Hi, after trying on so many dresses, I’m down to choosing between 2. But, I’m so torn. I love both designers and both dresses!
Dress 1 – Martina Liana 377 – full beaded bodice, gorgeous! and very interesting textured skirt. Very unique!
DRESS 2 – Alvina Valenta 9211 – Very unique too with the silvery bodice. And I LOVE the sparkling tulle (8 layers). It’s simple but very elegant.
I need to make a decision in the next day or so. So Please help, which one looks best! 🙂 Thanks!

I really love the tulle on the second dress, but the first dress looks so gorgeous on you! By the way, I love that boutique! I went there myself when I was shopping for a dress. Courtney is so awesome!

Can I be 100% honest here? I think the second one swallows you up. It seems like too much dress for your frame. I like the silhouette of the first one better 🙂

I would choose #1. I love the back of 2 but not really the front. I also think the bodice of 1 is gorgeous!

@SaraP2012: That was exactly what I thought!

I ordered my Martina about 2 months ago so I may be a bit partial. I tried on dress 377 and the bodice is really beautiful!!!! I think you look incredible in it so I voted for it.

Wow, you are the second persone in the past couple weeks deciding between 2 dresses and one of them being the martina liana 377. I vote for that one, dress # 1, which is the dress I plan on buying! It is a really beautiful gown, and it also looks good on you, the second one does swallow you up a bit. Go with your gut though. But I do love the first one!

I voted for the Alvina dress. The Martina dress always looks so stiff to me.

I voted dress 1, it’s so flattering on you and I’m a fan of that unusual skirt! 🙂

I absolutely voted for the first dress. I think it’s very pretty, very visually interesting, well proportioned for you, and quite flattering to your figure.
I don’t want to be harsh, but I am going to be very honest to say that I do not care for the second dress at all. Although, in person, it may have some beautiful elements, I do not find the overall shape of the dress to be nearly as flattering to your figure (including the bust and waist areas), and I find the design of the skirt to be extremely distracting and confusing. It almost looks as if someone were in the midst of doing an alteration on the front of the gown or as if something has taken a large bite out of the top layer of the bottom-right side of the skirt.

i’m not really sure which way to vote….
there is something about no.1 that i just don’t think looks right on you. i think maybe overall it’s a bit ‘busy’ & the ruffled skirt looks like it’s swallowing you a bit. i think the shape of the Alvina bodice works better on you. i love the deeper sweetheart shape & the wrapover detail. i also love the sash on no.2.
maybe if you were wearing a wider sash on no.1 & the length of the skirt was adjusted i’d prefer it a little more.
the detail on the front of the skirt of the alvina wouldn’t be to my taste at all, sorry.
on balance i’d say no.2, because i like the simplicity of it. ok, i’ll vote no.2!

The first one looks amazing, and it’s so different. I love it

Thanks all for your comments. I see now what you mean about the fit of dress 1 vs dress 2 on me. This looks like it should be an easy choice. Oh, I must get over my fear of commitment! Lol
