    I think they’re both pretty, but I like the first one best.  The chiffon is more unusual.

    I like #1 better too. The gathering is pretty. They are both quite similar so it will be interesting to see how the votes go.

    They do almost look identical. I too, like #1 on you better.

    Monk6552:  Something about the neckline of the 2nd does not look right, but I might would look a few more places. If you are going to choose one of these, definitely the 1st.

    Out of the two, I prefer dress #2, but I think you should keep looking and find something you love.

    Monk6552:  

    Out of the two, I prefered the first, the ruching on the bodice is very attractive on you. The second dress  just looked weird to me- I think it’s because it only had lace on the skirt. I’d prefer to see lace all over or just on the bodice. Also I think I could see the boning of the corset in the second dress.

    If neither dress is blowing your socks off…here are some suggestions

    Have you tried a different shape (like a fit and flare or a trumpet with a sweet heart neckline?)

    Have you tried a sweetheart a-line that is a different fabric? (Satin, head-to-toe lace, or whatever else might blow your socks off).

    I liked the first one slightly more from the first picture, but after the closer picture I liked it a lot more! I think it’s beautiful. If you don’t love it though, keep looking!

    Monk6552:  I love them both, that’s my favorite silouhette and it looks fantastic on you.  I’m partial to the first, it looks a lot like my dress, but they’re both beautiful.

    I like the second one best, but I think you should keep looking. Both look beautiful on you but there is something about the sweetheart neckline that makes your chest and shoulders look a little wide. I like the look of the strapless gown on you but I think a different neckline would really make you shine.

    Ok, here are a few necklines I found that are still strapless. Ignore my actual dress picks because I was only looking at the necklines. It’s not that I think you wouldn’t look good in a sweetheart, it’s just something looks off with the dresses you tried on. Did they fit properly? I just went to a wedding where the bride wore a sweetheart just like your first picture, but it was loose and therefore made her chest look flat and wide. If it had been tighter, the neckline would have made her look nice and curvy. Maybe if you tried them on again and tried to get the top tighter? I don’t know. I think you wear the dresses very well except for that one little detail! Wish I could be more help, and please know that I do not mean to offend!
