I really like the first one! I think it makes your waist look small, but that might just be because that sample fits you better than the second one does.

I’m quite top heavy too, so I see what you friend means with the first dress, but it doesn’t really bother me either as long as you get a nice corset for support. 

I think you can find similar dresses with better built in structure. My dress has a huge elastic hook-closure strap inside the bustier than provides a ton of support in addition to the overall shape and boning of the dress. That is what I think you should look for. I also think that the second dress, while totally gorgeous, falls at an unflattering point on your waistline. It seems to accentuate your hips and hide your waist, unlike the first one that shows off a more narrow waistline. Have you tried any dresses with a drop waist?

They are both pretty, but I really love the first one.

The way Dress one is cut in the back is much more flattering, but I love the lace on dress number 2.  I love how dress one is flowy and looks effortless, but the bust line on dress 2 fits better at the moment. And I can see how dress one makes you a bit top heavy, but that is only from the front and can be fixed.  From the back dress 2 makes you look top heavy.  They are both beautiful dresses on you.  🙂

you could say that dress #1 is #1. It’s amazing. You will knock the socks off your Fiance.

The first dress gives you a killer waist and a lovely hourglass figure.  The second one is very “meh”.
