    Tough call, both are gorgeous, but I picked the second one 🙂

    Second one! Though you really couldn’t go wrong with either.

    They look very similar to me. My vote is for the first one, I’m not liking the sleeves on the second.

    Both of those are great, but the way you talk about them, you don’t seem to be in love with either! That’s why I opted for keep looking 🙂

    I like the 1st one better because I’m not crazy about the sleeves on the 2nd. They are both pretty but I would say keep looking!

    I like 1, but 2, in my opinion, looks quite dated and doesn’t really flatter you anyway.

    ETA: the fit problem in number 1 is addressed by ordering the dress in the proper size and having it altered appropriately. And, I agree, 2 makes you look young… in not the good way.

    I agree with you on the weird fit of number 1.  (Maybe it’s a size thing?  I don’t know.)  And number 2 is nice, but if you’re not in love, go ahead and shop around for a little while longer.  You’ve got months until it is imperative that you order your dress.

    I would try some different stores, and if you keep thinking about one of these come back! If anything, its fun to look into different designers and stores. I allllmost bought a dress at Davids Bridal – twice! I had gone three seperate times and found two completely different dresses. Then I decided I should try at least one non-davids bridal store. and I’m so glad I did- it was fun to have another exprience and I found a third dress that I loved even more and became my dress! (and its comparable in price to DB too!)

    #1 is most likely a size issue, so having a seamstress work on it would probably make a huge difference. I would actually talk to one before buying the dress though, just to be sure. I’m not a fan of the second one at all.

    I think you can do better than these two…

    I’m not loving where the peaks of the first dress are hitting you, I would say it’s a size thing, but I can see your back in the mirror and it seems to fit pretty well, so I just think the proportions are off.  

    The second one covers too much of your chest, the straps are in a weird place, and as a PP suggested, I find the chiffon break-away front to be kind of dated looking.

    Have you thought about sweetheart with a gentler curve at the top like this:

    http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Tiered-Organza-A-Line-with-Beaded-Floral-Bodice-WG3196_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Silhouette-A-Line

    or this

    http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Gossamer-Gown-with-Drop-Waist-and-Floral-Appliques-PK3285_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Silhouette-A-Line

     

    I feel like the drooped waist in that second one would really emphasize your small waist, and  still give you the butt coverage you`re looking for.

     

    *Note:  I didnt spend a lot of time surfing, so there may still be better dresses at Davids for you, but I just wanted to illustrate the style I was referring to.

    @MissNoodles:  totally agree, a sweetheart neckline, no straps, drop waist.

    I don’t love either of them, but I agree that #2 is a younger girl’s dress.  I wouldn’t have thought prom right away, but it’s the only thing I could think of after you mentioned it.
