I am currently deciding between 2 beautiful but very different dresses. Both would be in white. I want something timeless and flattering on a longer, slender figure. Which one do you think I should pick?
Lazaro (even though this pick is the sherbet color, I would choose white):

Have you actually tried either of these on?

I generally prefer the first one, but they set such different moods it’s hard to compare. Are you planning the type/location of ceremony/reception after you pick the dress? I only ask because I might prefer the latter (they’re both lovely) for a beach or city-modern wedding.

I think you really need to try them on first to determine which looks best on YOUR figure.
For me personally the natural waist dresses didn’t do me any justice. They cut me in half making me look bigger than I am. Here are a couple of photos for your reference (obviously I’m not “slender” but you get the idea).
Not my dress:
My dress (dropped waist ball gown):

Yeah I agree that you need to try them on. I loved the drop waist look, but I am short and did not realize how short it made me look until I tried it on!

I have tried them on and I like them both! I originally leaned toward the drop waist but think maybe the Lazaro ball gown is more of an “effect” dress and maybe more timeless. The reception will be outside on the back patio of a country club.

@rosea22: Hmm with that in mind I would say dress two. The first dress seems more ballroom/cathedral type venue to me. The second dress would be gorgeous with the right accessories for a country club outdoor wedding.

there is nothing timeless about the liancarlo. if you want timeless pick the ballgown!

I love the first one! I love the sherbet color too!

I personally love ball gowns and dislike dropped waists. To me, they look odd, but’s JMO.

I’m all about the Lazaro. If I were to do my wedding all over again and go back through the dress selection process, I would insist on trying that dress on! 🙂

I’m also not a fan of dropped waist ballgowns. Sorry to brides that have them, but I think they do something funky with the proportions of the body and just seem off. Natural waist all the way!
