I guess I should’ve included the sleeveless pictures in the original post! If you guys don’t mind voting again would you take the second to do so? I seriously am having tons of trouble deciding!
I have my dress narrowed down to two choices, and I’m just not sure which one suits me better. I am 5’3″ on a good day and I have very broad shoulders and hips, so I’ve narrowed down my favorite dress type to a drop waist ballgown. What I love about these two dresses is all the beading and the fact that the line between bodice and skirt is blurred (i.e. no defined by a straight line across). Iguess i’m just wondering if I can really pull off the Allure (seeing as how there’s so much going on and I am so small) or if I should stick with the dress I originally fell in love with, Belle by Alfred Angelo. Any input bees?
added: Belle w/o sleeves:
Hopefully this time the results wont be skewed!! Thanks so much for all your help bees!!

You look gorgeous in both dresses but the Allure has something special about it. Can’t quite put my finger on it, but I really love it on you!

I think the Allure gown looks absolutely STUNNING on you. The other gown is pretty without the straps, but I think the skirt looks too plain.

My personal fav is the Allure but I guess it really comes down to if you want a full smoother skirt or one with texture. You look amazing in both dresses so I can see why you’re having difficulty choosing one over the other.

To me, without the sleeves, both dresses are equally beautiful on you. I had originally voted for the Allure, because I find the sleeves take away from your shape. Without the sleeves, the Belle looks as stunning on you. Both dresses are beautiful. I think at this point, if it was me, I would go with the one I love the most because honestly BOTH are stunning.

I personally still like the Allure best. The ballgown on the belle just seems to ‘poof’ out too much at your waist, making you look really short. Just MHO!!

I think you look great in both dresses! I like the Belle with no sleeves. The Allure is my favorite because I LOVE ruffles, and I think it adds a modern twist. I also think you look taller because the skirt (while still full) doesn’t look quite as full as the Belle. The Belle might be more timeless though. I’m not a huge fan of the top tulle layer on the Belle, but that’s just personal preference, I know plenty of people that love that kind of detail.

I think the Allure looks beautiful on you. I think the Belle without the sleves is better than with the sleves, but the Allure takes the cake. I don’t think it overpowers you either.

I still think that the Allure is the winner!

I changed my vote from the Belle with no sleeves to the Allure. I think before, the Belle was the first one I saw, and it looked AMAZING on you, so I got stuck on it. But now that I’m looking at both together again, I think the Belle is very soft and romantic, but the Allure is romantic AND really glamorous.

I actually love Belle without the sleeves, I love the simplicity and the fullness of the Belle. But both dresses look fantastic on you, and I really don’t think you could go wrong either way!

Definitely the Allure…as that is my dress also! Plus, you look absolutely fabulous in it!
