar dresses from the same designer, I love them both, I just dont want to order one of them and when it comes I dont like it–the shop im ordering from charges $100 for the shipping price so if I dont like it im out 100 dollars. I guess I might as well just do it though.

I tried on both, and in my opinion they FIT very differenty.
I didn’t care for the way 1857 fit me at all, but someone on here just bought it and it’s STUNNING on her. I don’t know if it’s something to do with the skirt fabric or what, but 1857 was one of the least favorites that I tried on and I fully expected to be torn between the same two dresses.
However, I got 1855 and I love it, so that’s my vote. It fits me great, isn’t as heavy as I expected, and I love the texture of the skirt.
Good luck. I know of a few places in the Michigan/Ohio area that have 1855 at least.

I just purchased 1855 and it was love at first sight. I had also liked 1857 but the bridal shop I went to didnt carry it, so i wasnt able to compare the two dresses. In this picture I’m not wearing the original belt the dress comes with (the bridal shop couldnt find it) but it will come with the dress I ordered.

I like the first dress better but it’s hard to say without seeing them on you.

Love the first one! Especially in real life! Makes me a little sad I’ve already decided on my own dress;)

@beb108: Thank you, I really love it! I hope I feel the same way about it in a few months when it arrives *biting nails* Which dress did you decide on?
