Maybe my eyes are playing tricks but I feel like I look shorter and not as proportional with this dress when compared to my other dress. Do you think I need a belt for dress #1?
This is my other dress., dress #2. It’s a long story but I have two ball gowns now. Please let me know which one looks better on me. I am more confused than ever .
Dress #1 has cathedral train which can be bustled. #2 is not bustled

Both are beautiful – but I’m a sucker for more of a ball gown look. I mean, I don’t really prefer the massive ball gowns, but dress #2 is just enough on your figure. It really makes your waist look tiny and I love the simplicity. I also really love dress #1, but not a big fan of the bustle. Just my opinion though. You really can’t go wrong with either! Also, I don’t think either of these NEED belts, but would look great with one if you decided to wear one 🙂

You look great in both dresses but I feel the second one outshines the first. Somehow it does seem to make you look taller and better proportioned. I vote “belt” for the first dress. It just seems to “finish” it off bettter.

dkfls: Dress 1 does it for me. I prefer the shape and fit of it on you.

I usually like more fitted dresses but I prefer #2 the ballgown on your shape!

Yes, dress 2 , tho both are beautiful. Neither needs a belt IMO.

I love dress #1 I don’t think it necessarily needs a belt but if you wanted more bling that would be the way to go.

I like dress number 1 with and without the belt!

I love number 2 because of the amazing skirt and I think it really draws attention to your itsy waist! But if you go with number 1, I definitely think a belt adds to it a lot.

I like dress #2 better, but I were to pick dress #1, it would be without a belt.

I like #2 better to be honest…. but they both look great on you! If you were to pick #1 I’d probably wear a belt. Good luck!

Normally I don’t like ball gowns, but you ROCK number 2!!! It does give you a better proportioned figure than number 1 on its own. Number 1 def needs a belt. You look gorgeous btw!

While I am typically drawn to a drop waist gown, I love dress number 2 on you. I think the ball gown style makes you look taller. It’s nice to have to decide between two gowns that both look lovely. 🙂
