@saray:  I think that there can be fit issues with any dress, and they are more pronounced with dresses that don’t have any type of distraction. A ruched dress is a lot more forgiving, though, since it already has those kinds of folds, so minor issues will be swallowed up. I bought a lace mermaid, but I got one that has an overlay so any issues won’t really be seen.

ETA you might even have bigger issues with the first dress from accidental, last minute weight loss than from bloating or weight gain

@saray:  Well, good and yes, now is the time to ask opinions because these photos will last forever 🙂 

Obviously not everyone agrees with me but I really think that first one looks stunning on you, VERY flattering. I don’t think you look a “tad plus-sized” I think you look curvy and totally “hour-glassy” which I think is the best figure to have!

I think you look awesome! If you want a new one to try, the Mikaella 1406 is super flattering on all body types imho- this is not me in this pic:

I love the first one. Beautiful. Try on maggie Sotteros divina. It’s breathtaking! And sexy !! And the corset and non shiny material (opal organza) is super flattering.

First of all…..gorgeous dress!!  It looks killer on you.  That can totally be fixed with tailoring.  My dress came in huge and had the same crease.  They fixed it.

Here is my fit n flare dress.  It shows a small crease but this was taken while rushing to get out of the room as we were late.

This one shows the front better.

PS…you have a great figure….go for the first one.  Beautiful!

Ive got big ol boobies and a little pouch too!! I would look in to corsets for bravissimo and those funny long leg tummy sucker panty things. Smooth lines everywhere!. That way you can feel all kinds of confident and rock dress 1!
