    The coral dress for sure. The other one is too busy and will take the attention away from your face.

    The coral dress will look better in your pictures.  I wore a yellow dress w/ red shoes and the colors helped the pictures to pop.

    I personally don’t love either on you…you look like you have a really nice figure, and neither of them show it off.  Of the 2, I agree the coral is the best fit, but I still don’t think either is overly flattering.  Our photographer gave us some guidlines before ours e-pics.  She said steer clear of loud, busy, large prints, darker colours look best as they allow your face to be the focal point.

    I like both dresses, but I selected keep looking. I think the coral one is pretty and the best of the two, because the other one is too distracting and could cause problems when photographing. But, I think you may be able to find something that might be a bit more flattering (sorry, just my opinion).

    I agree with Take the Reins, you need something that will flatter your figure better.

    Scap it!  They are cute dresses to wear, but I don’t think either will make you happy in your pics!

    Go for something more figure flattering (it’s the hip area I don’t like on these dresses more than the waist on either, even on the rail skinny, straight as a board model)  I don’t think taking the waist in will help much.  Also, choose something less loud, a softer colour, larger but more subtle pattern, something that will draw the eye to the face vs the outfit.  Both are too loud, in my non-expert opinion lol!  YOU are supposed to be the star, not your outfit.

    My photographer said choose plain/darker clothing and add vibrant/large/pretty accessories.

    From a photographer’s standpoint, I agree with some of the PP, I would rethink your outfit.  If I had to pick I would go with the pink one.

    I would def avoid white and the print fabric.  also, you should have at least your shoulders covered.  The eyes are drawn to skin, this isn’t a glamour shoot and you don’t want the focus on your body.

    @littlegraykitten:

    I LOVE the one form the Loft, if it were a darker colour.  VERY cute, flirty yet not over the top…
