    I like Dolly because of the gorgeous fabric (so sheeny!) and bodice. If the Allure is near you though, def try out just to see!

    I think the lace gives the Allure a softer look. The Dolly Couture one is really adorable, but it says “vintage” more than “tea party” to me. I think the Allure would fit a bit better with the theme.

    I love the Allure! I think it’s very garden party type, especially with the flower looking details. I think it has more pizzaz than the Dolly too.

    I like the Allure better. The sheer overlay makes it look a little softer to me, which seems appropriate for a shorter wedding dress. I also love the fabric rosette detail, it makes it look more “special.” However… it is kind of trendy right now (the flower detail) and I know a lot of dresses have a similar look. That doesn’t bother me at all, but if you want to look more timeless then I guess the Dolly would be the way to go.

    Go try on the Allure dress if it is available and see how you feel in it. If you love it, get it. If not, go with the other one. I tried on sooooo many dresses and it really helped me choose.

    Ooo, that Allure one is really nice.  If you’ve found a place that has it near you and haven’t put down money on the Dolly, definitely go try it on.  That may answer the question for you (and post pictures!  I love seeing other short wedding dresses 🙂 )

    eeeek I like the Allure 2401.

    I love the drape of the fabric I think it looks very flattering with the layering it has at the waist.

    I think the Dolly dress would be better given that you are “busty”. It would balance you more.

    @Miss Tattoo: It’s hard to know until you see it on. I felt the same way, but found that v-necks showed WAY more cleavage then the sweetheart/modified sweetheart necks.

    @Miss Tattoo: You should definitely try on some sweetheart necklines. I actually found that most of them were better than the straight necklines, which tend to give you a uniboob, lol.

    The only type to stay away from are the really, really deep sweethearts because then you’re falling out :). I tried on a ton of dresses, though, and that only happened to me a couple times.

    Also, I’ve tried on necklines like on the Dolly Couture, and I definitely was spilling over a ton on them. If they don’t have a good return policy, I would be really careful about buying it without trying it on (FWIW, I’m a 38G, lol).

    I always thought sweetheart necklines were good for busty women? I thought that shape flattered my big bust.

    They are both beautiful, but I’m leaning towards the Allure. 🙂

    I personally love the Allure. I love the neckline and bodice and it gives the model such an hourglas figure!

    However, the Allure is very soft, feminine and romantic.

    The Dolly is feminine but can be edgy too.

    Which are you more like?

    ETA: @Evie19:

    I think sweetheart necklines enhances all bustlines. I’m teeny tiny and it really helped! 🙂
