They are both beautiful on you, but the first is AMAZING!

The Vincia is beautiful on you. Love those lacy straps and the rouching!

They both look gorgeous on you!  I think I slightly prefer the Maggie, but I don’t think you can go wrong.

I am built very similarly to you, and you’re really making me wish that I had at least considered trying on some gowns with a slimmer silhouette! You look fabulous in the these dresses! I love the fit of the first gown on you especially!! ๐Ÿ™‚

However, I honestly think you can do even better than both of these dresses. I would encourage you to try on more dresses in the silhouette of the first one, including those in some different, more-matte-finish-looking fabrics (I am not a fan of the shiny satin from which the first dress is made, nor am I a huge fan of the way that the train flows directly out of the bottom of the corset. I also am not a big fan of the pick ups at the bottom of the second dress.)

I’m thinking I would love to see you in a gown that merges the best of each of these two gowns:

* slim-fitting like the first gown
* strapless
* sweetheart neckline
* ruched
* corset back (not necessarily a requirement, but you look good in that style.)
* less shiny/more of a matte-finish fabric

Congrats on finding a silhouette that really showcases your figure!

I think the first one is more figure flattering than the second one. They both look good though so if your still shopping keep going in that direction. If your voting as in these are the final two I would say the first one and it will look even better once it’s fitted. You’ll be beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

@lauramae89:  Well that is all that matters! If YOU love it — and it really does look awesome on you! — you should definitely go for it! ๐Ÿ™‚
