@saray:  I think the first one looked better than the second. The second makes you look a little boxy, when you have such a gorgeous figure!

I would say go with the first, and perhaps use some spax or even a corset or something to help pull in your tummy area, then get alterations so its flat.

I love the first one.

Buy a really nice underbust corset, and go try the first one again!

the dress looks great on your boobs too

Second one, not so much

And also, if you do go with the first one.. make sure you can SIT, comfortable!

I’ve seen too many ladies get fitted dresses and not realize they couldn’t sit, eat, and be comfortable!

@saray:  OMG, I’m obsessed with your body! First of all, that first dress looks stunning on you. I read the title of this thread and did not expect that first picture. You look AMAZING! Not knowing you at all, I would say, that’s your dress!!! I’m probably more of less the same as you 5 foot, 150 pounds and I haven’t found ANYTHING that looks half as good as that dress on you. You don’t even look short at all!!

Your curves are awesome and the first dress shows them off really well, I think. I second the corset, just make sure it’s long enough because I’ve tried some on that didn’t quite rein in my “undertummy” lol. I also like the spanx that are knee-length and go all the way up to under the boobs. Honestly though, the first dress looks amazing on you even without a corset or anything underneath.

I think the second dress looks better on you, but I do think you can do better. I would try to stay away from those really smooth, tight fitting mermaids because of that issue (which I believe I have seen even afte the dress is fitted because of weight fluctuations before the wedding due to stress, etc.)
