    The first looks great! The second, though, looks strange. I can’t put my finger on the why exactly, but it doesn’t look right. It may be a fit issue or the cut of the dress… I’m not sure.

    The first looks great. The second one is not doing your figure justice at all. It’s making your hourglass look like a rectangle. I don’t think the narrowest part of the dress is hitting the narrowest part of your body. It might help to have a crinoline to poof out the bottom of your skirt to balance out your figure, but I still don’t think the dress fits properly.

    The first one is awesome, but the second one just doesn’t look quite right 🙁

    I signed up just to comment 🙂 I think you look great in the first dress. The design of the second dress looks similar to Justin Alexander 8596 (my dress!) and if you look at the Justin Alexander one, the satin waistband isn’t quite as wide. I’m wondering whether it is going too far down on the hips and too high up in the bust area. So rather than pulling in at the waist, it’s covering more of the torso. I would say removing one layer of wrap from the top and one from the bottom might make it better? Love the design though and the back looks great. They are very differnt styles so I guess it depends and what makes you feel pretty and and what look you want to go for 🙂

    I hope that helps & makes sense! xx

    @glitterblingsparklebee:  I agree with Januarybridetobe, if you look at the model picture, while the wrap does begin under her armpit just like your dress it ends several inches above where I guess her hipbone is, but on yours it ends on your hipbone. Removing the bottom layer of the wrap might fix a lot.

    I looove the first dress but I’m not a huge fan of the second one. I agree with a PP about removing the wrap entirely. It completely chops you up and doesn’t do your figure justice. The wrap on the model is narrower I think, or maybe it fits her in a way that makes it look narrower because she’s super tall. Yours is way too wide for your frame and makes your waist look short and thick, which is a shame because you have a lovely figure. I think this dress would look lovely with a sash or a sparkly belt instead of the wrap. Maybe the seamstress who did such a great job making your first dress could find a way to alter it for you?

    The second one doesn’t go down long enough. The satin (or satin-like) material needs another couple folds so it ends on your hips. Should be fairly easy for a dressmaker to add that though? I hope it works out for you 🙂
