    I  think the flare looks just in the right spot on you: it balances your hips and shoulders and makes your torso look long & lean, which I think makes you look taller overall, something the natural waist does not.

    Are you standing on a pedestal in the first pics? I would just worry that maybe once it’s hemmed the skirt part might be a bit short looking if so, but I’m no expert!

    I actually think the Allure silhouette makes you look taller!  I think it’s super flattering on you– go for it!

    I just wanted to say, if you haven’t had that “this is it” feeling, don’t stop looking!  I WISH someone had told me this while I was shopping.  Instead, I chose the one I liked the most at the time, but wish I had kept looking.

    You’ll be stuck with serious dress regret if you settle!

    Go with the one that makes you feel like a bride.   My family were luke warm on my dress too, said “it was too much dress”.   I bought the one they liked, then ended up buying the one I wanted.   I am short (5’3), but I’m also plus size, so I kinda looked like a marshmallow.   Bought myself some 5″ platforms, and I don’t care.   You only do this once, do what you want.

    Get what you love because your happiness is what makes you look good. Not the style.  But that aside, I think the first dress does look better. I think the fit/flare lengthens your torso! it’s lovely.
