Both dresses are great, but I LOVE the first dress. Is this the one you think doesn’t photograph as well? I think it photographs great! You look great in it, and I’m sure it’ll be perfection in your size.

I love the first dress and I think it does cinch in your waist! I know nothing about corsets but I just want to disagree with you about it not photographing well, it looks beautiful and you look gorgeous in it!!! You seem to love it more so go with that one.

And I’m not a huge fan of the lace skirt in the second, I feel that is odd tbh.

You look beautiful in both, but I think you could find something that does even more to flatter your figure. Of the two, I prefer the second. Your waist looks much smaller in it and I don’t personally like the diagonal tiers on teh first dress, especially with the embellishments along the edges.

I really like the first one on you.  I see what you mean about the corset but I had to look a few times to really see the difference. One thing I think I see in the pictures is that the 2nd dress seems to have more structure.  Is that true or just how it looks? I really like corseted dresses too and tried on a bunch of them. I noticed that each designer and type of material fit a little different. Some of the ones with heavier structure really gave a nice waistline, but were not as comfortable. I’ve also seen a few posts here about how having the right size and good alterations dress makes a huge difference. In your size, it should fit in all the right places and synch a little better where you really want it to.  Is there any chance you can see a dress from the same designer in your size?

@Bainise2013:  You said the first dress was prettier than the second dress. My assumption based off that statement was that you liked the first dress better than the second dress. I like the first dress better, as well. I said it was beautiful. That’s why I said I think you’ve answered your own question. My intent wasn’t sarcastic, I’m sorry if you might have took it that way.
