Some of you may remember me from a previous post…
I’m still on a mission to find the dress… Would love your feedback on these two!
1) Monique Lhuillier with/without belt
2) Melissa Sweet for Priscilla of Boston tiered, beaded
As always, I appreciate your comments and candor.

@chateau2013: I think that both areequally flattering. And, both have similar fabric (which I like. )
Now I am not a fan of horizontal lines on the skirt. They always remind me of SPanish Senorita dresses. But I think that dress number 2 is really pretty, and I think that the lace on it is prettier and richer looking than in dress #1.
So–I think that fo rme dress #2 has the edge.

I love the first dress with the belt! I also love the veil shown with that dress in the third pic. The melissa sweet is also beautiful (I love how the lace sparkles) but I’m not a huge fan of the layers at the bottom. Plus the bodice of the first one looks gorgeous on you. :).

I really like the Monique Lhuillier with the belt. It looks nice on its own, but the belt really makes it pop. The other dress looks nice on you, but I think the Monique Lhuillier looks amazing on your body.

#1 for sure! I dont like the tiers on that material . my dress was tiered too but it was alencon lace so it was a bit more structured? idk if thats the right word.. but the second one looks like the tiers are just hanging there. #1 is super gorg w the belt! If you are looking for tiered try Rivini Dari that was my dress and its TO DIE FOR gorgeous!

I actually LOVE #2!!! I think it flatters your figure more.But I would go with a different belt. I don’t really like how #1 looks from the side.

#1!! I think #2 doesn’t flatter your figure as much because it does not hug you underneath the chest and give you that curve that #1 does if that makes any sense.

I think both are equally flattering, but I much prefer the Lhuillier, with the belt. The asymmetrical ruching/draping is much more elegant. I find the tiers of the second the dress (particularly the first seam, at the drop waist) kind of distracting for some reason. I also have a personal preference for non-beaded lace, more delicate. 🙂

#2 is sooo romantic and soft on you but I’m loving your figure in #1. Definitely #1 for me!
