    I definitely think the ballgown will be the best suited. For a traditional wedding, I think the fitted dress is too “sexy”. You look amazing in it, but for me (and I’m no prude), it would be too exposing. If it were just the low cut back or just the cut out front, it would be more modest, but with both… well… I have bathing suits that cover my top half more, and I save those to wear around my grandmothers. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    THAT BALLGOWN IS GORGEOUS!

    Sure, they’re both great. You’ll look great in whatever you choose. But personally, my vote is with the ballgown.

    Both are beautiful, and both look incredible on you! I think you should go with the ballgown though, since you said you feel more bridal and comfortable in it, and ultimately that’s the most important thing! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I agree with the PP above who said there’s not many times you’ll get to wear a ballgown in the future vs the opportunites to wear a slim gown are many! 

    I say ballgown all the way!

    I couldn’t decide either! I ended up getting a trumpet gown with an overskirt! A tulle overskirt on that fitted gown would be stunning!unnamed_(2)1

    There’s something about the cut and the gorgeous lace pattern of the ballgown that just works really beautifully with your tattoos.

    love the ballgown shape on you, but the pattern reminds me of fish scales.

    the fitted looks great also so that has my vote!

    youmaysayimadreamer :  You have one of those figures that looks amazing in both dresses! I voted ballgown. To me, it looks more classic. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I voted for the first dress, the quality seems much higher. I think you have the body for a fit and flare or sheath dress, but not that particular dress – the lace is too big IMO and it seems lower quality.

    I’m usually drawn to fitted dresses (and wore one myself) but there is something magical about that ballgown. You truly look amazing in both, however.

    My god you look unbelieavable! In BOTH! My vote is for the ballgown, it’s stunning, so couture and showstopping, not your traditional wedding ballgown. 

    The fitted dress shows off your gorgeous figure, and is a sexy dress, but you only get 1 wedding day. And i feel like you can wear that fitted dress in a different colour on another day, but there’s not really any other day you can wear a ballgown and look like a couture queen!

    yaara :  I was also thinking the same thing about the pattern of the lace on the ballgown, even though I still voted for it. I was thinking snake skin though….

    OP: I still think ballgown, however I’d maybe look for one with a different lace.

    Oh wow, you look amazing in both dresses!

    That said, I prefer the ballgown.  Not because I had one myself, but because the fitted dress will likely be uncomfortable by the end of the day.  I also find ballgowns more romantic and I love the way the skirt swooshes when you dance.

    I loved my ballgown dress and since you said that’s what you were originally thinking of going with, you may have regret going with a completely different style.
