Can’t see them (stupid web filter at work). Add pics if you can and a poll!

I like both. I prefer the lacy one, but they’re both good.

I think the lacey dress is definitely re-wearable (and pretty).

I love the first dress in purple or peach. I think the purple may be a better color for different skin types?

The unattainable dream!…lol.

Personally, I think the first one is more “rewearable”, but, honestly, if all my BMs bought the same dress, I don’t know if they would really wear it again. We run in the same circles, so I think they would avoid it. 

Why don’t you ask your BMs how they feel? You could poll them. Or, give guidelines & ask for suggestions. That would be more likely to ensure that it is “rewearable” to them (since it’s really an issue of personal preferences).

Purple lacy dress, I will never wear the wrap dress….

I definitely gave up on the “wear it again” idea, but a lot of that was because the compromise involved floor length dresses.  I was also vetoed on black *sigh.*

 

It’s not 100% something that I would wear, but I know tonnes and tonnes of people who would look amazing in that.  It would make a great summer dress.  Personally I’d pick the purple, but that’s mostly because I’m the palest person you’ll ever meet and can’t wear peach to save my life.  That said, if your BMs skin tones are darker than mine, the peach might be awesome.  

I prefer the lacy dresses, but the pictures don’t have them in plus sizes and I always find it hard to extract from “model” to “real human.”

 

My 2 cents, take it or leave it!

Unfortunately the purple and peach lace dresses are both out of stock. I think the style will work great for them though.

The wrap dress from Torrid would be ok except for the hem- not a fan of handkerchief hems.

I really love that lace dress! (and the price is fantastic!). I wonder though, if the wrap dress may be more flattering?

Maybe send pics to your girls and ask which they prefer!

Ask them for their input then.  I personally wouldn’t wear either again.

I like the lace dresses! both colors (but it said they were both out of stock 🙁 so that would be no good)

I like the lace dress a lot better for a wedding. I actually have this dress in dark blue and I love it!!
