    I prefer dress #2….. It’s very very flattering on you!!

    They are both pretty, but #2, although flattering and different, has an awful lot of ruching. It doesn’t look very comfortable . . .

    I picked dress #2. Both dresses are flattering, but this is even more flattering. 

    I wouldn’t worry about the lack of features – you could probably add some. For example, adding crystals or beads down the lines of the pleats on the bodice would be nice. And I don’t think the bandage pleating would look too dated, even though it is pretty much a 2000s-2010s thing.

    If you really like dress #1 – and I suspect that might be more your personal style – then I would suggest converting the top to a sweetheart neckline, which you should be able to do. That would be more flattering to your boobs.

    As I feel obligated to point out anytime I comment on something like this, I am a guy, and therefore my opinions may be safely discounted without fear of offense.

    Dress #2 is far more flattering.

    It emphasizes your figure, particularly in your hips; makes for a much nicer curve than dress #1. 

    Usually, honestly, I hate this style of dress (dress #2,) simply because I have a weird thing about symmetry, but – again with the hip thing – the WAY this one is asymmetrical draws attention to your curves, rather than to the dress.

    If it’s at all comfortable, that’s the one.

    I don’t think it will look dated in later life; granted the style is kind of a fad, but that doesn’t mean anything. The dress itself looks great on you, and that’s the part anyone will see looking at your photos

    I think dress 2 has a little something extra that makes it stand out.  Personally, I think dress 1 just looks kind of plain, and would need some serious bling to rival dress 2!

    I personally like dress #2 better but I would continue shopping.  You have an awesome figure!  Maybe try a different silhouette?  I would suggest a dropped A-line or a fit and flare for your figure too.. just to mix it up a bit!

    I don’t like number 1 at all.  Its just your typical “eh” dress. looks like every other wedding dress. you have a nice figure. You can for sure find something better.


    I like number 2. it compliments your figure. I think its very classic.

    Dress two definitely shows your figure more – I think maybe the neckline on #1 isn’t as flattering as it could be. Gotta have a train girl!!

    @RainbowHope:  I voted to look into having a dress made. I do like dress #2 better, but the straight across neckline just isn’t flattering. A sweetheart would be much more so.
