    The first pic with the wider ribbon!  It makes your shape and your waist look awesome!  The 2nd picture kind of looks undone or something.

    Lovely dress. The 1st is much better. The 2nd makes it look like you had to let it out at the last moment b/c it was too small…. the 1st makes you look fantastic.

    The 1st one. It enhances the detailing on the dress, whereas the 2nd one sort of takes focus away from the dress and toward the ribbon.  Also the 2nd one kinda looks like you “let it out” after wearing it all night.  😉  Gorgeous detailing on the dress btw

    Your dress is so pretty! I’d also say the first one. Gives your dress a much better shape and definition.

    I love lace-up backs. Mine has one too.

    Every loop!  It gives more structure to the dress & you are less likely to pop a loop that day.  I think either the thin or the thick tie would be fine, but I say you should go every loop.

    I like the thicker ribbon… goes with the dress better… The dress is gorgeous and give you a nice shape !!

    What would the first picture (every loop) look like with a thinner ribbon?

    #1 looks much better. I love the look of the wider ribbon.  The second one looks like it wasn’t laced up properly

    #1, definitely.  The second one, to me, looks like you didn’t lace it right.

    They both look great, but I chose number 1 because it looks more ‘put together’. You have a beautiful dress!

    I agree with ceamoste.  I think the first looks more put together and elegant.  I love the detailing on your dress!
