    #1 – is more unique, like the vintage feel of it, think the neckline shows off your boobs better, like the train, like the way it fits you on the waist and emphasises your small waist. I dislike the vertical seams on it and not a massive fan of the fabric. though that may just be the lighting in the store. It also looks a bit tight across the belly but I think that can be fixed with alterations and better underwear. 

     

    #2 – a very flattering shape on you, also emphasises your small waist, like the way the pattern is arranged on the bodice and skirt. Don’t like the neckline as much and also not sure what the dress is doing across the lower abdomen, it looks a bit scrunched up. I can’t tell whether it’s a fit thing or whether you’d benefit from a slightly higher waistline. I also think the beading patten may be slightly dated.

     

    I would add that the photo for #2 may make you look skinnier because the way your hair is falling across the sides of your dress (gorgeous hair by the way!)

     

    So all things considered I voted for #1, but I expect most people to vote for #2 as it is a more typical dress and is just as flattering on you. 

     

     

    I actually think if you could wear an extra crinoline in #1 and poof it out a bit more, it would be a winner.

    I like dress number two best on you, you look beautiful!  But which one do YOU feel most beautiful in?  I think that is what matters most 🙂

    I love both! Which are you leaning towards? Style wise I love #1 – it’s gorgeous! Number 2 is great as well though and makes you *extra* hourglassy!

    I normally vote away from the fluffy princess dresses – but this one looks so fantastic on you I had to pick it!

    I voted for number 2. I’d add a deeper sweetheart neckline to it though. The girls look fantastic in number 1!

    @BookwormBride2Be:  Re the seams, while it would be my preference not to see them, they look better than I have seen on other dresses. I think it’s because the way your dress has lots of straight line details (sweeping down on neckline, horizontal on the waistline), the seams look more natural, like they were designed to be that way.

    I prefer dress 1 in general, but dress 2 is the one that flatters you more. it gives you a lovely waist.

    @BookwormBride2Be:  Dress #2 look great on you! But it all depends on the theme or location of your wedding. I feel like dress #1 is more vintage and dress #2 has more of a princess look. I like dress #2 more!

    You look beautiful in both! I think 1 is a more modern style while 2 is more traditional. Which suits you?

    I honestly think you look equally great in both, but they are two greatly different dresses.  I would go with the one that fits the feel of your wedding more.   If you still can’t decide based on that, I’d got with #1 because you could have a lot of fun accessorizing that one.
