I vote first dress.  I the lace pattern and neckline are more unique.  The shape also suits you better.

If these 2 are the only options, I’d go with the first. I think the skirt looks luxe but the top is a bit meh. I dont like the second, I dont think it flatters your figure much.

I actually prefer the second. It does look a bit boxy here, but I think it’ll look lovely once it’s tailored in the right areas. Do you have another photo that shows the way the skirt is meant to fall a bit better?

Does it have to be between these two? You have a lovely figure and neither dress is doing anything for you. I say keep looking.

of these two, definitely first – the skirt is so unusual and pretty. I will say though, like another PP, I’m not a huge fan of the top half – the straps remind me of a swimsuit. The second doesn’t do much for your figure, which I can tell is lovely.

I would say neither. I like the bottom half of the first one, but the top half of the second, so would look for something combining both!

Out of these, the 1st one.. but only because of the skirt. Are you doing anymore shopping? I feel like there is a better dress out there for you.

The neckline of the second one is so pretty and much, much more elegant on you. If that dress can be tailored to fit you better, I think it’s the way to go.

I prefer the second, but the sleeves concern me. That type tends to make it impossible to move your arms, especially dancing. Also, you should try it on with proper undergarments before making a final decision. 

The first has a gorgeous skirt, but the top is dowdy and you’ll spend a fortune on alterations because you will have to shorten the skirt from the waist so you don’t lose the lace detail.

Im going with 2 there is something about it… but if you go with 1 may I suggest altering the top to make it strapless but where the lace starts not where the lining starts. So its still higher neckline and you dont lose the pretty lace design.
