girlandherpearl :  wow love the slitless version! Agree with PP that the first dress looks really heavy and like drapery.

I personally love the first dress, and you can easily have some fabric added on that plunge around the cleavage if you want. At the same time, though, you should definitely go with what feels like YOU, the dress you will look back at in pictures and smile. But, since you asked for our opinions, I am team #1

The dress you have is gorgeous on you and IMO looks far more expensive than the other dress.

Love both of them, but the second does nothing for your figure.  Dress #1 100%!

Fellow rectangle person — I personally prefer the first dress on you.  When I tried sheath and more fitted dresses they did nothing for my figure either. I also think it may be that #2 fits you a bit better off the rack and that you’ll love #1 once it’s tailored for you. I know I was torn between two dresses and came to realize I think I liked one more because it fit better as is but that the other, one tailored would better match my proportions.

Another option would be — if you’re going to get the second dress anyway, why not wear both? At this point having tailored the first one you won’t get as much for it and since you’ve paid for both dresses anyway why not wear them both?

I’m loving the first dress in your size! Obviously you need to be comfortable in it, but I think it’s beautiful…good luck!

Nope,  still love number one , though I like  the slitless  version of 2  better than the slit one,  it’s the  nightdressy bodice I don’t like.

The second one is pretty but I just cannot get over the first one.

Another vote for the first one! Gorgeous! I don’t love the slit on the second one
